The accommodation was OK, no so good no so bad. It is cheap so consequently the quality is OK. But we are writing here because the customer service has been horrible. First of all they do not accept card even in the website says that they do it. We tried to speak with them about it but they were not... More

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Good vibe in the bar amongst backpackers, cheap, clean and basic rooms, no complaints! Maybe a little noisy, but thats Phuket. For what you pay this place is ideal, travelled as a group of 8 and we all had a great experience here. Places to watch films, computers, pool tables. Within good... More

The hostel is lovely and clean. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. Although the hostel itself is too far away from the main tourist area of Patong Beach - around 40 minutes drive and around 600 baht in a taxi. If you are in your early 20s and wanting to go out drinking, it would be worth paying slightly... More

I stayed here for a first night, attracted by the cheap rate and the location right in the centre of Phuket Town. I arrived in the evening and the lady working this shift doesn't speak good English so it wasn't really a piece of cake to check-in and pointless to try an get any information about the surrounding area.

We only stayed here for one night; in between our stay by Patong beach and leaving for Phi Phi. About 700 baht for a 3 person room with AC. The staff were super friendly and the room was perfectly acceptable for one night. I would recommend either using a silk sleeping bag or mosquito repellent though as quite a few... More

We stayed a couple of nights in a double room. On arrival they upgraded us to an air con room for free. The bed was fantastic! Most comfy bed yet on our six week trip. The room had no view but this didn't matter. The curtains were fab and totally blacked out the room. We slept so well here. Very... More

The staff are young and vibrant people, who quickly become your friends after having a few beers down at the bar. I stayed in a 4 dorm bedroom where the bedding was super clean. The beds themselves were larger than a king single which was awesome and the mattresses were new and comfortable. They air condition the place at night... More

location isnt the best but its still not terrible. I love the staff rooms are clean and air conditioned and the pool table down in the bar hangout area was clutch until they took it out. Not planning on going to phuket again anytime soon as i found it to be my least favorite place in thailand but if i... More
