3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Absolutely the best hostel I have stayed in Asia. Super clean snd comfortable. Common space is shared with the hotel guests. The staff is just wonderful. Best place in Karon! It is located close to the beach, but not right there so there arw actually cheaper and better restautants and shops right next to the hostel/hotel.

Great husband and wife team. Best Thai food I tasted on this trip. Craig put the cartoons on TV for our 5 year old and did his best to accommodate any sport on TV. Very friendly and accomadating all round. Relaxing bar/ restaurant and definitely worth a visit . We didn't stay here, just visited several times.

I stayed here when I first arrived in Phuket. The staff were very accommodating and the check in was simple. The rooms were large, we had a large double room and there was a fridge and a bottle of water for both of us. The air con was very powerful. The price was reasonable. Couldn't fault the hotel.

Karon Living Room is one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in, and I've stayed in a lot! There are only two 4 bed dorms, one male and one female, so it's nice and chilled (for the 5 days I was there it was nearly completely empty, which I enjoyed, and it was low season after all). The beds are the nicest hostel beds I've ever slept in, large and comfy with duvets, good pillows and curtains to pull around you for privacy. The rooms have air con, each bed has a safe and a reading light with two power points(!), there are large lockers in the hall for bigger valuables, and the room even has an electric mosquito trap! The bathrooms are large and clean, with great powerful showers. I had to constantly ask for the toilet paper and soap to be replenished which was annoying, but no biggie. The breakfast is amazing - tea or coffee (which is available all day), toast, a hard boiled egg and fresh watermelon and pineapple. The hotel section of the building has a large comfortable common area and there is a massage parlour within the complex which I highly recommend - two massages in, I was sad not to go back for a third! Location wise, the beach is a ten minute walk and there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The girls at reception are adorable, particularly one young lady who speaks English and seems to be the head receptionist - absolutely terrific customer service skills. They even gave me a discounted transfer to Koh Tao through an associate. Wifi is generally excellent but occasionally erratic. I can't recommend this place enough, thank you so much! So sad to leave.

We have spent 3 nights here, although we took a double room, so it was more like a hotel for us. Very neat and tidy, the atmosphere here is great and the personel is really helpful and super friendly. Hot water, spacious rooms, good Wi-fi, tasty food and a compfortable location- it all contributes to the high rating. We definitively recommend this place.

I just stayed there for one night. (7 hours) at the 'girl hall'. The receptionist was kind and helpfull. The bed and restrooms at the hall was very clean. I liked the atmosfere and personally for me, as it was my first time staying at a hall, it was okay experience. But staying at the hall for more than one night is not recommended (I came midnight and everyone were sleeping, and I felt I was disturbing everyone... Close/walking distance to Karon Beach and shops!

Clean large room with great WiFi. Could do with more drawer space and brighter lights.Staff are very pleasant and helpful.Could do with a dip pool and sitting area.But in all good value for the price paid.Be aware it's a very noisy road in front of hotel. In conclusion it's near the centre and good value for money.

Very nice hostel, located very near to Karon and Kata Beach. Loads of nice restaurants within a short walking distance, particularly the place next door with green sign. Free tea and coffee, and a simple breakfast served in the mornings. Rooms were excellent and had a curtain that you could draw across for privacy and my bed was changed regularly. Staff very friendly and helpful, booked me a taxi for the airport in the morning :)

Living Room is a nice, if basic, great value hotel. Its well situated on the main road through Karon, only a few minutes from the beach in a car or motorbike. The signs out front dont make it easy to see so keep a keen eye out for it. The rooms are large and clean, beds are comfortable, the breakfast is ok, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Tours and motorbike rental are all available from reception. Dont come here expecting luxury, but I would definitely recommend Living Room, and Karon itself.

Stayed here for 3 weeks , the rooms are large and spacious , great bathroom and lovely room service , free water daily and free tea and coffee , nice balcony adjoining rooms , the front line staff are excellent in their line of duty and have a lovely Thai manner of expressions . Well done guys and girls.
