We offer a home away from home. With our newly renovated property we offer our guests clean and comfortable accommodation set in a contemporary boutique Chinese Asian fusion style.

Phuket Backpacker Hostel is located in the centre of Phuket Town, the origin of Phuket Thai-Chinese culture. Phuket town is rich with architectural gems from Classic Chino-Portugese homes, Wat's (Thai temples) and Chinese shrines etc. On top of the architectural and religious attractions of Phuket town you can get a real taste of Thai local life - take a slow walk around the central market and watch the world go by from many of the roadside coffee shops. As a predominantly Buddhist culture you will find Buddhism cymbals in most every-day lives. One of the most charming sights for a Farang (foreigner) is to wake early morning and watch the Monks clad in saffron color robes walk the streets bare foot looking for donations of breakfast.

But let us not forget Phuket's beautiful beaches! (Of which there are many). From the tourist hot spot of Patong Beach to the more remote and less trodden beaches of Cape Panwa. All are within easy reach as there is a bus stop literally right outside our door!

Need modern convenience? We are only 5 minutes away from the newly opened Central Festival shopping centre. This center boasts world class brands, eateries and a multi screen Cineplex.

FULL BALANCE of payment payable as stated in your booking contract WILL BE COLLECTED UPON CHECK -IN even if duration of stay is shortened. Please do not make an online booking with us if your are not sure of your arrival time & duration of stay.

E-mail us for clarification.

Awesome 85%

I used this hostel mainly as a base for day trips out of the city, so I was pretty much only there to sleep. Driving into the city it seemed like the hostel was a little further away from some of the other hostels to the more interesting streets, but they were all within walking distance. The hostel offered a few different activities for people free of charge - like tours of the local markets and temples, and they had a huge selection of DVDs that people in the lounge were always watching - I would have taken advantage of both of these if I had stayed longer. Most of the people behind the desk were nice and quite helpful, and I even got a free upgrade to an air conditioned room when I came back after 3 days away. Which reminds me - the air conditioned room was a lot nicer than the fan room (nicer bedding and decorations) so depending on your budget it's definately worth thinking about. The fan rooms left a lot to be desired. I stayed in much nicer hostels in other cities in Thailand, but for a backpacker hostel, this one offered a few great perks and was good enough.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Location is only average - not near the beach - although it is in the town area and close to transport to a variety of locations. The room we stayed in was very clean however the attached bathroom smelled badly. We left the window open to air out the room and the staff thought we were wasting the a/c. One staff member walked straight in the room without permission and closed it. After speaking with her she cleaned the bathroom. For some reason you can't get a/c rooms through Travellerspoint and Hostelworld at this guesthouse. But all types of rooms including dorms are overpriced given the location and type of accomodation. Facilities are good. There is a large screen TV in a lounge area with a large variety of DVD's to choose from. The TV's in the double rooms only show Thai TV - no english - and they charge 20 baht rental to take a DVD to your room. Service was average. Some staff were pleasant. Others were not so pleasant. The staff was noisy late at night and early in the morning. Overall the hostel was generally clean and comfortable but it is overpriced.
