We booked Kool Backers via Hostel world for a few nights whilst visiting Phuket. This was my first experience of a hostel and can safely say I would without a doubt return. Not only were the rates cheap but the people who run this are lovely and will accommodate you in any way they can. There was 5 of us on check in and we were unable to all be in one dorm however the second night they moved us all into the same dorm, Everyone is friendly, as there was 5 of us we didn't mix much however if you were travelling solo it seems the ideal place to make friends from all over the world. The rooms are spotless, freshly painted and all come with a quote on the wall on each room. There is an area in reception with a large table, a fridge to buy drinks, a plasma tv and chairs and leather sofas for those looking for a bit chill time. The only negative thing I found was in the second dorm in the front corridor it was noisy as this is located bang central in the middle of Bangla Road and directly opposite the immense Tiger bar so if your sleep is precious maybe note this at the time you book.
The showers / toilets and bathrooms were always clean and spotless. Showers are individual curtained cubicles and toilet paper is provided (not always there but not often it wasn't). There are also lockers provided but you do require your own padlock. Over all a fantastic hostel and would highly recommend as location is fantastic as is the service!
