*Review for staying in late November 2013.
Booked a mixed dorm room for 1 night but I got upgraded to a private twin bed room for the first night because it's still newly opened period, and I stayed longer and got changed to a private double bed room. The en-suite rooms were so huge and spacious. The bed was so comfy as same as a nice 4-star hotel. The air-conditioner was very good! There were also flat-screen TV & a fridge in room. There was a large balcony as well, so I could hang my towel & wet clothes. The lobby and common area were very well decorated and very cute. I took loads of photos in there! The Reception staff who is also an owner speaks very well English, Mandarin and Japanese. The staff here were very helpful, friendly, and willing to help you in anything.
Some might think the hostel is a bit out of the way, but it was actually about 10-15mins nice walk to the beach just down Phrabaramee Road. Nearby the hostel, there were many places to eat, mostly local Thai food, many Muslim restaurants with Halal Thai food and western food (maybe because Patong Mosque was just down the road), Chicken rice, noodle shop, Somtam, Pad Thai, etc. Opposite side, there was a convenient store "Super Cheap", Phuket's own brand! Stuff here were really cheap, a lot cheaper than other convenient store brands. Government Saving Bank (GSB=Aomsin Bank)is just around the corner for a landmark point.
At first I found it a bit far from Patong lively area, but it turned out to be very good to sleep! It only took 5mins by motor bike taxi to Jungceylon(huge shopping mall), Bangla street (nightlife), Banzaan Market(good for cheap street food), and to the beach. Patong streets nowadays could be really busy and the traffic could be really bad during rush hours so beside walking, motorbike taxi is another good option for cheap travel.
Overall my stay here for 5 nights was excellent! I enjoyed it very much and would love to recommend this place to anyone. I will definitely come back again!
