“Brilliant if you are looking for a cheap, clean and friendly hostel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely stay here. The rooms were basic but had everything I needed in a cheap room for 2 nights. Clean room, clean sheets and towels. Had a tv, fridge, air con.

Was in a good position, 5 minute walk from the main strip. Easy enough to get too, far away enough from the noise.

Ran by a lovely English man and Thai lady. They helped us get the cheapest boat trips and helped us arrange our travels after wards. They were interested in how our stay was and made sure everything was okay.

Overall lovely stay here. Would recommend to any back packers/travellers!!

Nice accommodation at a very affordable price . Rooms cleaned daily and spotless , with fridge , air con , tv , nice bathroom with hot shower . Located by a night market selling nice food and by a big shopping centre . Plenty of bars and restaurants in easy walking distance . Beach a little further away but worth the walk ! Lady owner was lovely , very helpful and got us good discounts on excursions .
Highly recommend.

I stayed in the dorm with 4 of my friends. Everything was clean and comfortable. Dive Den is about 10 minutes walk to the beach. But is close to many things in Patong. The Muay Thai Boxing stadium is just nearby. The view from the roof is pretty cool too.

On our arrival we were pleased to see that the hotel was located right next to the night market which has lots of great cheap food!! The lady owner of the hotel was really nice and helpful and have us very good discounts on getting to Koh Samui and we also did a day trip to the James Bond island which including canoeing which was fantastic and I would highly recommend. The room itself was a really good size with a telly and fridge, luxuries we aren't used to!! The bed was really big and the bathroom was spotless with a good and hot shower!! As I said we were literally right by the night market, this didn't create any noise for us in our room, and over the road is a big shopping centre with lots of shops and restaurants. You can walk through the shopping centre to get to the lovely beach, so all in all about a ten minute walk. Great stay and would definitely recommend!

Friendly service and walking distance to thai boxing, restaurants, shops, a mall, and a longer walk to the beach. Go next door for an awesome indoor market - it seemed like where the locals shopped! This hostel offers tours, both boat tours to the beautiful Kho Phi Phi and for diving too!

Room Tip: They have dorm beds, or you can book a dorm room with friends.

The staff and owner Aoh, were very helpful and accomodating. They helped me get accustom to Patong and booked trips which was considerable cheaper than the other tour agencies. The location of the hostel is really in a good spot, next to the food market which really has amazing thai food, 10 min walk from the beach and way from the noisy streets so you will be able to have a peaceful sleep. Due to the reasons above I extended my stay at Dive den for the remainder of my time at Patong and I have no regrets.

This hostel has the best service I experienced while travelling through Japan and Thailand. We arrived late at night and they arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport (600baht). When we got there they help us to book an excursion to visit the Phi Phi islands the following morning. The room and bathroom were super clean! Aircon worked perfectly. The location couldn't be better. 10 mins. walk to the beach, 5 mins to all the action in Bangla road. But still far away enough to avoid all the noise and enjoy your sleep. Plus there's a night market next door, that sells all the yummy thai food you can think of. I can't stress enough how nice they staff was. We had a late night flight back to New York. After check out, they kept our bags and let us come back later to take a shower and refresh before our excruciating journey back home. If I ever make it to Patong no doubts I'll stay here again.
