Very good for what you pay
We stayed in a double aircon room. Cleanliness was okay when we arrived, but the water in the toilet smelled, which spread over the entire room. We stayed for 6 nights and they didn't clean once or changed the towels, but to be fair, we didn't ask either (though we think they should do it automatically). The toilet seat was loose, which was annoying, and the aircon was not easy to control (too much power at the lowest setting), but overall, for the price it's definitely okay. Location is perfect next to 7/11 and near bus stops and they rent out motorcycles. Staff was friendly.

Rooms were got dark and cold best sleep I have had in Thailand! Comfy beds and pillows. Liked being able to play pool in the lobby. Would recommend but also a little far away from the beaches and airport.

Cheap convenient location. simple.
cheap, location
Cheap simple place. Bunks of 4 beds per dorms, which were partitioned. Not a lot of privacy. The partitions do not lock and slide open/close. Bring your own toiletries. Toilets sometimes flood, and 2 of the 8 showers were also flooded at the time. Can get busy downstairs as person serving/preparing food + drinks is also the person who does all the hotel admin work - took 15 mins to be served for my hotel booking. Bed was comfortable with no bed bugs. Snoring could barely be heard from 2 partitions down. Good crowd comes along, with pool table, books and plenty of seats in the restaurant area. Food is good, and the drinks are plentiful. Excellent location, but not near where the Patong where most of the clubs are - 1 hr motorbike away. They lend out helmets for free - just tell them what bed number you're staying at. Phuket town is a good location for shopping. If you want to party, get accommodation at Patong as centre of nightlife in Phuket.

Cheap and cheerful
Great bar, close to shops, cool dorms at night although roasting in the morning.
This hostel has a great bar and communal film area for everyone to socialise. The beds are comfy and it's nice and cool. Not worth paying extra for air con as the fans blow it around anyway. Really great base if you are going to rent bikes or get local buses from the bus station a few doors down. Only 150THB from the airport andreally close to the port if you are going on to the islands after.

Great hostel for backpackers
Good location, budget hostel, comfortable matress
One of the coolest hostels for backpackers. Location is in the center of the town, near the market and just few walks away from the local bus terminal going Patong/Chalong (cheaper fare than tuktuk and taxi).The matress was comfortable but we were just bit disappointed with bedbugs. Toilet and other areas were clean. Staffs were accommodating and could speak English good. They even allow us to leave our baggage in their storage room upon check-out since we still have to visit some of the temples in town. Faciities are great esp their lounge with bar where people can party and drink.

staff like art is excellent English communicator.
location is tops, It is near the market, songthaew (bus) terminal is just a step away cleanliness and secure. Excellent for backpackers really.
The rooms are clean, the water closet as well is always clean. The staff is warm and accommodating. The location is very close to bus terminal, shops and market. Just a bus ride to Kata beach, Patong Beach. The pink (songthaew ) bus terminal is just a few steps away. For only 10 bath you could go sight seeing around Phuket town and its shopping malls.
