We just spent one night there during vegetarian festival. The owner was super helpful, even before our arrival we didn't have to wait long for his replies to all our questions and concerns. The room had no window, it was clean, but it smelt a bit weird tough. The hostel also offers exchange services with a decent rate.

Then we asked the owner about booking the Simon star show and he called the show and got the info for us and booked the show for us for 600 baht when the show rate was 900 baht. Then we asked the owner about... More

Evening staff have very little English but everything else was perfect! Gotum himself is so friendly and so helpful! Beautiful town and very cheap buses to chalong bay and patong beach! Loved every minute of it 😊

Very helpful and friendly staff. Great location if you're staying in Phuket town. The Sunday night market is right outside the front of the hostel. The rooms are clean and air con works well. Good wifi too.

This hostel was a great experience. The location is central for phuket town. The price was reasonable (i believe 280 baht). The staff was very friendly, and they have a computer for public use. It is attached to a restaurant with a nice public area. when I went it was very quiet, I guess it was off season. The rooms... More

Hard to find, but once we did the room was perfect for what we needed. We ended up having a quad to ourselves with free towels and our own toilet and shower.
