Great place to stay for party people. Located on the party street and close to the beach, if you have party till 5 a.m. you will have no problem with music. As normally can hear pretty loud music till 5 am every night. Very clean place, cold air con, great staff and backpackers.

Unfortunately my stay at Kool Hostel was very disappointing. Although the hostel is located in the centre of the main street, it is extremely noisy from the surrounding bars, which leaves an altogether unpleasant feel. On top of that, there are only small lockers available and as a result I had a baseball cap stolen from where I had to leave it in the room. Fortunately that appears to be all that was taken. The entrance and lobby to the hostel is absolutely filthy and I regretted staying there.

Exactly what you want if you want to have a good time in Phuket. Location right on the busiest road.

I loved this hostel!!! Right on Bangla Rd, but you do not here the street/party noise. Lots of solo travellers, so making friends easy. Rum

Excellent place to meet backpackers. Right on the main road but located upstairs in a mall so the rooms are very quiet. Internet is fast, staff friendly and it has small lockers for your main belongings. They offer cheaper transfers to the pier. They make you take your shoes off to walk around the property which I find unclean. other than that, I would stay there again.

If you are looking for party the hostel is really well located, in the middle of the main party street. Despiste this, it's not noisy and it's possible to sleep perfectly and relax at the common room puffs watching a movie. The rooms don't have windows, and it can be good or can be bad, depends on you. Wifi not good inside the room and it can get cold with the ac on and the small blanket they give. It's not bad, but you can find better places cheaper. The best attractive is the location.

This hostel is good for meeting people an going out to have a good time, but if you're after a quiet nights sleep this is not the best place to be! Definitely recommend staying here!

Bathrooms and rooms were regularly cleaned. The lobby is very comfortable. You could just lay down there with there bean bags to eat/sleep/talk to strangers/watch a movie/surf the net or whatever. All of the parameters were excellent except for security because the atmosphere could go crazy, meaning drunk people could be banging at your door for mistake. But I don't mind that because I also drink too much some times. HEHE

A chilled clean hostel. Most people hang out there before going out so easy to meet people. Rum is an awesome guy wand hangs out in the evening. No windows in rooms so can be disorientating at first wake. It's on the main party street but you don't get the noise...just a little base. Definitely recommend this place but know what you're in for in Patong before arriving!

I like the place, it was clean and just right next to the Beach. The only I am not so happy about was the bed, It was nice and everything, but really movable, so every move make a lot of noise.

Very friendly staff, always willing to help, I have to thank them for all the tips and help I got! Very clean hostel, no shoes inside! A bit hard to find, when you walk down Bangla Road, right in front of the Tiger Bar you'll see a very tiny alley with a supermarket at the end. Go it there and you'll see the signs.

This was such a clean hostel! The facilities were great! The staff was 50/50, they were all very nice, but a couple of the workers could not speak any english! Which caused a few issues. It is in a very party focused area, if that is what you are looking for. Very nice, clean, and right in the middle of everything.
