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.

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

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
