So noisy that the room was shaking you won't sleep unless you can get your hands on some strong tranquilizers. Great location for going out and very clean

Right on the Main Street where all the clubs and bars are. A bit hard to find at first. Close to all nightlife and the beach. Nice common area and nice dorms! Bathroom and showers are great! You're probably gonna need earplugs if you wanna fall asleep! Really liked this hostel, would stay again!

Great hostel, clean, comfort and nice, the only minus thing is this hostel located in the heart of crowd, so until 5 o'clock still can hear the music from discotheque, but that I already know and prepared for that anything else was great and nice, will recommend this hostel to friends

If you like going out and you don't Care about the Clubs under and next to the hostel (Walls are shaking the whole Night and you can hear the Music.) It feels like you have to sleep in a club. If you go to the bathroom early in the morning you can smell the puke. Some of the toilets didn't work. But they clean the hostel every day!

Right in the middle of everything! It is literally on the walking street of Patong. Phuket is amazing for party but if you want to do the main town and temples you'll be a bit far away. The hostel is very well kept an has really good facilities and its so cheap! Not very sociable a bit hard to make friends.

Perfect location if you plan to party hard :) Do not plan on much sleeping, as the clubs are open till about 5am. Really clean, friendly staff (with surprisingly poor english thou). Simple rooms, but clean and tidy. Lots of showers and toilets, good if you are there in peak season, as we were there in the low season, and it was really empty :) good internet! I definitely recommend it!!!

location is excellent for bars etc but it that's not your thing don't stay here without valium because at night the music is so loud. common area is really nice and chilled and the whole hostel is very clean.

Don't stay here if you want a good nights sleep. Located in crazy Bangla Road, right next to one of the biggest nightclubs, open every night until 5 AM. Walls and beds are shaking. The top bed is very unstable and squeaky, and without a fence, and the person who slept there before us fell out. We therefore slept in the same bed although we paid for two. Rude and unhelpful staff. Probably great if all you want to do is get insanely drunk and stay up all night.

If you are looking for party, then this is the right place to stay. The hostel is right next to a big night club: the beds are shaking all night (not kidding!) and the music is extremely loud (non-stop until 6am) - even with earplugs. The room was clean, had an AC, the beds were VERY unstable. The bathroom was really ok, but later at night and in the morning really dirty. WiFi sucked!!! All in all: If you are looking for a peaceful and calm place, you better go to Kata Beach. We loved it!

Reminds me a little like a school camp. But a good clean hostel. The staff are a bit rude though

only stayed one night and found it can be abit noisy at night as it is sutuated right in the heard of bangla road! pretty sure its surrounded by a few nig nightclubs which means music can be heard from the rooms. so its not ideal if your wanting a quiet night in. otherwise it seems like a pretty buzzing place. well located not far from the beach, cool common areas and rooms are nice and clean.

The hostel is right on Bangla street with a lot of bars and street food. it nears the beach too, just 10' walking. it can be very noisy at night with all the music from bars. if you have problem sleeping with loud noise, try other hostel. Some staff are friendly, some are not.

It could be better If the lockers would be in the dorm And not out side next to the reception.

on bangla road, this is a party hostel. most people there to party, common room is for hungover people, music from the clubs below until 4am... but this is no problem if you are there to drink and dance too. very clean! good a/c.

Pros: right on Bangla Rd. and a few minutes away from Patong Beach, bar and common area for meeting other travelers, small lockers and good facilities. Cons: it is literally above a nightclub that shakes the floor of the back of the hostel with its music - great if you're looking to party until 6am (like most people) but I'd look elsewhere if not! Wifi works great in common area but not great in the rooms.

For the location which is right in the heart of all the madness in Patong Beach, it's a great bang for your buck. The only thing that I disliked was having to rent towels.

Great place if you're looking to party! Easy to meet other travelers and located in the heart of Bangla Rd. Although, right above a night club so if you're trying to sleep before 6am then you better be really tired or really drunk! Lol

Hostel is right in the thick of the noise of Bangla Road. Perfect if you're there to go wild, a complete nightmare if you're not. Dorms are very basic with really flimsy bunks and the noise from the neighbouring clubs is unbelievable. Bathroom and shower facilities are great and there's a good tv area with comfy bean bags if you want to chill.
