Liked: this is a great place to meet other travellers, and the free internet and dvd room is really good for when the weathers bad or you just want to chill out. However, i found it really dirty there, our room was not nice and the bathroom stank even though it was a private one so we ended up changing rooms. we also saw 2 cockroaches, personally killing one of them which was not nice and there was a big rat in the dorms. Patrick is very helpful but the rest of the staff are very inconsiderate, making noise and playing music till late and then waking u up at 7,. so if all you want is a good place to meet people, its great, but if you want somewhere clean ( the water is also yellow, not nice!) then do not stay here.

Liked: Don't really know why I stayed in phuket town. It's way better in Patong beach. There is absolutly nothing to do in town. Around the hostel is just a lot of small restaurants and a few clothshops where I guess only the locals go.The hostel is alright. Got loads of dvs movies...but I mean, you're not in thailand to watch movies. Free internet..a bit slow sometimes but still :)

Liked: Great hostel, enjoyed our stay. Would recommend staying in Patong rather than Phuket town though as there are more activities and choices of bars etc, and you're at beach already so you don't need to get the bus which can take nearly an hour at busy times. Also we found the staff a bit inconsiderate in the mornings as they were very loud in the halls from as early as 7am(the 4 mornings we were there!) and that's early for some of us!! Overall i'd say stay here if you want to be in the town.
