Aimee Cleary

04 February 2009 Aimee would recommend this property

Liked: Friendly staff, break common room and facilities. While it was a great place to meet people, it was a little loud at night, which wasn't a problem for me, but may be for some. We stayed on the ground floor, so maybe it was quieter on other floors.

Disliked: Aimee left no negative feedback.

NICOLE MANNING

12 October 2008 NICOLE would recommend this property

Liked: Straight out the front door turn right and take ten steps, you have ALL the local buses that go all around Phuket (beats the tuk tuk)for 30B each way, thats only $1.20 AUS. Its also the main road the Vegi Festival is on and the food stalls are right at your front door, the local restaurants are fantastic and for about 50B each you get a full meal and drink! The staff are more than happy to organise everything from your smelly washing for 150B to motorbike hire and all the touristy things that go with Thailand! And lets not forget the CHEAP alochol they have waiting for you in reception. The best stay I had in Phuket.
