“Great hostel, great staff!”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

It was basically a hotel room with 4 beds in each room. Cleaned every day, good air conditioning, good free internet. Never any noise after hours. 15s walk to corner store, 60s to the night food market, 5-6min to the beach, 15-20min to Bangla Rd.

The staff are the best. They remembered my name from the start, and always said hi when I went in or out. They are super helpful for booking tours, scooters, choosing a restaurant or bar, whatever. We spent 2 nights just chilling in the hostel bar with the staff.

Would definitely stay here again.

It's a bit far from the action, about 20 minute walk to the beach and main streets but that means it's a quieter place to sleep. The staff were young and friendly. Our room was decent but needs a bit of upkeep. The billiard table/bar area is a great place to meet people. We booked a tour with them to snorkel which was fun.

In a nutshell, this was a clean and comfortable place to stay. Was so relieved after hearing horror stories about Phuket hostels being full of cockroaches but this place was just lovely. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the location is close enough to bangla road- recommend.

Room Tip: I had a dorm which was great only issue was my bed was right next to the air con, otherwise was grea...

This is an unbelievable hostel. When looking for a hostel I want a few things, nice/helpful staff, good location, and an area to meet people. This place has them all! The staff and owner are amazing and super helpful! The food was delicious as well as the drinks. It's within walking distance of the beach and has a ton of options for things to do during the day. I suggest going here!

We tried the dorm and the private room, both are very special and comfortable.

At private room we have a computer, tv, minibar and towels.

The staff is very nice (some of them just need to improve their English).

The owner is a very nice guy and helped us with the tours and all information we needed.

They have a good area with music at the main entrance and you can stay there talking and drinking something. But you also can enjoy the silence at the rooms.

They have good wifi.

We definitely recommend this hostel!

Good location, good staff, spacious room make me feel comfort. I never feel lonely even i was solo traveller. There are a big safety box for us in the room, so we can put or bag inside and feel safe even it is a dormitory room.
