We arrived with our booking already being completed (8 people) and the receptionist simply told us that the rooms weren't available. We asked to be compensated and he said he doesn't care if we leave.

Perfect location to stay on Patong beach at very cheap rates, however, dorms are not really that good in fact very poor with respect to maintenance and interior.

I chose to stay at the Backpacker Hostel in Patong Beach after reading the great reviews about being a party hostel and central to Bangla Road.

Lovely social place hidden away down this dingy hallway, wouldn't expect it to be there. Super Comfy beds. The rooms are cleaned everyday. Cheap beer and water sold on premise. Cool af aircon. An Aussie babe could settle down in the little paradise for the budget traveller

Phuket in general is a more expensive part of Thailand so relatively it was more expensive than other hostels I stayed at, but its right accross the beach end of Bangala road and in the middle of EVERYTHING. They give u a key for your room too so its safe.
