Very nice place. We stayed in double room bathroom is nice, ac and wifi worked perfect, staff and food are very nice. Good place for people all ages not too loud. Atm, shops, taxis, pharmacy, restaurants around, 10-15 min walk from the beach. 10 min drive to Bangla road.

This was my first visit to Phuket, which was a solo visit. I have booked this Balcony Hostel through http://www.hostelworld.com/ although there was a deposit about US$17. In fact this US$17 is not for Balcony Hostel Management. Facility wise this hostel was super cool for me! They have room for 4 person/room (which i choose during my visit) and i... More

Spent 3 nights here on the 5 floor which I'm sure May bother some people since it is all stairs but for myself it was not a big deal. Clean, standard dorm rooms with attached bathrooms. Close to the street market which is a great budget place to eat dinner, and go a little further and you are on the... More

This hostel is brilliant, stayed here for 2 nights and was the best stay in Thailand so far. The staff are so friendly and make you feel so welcome all the time, easy to meet people. Great location just 5 mins from the beach and 10 from the nightlife so still allowing you to sleep at night. Would go again... More

Good location next to night market and bars in Patong. Elevator did not work so we had to bring all of our stuff up 5 stories. Our room had 3 bunk beds for 6 people and a private bathroom that was really convenient to share with only 5 others. In addition, we booked 2 nights but checked out after only... More

Extremely friendly and helpful guys. Awesome place to stay. Good and neat rooms. Very accommodating. Food menu and availability can be better though. Good as a hostel, to keep stuff and crash. But I will go back there if I go to Phuket just for the hospitality.

Don't really know why everybody raves on about this hostel. Its very average and there is nothing special about it. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was a decent size but the cleaning wasn't that great as it was quite dusty. Location is not too great, if you are looking for nightlife and main restaurants then this hostel is... More

i really liked this hostel... the staff and the owner very friendly and helpful. Rooms cleaned everyday, nice beds and big lockers. better than the hostels that i stayed in Australia. I just did not like when I extended one more night they charged me 100 bah more than when I booked. Anyway, nice place!
