This is a Trusted Review. Why?
This was truly a pleasant surprise. I figured, because of the comparatively low cost of a bed, that it would be lacking in location, service, or facilities but it delivered spades in all! The staff was of paramount friendliness and the owner Rick is a real genuine spirit. The hostel has everything I look for in a backpackers, Air conditioned room with clean sheets, a bathroom cleaned daily, next to the best afternoon market in town and shopping as well as 5 minutes walk to the beach. Even the street was quiet at night and Rick shuts down the hostel bar around midnight so everyone can enjoy a quiet sleep. They offered excellent diving instruction and services and were quick to give advice on the area and scooter rentals. And to top it all off there is a selection of wildlife Rick is passionate to introduce to the travellers; a large talking parrot, a softshell turtle and some magnificently cool sea horses! If I was to have one complaint it would be a few bugs in the bar/lobby in the evening but that's impossible to escape in the area and even then Rick was quick to offer bug spray which quickly quashed the problem. They allowed guests to choose playlists and films in the evenings and the bar had a great energy; a few ex-pats and tourists mingling over drinks and cards but never the electronic-fueled Euro trash atmosphere you find so often ruining Thailand. Kata beach is a real gem in Thailand; holds all the western conveniences but isnt entirely ruined by the tourists. The beach was soft, white and stunning for a mile. Never go to Patong people, get 15 minutes further to Kata you won't be sorry! Thanks guys! ~Willo~
