Liked: The very large DVD collection was even better than it sounded on here! Because there's NOTHING to do in phuket town except visit big shopping centres, it was great how good the common room area was and good to meet other young travellers.

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.
