Fantastic conveniently located hostel”
Although I had initially intended to stay for 2 nights at bgw, once I arrived and was welcomed by such wonderful and attentive staff and felt the warm and quaint atmosphere, I ended up extending my stay multiple times and even staying upon returning from other destinations. The dorm rooms have comfortable beds with privacy curtains and multiple PowerPoints which definitely comes in handy, the staff at bgw are fantastic there is no query too big or small and they are more than willing to help with any questions or advice. The location of the hostel is smack bang in the middle of wherever you want to be in Patong close to jungceylon, Bangla Road, the beach and pretty much Central to everything. One downside is that it is not permitted for you to bring your own alcohol into the premises which can become somewhat expensive especially if you drink like myself but I only have myself to blame for that hahaha. Fantastic hostel would recommend to all solo Travelers without hesitation.
Great location and friendly owner”
We stayed for one night. BGW is just a short walk to Jungceylon and Central Patong malls. The location is right in the middle of Patong action and nightlife. Owner Lester is a great host. We were allowed early check in. As vegetarians, Lester took the special effort to purchase fruits from Phuket Town for our breakfast. He even sat with us during breakfast and shared his experience. Thumbs up!
Had a fabulous stay @BGW, Patong ”
My time spent @BGW was great; when I first got there, I was warmly welcome and got offered a welcome drink. The check in/out procedures were simple and fast. The dorms and single rooms were clean, spacious, and comfy; the staff was super friendly; the F&B offered were yummy and decently priced; I met amazing people @BGW; I’ll book BGW again during my next visit!!!! 👍👍👍🤘🤘🤘
Room with a view”
Although it doesn’t say so in the name, this is a hostel. We had a private room on the top (5th) floor which is totally separate to the hostel part. It had an excellent view of the mountains surrounding Patong. The room was surprisingly clean and the bed comfortable, the only drawback is that there is no lift! The provided breakfast is also lacklustre but, given the nature and price of the accommodation, it wasn’t a huge disappointment. Overall, BGW was a pleasant respite after a long day.
That is one of the best hostel I've EVER been ! The crew is so kind and willing to help you at any time. Everything is really clean. I've been in a 5 beds shared room and a 10 beds shared room as well. Both were nice. Even in the large one, you feel great and thanks to the curtain between the different beds, you get a private feeling. Towel for free, breakfast (1x) if you stay at least 3 nights, water/tea/coffee for free. In the center of Phuket, close to anything you want and easy for shuttles to get you at the hostel if you plan to do some trips/diving/ ... Also, there is a lovely acoustic guitar in the common area, free to use. That is awesome, usually if any it's bad. I was so happy ahah :) Also when you get there, you'll try a Butterfly tea... You'll see, that's loooovely. Note: if you are willing to dive, Aussie Divers is the absolute best one. I've been there for 1 week, diving everyday mainly with AD but also with All4Diving one day. NO question: AD is THE best :) THANKS!
Good location, nice staff, clean, helpful, can’t ask for more with this rate.”
The owner Lin is very helper & friendly. I told him someone dirty the toilet, with lots of sand (sometimes some travellers just don’t respect others), Lin takes action & clean it up immediately. Thumbs up! My first trip as a solo back packer, it’s a good experience here even I had been to Phuket many times & stay different 3-5 hotels before. Right opposite the hostel, there is a lady selling local home cooked food, give it a try, good price like 40baht only.
EVERYTHING WAS GREAT”
room is cleaned up everyday, location is near the bangla street and patong beach. Staff was very kind, they can speak english well.if i come to phuket again, i will stay at this hostel.
WONDERFUL STAFF AND GUESTS”
PRO: Convenient location, close to jungceylon, bangla road and you can be at the beach in less than 5 minutes by cutting through patong resort. Beds are comfortable, sheets are clean and smell lovely, THE STAFF ARE FANTASTIC... WILLING TO HELP WITH ANY ENQUIRY. Cheap Thai food restaurant right across the road that serves quality meals direct to the hostel. The only down side... for me at least add i enjoy both drinking and saving money is that outside alcohol is not permitted and the prices are quite lofty for what is available... but of that is the worst thing ... You guessed it this place is amazing
No regret to book”
I stay 1 night in dorm, the toilet clean and my bed is comfort. all falicity is complete like 1 socket,towel and a locker. Then I take walk in stay 2 night private room. it's so awesome, not noisy and clean. The hotel its so strategic because its middle in patong town. Walk around 400 meter to Bangla Road, walk through Bangla Road you can go to the beach or waiting bus if you want to go other destiny. Near the hotel you can easy to find tourism agent, lots shop and many more. The owner hotel and their staff's so helping and kind
Perfect Location ”
Sea Horse is located just around the corner of main road with eateries, shops and the big Jungceylon shopping center. Patong beach and Patong Beach are ess than 10 minutes walk. Excellent food options nearby. Rooms are clean. Staff cooperating. I liked spacious toilets.
Good service and quality hotel with nice employees ”
Very nearby Patong beach and the shopping area.It is good because they provide a security box in the private room and there are costy laundry shops and Thai restaurant across the hotel. Oh don’t forget to try their special drink. It is amazing ~
The staff are very nice ”
It's not about i am from china so i give the good views, It was very quiet for a place in phuket to get rest from party to be honest, and stuffs are all very friendly, they make their guests relaxing there also its quite clean also It's easy to get things around,i will go back to saty agian if i come to party agian, Especially after the party , It's a place to get recharge for me :)
Location of the hostel was perfect, few minutes from the nightlife of phuket and since its located in city centre, transport was not a problem. The only problem was the dorm, only got 1 washroom. You can use the washroom on the ground floor though for alternative.
Good and cheap stay”
Owner is a nice Taiwanese Guy called Leister. He is trying to get a lot of input and criticism of the guests and is willing to improve that place. Aon the receptionist is a nice and charming, she helped me a lot while staying there. It’s pretty chill there, but you can still meet people and go party with them, if you want to (just 3 Minute walk). Overall I had a good and relaxing time there and could also focus on my work. Pro‘s: Owner & staff Location Price Spacious rooms, bunk beds with curtains, nice shower and washing rooms Common area Con‘s No AC in Lobby Light (could be brighter, colorful & shining, rooms to dark) Towel 20 baht
Short but sweet”
We only stayed 1 night to extend our stay in patong, and seahorse was one of the cheapest options. Great room, cold aircon, lots of space and the friendliest staff. It was a real pleasure to stay here and will be our number one choice for when we return.
Very good location ”
it was our last night in phuket, the hotel has a great location, but no escalator, I was in the 4th floor with baggage ...
Excellent location and good value for Money! ”
Located one minute walk to main shopping street, restaurants and 5 minutes to Soi Bangla. Patong beach also 10 min away by walk. Rooms are well maintained. cleaned daily. Toilets have American showers and nicely designed.
Excellent Value, Fun Scene for Millenial Set”
I was greeted by Bright, who went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. I was given assistance in renting a motorbike, and constantly checked up on to make sure everything was okay. I had arrived a day late for my reservation and due to that my reservation had been canceled, but the manager went ahead and upgraded me to a private room for the duration of my stay as a recovery. The hostel is nearby all the fun in Patong, but not so close as to be loud at night. I would recommend to the owners to improve the amenities as the location is very good.
Nice place to stay in Phuket”
The location is strategic. It is near to Jungceylon mall and Patong beach. Also the staffs are friendly and the price is affordable.
Nice place, good vibe”
We had a private room, it was a little dated and run down but otherwise good. The staff were excellent, the vibe in the common area was good and the location was perfect to see around Patong.
