The combination of this hostel and kata beach make phuket an amazing place instead of a yucky tourist trap. I have never stayed a hostel with such a warm friendly vibe. The amenities and many cool communal areas make this a fun place to make friends and chill out. The owner and staff stay in the hostel, making sure that everything runs smoothly and travelers enjoy their stay. Love the place - do not miss it!

I stayed here in the private room on the rooftop with a pool for 2 nights, for the price of a dorm in some dingy places!

The hostel is very modern (6 months old as of April 14) with a very chilled and friendly vibe.

It is located very close to the beautiful Kata yai beach on a new complex next to a nightclub, coffee shop and various eateries.

It was perfect, and Norman/Rich the owner/manager are awesome and integrate well with guests.

We had drinks on the rooftop and in the lounge over a movie before heading out for drinks together. A real family feel and I look forward to visiting the Cambodia hostel when it is finished!

There is a kitchen to make meals, very modern showers and secure comfortable rooms.

Always spotless too!! - spot on!!

Room Tip: Rooftop double room, it's like having a private pool!

Great hostel. Ticked all the boxes for me. Small dorm (4), female only, clean, good wifi, close to the beach. Clean bathrooms with lovely shower / toilet cubicles. If there was a negative, my room was next to the communal area and it was a little noisy sometimes, especially if people were watching a film on their big screen (another cool perk if you like that sort of thing). Also, not much space for luggage - lockers provided and space under beds but both too small for my 60l back-pack. But overall a really good hostel.

I stayed in a female dorm for 3weeks at Fin, I travled many countries for five years and stayed many hostels and Fin hostel was the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It's a new opened hostel. friendly staffs, the location is perfect close to the beach and there's a local market opening just two minute from the hostel, good restaurants around, it has beautiful inside and outside common areas and some hanger for dry washing. big screen for watch movies with like 100 DVDs. Plenty of clean showers with good sized bath shelves. kitchen with a fridge to store things. Comfortable bed including personal lamp, power point and small shelve on the wall. They offer clean towels as well. It's a really cool place to stay and they are having BBQ parties every week, you can also hire scooters and bicycles. The hostel designed by guests' convenience, 5-star hostel in Kata.
