Patong Backpacker Hostel
Ranked #16 of 232 Specialty Lodging in Patong
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Great location close to Bangla Road and the beach.
We were in a 6 bed dorm, so not too crowded, the bathrooms right across the corridor.
Obviously don't expect luxury, but it was clean, comfortable, and I had some decent sleeps in there.
There are lockers by reception for your valuables which were handy, and a large communal area, where you can get chatting to fellow travellers.
We met some great people in this hostel, who we are still in contact with now.
I would definitely return to Patong backpackers next time I am in Phuket.

This place is just over the road from the beach, 2 minute walk to Bangla road.
The hostel is clean the staff are very friendly and helpful.
A room was around 250-350 bht depending on how many in a dorm. All dorms have aircon. There are no hot showers but this is Thailand so not needed.
Free wifi and a cool communal area to chill out.
Over all this hostel was a bargain. No complaints from me

This backpackers is perfectly situated in the heart of it all in Patong beach, Phuket. It is close to the party, the beach and restaurants. If you are looking for it all, this is the place to be. However don't go thinking its a hotel and that you will get plenty of rest and peace. Its exactly the opposite. A bed to sleep in after an awesome day exploring this town. A place to meet new friends and chill.

They have a policy to not be in the reception/ chill area after 1am, but then agian, if you are up at that time, why not go check out the night life - of which there are plenty to choose from.

The bathrooms are close to the rooms, some cold showers and some hot - however the hot shower is not very hot, but in Thailand one doesn't need that. The beds were very comfortable and we had AC in the rooms. All and all a very clean place - with the cleaning ladies busy working around you, even if you trying to sleep in after an all night party session hehe

I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful in all aspects, they helped us to rent a scooter, booked our transport and gave us some good and helpful advice.

They charge for their wifi, but there are plenty of restaurants and coffee places around that offers free wifi for those who are county their baht.

I would definitely go back. A very cool place :-)

Room Tip: The night life can be heard outside, but when you close the doors we could here the music from the s...

A good hostel, however some rude members of staff and no free wifi, and get sent to bed after 1! We also arrive believing we were were saying in a six bed dorm however we were were split up as a bed had been broken in the previous night! This is understandable as the the bunks are of extremely low quality like the members of staff!

No showers! Well there is one in the whole hostel, but it is dirty. The other showers are broken and are replaced with a bucket of cold water and bowl to pour over yourself. We travelled all day and one of our friends got very sick on the way so all he wanted was a good nights rest to get better - not here. We were given the wrong room and were on the same level as reception, where the staff allowed the boys to buy them drinks and we had to listen to them making sexually explicit comments in regards to the boys genitalia. We asked them to quieten down at 2am but this resulted in them banging on our wall constantly to ensure that no sleep was had until 3:30am. Lots of people stayed one night and then left after they realised how awful this place is. Other places are just as cheap and you get your own working bathroom. The location is excellent and staff know their information about the area but you can get a better place for the same price.

I couldn't recommend this hostel more, I stayed here for a few nights and met so many amazing people. Its literally 30 seconds walk from the main road full of bars and a further 30 seconds to the beach.

Although the hostel is close to the main road with bars you can hardly hear the music from your room. They have a great social area where everyone hangs out at night before going out. The staff are amazingly friendly, they will bend over backwards for you and are really fun to be around.

The hostel provides a free locker at reception and has hot showers and a number of toilets on each floor, the only downside is they dont have free wifi which sucks but apart from that everything else was perfect.
