A clean hostel (cleaned daily) and most of the staff were very friendly. An awesome fruit market just around the corner and 7/11 just a couple of doors up the street. Comfortable couches to sit and watch the hundreds of dvds and Chang on tap to share around the pool table.. I cant fault this hostel if i had to maybe id like it closer to the beach but a 30 baht bus stop is just out the front to clear warm beaches! Charles Victoria, Australia
It is a really nice hostel but I would not recommend staying in Phuket town. Its nice that this hostel is located away from the touristy beaches but it also makes it a 30 minute bus ride (which stops running at 4pm) to any beach and a tuk tuk is extremely expensive. There is a small food street for thai breakfasts but everything around the hostel closes by 8pm. The staff was nice enough but does not speak English so they are unable to help with anything.
This hostel was wonderful. It had a really great atmosphere, the staff were helpful and the place was very clean and comfortable. It had a really great, fun vibe. The common spaces were great for meeting other travellers, having a drink or a delicious meal. I loved my stay here and highly recommend you do the same!
Overall a very nice stay. Hostel staff were very helpful and great atmosphere for meeting people. Showers could do with an update/repair on the first floor. Other than that I'd recommend the place. Thanks
