When I first arrived to Patong I was not a huge fan, but thank goodness I found Kool backpacker hostel. The staff is FANTASTIC! They remember your name, they help you, chat with you whenever they see you, and they make you feel at home. The place is pretty new, but things run very smoothly. The rooms are clean, and I like how theres separate bathroom/shower rooms for men and women. The lobby has comfortable couches and a TV, and many guests hang out there. Wireless works in the lobby areas and in the rooms too.
One of the reasons why I was not a huge fan of Patong when I first arrived was the extent of partying in Bangla Rd. It is like the Vegas of Phuket. However, it was very easy for me to meet people in this hostel, so we went out to the bars together and had a fantastic time. The location of the hostel is great too! So if you're too tired or whatever, you can easily go back to sleep.
I spent new years in this hostel, and they offered free food and played music. I'm telling you, the staff is amazing. Wish I could go back just to hang out with them :)
