Very nice and sociable hostel, we stayed in a double room which was affordable and adequate but a little grotty, small and dark. Overall is a good place and has helpful staff and plenty of common areas and entertainment. Recommended.

There were bedbugs in several of the rooms affecting many guests and nothing was done about it. I caught an infection from the bites and ended up paying to see a doctor, for blood tests and for steroids and antibiotics. It ruined my stay as i was covered in red itchy blisters. i was offered nothing by the hostel. Also the tours are found cheaper in the next road, rip off on all accounts. I met some great people there, it was a shame it could not have worked out better
I went backpacking all over Asia for four months staying at a large variety of hostels and the Phuket Backpacker was by far the best! The staff are very friendly and accommodating (putting myself and my girlfriend up at Christmas for a week with no reservation). The hostel was always clean and comfortable with well-furbished common areas. Anyone thinking of staying in Phuket I would recommend here above anywhere else.
Phuket Backpacker is awesome. This was our first time backpacking and we loved it! It is so clean, safe, and the location isnt too bad -- there is bus stop right out the front which takes you to Patong, Kata, and Karon for only 25 Bart.. but its a thirty- to forty-minute hike! The staff are very friendly and helpful, and kept the place in great condition. Met some really nice people while staying there as well. All in all its a great place!
Nice hostel. clean rooms, hot showers, nice common space with computers, TVs.
