A fantastic hostel at kata beach that's away from the hustle of patong but full of charm and lovely people. I met loads of people whilst staying there in my dorm and in the awesome common area which has a huge selection of movies to choose from. It's not too far from the beach and got some good surf whilst staying there. There is lots to do aswell, visit phi phi, snorkeling and patong. Will definitely be coming back!

Fantastic hostel. The beds are super comfy. The AC is great. There's plenty of bathrooms and toilets. The social area is fantastic. Loads of couches and bean bags. Brilliant place to meet people. Fully equipped kitchen which definitely keeps costs down. Overall a fantastic hostel. Pity I didn't like Phuket itself. If it had of been somewhere like Bali or Koh Tao I'd have stayed forever.

This is a great hostel with good location. It is new and looks good with all little details. Common area look like it should in hostel, very inviting. Staff wasn't too into serving you. They did what they had to, but no way they would go with extra mile for you. Too busy with their games. And even there is bars around, this place was fairly quite.

The security is the main issue here. While I was there three people had things go missing, and one person was stolen from while he was in the common room by a local. The staff doesn't man the desk full time, and neither the front nor the mixed dorm room doors were ever locked. Additionally, the lockers weren't actual lockers. They were either broken, or the other keys opened the lockers. The pool is nice, and the tv room is cool, but the staff never changed the sheets which get really sandy.

This hostel was probably the best we stayed at in Thailand. The atmosphere was amazing, location was super close to Kata beach and the hostel itself was really nice. Minor points off for not having hot water in the shower but that's really something you can deal with in a country this hot.

The showers are the best. Staff doesn't seem to think those inside the hostel are a security risk. In the dorm, your key opens every locker, which defeats the point of locking your valuables. FIN staff also seem to have some arrangement with a local tourism kiosk and I was told this was the only place to book a minibus to the airport. The kiosk was empty most of the day and by the time I got ahold of someone there were no buses available and was told I could have booked with anyone in town.

Security was terrible. While i stayed a girl was indecently harrassed by a tuktuk driver that came in to her dorm. We think he was a friend of the owner or something. Also...lockers in the dorms... kick them lightly and they fall apart. TERRIBLE security. On the bright side, atmosphere was good, commons area chill, poolside small but chill and privates are nice but overpriced. Improve the security and i would certainly stay again.

The best hostel I have ever stayed at. A nice pool on the roof, big rain showers, a great common room with numerous dvd's and all... I wish all hostel were like this.

Fin hostel is a brilliant place to stay from late check in, there are a team of cleaners for the living rooms and bathrooms daily. The big screen for movie showings is great to just sit in and chill. The pool is also a nice area for a lazy day. All facilities modern and up to date.

The best hostel I ever stayed in so far. It's very clean, very nice and modern. There are quite a selection of movies on the shelve and you can watch it on a projector ! There is a fridge and kitchen. Good location with 10 mins walk to Kata beach and if you are on a budget 7-11 is close to you for food and drinks.

Really friendly and sociable. Would definitely recommend. The AC in the rooms was also really good.

The hostel is a great choice if you are a backpacker. Just one (big) problem, security. All the lockers use the same key, so it defeats the purpose of having a personal locker to keep your valuables safe. I strongly recommend this to be changed. Nevertheless, great common room where you can watch movies. The atmosphere in the Hostel is also very good!

Possibly the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Better than a lot of hotels I've also stayed at. Fantastic value for money.

would've liked to get information from the front desk about things to do/where to go, general tips and advice, but they didn't seem that willing to help. We figured it out on our own

I had a great time at fin - the common room area is a great social space, the bathrooms and toilets are very clean and spacious, bedrooms with AC, good kitchen facilities which makes it easy to cook if you don't want to eat out, a 5 minute walk from the beach, next door to some nice restaurants, friendly staff. I extended my stay by 5 nights! It's a really great place to meet other backpackers which is ideal as I was travelling solo, and I would highly recommend this hostel.
