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.

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

Stayed 3 times... Staff are amazing. Mama will look after you even if you are partying too hard ! The cleanest hostel and the best beds I slept on in Thailand. And met so many friends for life here. And close to everything you could want.

I was supposed to stay two nights over the weekend from Singapore. We stayed the friday (no service, did not feel safe - people were getting in and out easily). 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

The dorms are clean and fresh. It has a good location, close to the beach, party street and the mall. You will... 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
