Right by Bangla road and the beach so location is great! Momma is fun but don't even bother bringing your own drinks in, she'll throw them out! Showers are fine as are the beds. Small common area where people can drink or watch DVDs not both as its too small. Air con is good.


Super location, very nice staff and the common room is so nice with all the people hanging out and watching movies. Definitely recommend this hostel!


I loved Patong Backpacker Hostel. This is a great option for anyone spending time in Patong. The location is great, and there is an AMAZING hang out area in the front of the hostel where everyone chills and hangs out. I met some of the coolest people of my life in this hostel and it's because we were all hanging out in the open area by reception. The showers are decently clean and the bunks are normal. Overall this hostel has a great layout and it's close to everything!


Awesome place to stay! Great location and great people. All super friendly and ended up staying a few more nights because no one wanted to leave! Staff are friendly and helpful, mama is everyone's favourite!


Good hostel; great location; I actually found it quiet, despite the warning from the other reviews (maybe a seasonal thing?). Mama is great, but overrated - but it give people something to talk about! Also a very social hostel - good space where people can hang out and meet each other.


Location is perfect, even if you have to get offered massages on the walk down the little alleyway to get to the entrance of the hostel. The dorm was clean and the a/c did the job. Staff helped us book tickets to the airport so that was good of them. Nothing too negative to report 👍🏼


The staff were absolutely amazing! They were very friendly and made it feel like a home away from home. All staff, especially Mama are so caring and accommodating. Our stay here could not have been any better!

I would definitely recommend staying here. Besides being above a shop, the hostel itself isn't too bad and the location is fantastic, right on Patong Beach and not even a 2 minute walk from Bangla Road. The social area is very good, and 'Mama' likes to get herself involved with the backpackers...she is hilarious! Get used to hearing 'one million baht' for anything that you request!! :)

Very clean... I'll stay here again Txh.. Mama


I was very surprised by this place! Perfect location!! Almost next to the beach and very close to party street. They let you drink your own alcohol in the common area which was great!! Not many places in Thailand let you do that. Very friendly staff. Definitely recommend!


Right near the centre of Patong near Bangla Road. Great social area for chilling with some beers and meeting people. Mama, who runs the place, is always friendly and welcoming to everyone.


excellent hostel very close to the beach and half block from Bangla street


Great place to stay mama is great and helps with everything! Great atmosphere to meet people of your a solo traveler or in a group- very social place. This is a good hostel for money and great to stay . If your after a great social place stay here. There is another hostel next door but it's not social at all. So stay here!!


Mama is amazing. Though she's a bit strict with outside alcohol! The aircon made me a bit sick but I could have turned the temperature up, so it's my own fault really. Really good vibe with other guests.


mama treat us very well! she didnt charge us even we requested to change a room with bathroom. 3 of us went to dive, actually a well sleep is important. however there's a group of "youngster" keep yelling,shouting and partying whole day and night till 2am!! seriously!!? please respect and consider in other travellers especially at a warmly and comfortable hostel. luckily mama rescue us by chasing them out fr their room. mama is our HERO!!!! we must go back for mama and the no.6 thai restaurant!!


Very close to the beach and bangla road, which was great for going out. They keep the place very clean. I tried to ask the girl at the front desk for recommendations but didn't get the best feedback. The room was a decent size (4 bunk on main floor) and the common area was ok. Only lockers are small ones next to front desk. Their is almost always someone there but the doors stay open at night and there are no locks on the room. Mama is a character just like everyone says, no problems there.


Pretty boring hostel. Not very social and both nights I was there everyone sat around watching movies when Bangla road is just around the corner.


Patong Backpackers was right next to Bangla road, the prime party location for Patong. It was also right next to the beach. During the day, the guests mostly hang out in the living room, working off hangovers and enjoying the AC. But everyone springs to life at night. I met a Polish guy and an Italian guy that night and went out on the town together. True backpacker atmosphere, secure location, and cheapest in Patong. Excellent way to experience Patong.


Didn't end up staying here, but only heard good things about it.


Love this place! Stay here every time I pass through Patong and its a brilliant hostel with a cool common room area to chill and meet fun people. They sell beer cheap in the evenings so there's usually a group of people sitting around chilling and making new friends. And the owner, mama, is brilliant and will make you feel like family! Will definitely stay again.
