"Staff were very friendly and the whole place was really clean. Good location. Ideal for someone trying to do Thailand as cheap as possible but still getting comfort. Great value for money."

Customer review

09 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Wonderful place to stay. It's away from the beaches but there are buses that go to all from right outside. There's free internet, a kitchen and a huuuuuuuuge selection of dvds for the those cheap evenings in. There a great garden and it's nice to sit there at night. One thing I will say is to not trust them with your colours and whites when it comes to getting your laundry done. Also, the 'Fully air conditioned dorm' has the air con off from 12 till 6pm. Not great for a hangover or a daytime nap.Don't let this deter you. It's amazing and really easy to meet people.

Liked: I stayed here twice and was very clean hostel but didnt find the staff that friendly.Rooms are either too hot or too cold so never really had a good sleep. I booked to stay here for 2 nights but plans changed so cancelled one night and they would not provide a full refund. location is ok if you just want to stay in Phuket for a couple nights.

Customer review

28 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It's quite chilled and if you want to go to the beach or any of the other attractions around Phuket it's all accessible. Still saying that, Phuket town is a bit dead most of the time so if you want bars and clubs you might want to move on after a day or two. But otherwise the hostel is pretty good. Would happily stay again.

23 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good location due to near bus terminal to the beaches but far from Bus terminal which airport bus stop. Personal key with sensor provided and easy to use. We choose private en-suite and there is a television that only can play DVD. One of the staff not friendly, other staff friendly and helpful. We can get better facilities with a few baht more from other guest house near airport bus terminal.
