perfect for backpacker-!”

clean, center of patong, reasonable price

Kool Backpacker Hostel is perfect for backpackers. (first of all, I recommend not to go this hostel if you want to get relax, need to stay in quiet room and want to private space. pretty noisy) it was my first trip to Thailand alone. so I wanted to find a room which is located in very safe area and east to get beach and center of phuket. this hostel located on the Bangla rd so good for night life. also it takes just 5 minutes to get patong beach. i was very concerned about bedbugs. but this hostel was opened 4 months ago and all furniture conditions are very clean. (still it seems remodeling partly though.) Staffs are very kind and feel like friends. you can enjoy beer at the lobby and make friends too. but you can get all this advantages with very low price. i think i was lucky to meet such a nice staffs and newl opened hostel.

Cleanliness, Easy Access, Friendliness

I have always been skeptical about backpacker hostel especially interms of cleanliness. Have been to Patong many times and always come across Kool Backpackers signboard whenever I walk along Bangla Road so this time I decided to try it myself. Kool Backpackers was really Cool indeed! The location was centralised right in Bangla Road itself. Near to all the bars and pubs so no problem to get tuk tuk. Rooms are cleam and the bunk beds arent squeaky. Bathroom was huge so no problems about waiting for your turns. Living room is spacious and its come with full set of TV and dvd player for the guest to watch movies. Just remember to bring your own towel and padlock for your lockers. I will definitely return to stay in Kool whenever I travel alone as its a good place to meet up with people.

Best Location...”

best location (in the center of Bangla Road and closed to the beach, jungceylon mall),good value in money, large bathroom and common area

This was our first time travel to Phuket and short visit (only 2 days and 3 nights), so we (I and one friend) decide to choose this hostel becoz we just need a place to sleep and this hostel very closed to famous place in patong. We arrived at 10 pm and quite surprised becoz the taxi driver ask us to walk to the hostel becoz the taxi cant enter the closed crowded road (now We know that the famous Bangla,center of nightlife in patong). The Hostel is in the third floor, and when passed the stairs,its clean but the smell rather odd (probably from kitchen of the small bar & resto in the first floor). But the hostel itself very clean and have large common area (one area to watching tv and one area to drink and games). There was 2 person in the reseptionist when we confirm our booking, they are very friendly and one even accompany us to find our room.When we ask about very early check out, they confirm that the reseptionist is 24 hours. Our room is 6 bed dormitory for female only.The room is clean and air conditioning working good. And the best thing is we cant hear any noise since the hostel in the middle of bangla road, we can sleep very very well. I cant comment about the wifi coz we never used that ( we buy thai happy tourist simcard for internet). When we went to shower & toilet room, its very clean, and the warm water is good...but in the next morning we find someone vomit in the toilet floor and not cleaned yet (probably coz it still 5 am) So overall we very enjoyed our visit here, nice place to stay and make friends.Best location and nice staff.

Accomodation, People, Place are superb!”

I stayed 3 nights. This is my first time staying at hostel. Staffs were nice,really helping. They provide a place for every guest to hang out. I really love this place. Even though during night, the music that came from the club nearby, I can get along with it. Perhaps some people can't accept that. For me, no problem for that. Hostel near to everything you want, restaurants, pub, 7Eleven, Jungceylon Mall, Patong Beach and so on, you name it. This place really suitable for backpacker. I will come again soon.
