I loved this place!! The enviroment in the hotel was really friendly and social. They had a media room which was amazing because we had been traveling for 2 months and needed a little time to rest. They had a HUGE movie selection and comfy couches. They had a nice little restaurant and a cute little garden area. The rooms... More

Very clean hostel, centrally located in Phuket town. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm with 3 other friends. The 'room' was very small with thin partition walls open at the top, so it wasn't very private but it was comfortable. Bathroom was clean and Wifi connection was pretty fast. Overall good value for money but I hear there are some... More

Locals as well, as were the fellow Backpackers passing through. Rooms are perfecly fine, and the location of the hostel is perfect, this is my honest oppinion, and suggest to... More

The common area of this hostel is very impressive and what you see in all the pictures on hostelworld etc. The check-in process was slow - painfully slow. The staff at reception seemed very unorganised, which we later found to be the case every time we had dealings with them (besides the female manager who was really helpful and who... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights while in Phuket. We enjoyed our stay and the hostel has a good location in Phuket Town rather than in the more touristy Patong. However, while the staff are friendly, even though 3 or 4 people might be at the reception desk only one will serve anyone at a time even... More

Cost 300 a night for a dorm room, without proper walls (pretty noisy). Floor makes it sound like there is an elephant trek going on in the hallway. No towels provided, unlike nearly every other hostel/guesthouse. Double room is at minimum 700, vastly overpriced compared to other places, ironically not really good for budget backpackers. Not allowed to take own... More

Clean dorm room with good air con. Good location that transport and local people know if your lost. Great info from the staff who speak good English and have sound advice on what price to expect including some deals for trips which are cheaper. Atmosphere was second to none with so many different nationalities mixing every night to chat. Cheap... More
