    Good location, helpful staffs and place to meet people”
    I love the location which is near to the beach, bars, shops, restaurants, fresh market and shopping mall but really loud at night. If you are a light sleeper and want a good night sleep, this is not the place for you. Bed is good, toilet and bathroom were clean during the day but were dirty after the evening period. Staffs here are really helpful and friendly. AC worked well during my stay and a great place to meet people from all around the World. However, WIFI didn't work most of the time during my stay.

    Locker provided but u have to get your own padlock, no towel and hair dryer. Comfy bed, wifi sluggish around 8-11 pm when everyone is home. Those are the only few points that needs attention. Other than that, it will be the best backpacking experience u will ever get from this affordable hostel. Two thumbs up!!!

    Good Place to Meet People in the Center of Action”
    I originally booked 2 nights and stayed one extra because I met some great people and liked the vibe. The place is clean. The staff is extremely helpful. It's literally right above a nightclub that goes until 2-3am. If you're into that, it's great. If you aren't, some rooms are much louder than others. Mine was relatively quiet. So, take that for what it's worth to you. Overall, I would definitely stay here again.

    quite clean, rooms are nice and air conditioning is awesome. have quite a bit to do on down time and location is awesome. I'm a fairly heavy sleeper so the noise and sound from the night life underneath did not bother me but could bother others. ended up meeting multiple people here that became great friends and began travelling around with. would go back here in a heart beat.

    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.

    Pretty Cool but Noisy as the Hell.”
    In the Heart of Bangla Rd,that's mean everything you can imagine is happen there… Well,first it wall i want to say it's uppon a Disco and when you are sleeping between 22pm to 5am is better to bring with you Ear Plugs and don't get panic if your room is shaking cuz isn't a Tsunami or Twister around it,is because the noisy that coming from the Disco. By the way the place is absolutly nice,Huge tv room with a lot of cushions and big showers. Is just 5 minutes to Patong Beach and the Biggest Mall center on the Town. Very Clean,Hot Shower,Lockers and Friendly Staff. One of the best place to stay in Thailand.

    Accessible, receptionist hardly speaks english”
    The hotel is located in the center of bangla road, the staff is accommodating and they have a homey atmosphere
    The stay is ok, I only had difficulty finding the hotel when I arrived since the taxi cannot enter the Bangla road (I arrived at 2:30am) so the driver dropped me at the end of Bangla. I asked for help from locals but they had difficulty speaking in English but extended all the help that I need until we were able to find the hotel. The signage is very small and difficult to see. The receptionist who is always there cannot understand English well and just keep on saying yes. He always need to wake the other staff up to talk to me. All guests need to remove the footwear before entering the hotel which is fine but sometimes it's uncomfortable because the floor is dusty. Perfect location if you want to party at night and go to the Patong beach anytime. The room is okay, but I'm afraid I was disturbing the other guests when I get up early morning (the bed is shaky when going down and a little squeaky).

Overall i will go back here someday

    Staff
    The staff were very nice and accommodating. If you are a light sleeper don't expect to sleep comfortably because the noise from the club on the next floor is very distracting. However, if you are planning to party all night and get drunk in bangla road then this hostel is perfect for you! From Phuket Airport, take the mini van going to patong beach and they will drop you off in bangla road.

    Location, price and spotless place
    Location is great right in Bangla Rd. it's by all the main bars and it gets noisy in the rooms (it wasn't a problem for us as we went back to sleep after everything around was closed). Facilities are good, never seen such clean bathrooms in a hostel before. Totally recommend to stay here if you want to party in the evening/night and go to the beach during the day. It's also conveniently close to the local bus stop at the end of Bangla are to Phuket town.

    Uncomfortable stay ”
    Nice staff
    First of all, the staff were quite nice and easy-going and the cleaning staff did a great job in there. However, the bunk structure was annoyingly unstable and poor-built. I stayed at the lower bunk and I couldn't even stretch my back while sitting. Whenever the one staying on my upper bunk turned or moved, the whole bunk shook and vibrated. The location was even more terrible. It's right in the middle of the clubbing street. I saw people said it'd be quiet at night but the truth was exactly the opposite. The music was up all night and loud enough to make the wall tremble. I could honestly say I didn't even have one single night with a good sleep in this hostel.

    Staff, Location, Meeting People
    We had a great time at this hostel. The staff was so extremely friendly and helpful for whatever we needed. It's a great place with a common area if you are seeking to meet people. You come into the lobby area and it looks a bit dodgy at first. But that's just the first impression. It's all very clean and a good vibe. Just be careful with this hostel if you are looking for something quiet or romantic. It is what it is, a hostel in one of the busiest party areas in Thailand.
