First the owner itself, Pia, received me and explaine how to arrange tours and places to eat, etc...she was very friendly and willing to help all of its guests to make them feel comfortable. Eventhough the hostel is a bit small it has a good atmosphere and the besd are very comfortable too.

Big rooms and nice bunkbeds. Mama in the receptions gives you daily hugs and making you feel like home. Wonderful experience to stay there in a social backpacker enviroment and among Mamas wonderful and positive energy. Few meters from Bangla Road! 😄

Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable and the location was excellent. ...But if you want to stay some silent and very relaxing place this option may not be the best for you. Nice place to stay! There is nothing I could complain.

I can't complain about my stay. The owner is fantastic! Such a friendly and helpful character with a great sense of humour! There was a really good atmosphere in the common area every night probably due to the beers being so much cheaper than anywhere else. Rooms are spacious and locker provided downstairs in reception. Showers and toilets were good... More

The hostel is in a good location. A few minutes walk to the beach and the Main Street. It's a good opportunity to meet other solo travellers. Patong is a great town for partying, chilling on the beach and diving. The hostel has hot water in the showers, a microwave, toaster, wifi and a TV. Most of the staff are... More

This spot was tricky to find (through a nail salon ally) but once we were in we were hooked. There was a really lovely common space for travelers to rest, meet, travel plan, and pre-game. It was right on the beach and seconds away from Bangla road. I didn't care much for Bangla but had an incredible stay here and... More

When we first arrived everything seemed well, the rooms were very clean and the staff were friendly. However as the hostel was located on the main road there was absolutely no peace and quiet. Not saying we didn't want to party, we went out every night however when we arrived home and all we wanted was to sleep there was... More

When we arrived at patong back packers I wondered what we'd got ourselves into as to get to the entrance you have to walk down a type of creepy little alley way... However once we figured out where we were we were greeted with a warm welcome by really lovely staff on the reception desk who also let us check... More
