Staff really great and friendly. Do not stay here if you want to sleep at any point before 4.30am. The bunks vibrate from the noise. AC doesn't work properly and room had no window so was boiling. Hostel is above a club - no exaggeration how unbearable the noise is ! Wouldn't stay again - shame because staff are really nice and location is very central.

This hostel has a perfect location if you want to enjoy going out in Patong. It's located right above a big club so don't expect to sleep before 2:00 am. Toilets have no toilet paper, but it's clean. Staff could be more friendly.

Really enjoyed my stay at kool back packers, you're literally staying on the main strip of night life and the hostel is so sociable. If you want to chill there's constant films playing in the common area which has loads of comfy bean bags. The wifi and air con are perfect and there's loads of powerful showers and toilets. Would stay again if returning to patong.

If you're looking to be in the center of everything this is the place. It is located above a night so it can be a little noisy depending where your room is located, the noise wasn't really a problem for me. Overall the staff was very welcoming and it's a great atmosphere to meet people if you're traveling solo!

No soap or shampoo in the bathrooms. Towels for rent. Rooms are very clean. Decent common area to meet people inside and outside. But above a club, it gets pretty noisy at night but if you can tolerate it when you sleep you'll be fine.

I loved the hostel with the exception of the disco noises at night. I knew what I was getting into so it was fine. The staff was great, I was in a 6 beds female dorm and the AC was not working, the location is great, and you can meet people easily. The hostel is very clean, and I loved it! It is in the middle of Bangla road on top of IlluZion night club hence the noises/EDM music at night. Lockers were provided by the check in desk and you need to have your own lock.

Good location. Bit of an odd hostel. Found damp on the sheets and it was soooooo loud but you have to deal with these things. Wouldn't stay again.

Great hostel. Nice rooms and there's a hall where you always meet other people. Very big and clean bathrooms. Only con (for some people): the hostel is placed directly above a nightclub, so it's quite hard to sleep before 3am. But that's shouldn't be a problem if you want to go party as well. All the clubs in patong are within 3 minutes walking from the hostel. Beach is 4 minutes walking. Best hostel I stayed in Asia so far.
