It was really difficult to find Boost because it is hidden down a small lane off Karon Beach and none of the locals knew about it. First impressions were not so great as it is near a few seedy looking bars. However, all was well by the morning when we went out to find the area a lot nicer by daylight. The owner, Lee, is a top guy who is super friendly. The area was actually quite safe after all, Lee would often go out and leave his mobile phone on the side near the front door for everyone to see.
The room was cleaned incredibly well everyday and was a good size with air con, en suite, and a locker to secure valuables. Boost was really good value at almost half the price of the surrounding hotels, I would definitely go back here if revisiting Phuket.
