Liked: There was a lot of atmosphere in the common room: bar, pool table, tables and places to sit, but it was very quiet near the rooms so easy to rest! The staff were helpful and friendly. Wifi is working well in the rooms aswell.

Disliked: There was mold on the walls. But otherwise it was clean.

Liked: Good value. Great staff. Kitchen for guests. Nice tv room with lots and lots of dvds. On Friday nights there is a cooking class which is fun a great way to interact with staff and other guests and you get the free food!

Disliked: The dorm room is absolutely tiny and quite hot and smelly. I think the air conditioning just didn't reach our room very well and I think the air conditioning is better in other rooms/ cubicles! ;) the bathroom was a bit smelly all the time but not that bad.

Liked: you shud definately stay in the private room if you can because it is a lot less noisy than the dorms. the facilties are excellent and the private room is hotel standard. the staff are very friendly.

Disliked: some people were very noisy outside our room from midnight to 2am - but this is totally not the fault of the hostel.

Liked: It's a nice and quite hostle. I had a big 4 bed dorm. But there are smaller ones. It's verry clean and the have a nice bar with happy hour and good value food

Disliked: You can't lock the door, if you do in the night they'll open it again. So when you leave you can't lock it anyway. There are lockers but only for small valuals not for you wholl backpack. Besides that, you are in Phucket town. So you need 30-45 min to get to the bars and beach. But the hostel is in general verry nice.
