"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."

22 January 2007 would recommend this property

Liked: The room we got is big and clean, we had our own ref and toilet. the bed is good for 2. detached from the rest and there is a separate area where you can sit and relax, enjoy food n drinks. i also like the free internet access 24/7 with CDRW so i was able to save a lot of pictures. the reception ppl are also very friendly and accomodating. the breakfast (bread, coffee, jam and butter) is also a big help to start the day. the hostel is near the bus terminal so i can go to patong beach for 20baht per way. but we found out the buses stop from terminal to terminal, if you alight somewhere in the middle, you will need to take the local taxi (tuktuk) going back to hotel which costs 400 baht! :( so we need to satisfy ourselves with bus going to patong beach n the other beaches, so long as there is the bus terminal. :)

20 January 2007 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great rooms, very clean. Brilliant dvd collection to watch on the massive wide scrren tv in common room. Very modern and great value for money. Although it is quite far from all the beaches buses run from right outside the hostel all day for just 20Bht. About 20mins to beaches but much cheaper and nicer than the guesthouses at the beach.
