Cheap and cheerful dorm retreat
Our top hostel pick for Patong! Newly opened in early 2015, this friendly little place is right in the thick of Patong’s busy beach and nightlife zone, but once you step inside its cosy interior you’re well buffered from the mad outside world.
Rooms are air-con, bunk-bed dormitory style, with a choice of four beds or, for a cheaper price, eight beds. The rooms and shared bathrooms are tidy and clean, and the hot water showers are fancier than you’d expect to see in a dorm. The lobby is an inviting gathering spot with a dining table, cool wrought iron sofa, a bar set along the window overlooking the street, flat-screen TV and plenty of Thai triangle cushions strewn around the wooden floor. Wooden cabinets between some of the bunk beds and privacy curtains are a nice touch, too. Though it’s pricier than other hostels in Patong, Lupta’s handy location and warm atmosphere might convince you to shell out a bit more. WiFi is included. High season rates were not yet set when we visited, but expect to pay at least 100 baht per night more from November through April. Discounts are offered for longer stays. If you’re on a tight budget, the cheaper Patong Backpacker Hostel is just steps away.
