This is actually the first review I have ever written but I decided it my responsibility to my fellow travelers to know what could happen in this place. The owner/receptionist old lady smiles when first meeting you but turns out to be wrotten/greedy on the inside. She was really kind and supporting generally but when I asked for a ride... More

First time backpacker and this place impressed me. Friendly staff that was able to book some tours for me and give me great advise of further travel plans. Cool atmosphere and a fun vibe. Great place for a solo traveler. Also 2 minute walk to the beach and crazy party street.

Mama and Pia made this place really feel like home.They're so helpful and you can tell she loves to do this. We were with some who were drunk a lot of the time and mama took care of everybody and made sure they wouldn't lose their valuables. The staff is cleaning all the time so its really clean in de...

I stayed in this hostel for 5 nights and it was awesome! First of all the location; right around the corner from the bars and beach (if you want to go for some peace and quiet, don't go to this city ;) ). Second, the rooms were clean and big enough and the beds were comfy. But the most important... More

my stay at patong backpackers hostel was by far and away one of the best times that i've had in my life. i have traveled extensively around the world but the hospitality in this hostel is second to none. Mama and Pia, who run the hostel, are second to none. I absolutely love the both of them and would recommend... More

The lady, Mama, is extremely rude. The rest of the staff is fine, but speaks very little English. They charge for every little thing, including a key deposit. All the rules are extremely annoying. The location of the hostel is very good if you like to party on Bangla road, and the lady in the morning is nice. I didn't... More

This has easily been the most welcoming hostel. It was so good that we came back for a second trip to Patong! The staff is amazing, and would do anything for you. We will miss Pia and Mama so much and if we ever come back to Thailand this is the only place that we would come back to. Such... More

Great location, run by a group of ladies that are constantly cleaning to sure there's no sand on the floor. We arrived when it was poring rain and mamma gave us an umbrella to borrow for the night. Traveled through Thailand and this is one of my favorite hostels. Good social area as well
