1. Lub d Phuket Patong

Lub d Phuket Patong is ultra-modern, super Instagrammable (they say so themselves but it’s right) and with an excellent location in Patong. For these reasons and more, it’s one of the best hostels in Phuket.

Each bunk comes with a variety of thoughtful shelves and outlets, ideal for all your gadgets, notepads, earplugs and whatever else you’re carrying!

The hostel is just a 3-minute walk from Patong beach, so it’s in an ideal central location for having the best time in Phuket, as it’s all about the beach! Not only that, but Bangla Road is within walking distance, so there are plenty of places for a quality relaxing evening.

The dormitories are great too. They also offer private rooms with private bathrooms. So you can see why this is one of the best hostels in Phuket!

There’s also a Muay Thai training area in the lobby, so it’s great if you like Muay Thai. There are incredible common areas, including a huge bar and pool. It’s clean, comfortable and has super cool staff – the best hostel in Phuket, we think.

  • Address: 5/5 Pa Tong, Kathu District, Phuket
  • Phone number: +6676530100
  • Check-in time: 2pm
  • Check-out time: 12h

2. The Neighbors Hostel

The Neighbors Hostel is an excellent choice if you’re traveling solo. It’s close to all the attractions of Phuket’s old town – everything is within walking distance, even the main bus station.

The hostel offers you the chance to socialize with others all day long in the super-comfortable common area. You could find a coffee shop (free coffee and cookies in the morning) or seek some privacy in your bed, easily closed by curtains.

The rooms are all well-equipped.

Plus, lively streets with bars and restaurants are just a few minutes away. It offers a good balance of local vibes with superb facilities. A stay in Phuket town rather than on Patong beach is a completely different experience, and quite refreshing if you’re feeling a little island-weary.

One thing you’ll love about Southeast Asia is the Chinese stores popping up everywhere, and this Phuket hostel is in one of them. The decor has been preserved, from the tiles in its traditional style with modern renovations, the elegant furniture mixed with antiques, the overall romantic air of it.

  • Address: 93 Phangnga Rd, Tambon Talat Yai, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket
  • Phone number: +66943433399
  • Check-in time: 2 pm
  • Check-out time: 11am

3. Pineapple Gesthouse

A bit simple, a bit messy in the reception area, not an incredible atmosphere, but on the other hand, Pineapple Guesthouse is a pretty relaxing and trendy hostel to unwind during the day. So why is it included in our list of the best hostels in Phuket? Well, if you don’t fancy conversations with strangers 24/7 and you’re a bit of an introvert, then this is a bit of a problem for you.

Pineapple Gesthouse Phuket

We probably shouldn’t neglect to mention that this place is super close to the beach. If you like to enjoy nature views, this is the beachfront hostel for you. That’s probably why it’s so cool.

Address: 291/4 Patak Road, Karon Plaza, Karon, Muang, Phuket

Phone number: +66865511227

Check-in time: 2pm

Check-out time: 12 pm

4. The Memory at On On Hotel

If you’re traveling with your buddy, we highly recommend a stop at The Memory at On On Hotel.

It’s located right in the heart of Phuket town and it’s ideal for those who want to discover the local culture and history.The rooms are honestly the best of all the hostels in Phuket. The rooms are so well designed, spacious and beautiful!

We’re not sure if this is called The Memory or On On Hotel, but we do know that it’s the oldest Phuket hostel in town. It’s been recently renovated and looks more like a luxury hotel than a backpacker hostel, so we can say it’s the best hostel for couples in Phuket. You’re sure to enjoy the central location and affordable luxury.

  • Address: 19 Phangnga Rd, Tambon Talat Yai, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket
  • Phone number: +6676363700
  • Check-in time: 2pm

5. Borbaboom Poshtel

If you stay at an inn called Borbarboom Poshtel, well, you know it’s going to be chic. That’s pretty much guaranteed at this trendy inn. So, the private rooms there are pretty huge, super modern, well designed, industrial chic style, with more fun colors in the furniture and everything. You’ll love it.

Borbaboom Phuket
This is the best hostel with a private room, but you get the impression that this will always be the case with a “Poshtel”. There’s a rooftop terrace with a pool, a kitchen to use, everything is really clean and the staff are really friendly – even if they don’t know English very well. Don’t worry! You’re in Thailand.

  • Address: 73 1-73/2 Ratsada Rd, Tambon Talat Yai, Mueang Phuket District, Chang Wat Phuket
  • Phone number: +66823442380
  • Check-in time: 2pm
  • Check-out time: 12pm

6. ChillHub Hostel

Chillhub is the right word for this hostel. It will give you the sense that it’s not a youth hostel thanks to its comfort.

ChillHub Hostel Phuket
It’s a 2-minute walk from Bangtao beach, which would make you guess a beachfront hostel. The beach is rather chilly and not exactly a lively place.

  • Address: 69/140-142 Moo3, Bangtao Beach, Choeng Thale, Thalang District, Phuket
  • Phone number: +66992463954
  • Check-in time: 2 pm
  • Check-out time: 12pm

7. Southern Fried Rice

Look, it’s a very unique Phuket hostel that decides to name itself after a food product. As you’d expect, this backpacker hostel in Phuket actually serves very tasty food.

Southern Fried Rice Phuket

Presumably, there’s a rice dish on the menu that’s fried in a southern Thai style. Apart from that, what is it about this place that makes it a recommended hostel in Phuket?

Well, just being a few steps from Kata Beach, on the one hand, having unlimited hot water (rejoice all those who hate cold showers), being clean, having good common areas and being cheap.

  • Address: 100, 1415 Kata Rd, Karon, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket
  • Phone number: +66818948446
  • Check-in time: 2pm

8. The Luna Hostel

You might think that a hostel located near an airport, let alone advertised in its name, wouldn’t be an ideal place to stay. That’s where you wouldn’t think: this budget hostel in Phuket is actually incredible.

The Lunar Phuket
The outdoor common area they have is a great place to relax and chat. They have a really fun common room. The dorms are clean and comfortable, the bus travel connections are incredible.

Of course, you’re close to Phuket airport, which is great if you have an early/late flight. So there you have it: don’t judge, this is the best hostel near an airport in Phuket. Maybe the only one, but hey, it’s also close to Nai Yang beach!

  • Address: 4824+7CJ, Sakhu, Thalang District, Phuket
  • Phone number: +6676688190
  • Check-in time: 2pm
  • Check-out time: 12 pm

9. Eco hostel Phuket

Another stylish and chic backpacker hostel in Phuket? Seriously, how do they do it? Eco Hostel is simply charming and elegant.

Eco Hostel Phuket

There’s a lovely space both inside and out for a bit of work (or admin – you know how it goes on these backpacking adventures), meeting other travelers or just spending time doing nothing.

It’s really clean and the showers are pretty incredible.

This Phuket hostel also has an on-site café that’s super cute and super tasty.

It’s located in Phuket town, near the bus station. This makes it easy to get to places like Karon Beach and Kata Beach.

10. Vitamin Sea Hostel Phuket

Vitamin Sea Hostel Phuket is a hostel designed for meeting and chatting. The communal spaces make this place the prize for the best hostel for solo travelers in Phuket.


It wouldn’t be possible for this place to achieve this distinction without its incredible owner. She is literally a pro. She’s helpful, friendly, kind and generally lights this place up, as if it’s the warmest welcome every time you walk through the door. (Like 5-star friendliness!). There are also nice dorms with curtains and everything!
