A chill place to meet new friends ”
My friend and I originally booked 2 nights but stayed for 4 (and would have stayed longer if it weren’t for other plans). Camp Hostel has a really nice vibe for good people looking for a laid back time by the beach! The walk is short to both Kata and Karon, and there’s a lot of restaurants in the surrounding area—including a small night market with delicious and cheap eats. Free drinking water refills were great, and it was nice to have the option to bring mats/snorkels to the beach for free as well. We met some really laid back, interesting people, and will definitely cherish our time at Camp Hostel. It’s simple—just what you need as a backpacker looking for a good time socially. Shout out to Achi, Bayu, and Em for all they do to keep travelers happy. You all rock!
Booked two rooms, one of them was wonderful and definitely worth the price with a large bathroom, aircon and comfortable bed. The other was horrible and stank very bad, no windows and stains on the walls. Fortunately, the staff gave us another room (ask for room upstairs), which was small but okay. I do not know why they try to give the room downstairs to guests, I would get a headache from the smell. The staff were great and very friendly. Helped us out with snorkeling places, taxi to the airport and all other things we needed. They were really attentive, thumbs up! Breakfast is not worth mentioning. Just some bread and butter in the fridge. But water for free!
Ashi is so nice and helps you with everything. Best food right next door. Great place for surf too”
Ashi hooks it up!! I want to stay at camp hostel again!!
Decent place bad location”
Our room was fairly nice. Ac worked great. I was a bit scared of bed bugs after reading all the reviews but we saw none. The staff are never at the desk and you have to attempt to type on this phone locked in this frame to get a hold of them. The location isn’t the best. It is only a 10 minute walk to the beach but overall kata beach is not that grand. I highly recommend skipping Phuket area in general. It’s very touristy.
amazing staff, very cute hostel”
very cute and tucked away down off of the main road. The staff was so helpful and friendly! very responsive. They don't have someone at the front desk all the time - but there is a phone you can use to call, and very clear wifi instructions. I arrived to check in late at night, and so in prep for me they left everything open so that I could get settled and rest up rather than wait. Very thoughtful! The wifi is good, the ac works really well. I stayed in a private room and had my own shower which was very clean.
The place is super cute decoration and clean place! Close to an amazing beach!”
It is all very nice, inside there and location is amazing! There is a cheap and good restaurant exactly in front of the hostel and it is close by a 7/11 as well. Everything is new and in good conditions, also clean! The only thing is that the breakfast is not very good and convinient at the moment. Other than that i loved staying there!
Overbooked moved us to uncle's place which was a huge step down ”
Unfortunately we never got the chance to experience this hostel which was a shame. arrived they over booked the place and Moved us to the owners uncle's place (which is not listed anywhere on the internet probably for the better since it's over priced,lack costumer service and a huge step down from the camp hostel) it was a huge inconvience for us since we had booked to stay 3 nights with hope to extend. They offered us the use of the equipment at the camp and aid since the other place no one spoke English and everything was broken. When given the option to return they wanted to move us daily to a different room so we declined.. The owners uncle where we choose to finish the trip over charged us the last 2 days. Kicked us out of the only sitting area for his wife to be able to sleep without disruption. Hassled us for extra money for 2 days stating we didn't pay(wanted us to pay for the day we checked out at 5am) If given an option to be moved to uncle's place decline ask for refund
Nice vibe to the place”
I liked this place, I liked the vibe of it. I would stay again. I was also lucky because I had the best bed in the dorm: right at the end of the corridor (so no one walking past me), and under the window. The volunteer staff member Ninny was very pleasant and helpful, despite having to deal with a lot of problems with other guests - the owner should have dealt with them, not left it to a volunteer!! However 1/ Please sweep under the bed, not just around it, as my clothes came up very dusty from the dust under the bed 2/ I witnessed 2 guests with problems with their booking - their rooms had been double-booked. Would suggest you check and double-check your booking!
