This hostel is literally a 2min walk from Bangla Road and the beach! great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, always cleaning the place so you dont need to worry about that. There is a great communal room for everyone to hang out, great place to talk to other travellers and meet new people!

During my 2 month, 7 country tour of SE Asia I enjoyed my stay at the Patong Backpacker Hostel more than any other hostel or hotel I had the opportunity to stay in. There is nothing fancy about the place, but you can expect a clean and welcoming environment that is perfect for meeting other travelers from all over the... More

Since I was backpacking, in my opinion this hostel had located at strategic location. It just a minute away from Bangla Road and located in front of Patong Beach. Although, I shared the dormitory however it was a wonderful experience. Pia, the receptionist, was very helpful and Mama too... This hostel provides basic necessities for backpackers. You should be adjustable... More

Communal area to meet other guests, watch films, use the Internet and much more. Free wifi. Tours expensive here so book outside of the resort and haggle. Clean, comfy bed. I stayed in a room with two bunk beds and had our own shower and toilet. A little bit on the pricey side but an enjoyable stay. I didn't think... More

Most awful place, pictures not represented of real place. Was meant to stay 5 nights and stayed one. Beds full of bed bugs and the bathroom facilities are awful. You shower on top of the toilet. Got two hours sleep because of two girls argueing. The curtains are so shabby that you wake up as soon as the sun comes... More

I stayed here for three nights in September 2013- the location is excellent, its close to the bar strip, the beach and plenty of shops and restaurants around. Quite hard to spot so easiest to get a taxi to it(its literally a door on the street, down a corridor and upstairs-does not look like somewhere pleasant on first appearance)..its a... More
