        Attention to detail, new and comfortable, friendly staff, great management - and a super cute cat!

        We stayed for 5 nights at Ai Phuket. The goodness starts before you check in really - a great Facebook page, emails answered quickly and friendly staff when you call. There are so many things you'll appreciate at Ai Phuket, thoughtful details that make your stay so much nicer, but the beds might be the clincher. And the cat You'll leave happy. We're planning our next stay there as soon as possible. Thank you lovely Ai Phuket!

There's a nice quiet garden area, free Nescafe and tea, and a shared refrigerator. We rented the nicest motorbikes we have found in all of Thailand from them too at a fair price (good brakes, mirrors, start reliably). Would recommend to a friend!

        Comfortable Bed & Helpful Staff”

        Great location, you can go to the old town by walking. You can also rent a bicycle from the hostel to go to farther places. The bed was comfortable, I slept very well. The staff was helpful. I had to get to the airport at 6 am, but the earliest shuttle bus from town departs from 6, so that’s not an option. I didn’t want to take a taxi since it costs 800 bahts. Thanks to the receptionist girl at night, she managed to find a minivan that departed from 5 am which only cost me 300 bahts .
