“Lovely stay!”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

Dive Den is a simple no-frills accommodation, but clean and safe and comfortable. Awesome location - we got our dinner every night at the street market set up right below, there's a 7-11 right next door, it's super close to Jungceylon Mall, and Patong Beach and Bangla Road are an enjoyable 10-15 mins' walk away. Wifi was good and the dorm rooms were thoughtfully designed, with curtains partitioning the beds to allow for privacy, and loads of hangers and a shelf provided above each bed - very useful! although the hangers were a little dusty. There were a fridge and TV too! To top it all, the lady boss Aoh is sweet and helped us arrange loads of things like scooter rental, a trip to Ko Phi Phi (at by far the lowest prices around too!), and a taxi to the airport. Thank you Aoh, I miss you already!

Good location (next to "Baanzan" food market and Jungceylon Mall) the place runs by a nice lady and her family, good diving equipment for rental and purchase, the rooms have A/C and fridge, hot shower, simple but nice and comfortable.
Aoh (the owner) can book diving/snorkeling trips for you, taxi to the airport, laundry service, whatever a traveler and especially a diver needs is on the spot,
she is always welcoming and nice.

Dive Den is about 10-15 min walk to patong beach, the lively bars and restaurants. It is very close to a night market, which has delicious food and also near to shopping malls. It is clean and comfortable, rooms are good with balcony and an extremely comfortable bed! In fact possibly the comfiest bed we have slept in! The lady owner Aoh was by far one of the nicest hosts we have encountered, always with a welcome smile, asking about our day and genuinely wanting to make our stay as pleasant as possible. She offers good discounts on tours and says she informs guests to NOT book through travel agencies on the way as they overcharge and sometimes even try to persuade you to stay elsewhere!
She is strict about security and allowing unregistered guests into the guesthouse (particularly the 'hourly' kind of guests) which we totally agree with and felt safe knowing the cameras were there to protect guests as well as the property itself. There were also safety lockers on the second floor which were very handy. Free wifi, good sized rooms, lovely owner and for a good price...what more could you ask for!

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!
