I liked the service and the condition of the rooms. It pretty good for a backpacker hostel. The price is also okay, if you compare it with the rest in the region. The most fascinated I'm by Mama (the old lady behind the reception), the friendliest host I ever had, she knows all visitors by name and is a big...

This is lovely little backpacker hostel in a abit of a shi*thole (my opinion) prostitues line the streets, the prices are tourist prices so not the best place for a backpacker!! Anyway back to the hostel, the hostel is basic! The rooms have aircon and the beds are decent enough for a goodnights sleep. The chill out area is pretty...

The location of this hostel is excellent! One just crosses the street and reaches the beach. It's also 2 minutes away from the crazy party street.The nice and comfy hangout area is perfect for meeting people, especially if you're travelling solo. The dorms and bathrooms are clean. The staff doesn't speak very good English but they try to be helpful...

Stayed here for one night on the day we flew in, was just what we needed. The lady at the front desk was such a sweet heart and put a smile on our faces without even saying anything.

The location is strategic, but don't expect too much about the facilities. When I was there, the air condition in the room is doesn't work, not clean and need a reparation. The staff not really helpful, when I asked about a cab they don't really help much.

Good location, comfy clean beds, decent toilets, really helpful and friendly staff, good for the money.. the hallways are a bit run down and smelly, they need a clean up but apart from that it was worth the small amount you pay x

The place doesn't have much to offer but it's very well localized in the best part of Patong, near the beach and the street with all bars and nightclubs. It's difficult to locate the hostel so party attention to the signs in front of the stores.

We arrived with our booking already being completed (8 people) and the receptionist simply told us that the rooms weren't available. We asked to be compensated and he said he doesn't care if we leave.
