I stayed for three nights, in a mixed 6 bed dorm, with a bathroom. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with working air con and good WIFI. Couldn't always connect in the room but there's a really great common area that has a strong connection..enough to FaceTime. I was travelling alone and found this hostel to be a really great... More

Stayed here for one night in a twin room with a friend. It's fairly basic, the building is old and it's hidden away through a corridor and up some stairs, but the location made the stay really worthwhile. It's right by the beach, in the busiest part of Patong, and Bangla road was just around the corner. The rooms and... More

I just checked in today 2/4/14. Everything looks great at the first time. Mama (reception auntie) make us feel welcome. But when night time, it was a nightmare when my friend bitten by the bed bugs. At 230am, i informed Mama, about this. She immediately want to change the bed for my friend. But i said later because my friend... More

So I stayed here for two nights and wow, honestly the best place I have stayed in Thailand, friendly, homely and clean! Right next to the beach and main nightlife strip I don't think it is loud here as the commune areas are vacated by one am. You will need your own padlock though if you want to leave valuables...

This is a great hostel in an unbeatable location. The woman working the night shift who calls herself mamma is one special lady. When I was there, an Aussie bloke lost his wallet and she spent hours helping him work on transferring money online and stuff. Very cool to see, especially since I personally haven't come across very helpful and... More

The rooms are all clean and pretty quiet considering the central location to all the bars (good location), there is a good lounge area with TV and dvd player. However I didn't have the best of experiences here. I couldn't connect to the wifi at all, and the owner was not the most helpful or negotiable person when I wanted... More

We spent 3 nights at Kool Backpackers, and later 3 nights at Patong Backpackers. So we can compare the places. Patong Backpackers is located at the beachside end of Bangla road. So VERY GOOD location, because it's close to bangla road and really close to the beach. The place is, compared to Kool Backpackers, much more quiet at nights and... More

We stayed 2 nights here, it's right on Patong Beach and near the main drag where all the parties are. The rooms are clean, as well as clean bathrooms and common area. The dorms only have 4 people so not bad at all for a hostel. Hot showers, plus cheap beer down in the common area where we met some... More

I had a great time! I found the staff friendly and hospitable, with them remembering me when i came back a few days later. Also got a big hug from Mama when I left. The room was more than adequate with comfortable beds, aircon and the one I stayed in had a bathroom which was alright. Great location if you... More
