        Good position for ferry travellers”

        Clean, great travel desk; 10 minutes to ferry; central position close to markets, shopping, some nightlife, transport to other Phuket locations.

        Phuket Backpackers has an ideal position for people landing in Phuket and wishing to catch a ferry south. It is only a few km from the pier, has an excellent travel desk that manages to sell ferry tickets considerably cheaper than at the pier (go figure) and the price includes free van transfers to the pier. The central position within Phuket town is pretty good too – adjacent you have the fresh food markets, the songthaew (small public bus) stops for the beaches and most other Phuket island destinations, a 7/11 and several budget priced Muslim general and vegetarian restaurants. General shopping and some night-life venues are pretty close. I’ve stayed many times in Phuket Backpackers squeaky clean budget backpacking dorms but this is the first time I’ve used their double rooms. These used to be in a small garden setting behind the backpacker area but it seems recently they have purchased and refurbished a hotel about 3 places north on the street which has given them an extra 20 units minimum. Our room was clean, spacious, king bed pretty firm but not the killer some Thai beds can be. Quiet aircon and fan no hanging areas for clothes. Okay bathroom with good hot water, towels, toilet tissue but no soap. All rooms are set back from the street so miss the market set up noise that begins maybe 4am.

        Cheap convenient location. simple. ”

        cheap, location

        Cheap simple place. Bunks of 4 beds per dorms, which were partitioned. Not a lot of privacy. The partitions do not lock and slide open/close. Bring your own toiletries. Toilets sometimes flood, and 2 of the 8 showers were also flooded at the time. Can get busy downstairs as person serving/preparing food + drinks is also the person who does all the hotel admin work - took 15 mins to be served for my hotel booking. Bed was comfortable with no bed bugs. Snoring could barely be heard from 2 partitions down. Good crowd comes along, with pool table, books and plenty of seats in the restaurant area. Food is good, and the drinks are plentiful. Excellent location, but not near where the Patong where most of the clubs are - 1 hr motorbike away. They lend out helmets for free - just tell them what bed number you're staying at. Phuket town is a good location for shopping. If you want to party, get accommodation at Patong as centre of nightlife in Phuket.

        Great hostel”

        Booked for 1 night and ended up staying over a week. Paid for a double aircon room and got a triple room for the same price. Clean hostel with comfy beds and a kitchen if you want to do some cooking. Really nice staff. Good location to look around Phuket town, close to lots of nice places to eat. Busses go to all over the island from right outside the door for 35baht a person. Would really recommend.

        I always have plansto travel onwards from Phuket but each time I go I get stuck at the Backpackers because it is just so good. I always meet interesting characters here. Free proper computers, not just WiFi.I have escaped to Ao Nang whereI'm at Slumber Party Two which is excellent too but not an institution like Phuket Backpackers where there are lotsof comfy lounges and DVD movies to watch in them. None of that here at Ao Nang! I am going back to Phuket for the Vegetarian Festival beginning October 24. If you are very lucky I might just see you there!

        I Just Reviewed Phuket Backpacker Last Week”

        Location, Services, Other Guests

        I cannot fault Phuket Backpacker. I stayed here a week ago and came back again for the Vegetarian Festival. This is my fourth stay and the only change I have noticed which I didn't like is that the owner keeps putting back the time the aircon in the dorms goeson. Now it is back to 10pm but much worse wouldhave to happen to stop me coming. I like the fact that they have real computers although these could do with a bit of TLC as well, mr owner. They also have a big selection of DVDs which you can play on the TV if you can't find anything to do. If you've had it with Patong, relax in town at Phuket Backpackerson Ranong

        Clean, garden, kitchen”

        Rooms clean, has tv, ac, hot shower and nice sparkling white sheets. Cute garden in the yard adds specific charm to this place and gives a space for chill. I really liked this oasis in ugly Phuket downtown. Ahh, yeah! Location... It is bad and unuseful. Far from any beaches and only expensive moto rentals nearby. What made me happy is kitchen, very clean, full of stuff for cooking, including tons of spices and sauces. Must have for long time travellers, who are tired of local foos and want to prepare something pleasurable for themselves. When i was here (Feb 2017), hotel was undet construction particially, so this guys care about improvements. Also PC with internet, big tv and lots of books, games and movies in lobby. This place could me the best in the Phuket if they change location.

        well located good value ”

        close to town central,fresh food marketstransport to the beaches. good travel desk and now quiet and cooler dorms

