Don't hesitate, book it! Clean rooms, friendly and helpfull staff which can organise anything you need at a good price. Only possible inconvenience is that it is a short (5-10min) walk away from where everything happens. Which, since you are coming to sodom is a good thing, trust me!

The owner was very helpful. When we wanted to Tiger Kingdom he said he would drop us and charge only 200 baht where as the taxi/tuk tuk were quoting 400 baht. He also agreed to drop me to Khao San Road one night. He got us half price for the Phi Phi Island Day Tour as well.The location is also good as you are only 5 minute drive away from Bangla Road, where all the noise is.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in a private room, the hostel is very cool. for the price, rooms, and the staff is very friendly. its surroundings are also very quiet for the night. the hostel also provides motors for rent for $ 250 baht a day. the problem was our room was on the 5th floor and we must every day use the stairs to get there, it's very tiring after we spent a whole day to explore the tourist attractions around Phuket by foot :D.

We stayed here for a few nights in February, and thought it was a great hostel. It was only a hosrt walk to everything, and their staff were always really happy to help with any questions. Their wifi wasn't working for one day, and we were offered their personal laptop to use if need be!

The room was basic, but totally clean and all you can ask for at that price! We stayed on the 5th floor - so there were lots of stairs whenever we went in and out, and I was very thankful I had a backpack not a suitcase, but it also made for a good viewpoint.

One thing that was a little disappointing, was when we booked last year it said that breakfast was included in the rate, and when we got there we were told that the included breakfasts finished last year. For the cost of buying a breakfast somewhere we couldn't be bothered arguing, but it was a bit annoying.

Apart from that, a great hostel.

Room Tip: Check what level you are on if you have a suitcase! :)

I'll start saying that in our room (double) we had: big tv with lots of english channels, computer (!!!), fridge, toilet/shower. Awesome! The room was clean, big and nice. The hostel also offers motorbike for 250bath per day, cheap boat tickets and restaurant. I have been in 7 hostels in Thailand and this one was the best during my Travel... Cool staff! Helpful and nice. 5 minutes walk to the Malin Plaza (a night market in Patong) and 10 minutes walk to Patong Beach.

Highly recommended :)
