Great hospitality

Nice hostel! Got serious bedbug rash after staying. Could have been the beds but they were very clean. It was most likely due to the sofa downstairs by the TV room. Very old and needs to be thrown away as it gave 3 people serious bedbug rashes.

Really nice and clean hostel. Staff was friendly and answered all of our questions. A really clean hostel! They have a bar/restaurant with pool table and games downstairs, not a lot of people down there when we visited though, but still met some nice people! Only con is that the air conditioning is only on from around 10pm to around 10am, but you shouldn't be spending the whole day in the hostel anyway ;-)

Great location. Local busses to the beaches leaves right next to the hostel. All though they had some problems with bed bugs. When I was leaving they cleared all the rooms to clean them.

Staff and location are the best. But if you are a light sleeper look for another place.

The staff were amazing! They would hang out with all the backpackers at their bar/lobby while we drank beers. Very friendly!

The lockers under the beds are awesome and the air conditioning is fantastic. And the rooms and bathrooms are cleaned every day so that's a huge bonus.

Staff is great fun, love a hostel with a good bar & comfy communal area such as this one. Rooms are basic but comfortable, no complaints there as it is a hostel & great value for the night or two. Phuket town is incredibly quite, 711 right next door is nice but otherwise not too much going on although good for a nice quiet, quaint retreat for a night or 2.

Nice hostel for one or two nights max. Very centric(old town) also near the market. The only bad thing is that the rooms are just above the bar and they had the music very loud until 2 in the morning and we had to get up at 5 to catch flights.

Decent hostel with a good atmosphere and a social vibe. Close to the old town, but a bus ride away from Patong beach and the nightclubs.

Very cool happy place to arrive at after a long day of traveling. Staff are fun, Sia the barman will hit you up with some great shots and a pizza. Only spent one night, but would recommend this place.

Really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. We were staying in one of the private rooms, it came with a dvd player/TV and there was plenty of movies to choose from. Everything was reasonably tidy and the internet was decent.

The A/C didn't get turned on until late at night which was a problem. Other than that it was a good backpackers.

Perfect hostel. Good location, price, staff and shower. Breakfast is tasty but a little expensive. I reserved for 3 nights but ended up 5 nights there. Plus, I met some nice friends there and went to Phi Phi together.
