We spent one night here after returning from Koh Tao. It had everything we needed and the staff were super friendly! Definitely great value for what we paid and I would not hesitate in staying here again :)

We spend a night here after comng over from koh phi phi, its a well run backpackers, big social area, lots of DVDs and a big tv to watch them on, the staff were very helpful, we only stayed one night as that's really all you need to see the old town. Only bad point was our room was not in the main builting, but 3 doors down and behind another business. But apart from that it was a good stay!

so nice to come to a place where you find everything you need after long travel days! I was specially impressed by the very helpful friendly people working there who did not spare any effort to help me get my things done no matter what time ...even in the middle of the night! This was just great! Thank you Arti! :)

I only stayed one night before heading off for Phi Phi first thing in the morning so I didnt manage to see all of the facilities. but it was EXTREMELY clean, the air con was great and the receptionists were extremely helpful and friendly. I booked my ticket to the pier and the boat to phi phi from them and it was mega easy to do and a good price! The atmosphere was great and easy to meet new people!
As I said, I didnt stay more than one night but if I had to choose somewhere as a base in Phuket- this would be it. The only thing is that ti is located in the old town where there really isnt much going on. if you want to stay in Phuket longer- I would recommend staying near the beach rather than paying for a taxi each day!

I loved this place!! The enviroment in the hotel was really friendly and social. They had a media room which was amazing because we had been traveling for 2 months and needed a little time to rest. They had a HUGE movie selection and comfy couches. They had a nice little restaurant and a cute little garden area. The rooms were spacious and the hostels were updated looking. We also loved that they had motorbike rentals and a main bus stop was littlerally right in front of the place. Super convienent. Also a 7 11 next door but those are everywhere haha. I did not want to stay in Patong because well everyone said they hated it and it was so crowded. Here we could still walk to restaurants and the local night market and a nice park. And then we would ride the motorbike to all the beaches or attractions during the day and then to Patong for the nightlife. I highly recommend this place!!
