Best Hostels In Phuket
Since Phuket is so popular among tourists and backpackers, when planning a trip to Phuket the options can get a bit overwhelming. Especially when trying to sift through the wide range of hotels and hostels. You obviously want your trip to be a memorable one, so picking the best hostel in Phuket is most likely on the top of your priority list. However, what’s best for you may not be best for another. So here we have narrowed down your choices so you can choose the best hostel according to what’s most important to you.
If location is on the top of your list then Bed Hostel Phuket is the hostel for you! This hostel is located in the heart of Phuket with all the hot spots just steps away from its front door. Food markets, restaurants, bars, liquor stores, you name it! Being so central can help you save money on transportation, and is very convenient. So if being centrally located is important to you, look no further. Along with the great location, the rooms are rated as clean and modern which is a huge plus to anyone, also the price is decent. The price is on average 500 Baht a night. The staff here is very helpful as well, they give great recommendations on where to go and help you plan out your excursions. They even arrange for you to join others who have similar itineraries so you can save money on transportation. Talk about accommodating! Bed Hostel offers free coffee and tea, as well as good wifi, which can be hard to find when travelling. The hostel itself has a cool city loft style design giving it a homey and relaxed feel. The beds are super comfy, which could be why it has a 4.5 rating on TripAdvisor! This hostel however does not have the same community feel like the others do. This could be because the common area isn’t very big or inviting. That doesn’t mean you can’t make friends, it just might take a bit more effort. Are you up for the challenge?
Looking to just chill out and surf? Fin Hostel is just that! Only a five minute walk from the beach (right between Kata Beach and Karon Beach), you can roll out of bed, grab your surfboard and hit the waves in less than ten minutes! Since Fin Hostel attracts mostly beach bums the vibe is relaxed and inviting. So if you’re looking to take a break from the crazy parties and want some quiet time to just hang out with cool people, this is the hostel for you. That being said, Fin Hostel isn’t very centrally located, which can be a good and bad thing. The good thing about it is it’s away from the busy touristy areas, however if you feel like going into the hustle and bustle, it will be a bit of a trek. Good thing the staff is extremely helpful and ready to help you get to where you need to go. The staff arrange fun excursions like trips to see a Muay Thai fight, or half moon parties. There are food markets and cheap fun bars located close to this hostel, so there are many options to mix it up. The rooms are about 500 Baht a night and are very clean. Also, unlike other hostels, it’s quiet! The beds are also big and comfortable, so you’re bound to get a great sleep here. The hostel has a modern design with fun colourful bunks. The common area is great for socializing equipped with a projector screen playing movies. There’s also a BBQ and a rooftop pool! So grab a beer, fire up the BBQ, and chill out to the sound of the waves.