Great location, okay private rooms but don't expect much”
The great thing is that private rooms have a private bathroom and location is pretty good. The rest is so-so: staff is frequently absent or barely speaking English, bed linens and towels are of questionable cleanliness as everything else around the hostel, including occasional cockroaches in the room
Unplanned but it’s work !”
I accidentally booked the bed in the last minute but I reckon that my trip in Phuket was so awesome !great location, met ppl in common, friendly and helpful staffs. Worth my money and definitely go back if I have a chance :)
Shared dormitory may not be the best option.”
Staff were super nice, but the place was relatively new when we visited so they still were figuring things out. Nice and friendly atmosphere though. Internet access was good. A cheap restaurant available on the other side of the street. Breakfast was really bad, dont take it if u have the choice. Shared dormitory had 0 space outside of your small bed cubicle. And the bed cubicle was small enough that my feet stuck out(190cm). Had to put our backpacks in the hallways during the night. Also no towels.
the worst accommodation we had in Thailand / or ever”
After few minutes in our room without window, and with questionable cleanliness we decided to leave and find another accommodation - Despite already paid room. We didn t expect some miracle for that value of money, but this hostel was real disappointment. The owner should change photos of rooms and hostel on the internet. They are not real / or maybe it was real 10 years ago. And last info - the hostel is situated in awful street. Sorry for such a bad review, but this is how we saw this place.
Just what we were looking for. Cheap and good value with comfy beds and clean facilities. Thanks!
After an escalating discussion with the mushroom-eating host, he threatened me with a stone. ”
He offered me the possibility to bring me to my next accommodation and when we arrived, he wanted 300 baht more than we had agreed before. Then the thing with the stone happened.
basically no staff at reception ”

Has Bed Bugs in the bed!!!!!!!! hay pulgas en las camas!!!!!”
El hotel es espantoso, las foros son falsas, hay bed bugs en los colchones!!! no hay cocina, no dan desayuno, la ubicacion es espantosa, no tiene ventanas en las habitaciones y el olor a veneno para las pulgas lo hace al aire irrespirable. The hostel is horrible!! has bed bugs in all matresses, the smell of the posion they put makes the air un breathable, no windows in the room, no breakfast given, no kitchen, no sitting common area, nothing they offer in the app is true. Dont stay here!!
Por un error de ellos no teníamos pieza y nos mandaron a otro hotel, que era lo mas parecido a estar en un mono-bloc soviético de los 70, como no nos quedamos ahí, nos ofrecieron otra pieza de ellos por la noche que era un local a la calle con cortinas... literal. El lugar estaba limpio y ordenado, la cama medio que los resortes se te clavaban, pero tenias cero intimidad y el ruido y la luz de la calle te mataba. Guarda con lo que reserven acá porque con las cortinas y los atrapa sueños te venden algo que no es.
Personal super amable, el sitio genial para lo poco que cuesta. Por poner una pega la habitación era muy húmeda y estaba algo sucia.
réservation faite au mois de septembre pour début février ( 4 nuits avec petit déjeuner ) une fois arrivés sur place on nous annonce qu'ils avaient pris trop de réservations que du coup ils nous mettaient dans un autre bâtiment pas loin . chambre salle , salle de bain salle , ils ne parlaient pas anglais ou presque pas . Le gestionnaire de l'hôtel n'était pas là et difficilement joignable ( sois disant en déplacement à Bangkok ) JE NE RECOMMANDE ABSOLUMENT PAS
Ich hab da mal ne Frage!”
Liebes Agoda, wenn eine Unterkunft eine totale Katastrophe ist und ich dummer weise zwei Tage dort gebucht habe und direkt in der App im voraus bezahlen musste. Weiter hin bei Agoda komplett falsche Bilder online sind (wobei falsche bzw. geschönte Bilder bei sehr vielen Hostels eingestellt sind). Wieso ist es mir nicht möglich Sie über die App zu kontaktieren um die Buchung stornieren zu können? Sie mögen zwar eine Telefonhotline haben, diese kostet mich aber von Thailand aus pro Minute mehr als die gebuchte Übernachtung.
