                Best price in Patong ”

                Near the beach and main party street at an incredible price! People keep weird hours so bring your earplugs. They could definitely do a better job cleaning the bathrooms more frequently. Water pressure is terrible but it gets the job done eventually.

                Above average”

                The bedrooms were clean and comfortable enough but the showers were pretty bad. If you were using the shower at the same time as someone was using one of the sinks you would get hardly any water pressure. The toilet was in the shower which you see a lot with hostels, but these showers are really small and felt like a cupboard. I'd personally would have preferred to pay an extra couple quid and stay somewhere with better facilities.

                extremely convincingly I do not recommend that you stay in this wretched hostel as they will constantly be taken into account at the reception and cheat for money every day You will not be able to relax in public places as they are a kindergarten with noisy and nasty children who will constantly scream will interfere You will not be able to sleep either, Because there are a lot of discos, clubs and restaurants around the establishment, which will play constantly loudly during the day you won't be able to sleep either, because there white light curtains let in sunlight straight from the sea and you cannot rest there day or night

                Great Location but very loud”

                Great location, right in the heart of Patong, no need to take a taxi anywhere, all the action is there.

                patong backpacker hostel is in a great location, and a great place to meet travelers. the front desk attendants are extremely helpful and were able to assist me with setting up day trips to koh phi phi and taxi's to the airport. you are able to meet a lot of solo travelers, and i made a lot of new friends. the location is very hard to find for taxi drivers. i needed to call the hostel and ask them for a landmark for the driver to find it, and when you get there you need to go down a small opening behind a massage parlor and up some stairs, and then you're there. i stayed in a mixed dormitory right on the 2nd floor, and had the upstairs bunk right next to the window, bad decision. since the hostel is in the middle of patong, the sounds of the street, and the music were blasting up until about 4am. so bring ear plugs or request a room not on the street side. also a tip is to bring your own towel, or else you will have to pay a 400baht deposit, plus 30baht, and keep your receipt or else you can't get your 400 deposit back. overall a great place to meet people, but i wouldn't be able to stay more than 2 or 3 nights.

                STAFF STAFF STAFF

                This is exactly what it says on the tin - a backpackers hostel. It's all about dorm style sleeping, shared bathrooms, and the common area. The place is clean and the bathrooms are large, the beds were comfortable even if we were a little cramped in the bedroom we were in. By far the highlight of the place though is the staff. They were friendly, helpful, funny and generally made our stay a joy. I would recommend the place to any backpacker on the basis that you will get all the help you need from the staff here. Patong itself, as far as I could see, was good for little more than party party party. The excursions to nearby islands like Phi Phi are something but if you are looking for a relaxed beach holiday, I would suggest Patong is not the place for you.

                Hostel staff is the most friendly and helpful ive met

                In all honestly I was not a fan of Patong until I met the staff in my hostel. They were so helpful and friendly. I think they also put solo travelers in the same room, so it was really easy to meet others and make good friends to enjoy the night life. If you are looking for a cheap place with a fantastic location in the middle of everything (partying and beach), stay at Patong backpackers.

Good location across from the beach and close to the biggest party area, wifi is good at lobby people are nice and beds are more comfortable with the best price in Patong area, you would be sad to stay elsewhere. You can buy a shuttle bus ticket to airport at counter or tour package to discover other islands and can trust with good price. Very recommended for backpackers.

                Great location, Amazing staff, Great Patrons

                The owner’s sister & mother went out of their way to help you each & everyday. They’d got me a discount on my scuba diving and recommended where to shop and how to barter. It lost points since there were only two paid wifi accounts to be spread out across all hostel patrons which lasted 24 hours from purchase & the fact that they charged by the hour for desktop internet use - on pretty ancient ancient machines no less. There were also a few cockroaches I noticed the morning of my departure but weren’t a total dealbreaker since its location could not be beat. If you’re going to Patong to party hard & vacation harder (I didn’t sleep much at all that week) then your only logical choice should be Patong Backpacker Hostel.

                Mama and her staff make this place! I was dreading it having stayed in Phuket before but Mama was amazing. She told off the drunk lads coming in and waking me up (I had to go to hospital the next day) and she made sure I was ok being alone with two boys. They were friendly and harmless enough!!! The location is great and safe. The hostel is surprisingly quiet considering where you are. I would never go back to Phuket unless I had to, but if I had to again I would stay at Mama's!

While I was there they were never full, but it might get a bit crowded if all beds were taken. The atmosphere was perfect for young backpackers. TV viewing area, well priced beer and snacks.
