Stayed here for one night on the day we flew in, was just what we needed. The lady at the front desk was such a sweet heart and put a smile on our faces without even saying anything. The location was great, just a short walk to Bangla Road. The dorm we stayed in was very comfortable and the bathrooms...

The staff was very kind and helpful. the toilets were clean and the beds were comfortable enough for me...

The location is strategic, but don't expect too much about the facilities. When I was there, the air condition in the room is doesn't work, not clean and need a reparation. The staff not really helpful, when I asked about a cab they don't really help much.

Good location, comfy clean beds, decent toilets, really helpful and friendly staff, good for the money.. the hallways are a bit run down and smelly, they need a clean up but apart from that it was worth the small amount you pay x

The place doesn't have much to offer but it's very well localized in the best part of Patong, near the beach and the street with all bars and nightclubs. It's difficult to locate the hostel so party attention to the signs in front of the stores.

We arrived with our booking already being completed (8 people) and the receptionist simply told us that the rooms weren't available. We asked to be compensated and he said he doesn't care if we leave.

Perfect location to stay on Patong beach at very cheap rates, however, dorms are not really that good in fact very poor with respect to maintenance and interior. Washrooms are not that good, and the staff is not that friendly either. The only great thing about this place was the people we met here. everyone was amazing, friendly talks and...

This hostel was bleak with an unsafe feel. Was unable to lock our bedroom doors and the lockers needed a padlock. Staff were unfriendly and seemed irritable. Bedsheets hadn't been changed and I found a used earplug under the pillow. Ok to stay over for one night if you're on a budget but wouldn't stay longer.

I chose to stay at the Backpacker Hostel in Patong Beach after reading the great reviews about being a party hostel and central to Bangla Road. On the first night we stayed there my friends and I were in a mixed 8 bed dorm. We drank with the other backpackers in the smokers area and went out later that night....

The day receptionist and social atmosphere of other backpackers were the only positives of staying in this hostel. "Mama" The woman running reception at night ruined our stay, consistently yelling at customers and threatening to kick them out over unessessary things. Moved to bearpackers for $6AUD more (which is nothing) up the road and am amazed at the difference of...
