                Best hostel!”

                They change your sheets everyday and a new towel too! Bathrooms are beautiful and kept very clean. Nice showers! The staff are kind, cute, and helpful. I liked it very much here and if I'm ever in Phuket again this is 100% where I'm staying. There's a 711 next door and a money exchange outside which makes staying here very convenient. Plus the beach is an easy five minute walk and it's gorgeous.

                The hostel is beside a 7-11 which is very convenient. The owners are nice and helpful. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and it was very spacious. I was able to meet other solo travelers and really had a nice stay here. Everything was nice and clean. Definitely will stay again.

                Awesome Place & Important Info. ”

                Great location in Kata, Fun decorations (like the Real World), staff keep it very clean and well managed, safe area, night street market is next door has great food, guests were nice & respectful, quiet/good sleep, nice balconies! Staff was a little disorganized/some miscommunication - I had a little difficulty getting ahold of the staff when I arrived at night and they forgot to tell me about the deposits (towel – 300B, key – 200B) and front door code (I got locked out, so make sure to get the code). Overall, it was a nice, clean and well managed. FYI - In Phuket, public transportation is very challenging/unreliable, Taxi/Grab are extremely expensive, and it's not easy to walk from beach to beach... if you want to explore other beaches, etc. I recommend staying here/Kata Beach for a few nights and then stay at another beach/area. If you only want to stay by Kata Beach (it’s a beautiful beach) then you are all set here.

I fitted both my 65L and a small backpacks in there and still have room for more stuff. There’s also money exchange and travel booking right in front. I would stay there again.

                The hostel could not find my booking when I arrived then the lady in the reception start taking all my passport details, immigration card...etc even though I showed them my confirmation of booking details. She might be doing her job however I don't think its necessary. Apart from that the hostel is clean, good rain head shower and 7-11 is 10m away. Kata is full of Russian tourists and price of food..etc are way over price more expensive than patong

                If you are a solo traveler who need warm water to take shower, please don't choose this hostel. The water for shower is damn cold(not even warm at all) and when you asked the staff for the hot water. They would say check for you but it did not work at all. The manager come to site and just argued with me. 'You want me to pay you for five stars hotel to take hot water shower, is it?' This is the attitude from the manager. Providing hot water is a basic service for a hostel. I don't know why they lack of hot water but still so righteous. I will not recommend this hostel at all!!!!!!

                Stayed here for 2 nights while in town for a scuba weekend. For the price, you really can't beat it. Shortcut walkway to Kata beach, located just next to the night market (where I grabbed dinner each night), and surrounded by several restaurants, mini marts and cafes.. 6-bed dorm and 4-bed were the same price..I booked the 6 bed having seen the space difference and its worth it! Super cozy, clean room, large lockers, and a nice balcony. Co-ed bathrooms with toiletries provided in the showers. Although the hostel was fairly quiet, my roommates were awesome people. Perfect solo-travel weekend with just enough socialization. The ladies at the front desk were so sweet and helpful- directing me to the beach, booking an airport shuttle, and just chatting through the day. They can arrange several tours and onwards transport at their front desk for reasonable prices. Please put your money towards this amazing, locally-owned hostel!

                The location is well situated near the main road in Kata. Just the right of the Hostel there's a 7-eleven convenience store for budget buys. The hostel is situated just beside Kata's night market where you can get various food options. There's also a pathway to Kata near to the hostel. Staffs were good and accommodating , if you want to rent a bike, there's a lot of option in the same street the hostel is located. Note: I've noticed when I wake early, there's no hot shower, probably the staff has to switch on the heater manually. No breakfast is provided but they have hot water if you want to make coffee. There's a currency exchange booth and tour booth in front of the hostel entrance too.
