It's in downtown far away from Phuket nightlife area .So good for person who wants to spend time cool without any night parties. They have rooms on 3 floors but bathroom is only on one floor common for all.Should not be like this. Staff very good however they can't communicate very well in English but try to help always. Breakfast was good however it was not free.

Dear Vinay Thank you for your stay with us ! We apologize for all inconvenience caused while you were staying, at that time you've actually booked in the dorm room but since we were doing bugs treatment in the dorm room we're happy to upgrade you to the private room on 3rd floor our shared bathroom is only on the 2nd floor and that room you stayed was the only private room without bathroom on 3rd floor since we are maintaining the room that s the best solution that time pls accept our appolgies

We stayed in a private room and although they are a little tiny, they are very nice. Cozy might be a good word for them. The staff was very friendly and helpful (with recommendations and answering questions). The cafe downstairs is a nice touch and a good place to grab breakfast if you're having a lazy morning. Really great, quiet place to stay in Old Town, Phuket. Right next to a great massage parlour too (which had some of the cheapest prices we saw anywhere in Thailand). Enjoy!


After watching some films on the sofa in the communal area we soon found this hostel has a huge bedbug problem. They were on the sofa, in our beds, climbing up the walls and scurrying along the bed frames. We had to sleep downstairs in reception in an upright chair because there was no one to speak to at reception to move rooms/hostel. We got our money back but the staff were totally unapologetic and unsympathetic, and actually seemed to know about the problem already. Highly distressing stay.

Please be informed that we are taking this problem very serious especially in the room you stayed since we've found out weeks ago and we thought we got rid of them all. Now we got the pest control company back and carefully check all entire place. Again we are apologize if any of our staff made you feel uncomfortable about how they handling the situations. Best Regards


I would never choose to stay in Phuket because of the other great options for islands, but if you have to, this is the best place to do it. I can't say enough about their facilities. Very clean, secure, modern, and friendly staff. The room are small, but are set up very cool. The price was right for me, and I wish that I could've has this type of hostel along the other stops on my trip. Stay here if you're in Phuket, you won't regret it.


Amazing place !! nice and clean rooms, very friendly and helpful staff ! they helped us with our luggage that got lost during our flight and told us all the nice places that we had to visit in phuket :) very tasty homemade brownies and banana cake, too! :) highly recommend anyone to stay here, it was a great stay! thank you!! :)

Staff was super sweet and helpful, also the cafe downstairs was very nice. I did not love the neighborhood, but there is a very nice grocery store down the street, and it is walking distance to the Phuket Town Old bus terminal (as well as Phuket Old Town). Beds and bathrooms were very clean, wifi was strong, lockers were spacious!


We got a room for 4 people without a window.. Staff was not helpful at all (maybe because we arrived in the night ) , they actually slept (or even lived ) in the common area what was a little bit strange.. you couldnt use the space . But - its clean and well located (just a few mins by taxi from the pier ), so its a good place 'to wait for the ferry' .


great hostel, best we've stayed at. clean, very friendly staff. would highly recommend. we ended up staying one night and have booked a second for later in the week! can't commend high enough.


2W is a comfortable little place. It's great for just a couple of nights in Phuket, being directly in the city centre. The staff are semi helpful but they can't answer every question. The rooms I stayed in were wonderful, spent some time watching KBS (Korean Broadcasting Service). Overall its quite a chill and relaxing little place.


This hostel was great if you're planning on getting the ferry the next day to Phi Phi, I wouldn't recommend staying here more than one night, not a lot going on but clean, friendly hostel in an average location!


The cute boutique cafe and hostel had a chic and happy vibe to it. Although the room didn't lock making it feel slightly unsafe to leave, the rooms were well equipped with enough space for 4 huge backpacks. The water was turned off at night however so wanting to go for a wee in the night was not possible. The staff were really friendly and the food was cheap.

Comfy, cozy place. We were there for only 6h, but Loved the place.


Great place .. i like how they utilize the space .. However, I think they should create some activities at least during the weekenda to crete a better atmosphere ...


The Hostel itself was great! Very Clean and Modern, would definitely go back just wish it was in a better location in Phuket!


Really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The rooms are small but cozy with a few lockers inside, others in the hallway. Plenty of toilets and showers. It's so clean that it aways smells like the cleaning lady just finished. Staff is very welcoming and helpful with booking tours for the islands and helping with directions. Location is awesome, a 5 minute walk to Old Town and close to restaurants, cafes and shopping.


The mixed dorm was fantastic. I randamly choose this hostel a day before without checking the reviews (although I suggest everyone to check the review). Very clean room. Thanks for having me 2W Cafe and Hostel.


this hostel is really great with friendly staff. for the past two weeks we havebeen travelling in thailand and from all the places we stayed at this became our favorite. i would rwcommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice and clean place for a low budget price range. and the coffee is amazing.

This hostel has a great location, but due to the lack of people staying there when I was there I didn't meet many people and felt it was lacking in atmosphere. Other than that it is very clean, safe and the staff are very helpful.


This was a really cute little hostel with great value for money. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.
