Can't really complain with this one. The hostel is only slightly dated to what the pics are like. But very clean and tidy. Mama is very helpful and friendly. 3 min walk from the strip. Everything on your doorstep. Beach is a little dirty. Great communial area to meet people and watch films

Was in an awesome location. Really busy. Loads of westerners and a great atmosphere. Mumma was crazy but loves everyone. Great place if you want to party and make friends. I'd stay again!!

The rules in the hostel makes you feel like you are doing your military service. I think the owner and the management lacks the soul of hostel culture which decreases the quality of your experience. Management and the Phuket itself is not eager to help you if you don't follow their unlogical rules.

If you want to party and be close to the noisy nightlife, go here. Everything is close; beach, shops, clubs. If you want to have a good sleep, don't go here. Lot of drunk people that come back to the hostel at 4am. It you don't mind that and go out clubbing till late, this one is for you.

Great location next to the main road, very friendly staff, lots of people to meet and make friends with. A/C was strong when it was on. NO VISITORS ALLOWED (some guy tried to bring a girl back at 5am and was denied - their front desk is 24hrs).

i was picked up at the airport during rush hour and it took 2 hrs. to get to the hostel! it is a 30 second walk to the beach and is on the main road near all bars which can make for noise late at night. it was nice to have the option to watch movies. Art was the best thing about this hostel. His english is awesome, he is funny, engaging and knowledgable. unfortunately he does not get the respect he deserves. mama is ok to talk to, but will nag you about your every move.

Great hostel! Perfectly situated around the corner from bangla rd. Everything within walking distance, and great people, with great social environment! No microwave and pretty strict on common room rules, other than that definitely worth the stay!!

Staff was amazing, the woman that runs the hostel, we called her "mama", was a lovely woman who helped us out in every way possible. Atmosphere was great, you can meet great people that also staying here, it's the classic "backpacker hostel", which seem pretty hard to find now a days. A very "bohemian" feel. Make sure to always take off your shoes or you might face a friendly scolding from Mama! Only a block a way from Bangla road, and right on the beach.

Super close to Bangla Road and the beach. That means it can be noisy at night. A bit hard to find as it's down a hallway next to a massage parlor, but there's a guy who stands on the sidewalk and directs folks (for fun?). Good common area to hang out in. Mama is nice and helpful, just make sure to stay on her good side! Not the nicest hostel I've stayed in (the bunk beds swayed a bit too much for my comfort), but had a comfortable feeling. They look after all of their guests.

In general, this is a good hostel. Clean, safe, organized, good beds and ar conditioning in the bedrooms (great!). The wifi is bad and doesn't work in the bedrooms. It's expensive if you book online. I paid 450 baht/night in 10 bed dorm. Very expensive if you consider that they usually charge 350 for the same room, if just go there and not book online. But you just discover that, when you already paid. That's really not fair, but...

Was happy to land here when my other hostel plans fell through. Right by the beach. Good internet. Good common space. Bookings available for all the nearby tourist stuff. Transfers with ferry to phi phi (don't need a cab). Nice enough rooms and beds. Mama (owner and manager is quite the character and take care of you.

A great place, Mama is keeping a good atmosphere and is eager to make you feel at home. The place is clean and the staff friendly. Good AC in rooms. Good social area with movies and chill place. Close to everything. I can recommend this place (if you want to see touristic Patong and crazy Bangalore street).

Great location with basic but clean facilities. Good cable TV and movie election in common area for days spent hungover after 'exploring' Patong. Kind of expensive for Thailand - but Patong's a tourist 'hotspot' so not entirely surprising.

The hostel is facing the patong beach and just at the end of the central street. Every thing is very convenient and I would recommend you to stay here.

This hostel is clean and the staff is attentive. The atmosphere is great as well. However, there are a few issues. One being they don't have any bed covers. The give you like a 1x2m super thin sheet as a blanket, that is all. Also, 'Mama' doesn't allow others to bring in drinks and insists you buy her overpriced beer there rather than going right outside and paying less on the street.

I only stayed here for one night got in at around 2am met a group of people outside had a few drinks and headed straight out with them! Rooms were good I got upgraded to a 3 man dorm for some reason on arrival free of charge which is a bonus. The hotel books really cheap trips to phi phi which is the main reason I came to Patong anyway it was 300 baht for taxi from the hostel to the ferry and the ferry across!
