I stayed in one of the airco rooms. You have a lot of room. Free wifi in the room and breakfast is included. The hotel is in one of the old buildings. Wat gives it's charm. And it is very close to the market. Staff is very friendly. So good prize for a good hostel.

Whenever I visit Phuket, I always come to this hostel. I also recommend most of my friends to stay here when they come to Phuket for their holidays, they are also satisfied. I have met some of the Scandinavian and Chinese backpackers here too, they reviewed me about this hostel about good services. The rooms are very clean and comfortable.... More

I only spent one night in this hostel, regretting not to have chosen to stay here before. I had a double room with bathroom, which was quiet and clean with some little decorations. The bathroom would need some refurbishing, but the shiny wooden floor everywhere else gave this place that certain colonial character typical of Phuket town. Breakfast with coffee,... More

I had the chance to try the new dormitory room, comfortable (+ a towel - not everywhere) plus excellent price! Included the nice breakfast (again not everywhere) and free Internet!!! It is a family business, and I was surprised because the owner took lot of his time to explain me how to manage in Phuket city and where to go... More

The staff doesn't speak English at all (they are Burmese), just a bit of Thai. The owner is rarely on the spot. I asked (in Thai) the price for washing and ironing. Both the receptionist and the owner told me 80 bath/kilo. I double asked if that price (very high!) included ironing, in order to be sure. They said "yes,... More

I reserved a room with a/c and arrived in the evening around 8:30. The room was very clean and large but HOT. it took forever for the a/c to cool it down but my greatest disappointment was the restroom. The walls to the restroom did not meet the ceiling, thus any "noises" emitted while having " personal" time in the... More

I could have written such nice things about this place. No complaints at all about the rooms which were comfortable, air conditioned and quite good value. The family running it were (or seemed) so friendly and nice and it'd be a solid 5-star review if it wasn't for the poor wi-fi. But what they don't seem to realise is by... More

We wandered into this hostel after walking around Phuket on a very very hot day with our back packs on. Price for a triple room was 250 baht per person (£5 each) and the room was fantastic! Air conditioned, private bathroom, western toilet, complimentary shower gel and soap, plus bottled water in room. Very clean, and the staff were amazing!... More
