Really friendly welcome on reception, our private double had AC and a television and the dorm rooms looked really nice too. Bed comfy, building really clean and quirky, downstairs there was a communal living room with sofas and tv with loads of DVDs to use. Right in the middle of Phuket old town but far from any beaches.

very nice hostel, nice people, nice atmosphere! they even made a BBQ on friday night for the hostel guests for a good price and it was a nice possibility to meet other guests. i had the best pad thai ever there. after a while almost everybody who had the BBQ and some beers afterwards decided to go partying together and so about 25 strangers suddenly became friends having a great night out. the hostel itself is clean and safe, has super cozy corners to chill out and apparently they even have a pool, which we havent seen though because it was under maintenance. kata beach is only 5-10 minutes walk away from the hostel. i would always recommend FIN hostel and if i went back to phuket 100% i stayed there.lil hint: if you want to have good & cheap food around FIN hostel go to the restaurant 20 meters to their left. it's on the same street and it has a pool table, you will recognize it. its the best food we found in kata beach and super cheap, the breakfast is amazing (better than the one FIN offers to be honest ;)) and the owner (an old european guy) is super friendly and open to talk to everyone. if you need any tipps ask him - he is always helpful !! be nice to him ! :)

Good location, and the hostel staff recomended a place just across the road to rent motorbikes from which was a great way to see the island. There's not much night-life in Karon but there is a great bar 2 mins from the hostel that's really good.

Steve and Lek were really helpful. clean and big lockers. Breakfast was great too. Got us good deals for ferry to Koh Phi Phi and recommended good shops. Would recommend for anyone looking to stay in Karon beach. Less than five minutes to beach and lots of shops and restaurants nearby.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Bunk beds were the best I have ever seen in a hostel, super sturdy, own curtain, socket, light and big locker with a padlock. Staff were so helpful and friendly.

It is a cheap, no-frills property and they describe themselves honestly online, so you know what you are letting yourself into. It is also away from the hustle and bustle which means you get a lot of quiet. Having said that, the thriving night-life is just a 15 mins ride away, so you can always get there if the quiet doesn't appeal to you.

Nice little hostel with really clean hot showers. 4 bed female dorm is really small, more like an oversized closet with two sets of bunks so as long as your room mates don't have a lot of stuff like mine did it's fine.
