Not bad, trouble finding.
Location is wrong on map. There's a newer hotel around the corner located at the back of a clothing/souvenir shop. Beds were okay, basic hostel. Decent value

My stay was great! The location in Old Town is perfect, just difficult to find when I arrived at night because of small signage. The owner recommends good and affordable tours.

Simple but good.
Simplicity, quietness, cleanliness.
Very sparsely furnished but for below 10SGD it was totally worth it. Accommodating staff and very comfortable bedding. The only drawback would be that the location is smack in the middle of run-down Phuket Old Town, making it extremely inconvenient and inaccessible. Perfect for one night stopovers on the way to Phi Phi.

stay in phuket town if you dont like the partying/beach vibe in patong... (the town is quite boring). gotum hostel is a nice quaint hostel with a restaurant downstairs that serves good food. I stayed in bangla road for 3 nights and just booked a day at Gotum so that i can leave my luggage there to explore the old town and trickeye museum. it is near the bus station that goes to the airport so you can catch the last ride around 630pm. the bed looks comfortable and the airconditioning is ok.

Great location in old town. Helpful staff. Clean and quiet because hardly any backpackers in old town. Near a jazz club so worth going there for a drink.
