“You mean "Cockroach Village"?!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Oh my God! The worst place ever! What is wrong with the people who write good reviews about this place - have they traveled enywhere else in the world?! Stuff unfreandly and rude. In the room so many cockroaches I couldn sleep (one was on my bed during the night)! I would ask Lonely Planet not to write lies in their books and please erase this place out of the list... Thank you!

Room Tip: I cant give you any tip because I escaped from this place and also Phuket.

This little hotel was so nice! It's located a bit farther from the beach, but good because it was away from all the craziness that takes place at night. It was still only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The rooms are set back from the main road along a garden walkway. They were nice and clean and had a hot shower, AC and TV- with HBO! The staff was nice and helpful too. Overall, it was a great and peaceful hotel (with HBO!) and at a cheap price. We really enjoyed it and would go back any time!

Easily the worst place I stayed in Thailand.
Found in a Lonely Planet book, so figured it had to be fine.
The woman (I think owner) was the rudest, meanest person I encountered in the country. Surly as I paid her cash, argumentative when I questioned the contants of my minibar vs. the inventory sheet.
As for the room, it was functional, but about the quality and comfort of a US Days Inn, right before it is rebranded into an even lower level chain. Dingy, cheap old blankets, peeling paint, etc.
Location and quiet were good, but with the 1000 places to stay in Patong, I'm positive you can do better.

Rooms were dirty and full of ants. Sheets were not changed even if asked. Staff very unfriendly. Even with a cheap price I cannot recommend to stay in there.

Arrived in Patong in November 2009 after travelling from Ko Samui. Turned up at Capricorn on spec, and managed to book three weeks there. The service was lovely, the staff were really helpful and always smiling. Our rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard, the cleaners were also lovely. We ended up staying another few weeks as we were so happy there. We weren't really there for the nightlife, which is what Patong is really for, but we still had a good time. We were also told we could use the swimming pool at K hotel next door. Next door to Capricorn is Capricorn Internet cafe and travel agent, they booked our Visa Run to Burma there which went smoothly. I would definately recommend Capricorn Village to anybody.

The staff at the Capricorn was magnificent. We moved out of our previous accommodation in Phuket-M's Guesthouse-due to a very bad experience, only to be welcomed with true Thai hospitality here. The rooms are standard for hostel, but do contain a stocked bar fridge. the coffee shop outside-part of the capricorn hotel-makes the BEST coffee, and next door is the internet cafe (also part of capricorn hotel). It's very close to the Jung Ceylong Mall and Bangla road..the hub of activity, and although i thought it might be very noisy in the evening, it wasn't a problem and easy to get a good nights sleep. Special thanks to Ms Na and her team who really made our stay a pleasure-she and her team where on standby to arrange taxi's, post letters, give directions and advise and help us with early check-in when i pitched at their place at 7am looking for a new hotel. The have 24hr security as well. All the tourist companies we used found the location easily.
