We were sharing a dormitory, door was open all the time. Be careful. On the saturday we understood they surbooked the reservation and put us in another creepy hotel 30... More

Really nice place to stay for some days. Next to the beach and next to the Bangla Road,the two main attractions in Patong. Mum, which has the late shift starting at 6PM, can help you with EVERYTHING! For example You can book cheap trips and tickets with big discount directly from them.

Patong Backpackers is the best place to stay in patong if you want a homely and socialable environment. It is really close to the beach and the main strip, you couldnt ask for a better location. Mamma and Pea are the best staff ever, they have a great sense of humour and really look after you when you are here.... More

I stayed here for 4 nights whilst travelling around Thailand. I stayed on the top floor in a 12 bed dorm which was great because the lighting was great and had a view of the beach. The rooms were clean. Only annoying thing was the showers and in a tiny toilet cubicle with the toilet but it was all good,... More

I stayed here for 5 nights earlier this year. I am a 23 yo solo female traveller and saw this hostel in Lonely planet so thought I would give it a go. It is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. As I walked up the steps to the hostel I was met by a group of friendly... More

Before this amazing place I was staying in a hotel that cost ten times as much, waking up daily to a sore back. I stumbled upon this place and Ive enjoyed every moment. The people are fantastic, the rooms are excellent and the views are breathtaking. I encourage young travellers on a budget to check it out. Peace

Good location and very convenient. The hostel is located above a massage parlour. (They do good & cheap massage) the rooms are simple and clean. I stayed in a 6-bed dorm and its pretty comfortable for a good budget price. Cheap 40baht beers was a bonus. The common room is comfy with many pillows for u to laze around on.... More
