The staff here is awesome! They were so good to us. We stayed here for over a week. We started in one room, and then were able to move into a room that could sleep all 4 of us. Both rooms were very nice. DVD player, TV (with channels), Refrigerator, A/C, fresh towels every day, water bottles every day, if I ever go back to Patong I will definitely stay here! A+++ experience!

Stayed here the whole time I was in Phuket!
The rooms are nothing special but clean, with all the working necessities.
However, the family was so sweet! Helped us book all of our activities and even got us cheaper prices for every single one of them! SOOOO helpful and kind.
The father even personally drove us to the airport at the end of our trip.
Just amazingly sweet people!
(There is one Thai man that works there that can be grumpy but I only saw him twice. haha)
I actually did a blog review on my stay if you want to check it out:

If you want a cheap accommodation this is a good option: rooms are ok, clean, you get bottles of water and your towels are changed after you come back from the beach...

...BUT keep in mind that the walls have no anti-noise isolation: you can hear everything happening in the neighbours rooms: people talking, loud TV and even couples having sex...

If you are party animals and reading this: please RESPECT other people in the guesthouse who want to sleep! After 11pm you should WHISPER, not talk loudly like an idiot not knowing that there are other people who want to sleep. You can watch TV but at a minimum volume. Don't slam the door, close it gently. Don't walk up the stairs like an elephant, but walk silently. Thank you.

Me and my girlfriend are not party animals, but our room neighbours were. Some people just enter the guest house after midnight and speak loudly. They do not care about who wants to sleep. Some enter at 5am and begin to argue... this happens EVERY NIGHT.
Even with the ear plugs I was waked up several times. I slept very badly and I wish I would have spent more money and be somewhere else...

Nothing personal against the staff (family business: friendly people) but I cannot recommend this place to people like me, sensitive to noise and looking for a place where they can sleep well.

If you are a party animal, this is the perfect place, not far from Bangla and if you come back drunk, you will probably sleep well even if there is an earthquake.

If you are looking for a quite place and can afford a bit more, go e.g. to Boomerang Inn, you will get better sleep quality.

Suggestion for the staff: you should not be a police, I understand that. But maybe remove TV, so nobody will use it after 11pm and disturb who wants to sleep. Put a paper with some rules in every room.

the owner of som guesthouse is really friendly. Based on my experience, we got new room that always clean everyday.

The situation in this guesthouse so quiet even in front of this guesthouse so many shop that open until midnight.

Just walking around 1 km or 5 minutes, we can find patong beach. And don't worry for meal because so many shop and foodcourt near this guesthouse.

The location is really easy because we can see from main road.

This is not big hotel but all the things could be find here was a good room, nice breakfast, super location. The location of Som guest House not too bad, i could take about some walk to come for swimming. They can organize and let us customize our tour easily but almost of tours for traveling around not too expensive

Not a lot needs to be said about this place as it is that nice.
It is very clean, very cheap, has very helpful staff and has a great interior.
Easy to find using there instruction. A 10 min walk to the patong beach but i think this was a gd thing. Walking back to this place in the night i felt safe as it was well lit.

Its the cheapest cleanest place to stay in Patong area, the Korean owners are very nice and helpful, you can actually set a budget and let them decide for you which tour you can join, the only thing is that since the bedrooms are separated by thin wall, sometimes we could hear people talking and laughing (if they're talking loudly), for a price as cheap as that, I'd recommend this place to everyone who have a tight budget ;)
