Liked: My second stay in this hostel as first time was FAB! Very sociable, easy to meet people. Located away from main tourist area which means its less quiet, but there are still markets and shops nearby as well as plenty of bars and restaurants. Bus to beaches are pennies!

Liked: Great atmosphere and base to explore surrounding areas..Whilst in Phuket Town it costs little to get to any of the other beaches by local bus (great way of meeting the Thai locals too) or if there a few days hire yourself a scooter, the staff will help you out!

29 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We stayed in a dbl room with a/c. It was huge! Only criticism was that we couldn't watch any normal channels, just DVDs which we rented from hostel for 20 bht. Also the door didn't feel that secure but the hostel front entrance had good security. Also not an overly fun hostel for those looking to meet people. Overall 4 out of 5.
