Good location in Phuket old town”

Stayed here for just a night before moving on the next morning and did the trick nicely. Handy to bus terminal 1-local and long distance minibuses which is about a 12min walk away. Staff friendly and helpful and showers and tea and coffee very handy. Cute cat as well. Unfortunately the aircon in the room was a little noisy and another guest was getting their pace/walk on in the middle of the night which made the floor shake and was noisy. Hard to prevent this from happening though.

Nice stay”

We enjoyed our stay at Ai Phuket. The staff were really friendly and helpful with booking ferries and giving advice on getting places. We stayed in a double room with private bathroom. The room was fine, clean but bed was a bit hard, nothing to complain about though. The bathroom in the room was quite grimy, mold in the shower and didn't smell the best, we might have been better saving the money and using the cummunal showers. The only real complaint is that the room wasn't cleaned in our 3 night stay, I don't mind in terms of the sheets etc but as you're expected to put all toilet roll in a waste bin it should have been emptied. The hostel was fairly busy and met a few other travellers during our stay, nice atmosphere but if you're looking for a party atmosphere then phuket Town is probably not the place to stay it's more nice bars and coffee shops although quiet.

Far from most things, good place to rest.”

I stayed here for 3 nights. It is very far from most attractions and transport is extremely expensive and difficult in Phuket. Lovely hosts. Nice air conditioning in the rooms. Not really a social atmosphere for solo travellers (I did lots of sleeping and TV watching).Plenty of places to chill outside of your room if you wanna relax or have some private time. Overall, I’d say skip Phuket all together and just spend your time on the nearby islands and in Krabi.
