                Cheap, clean, friendly

                i did choose this little budget hotel beacause i needed a one night hotel in phuket town before continuing to the beaches of phuket. the hotel is located in the old town, so its in a nice neighbourhood where you can walk arround nice and easily. the room i had was very cheap, but surprisingly clean. i booked a fan room and i got more for the price than i expected. would i go back there? yes for sure if im on a budget trip again!

                The hotel is in the heart of Old Town Phuket. very beautiful and quiet neighborhood. Very far from the beach (the cloesest one is around 20km away) so you'll need a scooter, rentining a taxi all the time might cost you a fortune. the room had no window and it was a bit too hot in there so we had to keep the fan running all the time. other than that everything was OK

                Clean room and friendly staff

                We booked for a standard room. It was very clean, but no windows to see outside. The location was very closed to the market and next to a fruit shop. Several restaurants and cafes around the hotel with the affordable price. The bus station for city transportation is just on the corner. But the water was dripping from the ceiling right on our shoulder when we sit on the toilet.

                Great location in phuket old town although we were there for Chinese new year so restaurants and bars were all shut. Room was basic but very clean. We had a three person room with private bathroom. The bathroom walls did not join the ceiling so it felt like you were using the toilet while in same room as friends. Staff were really friendly with good English.

                Location is good

                This place is just ok. The rooms are typical budget fare and are of a good size, but the WiFi signal doesn't reach to all the rooms meaning if you need it you need to sit in ground floor cafe -- not a huge problem as it is a friendly bunch who run it.

                Hostel is located in quiter part of town. Our room was large with a great double bed and a extra bed. The staff are very friendly and speak good english. Great value for money. Little noise due to thin walls and bring a dark sheet to cover the indoor window looking out on the hallway. The location of the hostel is in the old town with a couple of good restaurant nearby.

                What out scam!”

                The location is great and the rooms are nice and clean. AC is perfect and the bathroom is what you expect for the price. However the service is horrible!!! We wanted to book a ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi leaving at 11 am that morning. First the girl at the reception wanted to book us the ferry at 1:30 pm. After we decided to book the tickets at the pier and we were just stepping into a cab she told us that she can book us the ferry for 11 am with free transport. We believed her and waited for her cab. When we arrived at the pier we were declined by the ferry company operating at 11 am. They said or hotel didn't make a reservation and told us that our receipt was only valid for the Farry operated by another company leaving at 1:30 pm. In total we just lost 2 hours but it was still quite a hustle and it was the first time(!) in South East Asia that we were scammed by the hostel reception. Is a good place to stay but don't rely on them!

                Doesn't care about the client. Money, money money”

                the hôtel tries giving à good image but doed non moral things. They don't care about the Customer if he payed. We had à loud room, asked for another. The hôtel was empty and the manager didn't want at the beginning. We had to insist and the insist on getting à refund because the other room was cheaper. And finaly They FORCE people to take poses and pictures for their facebook. To take them think They have a good image.

                Good location”

                The location without a doubt, it is near to everything in the Lonely Planet

                My actual sleep wasn't good, because the room had no curtains and all the hallway light and foyer lights, everything was on, so it was like trying to sleep in daytime. I also used the taxi service they offered to the airport. as it was a Sunday and I was struggling to find anything else as my flight was 8h the next morning. I thought they were a bit exuberant with their taxi fee, the owner tried to charge me an extra 100 baht, while the price was on the wall. I paid 700 baht for a taxi to the airport- which is 200 over going price. Otherwise the place is in a good location

                price friendly staff

                Even though it says there is airport shuttle on the site there isn't one and will cost $20 USD for taxi each way. There isn't much to see really but the staff is friendly with clean rooms and a nice hot shower.

                Great location. Friendly, helpful staff.”

                Great location in center of old quarter.

                I booked a fan room but due to thin walls, a noisy neighbor and a sleepless night staff moved me to a triple air-con room for the same price without asking. It's the only room in the place with a window. However, it's noisy all night due to trucks arriving and workers unloading and chopping coconuts all night right under the window. Not peaceful but possible to sleep with earplugs. Other than that, a great location and friendly staff.

                Enjoyable Stay At Phuket Old Town Hostel”

                Location right in the middle of Phuket Old Town, Baba Nonya Buildings and Culture

                The Hostel is located right smack in the middle of Old Phuket Town making it a very lively, interesting and historical locale to be in. Phuket Old Town shares the same Baba Nonya Heritage as Penang and Malacca and will be a huge delight to both culture and history aficionados. My deluxe room, which was overlooking the old historical street of Krabi, provided ample comfort and cleanliness. The pillows were soft and the bed was cosy enough for a good night's sleep. However, as my room was facing the main road, it did get rather noisy at times, especially when speeding motorcycles pass the vicinity. The staff, especially Phra was extremely helpful and accommodating. Overall, I am highly satisfied with my stay at this quaint and delightful place and will definitely be back in future.

                Good location, helpful staff, clean room

                This hostel is in a good location in old town, Phuket. It is not the most social hostel as there are no dorms but as breakfast is available I imagine it is possible to meet people then if you are travelling alone.
