“clean, cheap, location, swimming pool!”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

we stayed here for 1 week in feb 2013
things we liked about the hotel:
- location
- pool
- clean rooms
- internet
- big beds
- big bathrooms

things we didnt like about the hotel:
- strange hotel staff, two staff members cornered me asking about how much i paied for the room, even though they were just cleaning staff. I felt strange and intimidated as they followed me into my room and wouldnt leave.
they also were generally unfriendly, and unaccomodating.

thats about it, desipte that it was a good hotel and was good value.

We stayed here in August 2011. A perfect value for money and clean rooms. we just paid 650 THB for a standard double room.

If you are going to spend the phuket trip majorly with island tours you just need a place to crash, this is the place.

would suggest for family also.

Only drawback is that there is a nasty river in the backside of the hotel.

Nice place, very nice people, clean and comfortable. The swimminpool is very small, but the hotel is 5 minutes to the beach, why bother. A/C, TV hot water, big bathroom and fairly clean room. It is 10 minutes walk to the city centre. You can rent a bike from the hotel at a better price than bike rentals in town. In some rooms the hot water works only if you switch on one of the light in the room.
At the moment of my visit there were restructuring the hotel next to this, so some noise early in the morning can be heared.
It is not listed in Booking.com

Probably the best place I stayed at in Thailand. So cheap, free internet, awesome pool, fantastic people. Rooms are basic (pretty nice for hostels), and clean, which is a great start for a cheap hostel! Nice small pool (something hostels very rarely have). Stayed at other 5* hotels in Phuket, and this hostel was were I had the most fun. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Tip: try ask for the room by the pool, there's no elevators so it makes it a lot easier if you n...

My boyfriend and I stayed here in December 2012 for 2 nights. The double room that we had was spacious and clean. When the tap broke somebody came to fix it straight away. We met lots of people in this guesthouse as there was a communal area where people could chat and get together. The reception staff were lovely and friendly, the girls even brought me a flower to put in my hair! :) The guy let us stay in the pool until early morning and didn't complain once. There is a bar there where you can purchase drinks and pay for them at the end of the night or you are allowed to buy your own and bring them in. Close to main party road, beach and loads of restaurants and bars! The guesthouse also does food which is apparently great! Great place, great pool. Fab experience staying here and would stay here again.

Booked this place for new years eve for a couple of nights.Thought it sounded great value but was dissappointed.The main reason was the bed bugs! Stayed in a room with two beds and had to switch beds for the second night after being bitten and killing about 20 of the little critters.Still some in the other bed,though not as bad.My advice is -if you do book this place then check the mattress,headboard etc before taking the room.
