"Close to old pukhet town. Some of the staff were friendly. Others didn't care. Accidentally booked for a night later, and they accommodated since they had many empty beds."

11 May 2007 Sarah would recommend this property

Liked: Free dvds and internet were great!Even though the hostel was great, i do not rate Phuket town highley. I would only come back here if i was heading to the airport due to there not being anything to do close by. But my opinion on the hostel generally is excellent, maybe they should set one up in Patong Beach where we are heading today, that would be great!
