More on Patong Beach

You’re not staying in Patong to get a good night’s sleep right? Well here at the Kool hostel, you’ll most certainly not get one, and that’s sort of the point.

Travelfish says:

Found about 200 metres back from the beach and easy stumbling distance to all the bars of Bangla Road, this air-con dormitory is tucked away on the third floor of a concrete building next to the Illuzion disco. A sign at the hostel’s door advertising tequila and vodka shot specials (five for 100 baht!) is your first clue that this is a party zone. Just outside the entrance is a large covered terrace with a pool table that serves as the bar area for guests. Inside is a lobby with a big-screen TV lounge area with beanbag seats. Rooms have four to eight beds with shared hot water showers, and are kept reasonably clean. WiFi, bed linens and lockers are included. No windows in the rooms is a bit of a worry, though on the plus side, the lack of windows might help seal the rooms off somewhat from the pulsating night life all around, in the off chance you’re planning to sleep. A friendly, fun and cheap home base if you’re looking to meet fellow night owls and explore Patong’s bar scene.
