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

Stayed here for one night, we were going to stay longer but as soon as we arrived we decided we wanted to leave as soon as possible. When we were sat waiting for our room people in the social area all of the people there were discussing how many bed bug bites they had gotten there! And when we got... More

I have definitely found nicer hostels in my travels than this one. I booked without doing much research and only about a week out from my arrival. The location was the best part about this hostel. It is close to all of the action, restaurants, bars and beach. It is generally clean but quite dated. The showers do not have... More

The owner/receptionist old lady smiles when first meeting you but turns out to be wrotten/greedy on the inside. She was really kind and supporting generally but when I asked for a ride... More

First time backpacker and this place impressed me. Friendly staff that was able to book some tours for me and give me great advise of further travel plans. Cool atmosphere and a fun vibe. Great place for a solo traveler. Also 2 minute walk to the beach and crazy party street.
