We wandered into this hostel after walking around Phuket on a very very hot day with our back packs on. Price for a triple room was 250 baht per person (£5 each) and the room was fantastic! Air conditioned, private bathroom, western toilet, complimentary shower gel and soap, plus bottled water in room. Very clean, and the staff were amazing!...

Price is very cheap. As for the price I don't expect much. I travel in a group of more than 10 of us. Some of us get free upgrade of room. Anyway, room is big and clean. However, some of the room's air-con leaks and they manage to fix it temporary. The receptionist is excellent. She is very helpful and...

The hostel is a reasonable stay for a few days. You have the choice between A/C and fan rooms. Breakfast is included, though very small (and a pice of butter that is cut in half, which is a little embarrassing). If you think about booking a tour in this hotel, don't! You will get ripped of. Usually hotel staff gives...

Thank you for your feedback, and what we are wondering is where you got the price of 900 baht for a James Bond Island from, so that we'll source our tour package from there as well. It's an unbelievable bargain, indeed! About the Phi Phi Island ferry, our price might not be the lowest in the market, but it is...

As the name says, the hostel is literally in the old town of Phuket. Staying here allowed me to share a piece of its rich history. Convenient location particularly the nearby town bus terminal with easy access to the famed beaches and bays. The very affordable B & B is simple, peaceful, clean and pleasant. And the helpful, friendly and...

I stayed here for a night between going to islands. I'd seen it in lonely planet together with mixed reviews on trip advisor but thought I'd give it a go. Surprised that hardly any of the taxi drivers knew it heading out there, when it really is a great little hostel. Clean rooms with air con for a good price,...

Yes, you get what you pay for. This place is cheap, dirt cheap.We stayed here one night before we took the ferry to Phi Phi island, we paid for the pick up at the airport, and they booked us our ferry tickets- both great amenities.

Thank you for your feedback. Phuket Old Town is a nice old town area full of heritage buildings, which is more classic and quite different from touristy Patong. In my opinion, it's worth spending a night here to explore the town before heading somewhere else.
