“excellent place to stay!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

the staff is exceptional at this place. they offer taxi services to/from airport, ferry, and even for sightseeing (like big buddha and elephant trekking). they don't overcharge for drinks or food like most places in phuket. they are friendly, helpful, and all around good people.
the rooms are clean, safe, and comfortable. they offer free towels and snorkeling equipment (again, they don't seem out to exploit tourists like most places in the area) for their guest. their restaurant has great food, service, and prices.
it's a 5 minute walk from the best beach in phuket, karon beach. it's WAY better and less crowded than the streets near kata beach. there are tons of scandinavian restaurants, hostels, and shops (for some reason) so basically everyone speaks english. i'll definitely stay there again! :)

Room Tip: ask the staff for suggestions if you're there for beaching and sightseeing.

Pineapple Guesthouse was the first of many stops in our Thailand trip, and I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant introduction to Thailand. Steve & Lek were faultless hosts who made every effort to make our stay comfortable including: late night airport pick-ups, help arranging tours at discounted rates, finding space for us when we decided we wanted to stay longer, booking our onward travel, and recommending good local bars and restaurants.

The private rooms are comfortable if unspectacular, the on-site restaurant delivers pretty good food, and the location within a five minute walk of Karon Beach is a winner as well. Pineapple Guesthouse was a real treat.

Steve and Saai run a wonderful establishment. We were picked up from the airport and driven straight to the guesthouse without any fuss. It was a long drive and cost only 650 baht which is very reasonable for a taxi drive of this distance in Phuket.

The room was simple but had all the necessities. It was nicely cleaned every day with fresh towels and water provided. The mattress was a bit hard, but otherwise perfect!

The breakfasts available were filling and very reasonably priced. Most came with juice and either tea or coffee.

Its location is excellent with a short walk down to Karon beach with many interesting things along the way.

Steve and Saai were incredibly helpful and having a free pc to research on was a wonderful boon to have. The day passes to a nearby resort were a wonderful surprise and we thoroughly enjoyed our day at the poolside.

Overall it was a very pleasant stay. Thanks and keep up the great work!

If I based my review merely on my room, I would have given this hostel a higher rating. My room was clean and simple. The AC was out upon arrival, but within a few hours, the management had it repaired. The staff and owner were helpful and very friendly. They can supply you with beach towels, recommendations, bottled water, a computer with internet, and passes to a nearby resort pool. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the beach, too. My room was on the back of the house, so the street noise was at a minimum. However, construction was going on during the day outside my window, which didn't bother me at all. My friends' room was also clean and decorated very thoughtfully. The downside is that they had more street noise and their bathroom smelled of sewage, causing their entire room to stink terribly. Management attempted to remedy the problem, but eventually the owner said that this is just the way places smell in Asia. The hostel has a variety of rooms/dorms to choose from, a restaurant, and a well-priced laundry service.

Liam Doyle: I had a king room en-suite, TV, Air Com. less than a 1000 baht. The location is perfect in the centre yet seculeded. When I travel food is important your breakfast is your day. Well Pineapple Breakfast is the best Breakfast in Phuket. For 180baht the smiling JAEB will serve you Full English orange juice 2 eggs bacon sausage baked beans toast for 180baht.
And oh yes the best mug of hot English Tea, yes I said mug, no little cups here. Lunch 15 choices. Steve a laid back Londoner, and his partner Lek just bring you into there zone its relaxing. With the added benifet of perfect English if you need it. Backed up by Saai who is always smiling and ready to help. You just chill, in this secure zone. Its my second time,
In Pineapple. If I ever return to Thai, I know where I am going, even off season, sure why not.

Room Tip: The King Room I was in 115.

The English owner of the guesthouse is very friendly and helped me to find a cheap (and reliable) GP! Nice vibe at the hostel and reasonably priced food - I believe they have 'British' tea and brown sauce if you're missing home comforts.

We negotiated on price, in comparison to website prices, and got a very good deal. I believe the guesthouse also offers an airport pick up service...
