“It really is a chic place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

The owners are very friendly and helpful and go out of their way to help you. The rooms were clean and spacious with a good on suite bathroom. The pillows were a tad hard and the blanket slightly too small for someone over 6ft...
It's in a good location in Phuket town, not too far from the old town.
It had a movie room which was a welcome relief from the hot humid weather outside and a nice place to relax.

I stayed here for three nights as a solo traveller in July 2013. I wish I could have stayed for longer!! The couple that run the hostel are really helpful and friendly - they even let me print off my travel confirmation free of charge! - and the location was perfect for me - ten minutes (if that!) - walk in to town. Rooms and shower room were really clean, and the beds had secure storage space underneath which was perfect. Breakfast was also included - toast and tea/coffee - and there's a fridge/kettle etc in the kitchen area that's available to use. Also a film room but I didn't end up using it! I would recommend this hostel to everyone and it will be the top of my list when I return to Phuket! Hotel quality hostel for hostel price!!

I used this hostel as my base for 2 weeks. This is a beautiful hostel and two lovely friendly helpful people running it. It is maybe a 15 min walk to all the buses that take you to the local beaches..Patong, Kata, Karon, Surin, Kamala etc.. And the bus rides are cheap, from 30Baht upto 60Baht each way. It is in a good safe location, as it is in a private complex with security. I think using Phuket town as a base is great because you can be on a different beach everyday. I did daytours to the islands..whch worked out better in my opinion.
Its the best hostel I have ever stayed at and I have travelled USA, Australia, Asia, China and Japan. Spotless clean, free wifi, tea and toast for breakfast, a tv room with huge tv and a dvd collection, and a little kitchen with kettle, microwave, toaster and fridge..which is very helpful. And they organised all my tours and were just so helpful. When i did an over night trip, they minded my big rugsack for 50baht per night, whch was great because then i just had to bring an overnight bag. After my trips; it always felt like i was coming home. Definately recommend and if I ever return..Ananas will be top of my list. It is the blueprint for how hostels should be worldwide.

I stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it. This hostel is beyond good value for money. It was really well looked after, lovely clean dorm rooms and bathrooms. There is a kitchen if you want to cook and a tv room with cable tv and pleanty of movies to choose from. The staff here were extremely friendly and helpful, it is clear they put a lot of care into running the hostel.

Owner was extremely helpful with good english. For 1500thhb (i think!) he took me all the way round the southern of the island by himself, into the Wat Chalong, Big Buddha to see all the beaches and to Laem Prompthep for sunset. AMAZING! The hostel was immaculate! I was the only one in the girls dorm, but spacious room, very good shower. Cinema room exceptional for a hostel. All ferrys and onward journeys available from here. Also, the hostel itself is in a very safe part of Phuket Town which allows for a peaceful sleep. Owner really was exceptional though.

We stayed in the dorm room upstairs for 1 night in May 2013.

The Good:
Clean & Affordable.
Massive lockers under the bunks to store everything.
Basic toast breakfast with tea and coffee.
Hot / Cold clean community shower.
Comfy beds.
A/C turns on during the evening and night.
Computers downstairs.
The friendly old guy behind the counter stayed up late for us after a flight delay.

The Bad:
Location isn't the best. Tough to find – in an apartment complex or something.
Lacking of character and a bit sterile – but if you're only staying a day or two who cares.

The Ugly:
Nothing to report.

Dear our valued guest/s,

Thanks for your valuable time and review for our hostel. If you stay a bit longer, you will find out we are located on the land mark location and not far from bus terminal 1, (500 meters away from our hostel) also close to shopping area (Robinson shopping center) and Phuket old town area.

If you arriving in the day time, you will see that we are easy to find and we are surrounding by car showrooms such as HONDA, MAZDA, SUZUKI and Shell gas station. Also just only 3 K.M. away from the Rasada pier where you can take the ferry to Phi Phi Island, Lanta Island, Rai Lay, Ao Nang etc.

Once again, thank you for your valuable review.

This hostel is fantastic. The room was immaculate and got cleaned daily. The staff are so sweet and helpful and that can't be stressed enough. We ended up arriving at 6am instead of the planned 1am and the man (sorry we don't know your name!) was so kind and friendly, despite being woken up at so unexpectedly to do a check in! He spoke great English and suggested places to eat and gave us a map and clear instructions. So yes absolutely lovely staff - the negative review on here is unfair as they are so welcoming and helpful! A real home from home. It was really close to the port which meant a longer lie in before the boat to Koh phi phi (which he booked for us too). There is a little breakfast area where you can help yourself to toast and tea etc - very nice touch.

We will definitely be staying here again if we return to phuket, and you should too! Oh and the shower was really good!
