They also gave us tips and... More

Dorm room and the bathroom are clean with great wifi and air-con. There is only one thing I didn't like is there is no elevator, therefor used stairs... More

The staff are just so friendly and helpful. The food is cheap and delicious. The rooms are soooo comfortable and you can rent mopeds from here for cheap. The location is perfect as it's only a 5 minute tuktuk/moped drive to the main strip of clubs! I've travelled to alot of countrys but this hostel is my favourite. Just good... More

This review is based purely on the staff, since I technically did not stay there. My boyfriend and I were staying at a hotel just down the street, and decided to rent a motorbike from Balcony. The first time we stopped by, we only asked for a price, but the man (forgot his name, but he seems to be the... More

I don't have any bad things to say about this hostel. The room was perfect, the location was perfect and the staff was beyond perfect! We were a group of 5 girls and the staff did everything they could to help us and accommodate us! They answered all of the questions we had and offered us advice on which beaches... More

This hostel was great! The best one I stayed in on my trip hands down! You are close enough to the strip but far enough for some quiet at night to sleep. The staff really cares about it patrons. I hurt my ankle after on Phi Phi I left Patong and decided I would return to Patong to stay a... More
