This hostel is located directly on top of a nightclub so if you want a good nights sleep do not stay here. Location is near to hundreds of bars, clubs, restaurants and markets stools so you will never be in need of going far for anything. Bangla road and the Patong area as a horrid constant sewage smell and health... More

I spent 3 nights in this hotel with some friends and our experience was really bad. No windows, no ventilation, 6 people in a really small room... and next to a giant disco!! We were able to recognize every song they played....!! But we wanted something cheap, in the center so we couldn´t expect something much better for that price.... More

The facilities are good: washrooms, beds, living room, pool table, etc. It is also clean and well maintained. The location is just in the middle of all the party action, and it is literally next to the speakers of a night club, which made my night miserable cause I could only get to sleep after the club closed at 3:3am....

Giant place in the heart of the dirty, well actually it's built in a kind of shopping mall, very strange for a hostel. The place is all cement to it echos like being in a tin can and sort of feels like a hospital or prison or something. Walls do vibrate like other reviews say, a club is right next... More

Unless you want your bed vibrating from the club music all night and flashing lights in the window with no blinds I wouldn't recommend. Beds super uncomfortable, and you can't hear yourself think from how loud the music is in your room from neighbouring clubs

This hostel is perfect for the party-goer tourist that came to Thailand to have a good time. It was so clean and cool with amazing AC, with great vibes from all the people staying there that you run into. However, one of the workers there, named Ritz, was very rude towards one of my friends I was travelling with, calling... More

If you come to Patong to party and meet other party junkies, this is a place for you. Can't imagine a better location. We stayed here only because we arrived to Patong very late at night, asked the driver to drop us off at backpackers' hostel and this was the place we found first. The double room (only twin beds...

This hostel was EXACTLY what you'd picture a "party hostel" to be. Truly in the thick of the party on Bangala road, there is only time to sleep during daylight hours on the beach. In the evenings you are kept awake by the BOOMING bass from the very fun nightclub downstairs. I felt was able to both be chill, and... More
