Decent place, great for price. Near the beach...I don't understand why anyone would stay in Phuket town over Patong/Karon/Kata


Close to the beach. Nice helpful staff. Clean and comfortable.

Nice hostel and close to the beach located. The stuff is friendly and the atmosphere is excellent. They could give me a hand with all questions I had. The breakfast and food can be recommended.


Read a review from a few months ago saying there was a bad smell and the hostel reply was it will be fixed soon so i thought nothing of it. But as soon as you get to the dorm you notice even with the window open. When you close the window for mosquitos the smell is almost unbearable. Everything else was as expected from a budget hostel. Low season so i assume that, and the smell was why i had the dorm to myself so no atmosphere.

Sorry about that. We did have the dorm bathrooms fixed but unfortunately during the first major rains of the season the problem came back, and this coincided with this guests visit. This was a problem throughout the area at that time, by the way, not just us. We will be closing the dorm at the end of this week for a month to make improvements. Hopefully we'll have a better atmosphere again when the dorm reopens in October. Private rooms will still be available at this time.


Other than hotels, Pineapple was my most enjoyable stay during my three week trip to Thailand. Air conditioning worked perfectly and you weren't forced to turn it off when you left the room. Staff were super nice and helpful (the man has a little trouble with English, but the lady easily translated for him). Only about a 4 minute walk from the beach on a public, safe street. Breakfast was cheap and good compared to the rest of the places that we stayed. Would definitely recommened Pineapple to p


This hostel doesn't look like much from the outside but its great on the inside. Spacious and the double room was very clean. For a private room with air con we thought it was great value and close to the beach. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.


I liked this hostel & for Karon Beach it is perfect. It's a 3 min walk to the beach & there are tons of restaurants, shops & bars nearby. The lady who owns/works there is super nice & speaks English well! She's very helpful & was very welcoming for our 1st day in Thailand. There's a safe in the room & the cleaning lady did an exceptionally good job! There isn't a great area to meet people in the hostel (just go to the beach!); A/C unit didn't really work even after cleaning it (got a bit hot).
