It could be ok for the price, but the bed was really hard! I woke up in the morning completely painful. Besides that, the room was ok, there was a good space and the shower was good. But no breakfast. It would be a great cheap option if the bed was just a little better.

Great hostel that's located five minutes from the bus station and market, and ten minutes from old town! We were in a six person bunk bed room for 400 baht (two of us) and liked it. The bathrooms are a bit sketchy, but theres air conditioning and good wifi. Also booking boat tickets from the owner seem to be pretty... More

You get what you pay for. If you need only a bed to sleep and a roof above your head this hostel is just fine for you. Bed could be a little more comfortable. You can hear everything in the next room, even a heavy breathing. Extremely hard to find, this hostel seems to be also a key store. If... More

We booked a private room so when we arrived there and found it in...a meh condition, and it was dull. No window. The bed didn't look comfortable. Ugly decorations. Didn't want to step our bare foot on the floor. And it had no ac, just a fan...we asked an owner for another room but all private rooms were full. So... More

The hostel has an ideal location in center of Phuket Town. A lovely hostess, who always takes care of all her guests needs and gives you free bananas all day long! :) Good food, nice rooms, good laundry service, GREAT Wi-Fi!

We stayed here in a stopover to Koh Phi Phi. We had 6 people and got the private room with a private bathroom. Considering we paid only $7CAD per night, you cannot expect much! It wasn't the cleanest place, but the A/C and wifi were good and the showers were warm. The lady at the front desk was adorable and... More

Generally speaking this hostel is quite dirty. But for thai principles and for the price you pay, this is quite okay. Shared bathroom was really tidy. But we suspected the bedsheets not having been cleaned. We just stayed here for a stopover for our trip to khao lak and the lady at the front was indeed really nice and helpful... More

My boyfriend and I check in yesterday after a long sweaty walk from the bus station. We had booked on Agoda for a very reasonable price and the booking went swiftly so we were happy. The room is clean enough with a strong fan. The reason I'm giving this place only 3 stars is because the lady who checked us... More

A strange mix of industrial unit and family home. Not sure if either is on purpose! The people who run this hostel are lovely and helpful. The dorms are fine and just really good value. There is a bus stop nearby where you can travel cheaply to patong beach. Many pretty and interesting streets nearby, take an early morning walk... More
