Overall, the stay was just good. The staff were friendly and were always pretty helpful or at least pointed you in the right direction. Location was pretty good and less than a 10-min walk from the airport bus terminal (only 100 baht/person!). It's also right around the corner from the weekend market. Wifi was also fine and the other guests seemed nice enough. Breakfast is also very simple--bread, coffee, tea, fruit, etc. I can't say that I'd definitely stay here again if I come back to Phuket Town.
I think the pictures are a bit misleading and should be updated. Maybe when the hostel was new and with a filter, it looks like the pictures posted on here. However, the place has deteriorated quite a bit. The showers have what look like mold growing in them. There's marks and such on the walls of the bed and only one outlet, so make sure that you bring some kind of multiple plug converter. They provided a blanket/towel thing, which I ended up using for both bathing and sleeping. Bring your own towel or pay them 20 baht to rent one if you want to avoid doing this. I just feel like for a "poshtel", it wasn't very posh.
+ the price was extremely good - I never met before this kind of price with breakfast and such a localization (very near everything!!!) + the staff was really nice and friendly :) + it really likes capsule hotel + I could check in 5 hours before the right time - nice of them :)
+ the toilet was quite smelly and hot (no bathroom fan and the area without air conditioning) - besides bathroom taps should be renovated + the breakfast wasn't quite good, unfortunately the ants got to the jams... + in the lobby was so hot (no air conditioning, sometimes they turn on the fans)
The bed is very confortable and the AC is really cool. The breakie is alright, toast and fruit with free coffee and cookies. The reception is nice to hang out. It is close to Phuket old town, although there isn't much to do around.
There isn't a door on the dorm. Even the private room has only a curtain. People kept sneaking in when passing through the room. The toilet is not pretty clean also, but I guess it's on the weird guests.
Nice place and staff was great, they are so hospitaeble and helpful. They give you all informations and help you to arrange and for booking some other things.