        Unlike the aircon rooms which are located in a reconditioned building a few doors down the road, the fan rooms are at the rear of the main building – adjacent the small garden area. You will find bigger, less expensive fan rooms in Phuket town but I keep returning to Phuket Backpackers because of its good position (adjacent the fresh food markets, a 24 hour 7-11 supermarket, the bus stops to the beaches and close to town central shopping and other businesses) and its good travel desk (now at the main bar) where ferry tickets to the islands are appreciably cheaper than at the pier and include free van transport. My room was just big enough for two people and their gear and had a comfy bed and pillows,an old tv and an easy chair. It was just about due for a repaint and some tlc. Being out the back it was pretty quiet. The bathroom had good hot water, towels + toilet paper but no soap. Lighting was okay. Main complaint was that heat soak from the roof made it pretty hot – the fan was okay but people who like their cool should maybe look at the aircon rooms. The backpacker kitchen is nearby to brew up a cuppa or prepare a meal (there are also plenty of hot food choices out on the street and in the markets) , adjacent the kitchen is a tv/video/free computer (only 2 these days) room and the lively pub/lounge is out fronting the street. Wondering if pub noise had spoiled the partly-overhead dorm area I went up and checked it out. The good news is that sound proof doors have been installed which keeps outside racket to a minimum (including 4am set-up noise at the markets which used to be a problem for dorms overlooking the street) – the doors also keep in cool air from 2 big aircon systems so even though the dorms are classed as fan they were appreciably cooler than when I have stayed up there. The dorm area including bathrooms was as spotless as usual.

        Great hostel for backpackers”

        Good location, budget hostel, comfortable matress

        One of the coolest hostels for backpackers. Location is in the center of the town, near the market and just few walks away from the local bus terminal going Patong/Chalong (cheaper fare than tuktuk and taxi).The matress was comfortable but we were just bit disappointed with bedbugs. Toilet and other areas were clean. Staffs were accommodating and could speak English good. They even allow us to leave our baggage in their storage room upon check-out since we still have to visit some of the temples in town. Faciities are great esp their lounge with bar where people can party and drink.

        location is tops, It is near the market, songthaew (bus) terminal is just a step away cleanliness and secure. Excellent for backpackers really.

        The rooms are clean, the water closet as well is always clean. The staff is warm and accommodating. The location is very close to bus terminal, shops and market. Just a bus ride to Kata beach, Patong Beach. The pink (songthaew ) bus terminal is just a few steps away. For only 10 bath you could go sight seeing around Phuket town and its shopping malls.

        If you just arrived to Phuket by bus, or want to sleep quietly away from noisy parties, - this is the place! Lockers could be larger but still ok. You can play pool 😉 You can reach any beach by cheap buses from station in 100m from hostel.

        Lovely hotel, great facilities”

        Convenient location, many facilities available for use

        Conveniently located along Ranong Road, the hostel is easily accessible, and along Ranong Road you can also flag one of the numerous buses that head to the other beaches. The facilities provided in the hostel are lovely, from hot showers to a lovely lounge with computers for use and a TV with DVD player (and a huge selection of movies). There is a bar right under the hostel, and the staff are lovely and helpful. You can also book your tours/ packages through the hostel staff, and they do offer discounts. Rooms are very basic, and although the room doors cannot be locked from the outside, lockers are provided for storing your valuables. There may be a lack of power sockets in your room, so do check with the staff for power strips if you need to power up your gadgets. Limited space in the rooms, so make use of the common areas to lounge around (seats and beanbag chairs are available!)

        Nice Staff, Great location

        nice staff, great location. if you are at all comfortable with riding a motorcycle or bicycle on crowded streets, then rent a scooter. only baht/day, and taxis in phuket are notoriously overpriced. the driving might look like madness, but cars are very considerate of scooters and nobody wants to see an accident.

        Great Hostel for Value”

        This was a very clean hostel that I really enjoyed staying at for a few days. The AC is strong, which is a good thing, but they only turn it on in the evenings. Which is fine because normally I'm out during the day. They have a kitchen/fridge area if you want to cook, a small desk to do some work on, and small lockers. Overall, the facilities were very nice for the price. Literally a few steps from the bus stops that take you to all of the beaches (40baht) which is the cheapest mode of transportation. A few shops down from a 24 hour 7-11 and close to some local food stalls. Only thing is that all restaurants/stalls seem to close really early so make sure you eat before 7pm. If you enjoy peace and quiet, this place is a good place to visit for a few days but if you're looking to meet people, probably not. When I stayed there there were not a lot of people.

        No staff was present to receive us around 9pm, however this was not a problem as our keys were left outside for us and it was an automatic locking door. The room was great and peaceful and even though it is advertised as a backpackers hostel, we could stay as a couple nicely.

        i like the location because easy to get Songteaw(which is cheaper than tuk tuk)

        I love when i was staying here. I met travelers from other country and the food stalls near hostels sold a lot of cheap foods. but it is not comfortable when you bathing because the some bathroom they just close it with curtain from plastic. i recommend to walking around the streets near the hostels also eventhough i got lost after that i'm really thank to lady who gave me lift went back to hostel. in phuket town we can see chinatown thai version, tai hua museum(if i'm not wrong), some famous restaurants such as natural, suay, and blue elephant restaurant. near central local street food .

        All you need when ackpacking”

        Phuket Backpackers is the perfect place to settle down for a while when backpacking. They ve got fully equipped kitchen to make your own meal, and pleasant chill out room when you can relax, watch some tv or share a tea with other backpackers in the gardens. The only thing that could be improve is the setup of a curfew, as people are often listening to loud tv or chatting right in front of the bedrooms late at night (most of excursions start before 7, and staying up until 2am is not always so pleasant)
