"The room was nice & spacious, we had a private e-suite which was good value for money. Nice bar area with decent price on drinks at happy hour. Decent shower & bathroom in general"

Location Information

Rucksack Hostel is located in the centre of Phuket Town, the origin of Phuket Thai-Chinese culture. Phuket town is rich with architectural gems from Classic Chino-Portugese homes, Wat's (Thai temples) and Chinese shrines etc. On top of the architectural and religious attractions of Phuket town you can get a real taste of Thai local life - take a slow walk around the central market and watch the world go by from many of the roadside coffee shops. As a predominantly Buddhist culture you will find Buddhism cymbals in most every-day lives. One of the most charming sights for a Farang (foreigner) is to wake early morning and watch the Monks clad in saffron color robes walk the streets bare foot looking for donations of breakfast.

But let us not forget Phuket's beautiful beaches! (Of which there are many). From the tourist hot spot of Patong Beach to the more remote and less trodden beaches of Cape Panwa. All are within easy reach as there is a bus stop literally right outside our door!

Need modern convenience? We are only 5 minutes away from the newly opened Central Festival shopping centre. This center boasts world class brands, eateries and a multi screen Cineplex.
