“Good price for long stay”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

I was stayed in this hostel twice in their dorm room, rooms with AC is comfortable for sleeping, clean toilet with hot shower, good location just at the corner between lebuh muntri and love lane, easy to go around from here. Recommended for those want to stay for budget.

The staff were nice & helpful & so was our 4 bedded room!
Communal seating area was helpful & refreshments available nightly.
Breakfast is basic but hey what do you expect at a cheap & cheerful backpackers.
Honestly this place was nice compared to some other rooms we sighted in the area. (one place had a bucket as a toilet).
Perfectly located for sightseeing.

In short do NOT stay here!!! My partner and I have been travelling for eight months and this is the worst hotel we have stayed in by far!. The gentleman on reception ( Tim ) is extremely friendly and that is the only nice thing about this awful hotel. We were taken to a corridor behind reception where the smell of excrement is horric. We stayed in room 5 (shared bathrooms only ) opposite the two toilets and when we were shown inside I was shocked, the room is very small and the walls are literally just plasterboards which have a two inch gap under the ceiling all around the room so mosquitos and the smells from the loo's can get in freely. Ther are small ants on all the walls in the bedroom and shared bathroom areas. Our box room with a double bed in was extremely small with a small desk and chair that has no purpose as I can't imagine anyone wanting to write their memoirs in there - it is like a dingy prison cell that stinks! The bedding was filthy with lots of other peoples hair on and the sheet and pillows had dubious stains on them,needless to say we both slept in our clothes on top of the bedding all night. After a 15 hour day of travelling I felt like I was in hell and we dreaded having to go back to our so called room after our evening meal. As the walls are paper thin you can hear the other guests every movement and in the morning we couldn't wait to check out. We had made the mistake of booking this online but my advise is to go to the main road around the corner ( the Phuket bus drops you on there ) and there are some better guesthouses including The Banana Guesthouse. Hope this helps!
