        Bad Hostel ever I stayed”

        Minus - Don't get a towel - Don't get Soap and Shampo - Not clean in room because many owner T-shirt in my room - not use curtain in every bed - not friendly staff - Can't speak english - Don't get mineral water - Pressure water to take a bath is low and broken - there are some clothes in Bathroom - there are many girls in downstairs offer massages - don't have board in outside so very difficult to find this hostel Plus - Very near with Bangla Street just walk 2-3 minutes - Very close with Beach - although close with night life but still quite to sleep Actually after I arrived in this hostel I want to move to another hostel but I found good friend in this place and we talk many think and make me a little bit comfortable in this place.

I liked it a lot to be there and extended my stay from one to four nights. And the location is great! Just a few meters from the beach and the bus station in front of the police to the airport.

        Best price in Patong ”

        Near the beach and main party street at an incredible price! People keep weird hours so bring your earplugs. They could definitely do a better job cleaning the bathrooms more frequently. Water pressure is terrible but it gets the job done eventually.

        Above average”

        The bedrooms were clean and comfortable enough but the showers were pretty bad. If you were using the shower at the same time as someone was using one of the sinks you would get hardly any water pressure. The toilet was in the shower which you see a lot with hostels, but these showers are really small and felt like a cupboard. I'd personally would have preferred to pay an extra couple quid and stay somewhere with better facilities.

        Accommodating staff, reasonably priced and convenient location

        For my first time staying in a backpacker hostel such as this I can say it's totally great! It's location is good for those looking to always go to the beach and experience Patong's night life. It was clean and cozy, good A/C and shower area. Totally not what I was expecting for a hostel in this area. Staff are all very accommodating and speaks English well. I met amazing people here so totally worth it!

        Overall, Patong Backpacker Hostel is a great place to stay especially for solo travellers on a budget. Good location, walking distance from the beach and a great place to meet new people. Definitely not for fussy and annoying travellers.

        Decent place, felt clean and good common area with great staff. The 6 person rooms felt slightly cramped but the 10 person room I also stayed in felt ok. The only big downfall was that the wifi sucked.... In the whole place. Wifi in lobby could hardly work, and in my room it didn't work at all on second floor.

        Great hostel, best vibe in Patong, best possible location, close to the beach and party but far from the noise. I have been many times but this time the experience was not perfect, we found many bed bugs in the ten beds dorms on the third floor, Mama only offered me to sleep on the couch, no compensation was offered and I didn't ask because as a long time guest it should have come from them. Furthermore the roof of the outside corridor collapsed due to heavy rain and for the 3 days I stayed no action has been taken to fix it before it collapses completely.

Great communal area where you can hang out and meet other people, thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The dorm rooms are big aswell and so are the beds. Couldn't fault this place! Probably the best hostel I've stayed at.
