“Great place to stay close to everything!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

On our arrival we were pleased to see that the hotel was located right next to the night market which has lots of great cheap food!! The lady owner of the hotel was really nice and helpful and have us very good discounts on getting to Koh Samui and we also did a day trip to the James Bond island which including canoeing which was fantastic and I would highly recommend. The room itself was a really good size with a telly and fridge, luxuries we aren't used to!! The bed was really big and the bathroom was spotless with a good and hot shower!! As I said we were literally right by the night market, this didn't create any noise for us in our room, and over the road is a big shopping centre with lots of shops and restaurants. You can walk through the shopping centre to get to the lovely beach, so all in all about a ten minute walk. Great stay and would definitely recommend!

Friendly service and walking distance to thai boxing, restaurants, shops, a mall, and a longer walk to the beach. Go next door for an awesome indoor market - it seemed like where the locals shopped! This hostel offers tours, both boat tours to the beautiful Kho Phi Phi and for diving too!

Room Tip: They have dorm beds, or you can book a dorm room with friends.

The staff and owner Aoh, were very helpful and accomodating. They helped me get accustom to Patong and booked trips which was considerable cheaper than the other tour agencies. The location of the hostel is really in a good spot, next to the food market which really has amazing thai food, 10 min walk from the beach and way from the noisy streets so you will be able to have a peaceful sleep. Due to the reasons above I extended my stay at Dive den for the remainder of my time at Patong and I have no regrets.

This hostel has the best service I experienced while travelling through Japan and Thailand. We arrived late at night and they arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport (600baht). When we got there they help us to book an excursion to visit the Phi Phi islands the following morning. The room and bathroom were super clean! Aircon worked perfectly. The location couldn't be better. 10 mins. walk to the beach, 5 mins to all the action in Bangla road. But still far away enough to avoid all the noise and enjoy your sleep. Plus there's a night market next door, that sells all the yummy thai food you can think of. I can't stress enough how nice they staff was. We had a late night flight back to New York. After check out, they kept our bags and let us come back later to take a shower and refresh before our excruciating journey back home. If I ever make it to Patong no doubts I'll stay here again.

We arrived very late from Bangkok and Aoh-the manager and her assistant were there waiting for us. We had some problems with our ferry reservations and they spent like 2 hours, late that night, helping us to fix the problem. Thanks to them we had a nice stay in Phuket and were able to continue to Phi Phi as planned.
Rooms are clean and good for the price, and location is just perfect.

I had a private bath(toilet&shower room)

Pro: Location pretty good - very close to the big mall - to beach about 15 min walk / Price very affordable/ Free wifi! / rather clean / A/C, fridge / I felt safe. / Locker safe available on the 2nd floor. (There is a key to lock but you can bring your own lock for double security.) /Laundry service ( But,, it got some bad odor from not completely drying before folding.. It looked very nicely done though. Shame :( )

Con: Attract little ants very easily,, (maybe you can't avoid it there?) You should not have any sweets in your room. / Only 1 Towel provided (no beach towel so you should bring your own.)

Note: They have airport taxi service at 600B. (The guy was very reliable.) The receptionist girl was pretty nice but service is limited. They have a key deposit. (I think it was 500B?) which was returned the night before my check out. She sells tours but there are so many out there, I recommend to shop around.

A rather low profile hostel. It is one of Patong's hidden gem that is run by a family. The bed is big and comfortable. The room is clean with aircon,tv and a fridge. Service wise, it is rather 'Do It Yourself'. You can grab all the necessities at the nearly Carrefour supermarket which is not even 5min away. Only 2 blocks away from Patong beach.

If you crave for thai street fare, it is just downstairs by the road side in the evening. You can grab a meal at around 40-50 bhat. The owner has a long experience in the diving industry. Divers, have a chat with the owner. You will learn a lot about the dive sites around phuket.

Rather quiet place without people pressing you for tuktuk, massage, visit to the zoo and tours. There is a tour counter in front where you can ask for all these details at your own leisure. The tour counter lady can also advise you on street food. Give it a shot!
