Amazing a/c and comfy beds, and great staff that helped with all our needs!

Bring your own towel or rent one for 150bht.

Walking distance to Patong beach. Lots of shopping areas very close.

Helpful for arranging cabs and tours to the islands.

Nipped in to ask if they had the Manchester United v Southampton match on live TV which they accommodated for us and put it on which was good of them. Very friendly staff, played great music deep house!
Great food and drink menu, good prices.
Also the trips and travel prices they had there are well worth it.. Very reasonable!

Stayed here for a couple of nights in April 2014 -

All of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

I stayed in both a private double room and a dorm - both were clean, tidy and spacious.

Good food and fruit shakes!

Cheap scooter hire as well which is a bonus!

Would definitely go back.

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.
