I stayed here for 1 night, I was meant to stay longer but as it's low season I was the only person which was not what I was looking for! The facilities are good, food was very good, showers are nice and bed was comfy. I tried to have a wander round the local area but being the only foreigner... More

I stayed here only for òne night. The hostel is very clean, nice beds, nice lady. Aircon works great. Bathrooms are really hot in this season, not very social hostel but good for a short stay. Wouldn't stay too long in Phuket town anyway

I really appreciate the service mind and moral of the staff in Gotum. My friend forgot her golden necklet worth around 500 US dollar in her room. After we checked out from the hostel, we realize we forgot the necklet. So i called the hostel and the staff there ketp it for us.

The owner accommodated us with the taxi from the airport in a fair price. Great location in the middle of the Phuket old town. You can walk to the bus center, local food store and old town area within 5 minutes. Clean and comfortable place. The owner is being very helpful and friendly. Would definitely come back!

I stayed here for 1 night on Monday 10th of March 2014. I stayed in a mixed dorm room. The room is very nice, with air conditioning working very well and the beds were very comfortable. Each set of 2 beds (1 above the other) has a curtain that can be pulled right around the whole bed(s). When I stayed... More

They are really small and it isn't nice if someone use the shower and then you wanna use the toilet, everything... More
