Liked: The staff was really friendly and the location is alright... right near the buses.

Disliked: they don't turn on the AC till 10pm which sucms because it's hot. probably one of the worst hostels I've stayed. there we're red ants that kept crawling on my bed and biting me.

Liked: cheap and clean hostel, good for a few nights, pretty small rooms though

Disliked: the staff was unfriendly unfortunately... even though we tried our best to get a smile back - no chance... its not really a backpackers hostel in my opinion but a way to have a few cheap nights in the heart of phuket town. not recommendable for longer stays due to missing love within the building ;)

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Liked: The hostel was a good size, with very good wifi, comfortable beds and nice social area with a free pool table and TV area, good services local bus services to the two local beaches although both a fair distance away. Another plus was that there was good local food near by at a great price and a 7/11 next door for all cheap necessities such as water and crisps etc.

Disliked: The hostel was a bit out of the way and although the bus services ran frequently enough they stopped at around 5pm so to have a fun fulfilled day at the beach you needed to leave early to make the most of it. The air conditioning in my particular room was VERY cold during the night to the point people in the room would have to put hoodies on during the night and of course during the day the room was sweltering (although it's rare you would be there)

Liked: Close to old pukhet town. Some of the staff were friendly. Others didn't care. Accidentally booked for a night later, and they accommodated since they had many empty beds.

Disliked: No air conditioning for the room. So hot couldn't breathe. They turn the one ac on for the whole floor at 10pm and turn it off at 7am. No real privacy in the rooms. Very tiny rooms. No where to put your stuff. It's not entirely closed off, so you can hear noise from other rooms and from people in the hall.No soap for the washroom sink. One of the two showers didn't work. Shoes not allowed inside the hostel but the floor of the toilets were dirty. No towels. Not many restaurants around. Wouldn't stay again.
