The staff doesn't speak English at all (they are Burmese), just a bit of Thai. The owner is rarely on the spot. I asked (in Thai) the price for washing and ironing. Both the receptionist and the owner told me 80 bath/kilo. I double asked if that price (very high!) included ironing, in order to be sure. They said "yes,... More

I reserved a room with a/c and arrived in the evening around 8:30. The room was very clean and large but HOT. it took forever for the a/c to cool it down but my greatest disappointment was the restroom. The walls to the restroom did not meet the ceiling, thus any "noises" emitted while having " personal" time in the... More

I could have written such nice things about this place. No complaints at all about the rooms which were comfortable, air conditioned and quite good value. The family running it were (or seemed) so friendly and nice and it'd be a solid 5-star review if it wasn't for the poor wi-fi. But what they don't seem to realise is by... More

We wandered into this hostel after walking around Phuket on a very very hot day with our back packs on. Price for a triple room was 250 baht per person (£5 each) and the room was fantastic! Air conditioned, private bathroom, western toilet, complimentary shower gel and soap, plus bottled water in room. Very clean, and the staff were amazing!... More

Price is very cheap. As for the price I don't expect much. I travel in a group of more than 10 of us. Some of us get free upgrade of room. Anyway, room is big and clean. However, some of the room's air-con leaks and they manage to fix it temporary. The receptionist is excellent. She is very helpful and... More

The hostel is a reasonable stay for a few days. You have the choice between A/C and fan rooms. Breakfast is included, though very small (and a pice of butter that is cut in half, which is a little embarrassing). If you think about booking a tour in this hotel, don't! You will get ripped of. Usually hotel staff gives... More

Thank you for your feedback, and what we are wondering is where you got the price of 900 baht for a James Bond Island from, so that we'll source our tour package from there as well. It's an unbelievable bargain, indeed! About the Phi Phi Island ferry, our price might not be the lowest in the market, but it is... More

As the name says, the hostel is literally in the old town of Phuket. Staying here allowed me to share a piece of its rich history. Convenient location particularly the nearby town bus terminal with easy access to the famed beaches and bays. The very affordable B & B is simple, peaceful, clean and pleasant. And the helpful, friendly and... More
