Liked: Super clean and they have aircon in the dorms!!! YAY!!!

Disliked: The nature of the location means people are in and out at all hours of the night... not the hostels fault, just the nature of it being accessible to the airport.

Liked: Well located, many services offered. Good rooms.

Disliked: More staff necessary, especially english talking and early in the morning.The second building needs more work on it. It stinks in common areas (must have been a chicken stall before) and atmosphere is poor.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Liked: The location is good for seeing the night market and getting cheap buses to the more touristy beaches. The town itself is charming but only caught our attention for a few days.

Disliked: The construction outside our hostel was very loud most mornings but that sort of thing is unavoidable I suppose. The night market is fun, as was touring Phuket town for a day, but if you're looking for a nice beach this isn't the best location.

Liked: Private rooms were relatively clean.

Disliked: FAR FAR from the beach (or anything) in the backstreets of phuket, nothing to do for miles around. Horrible location. The walk to my room felt like walking through a prison.
