“2W is tops!!!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I only stayed one night but this hostel is excellent, spotless, small and with friendly staff in a decent location in Phuket Town. The cafe downstairs serves a tasty breakfast and coffee. I stayed in the dorm. Very clean and comfortable beds. The shared bathroom and shower were fine.

Happened to find this little gem off the main strip just near the market of Phuket Town. Great location, great prices, helpful staff and very clean. Highly reccomended to anyone!
Although the hostel bunks are small rooms, they are great value for the money! They even had wet shavers in the ladies showers!?! Loved it - thanks again guys.

"Wow", was what I thought when I walked in the door of this place.

The decor is very modern and the whole place is superbly clean. Our double room was small, but it was pleasant and had a nice little balcony overlooking the road.

Unfortunately there is nothing in Phuket Town - you are miles from the beaches and anything worth doing. However, buses will take you to all of the main beaches and cost just 30baht each way. We went to Karon beach twice - walking to the bus stop took around 20 minutes and the actual journey itself around 45. On the way back, the last bus returns at 5pm - or it is a very expensive tuk tuk (probably around 500baht).

If this travelling sounds too much, don't stay here or anywhere else in Phuket Town. However, 2W suited our purposes perfectly because unlike in the rest of Phuket there are plenty of places to eat cheaply so we were able to keep our costs low. Unlike Patong which is overrun by bars, restaurants and shops to cater for the tourists, this is as close as you will get to the "real" Phuket.

The location aside, we encountered two minor problems with this hostel - but they are minor. The air con in our double room was very powerful and we ended up freezing cold at night. Also, we ordered toast at breakfast one morning and it took half an hour for them to produce it which was more than a bit ridiculous. This was because a group of four had just arrived and they prioritised their cooked meals over our toast.

Still, these minor issues aside, this is a great hostel if you don't mind the location.

This is the cutest hostel that i ever been to. The room decoration made me feel fresh and relax although the room itself is a bit too small. The location is the best. This place is not too far from the old Phuket bus terminal which you can take the airport bus from there or if you wanna take a bus to other provinces, there is a shuttle service to the new bus terminal as well. The service from staffs at 2W are excellent. They are friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back again.

OMG. I simply can't get over this place. It's wonderfully clean all the time (even beds are made every day), with a very hospitable atmosphere. Staff are really helpful and efficient, and make you feel part of a family by calling you by first name, you're not just a number here. The hostel is pretty well located, shops all around and the beach bus station not far. Dorm rooms are quite small, though.
I highly reccommend this place!

Where should I begin,
This hostel is outstanding! The atmosphere is very quiet and relaxed. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and patient. The rooms are very clean and so are the showers/toilets. Each room is cleaned/serviced every day along with the restrooms (which I believe are cleaned 3 or 4 times daily) . I had an amazing time. I was able to rest plenty and the beaches are all 15-20 minute tun tun ride so I was able to have nights out as well. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone wanting to relax and have a good time as well. Its only 20 minutes from the airport and near shopping malls, street food, and street vendors.

We had an ensuite double room here and although it is very small we it was fine for sleeping in. We had a small balcony which was a great bonus. It is all very clean, although the drains do often smell. The one guy who speaks good english is extremely helpful and was a great assest to helping us explore Phuket and even ongoing when we travelled to Bangkok. I loved staying in Phuket town it is a little way from the action in Patong but is a lovely sanctuary compared to the 'Sin City'.The cafe downstairs does nice coffee, although i wish breakfast was included in the price :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony :)
