Only stayed 1 night between heading to bangkok then back to new zealand but had a great time here. Friendly staff. Great cocktails and happy hour prices. Really tasty and cheap meals. In a 4 person dorm room. Had own bathroom and personal light and power point. Clean and tidy rooms. Nice atmosphere downstairs where you get food and drinks. A little hard to find because lack of signage but opposite a massage place and an bodega sign beside that. Reccomend to backpackers wanting to stay in patong beach for a few days.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Close to Bagla St and the beach, (5 minute walk) but on a small side street so it's away from the noise. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Have a bar and resturant which made it easy to meet other travelers. The food is great! (The smoothies were amazing!) The rooms were comfortable and had Air Con. They clean them everyday. If ever back in Patong Beach Id stay here no hesitation. Thanks Bodega

I stayed 2 nights, the first in an 8-person dorm and the second in a private room. Some rooms are located in the building across the street.

The hostel has a great vibe and it's really easy to meet someone to take a day trip with. Kirsten (apologies if the spelling is wrong), the Canadian is usually hanging around the bar, and was helpful and informative with questions about local attractions.

The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Toilets were likewise clean and there were 2 for each 8-person dorm/

The location is excellent. It's only 5 minutes walk to Bangla street and another 5 minutes to the beach.

The downside was the wifi was very iffy and the internet connection was intermittent. The second floor of the main building smells damp but this won't bother you unless you spend a lot of time at the internet kiosk.

Room Tip: If you stay in the private rooms, bewarned that we heard drilling during the night, which kept my fr...

I just spent 6 nights here and it was amazing. The staff is the best I have ever met in a hostel. They dealt with any and every question/ problem we had. The rooms are amazing and we probably spent too much time in them. The location is perfect! This is one of the hostels where you can tell that they simply want you to have an amazing time and they do what they can to make that possible. The only downside was the internet is a little iffy in the room. But this seems to be the case everywhere in Thailand so not really criticism, just an fyi! I would absolutely recommend staying here and if I am ever in the area again I will without a doubt be back!

My second hostel in Asia 3 days into a so travel of Thailand/Laos and this hostel was absolutely great. I was made to feel very welcome here and the 4 bed dorm I was in was the best dorm I've stayed in in 3 months of travel. Location was perfect, just off the Main Street and a 5 minute walk from Bangla Road. Food was also great, the daytime cafe is really good! Christian (sorry for spelling!) helped me book my tours and she was great! Really hope to return to this hostel soon, can't recommend it enough

Room Tip: The 4 bed dorm/ensure was great!

I stayed here for 3 nights in the double bedroom with private bathroom. The room is clean and gets cleaned every day. No toiletries are provided but a towel is given. There is free wifi provided but the signal is not that great. Sometimes we have to turn the modem off and on again to get the signal going again. The location of the hostel is good- not in a busy street and not so secluded. There are many food shops and convenience marts around with a quick walk to the Jungceylon shopping mall. The beach is about 5-10 mins walk away.
