Mama is a great woman (don't get on the wrong side of her though...), the hostel itself is alright. It has a nice communal area with these awesome lounge mats and a big tv with movies to watch. The location is great even though Patong itself isn't the nicest place unless you are one to just go out and get... More

Being a minute's walk away from the beach and Bangla Road means this place is perfectly located. The rooms are that of a typical hostel. If you're a backpacker then stay here, its value is great. Mama is the best hostel owner I met during my travels!

Stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Mama was so funny and was always looking to get you involved and keep you happy. She offers great service and even lets you bring your own drink into the hostel! Great place to also meet likewise travellers!

At such a low cost, this quiet hostel was great and just far enough away from Bangla street to be easy to sleep. A couple minutes walk and we would be in the heart of the busy street with plenty of shopping and food and bars. Some of the staff at the desk didn't speak great English, but Mama was... More

Excellent hostel! I felt very welcome, the staff and other guests were really friendly. Mama, you are hilarious! "1 million baht!!" The common area was very relaxing and perfect for meeting new people. 5 minute walk to Patong beach and Bangla road. I would stay again!

Absolutely amazing atmosphere, incredibly clean And "Mama" was out of this world! I don't think I've ever been this far away from home and felt this comfortable! I absolutely can't wait until I travel back to Thailand just so that I can make a stop back in Patong and see Mama again! Definitely the place to stay to meet other... More

Had a great time here! The beach is a minute away and everything is right there. Mama is amazing and will crack you up. She's also the biggest sweetheart, she brought me to the market and we made papaya salad for everyone.

Arrived late at night and discovered bed bugs in our first room. We were convinced to go to another room that had not be used in a long time. This room was also riddled with bed bugs. 3/6 of us slept in the lobby. Momma is a lovely women and excellent host, but she is completely unaware of how bad... More

This hostel was located very close to Patong beach as it stated which was nice. It was also right around the corner from Bangla road so it was perfect going out at night and having an easy walk home. The hostel itself was just ok. They do a very good job at keeping it clean, there is A/C in the... More
