Room was clean. Bed was firm but comfy (most beds in Thailand are gonna be harder than American beds but you're in another country to experience their way of life so stop ccomplaining) staff was awesome!!! I collect bottle caps and they gave me ones from the bar. Very nice people, next time im in patong definitely staying here again.

It's a cool little hostel, not the biggest on Earth, and prepare to be walking up like 5-7 flights of stairs to your room. Don't know what else to say, it's definitely an okay place to chill out at.

There was a cockroach in one of the bathrooms. The light in the other bathroom had was broken. We were a group of 5 people and we booked one room of five beds, but they divided us in two rooms. They wouldn't make the effort to move us into a single room.

Great place! Walking distance from the beach and affordable price. Great staff, excellent dorms and all of that. Most of the affordable places in Phuket are guesthouses or such, so this offers you the hostel atmosphere, which is cool!

About a 15 min walk from the beach. I was on the 5th floor which was abit of pain not just taking luggage but also going out. Overall clean and cheap so can't really complain.

The staff was great and very friendly. The distinct Thai hospitality is very much present. This hostel is worth it and definitely worth booking in again and again!

Hostel is great, not right in the centre but means you're not in the noisiest part. About 5 mins walk to the beach. Staff really friendly - we forgot some of our clothes on the balcony when we left and they folded and packaged them up for us!! Great choice! Recommended!

Not a large amount of space to socilaise with others and further away from the main area. We moved to a hotel which only cost 2 pound more and was closer to the main bars and had more to do ! Staff were really nice and helpful and rooms were clean and spacious enough.

Amazing hostel located just a five minute walk from the beach, busy shops and Bangla rd. Such friendly and helpful staff! The rooms are spacious and very clean. Best shower I had during my whole trip! Pretty comfy beds also.
