About Phuket Backpacker Hostel

Sawas-Dee (welcome) to Phuket Backpacker. We are centrally located in the bustling heart of Phuket Town. A town rich with Thai culture and history.

We offer a home away from home. With our newly renovated property we offer our guests clean and comfortable accommodation set in a contemporary boutique Chinese Asian fusion style.

Phuket is more than just beaches - of which we have plenty! Phuket town is rich with architectural gems from Classic Chino-Portuguese homes, Wat's (Thai temples) and Chinese shrines etc.
We also provide custom trips to various highlights, including PhiPhi island by big boat package ,PhiPhi speed boat package, or even PhiPhi one way ticket , Jame bond island,Sea canoe or kayak , , and many others. (give us a one-day notice and we’ll organize even the most bizarre trip!)
As a predominantly Buddhist culture you will find Buddhism cymbals in most every-day lives. Every Buddhist home will have not only a small alter at which to pray, but a Spirit House which protects the home from evil spirits. One of the most charming sights for a Farang (foreigner) is to wake early morning and watch the Monks clad in saffron color robes walk the streets bare foot looking for donations of breakfast.

On top of the architecture and religious aspects of Phuket town you can get a real taste of Thai local life - take a slow walk around the central market and watch the world go by from many of the roadside coffee shops.

Then we have our beautiful beaches, amongst the best in the world. From the tourist hot spot of Patong Beach to the more remote and less trodden beaches of Cape Panwa - All within easy reach as the central bus terminal is only 2 minutes walk from our property - fares start from only Bht 25 (54 US cents).

Need modern convenience? We are only 5 minutes away from the newly opened central shopping center - this center boasts world class brands, eateries and a multi screen Cineplex.

After a busy day sight seeing sit back and relax, make yourself comfortable in our comfortable lounge, discuss your day’s adventures and exchange life stories with fellow backpackers from around the globe.

So, if you are looking for a real slice of Thai life in a cost effective comfortable surrounding then look no further than Phuket Back Packers - it's our sincere pleasure to welcome you with Traditional Thai grace.
