Check in didn't go smoothly as the guy in the reception area didn't know his math, he have a calculator but just couldn't compute right. Also I specifically booked a female dorm but then I was led to a room with a man inside, I protested and they had to move another guest's stuffs to the 1st room I was shown. For 2 nights It was just me in the room with 2 bunk beds so it's a bonus.
Given the location, the place is conducive to resting. Dorm is clean but not spotless, they don't empty out the rubbish bin daily so I guess cleanliness is up to the person who uses the room. Bathrooms are inside the rooms, hot&cold shower works but there's just not a space to hang the towels on while showering.
They have plenty of tour brochures but their prices are quite high so I didn't book any with them. What I really appreciate is that they have plenty of maps and travel guide books in the lounge area.
They also have lockers, CCTV camera and the wifi signal is good as they have I think 3 routers. From what I read they also have a TV area, I'm not sure why it wasn't shown to me.
The staff don't talk much but are always ready and they seem delighted to assist. I had to extend my stay so I booked online but put in the wrong date, that they corrected for me.
Overall this is the place to stay if you plan to really go around Phuket as its near every bus terminal.
