Liked: The only thing I didn't like at this hostel was our room. It was so dark due to the very blue walls. Also, the bathroom was not completely clean.

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.

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!
