We stayed with Steve and Lek on a holiday in Thailand to attend our friends' wedding. The wedding party stayed in an expensive resort in Karon but I think we had a better experience. Steve, Lek and the team were welcoming, polite and friendly. Their guesthouse is clean, the rooms have everything you need including a safe, and it is... More

We stayed in Karon to be away from the party scene (despite being sucked in in the end!) and loved it. The room was clean and the downstairs cafe was yummy. Staff were very helpful to book is taxis and things. Price was right for what we got. If you do want to stay here and head to Patong it... More

3 nights here was well worth the money! Not far from the beach and they even let you borrow beach matts and umbrellas free of charge! Owners are also very friendly and welcoming. They also do the best full English outside of England! Well done pineapple guesthouse!

Outstanding clean guesthouse, good oo, booked our ferry to Phi Phi and island tour- best prices around. If you don't want a pool and a great comfy bed this the place for you. It less than than 5 min walk to the beach. Since its on the far end of Karon the beach is less busy.

Stayed there for 4 nights, the staff are helpful and the dorm we stayed in was worth the money. Would recommend especially to English guests looking for a decent full English breakfast. Good location only 5 minutes from the beach and they lend you beach mats, umbrellas etc. Highly recommend.

This was a great little hostel about 10 minutes walk from Karon beach with plenty of positives: Friendly staff 10 minute walk to Karon beach Lots of street food stands and a 7/11 just outside Free umbrellas and beach mats (Karon beach has no shade) Quiet location Fridge in the room Clean rooms The only negatives are that the rooms...

Thanks for the review. I think I understand what you mean by the rooms being thrown together. I think this is due to gradual improvements being made so it's true that nothing matches any more. Our budget doesn't allow for a complete room makeover in one go. Wifi has been up and down a bit, though seems to have stabilised... More

Perfect location right by Karon beach with some lovely restaurants nearby (EAT has the best burgers ever!) The hostel is clean, comfortable and run by a wonderful family who were so helpful and friendly.

The pineapple guesthouse is in a great location tucked off the Main Street but also just a five minute walk to the beach. Rooms are exactly what you would expect for a budget hotel, and clean. Beach towels are available for free to use during your stay which is a plus. Steve and the rest of the staff were a... More

My husband and I have been travelling around Thailand for +2 weeks and by far this has been the best guesthouse! The owner is really friendly and helpful. Location is great if you want quietness and at the same time 5 mins walk to the beach. Karon beach is one of the best beaches in Phuket. Shops and restaurants are... More

Aircon didn't work in the first night. Second night the receptionist turned it on at 9pm and off at 7am, she took the remote so she was the only one in control. Plus, when she turned it on she put 26 degrees Celsius. After a lot of arguing she changed to a lower temperature. Bathroom smells like sewage. Lockers are... More

Unfortunately aircon is difficult to control. We operate it for limited hours only in order to keep our costs, and therefore the guests' costs to a minimum. And yes, we keep it at a medium temperature as some bunks are close to the unit and get too cold if it's below 26 degrees. There are loads of fans anyway, all... More
