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!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

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.

Customer review

14 November 2009

Liked: If you want to meet new people who are also traveling this is the place to be. The double rooms are definitely not value for money, you can get much better quality rooms in phuket town at cheaper price and more convenient as well, The location is a bit quiet at night, but good location during the day because right outside the bus stop to patong and beaches. As soon as we told the reception we want to cancel the rest of the stay, we had to pay for 2 nights(we stayed there 3 nights rather than 5 because we found cheaper and better quality place) the lady at reception was a bit rude to us after that for the remaining 2 nights! Will not go back for sure.

Overall big thumbs up!

Liked: Really nice hostel and very friendly staff, they also organised a bus for us to Ko Pha Ngan no problem. Well situated in Phuket town which has a great market nearby, but it is quite far to the beaches (don't get ripped off!). All over a great place, has a big common room to mingle.
