      Great Value, Good Dorm!”

      Clean, friendly staff, quiet location close to all the hotspots

      The Kata Beach Homestay is in the upstairs rooms of a shop for lotions and herbal beauty products, so don’t be surprised when looking actual hostel entrance. Despite the unusual set-up, Kata Beach Hostel is a great place to stay in! The owners are super friendly and very helpful and the dorm beds are quite comfortable. The top bunk beds have softer mattresses than the lower bunk beds, so they cater to both sleeping preferences. The aircon is pretty good and the shower facilities are fine too. Also, there is a nice lounging area with free tea, coffee, and cookies for the guests on the first floor. There is also a microwave and a toaster you can use and the dorm has a fridge to put your stuff in, too. The internet connection is pretty good there, in the dorm itself you might not receive as much wifi, but that did not bother us. A 7Eleven and ATM machines are just a few feet away, and the main street with all the bars and restaurants only a few minutes of walking. That way, it is pretty quiet in the hostel, yet you are still close to the nightlife activities. The beach is about 15 minutes (walking) away. Met some wonderful people in the dorm, too! I would definitely come back to this place! Great value for a good price.

      Hospitality, Great Service, Comfort

      We had a very hard time deciding where to stay for our holiday in Phuket and after reading many positive reviews, Kata Homestay seemed like an appropriate choice. Our experience definitely lived up to the great reviews we read and we are very glad we chose this place to stay. Upon arrival, the staff were super friendly and accommodating. Our room wasn't ready as we arrived too early, and the homeowner looked after our bags and made us feel at home. Throughout our stay the staff provided amazing service from booking tours to suggesting places to eat. Along with the great service, the room was really comfortable, clean and had a great air-con, mosquito net and balcony. This place is definitely worth your money and we were very happy. We wanted to write this as we believe it deserves a positive review. If you stay here you definitely won't be disapointed.

Room was lovely and clean. A/C and wifi both worked great. It wasn't far from the beach and had beautiful Thai food located just down the road. Overall it was an excellent stay.

      The homestay is close to everything and 20minutes from the beach. It is very clean, very organized and staff is incredibly friendly. They have a common room with a small kitchenette and tea and coffee available all day. The beds a comfy, the rooms nice and overall atmosphere great. For the price, it is really good quality. I would recommend it to any solo traveller or small groups.

      staff, location, price

      We has a fantastic stay here. The homestay is a very intimate setting (only 6 rooms I think) so the staff are very attentive to your needs as they don't have lots of guests to look after. They offer excellent prices for their rooms and discounts on taxis to the airport. We had a really nice time here. The room was cleaned everyday, the internet was good, fantastic location (not too far away from everything, but still nice and quiet). When we got there we were upgraded to a private bathroom room which was great as well :) We were so happy with our stay :) Thank you!

      Staffs here are so nice. Staying here is ok for me. Luckily, i have nice roommates. We have locker, fridge in our floor. I also love to chill out at the roof top. On the second floor, it's kind of a common room. You can serve yourself a cup of coffee or some snacks anytime. There's a microwave too. For me, here is not the best. But compare with what you pay and expectation of dorm/hostel-like, i recommend this one! I will definitely stay here again for my next visit at Kata beach.

      The room was comfortable and clean and located close to restaurants and walking distance to the beach. The owner and her husband are lovely, kind people (he even drove me and my bag to another guesthouse as they were full for the rest of my stay in Phuket).

      I booked the room abt 1 month early, the price is a bit too high. Location is near to beach but the beach entrance is at the both ends of the road and the hotel is in the middle, so it takes quite a long walk to beach.

      If you want somewhere nice and clean and away from the party to chill quietly, this is the place!”

      This was the perfect place for me while I was sick. It was quiet, very clean, cool at night, and the staff were very lovely as they helped nurse me back to health. I was the only one in the dorm in the first night and then over the next couple nights new people checked in and i’m happy to say I made friends with some really lovely people over the 5 nights I was there.

      Wonderful people!”

      The most lovely and helpful staff. So kind. It's a little hard to find but it's above a health/natural products shop next to a bar with lots of straw and wood. Thanks for having us!

      Nice owner”

      Room was alright, a bit uncomfortable, hard bed and cold shower - but the owner is very nice. She even invited us to join her New Years party, location is on a side street and it’s not too loud at night. All in all = accommodation was alright
