“Pineapple Guesthouse is the way to go”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Had a tremendous stay in Phuket, and I believe that a great part of that has to do with the fact that I stayed at Pineapple Guesthouse. The staff are fantastic and want you to enjoy your stay (both at the Guesthouse and in Phuket) as much as you do. The rooms are clean and well-kept. It's a nice, easy walk to beautiful Karon Beach, and not too far a walk from Kata Beach. It beats Patong. And don't worry about getting around if you're going on some trips. Most trips on the island or to other islands in the area have vans that pick you up from your hotel and drop you back off there when the trip is down. Otherwise, it's a 300 Baht tuk-tuk ride to Patong. But Karon takes the cake if you're looking to relax. Pineapple Guesthouse helps it do just that. And it's a great deal!

First time I came here was back in early 2009. And I came again just recently (Oct 2012). Still the same except getting bigger as in they have another rooms and own restaurant! They still maintaining the same rates since 3 years ago but never neglect the quality of the rooms & service. They clean up the room and made the bed everyday. The toilet/bathroom was really clean and water pressure just perfect after a long day at the beach!

It is such a nice place to meet up another budget backpackers. Situated only 5-minutes walk to the most beautiful beach area in Phuket - Karon Beach. You should stay here if you come to Phuket. Not Patong, not Kata, not Rawai, not any other place. Pineapple (Saai & Steve), I will definitely come back here again in few years time.

Was there for 30 days and was the best place i have stayed in. The owners are really nice people and are very friendly,helpful. The room is very clean and has a small fridge in the room which is good and also has a safe in the room to put anyway items.The only things which is not good is you hear the music coming from the bar not loud and can close the window. Apart from this the Pineapple is a good place to say. The cafe which is part of the QuestHouse makes nice food and good services.Been here two times has been good

My conclusion to the Pineapple Quest House is a nice friendly and helpful place to stay in. The rooms are very clean with a safe to lock away items and a small fridge to keep drink cool.The Pineapple is only a ten walk to the beach. I have stayed there two times and would advise anyone who go to phuket for a holiday to stay in this place.

We stayed here for 2 nights initially and ended up extending our stay by another two nights because we liked it so much. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, which went a long way towards making us feel comfortable and welcome. Karon Beach and Kata Beach are both close by, but if you want to go anywhere else you should rent a car or motorbike. We didn't rent anything, so getting around was expensive by tuk-tuk.

We stayed in a king-sized bed room with AC since it was the low season and we had a great time overall.

Spent a week there recently and couldn't have found a better place for the money! Our private room was quite comfortable and included a tv a refrigerator in our room. Although the absolute best part about the hostel was the manager. She was so helpful giving us directions, recommending restaurants and even booking outings and taxis for us. We'd go back just for her!

You get what you pay for. Pretty much everything in the dorm makes a noise. Beds, doors, lockers. Bit of a nuisance in a place where people sleep. Matress was in poor condition (had a dent in it) and smelled a bit strange, as did the pillow. Manager Saai was wonderful and helped out with anything I needed though. It's more that I went here because there we no really other places to go.

We can't do anything about the noise other guests may make in the dorm but this is the first review that has mentioned this.

All mattresses have been thoroughly cleaned and aired and pillows changed quite recently so hopefully no more smelly ones. Sorry about that.

This is a cheap guesthouse that offers all the basic essentials: simple, spacious rooms that are cleaned regularly, with fully working a/c, hot water and wifi connections, plus a pair of absolute gems in the form of the manager Saai and her husband, who were two of the friendliest and most helpful people I've ever met. They had absolutely no trouble helping us find places to eat, hooking us up with massage parlors or tours and were even perfectly happy shuttling us around to the zoo and local temples. They absolutely brought our stay in Phuket up another level and we're very, very thankful fo them
