We stayed at Karon Living Room for 2 nights and had a great time. The price was good anyway, but got even better when they upgraded us from a dorm to a twin room! The room itself was spacious and bright, with large windows and a balcony. Most importantly: It was air-conditioned. (plus tv, fridge, safe which we didn't use) The shower had both warm and cold water. The room was overall really neat! Continental breakfast was also included (and they served fruits!). The staff was really friendly and gave us great advice on how to get around. Washing machines were available for 30 baht next door. The beach is a 20 minute walk away from the hostel, along a busy street framed by stores (mostly touristy clothes, but also food). We had a superb time there!

A fabulous location 2 minutes from beach. Owner Craig very friendly and informative. The food was delicious with everything from Thai food to traditional Irish stew! Absolutely everything you need for a great holiday at affordable prices

Absolutely lovely and super friendly staff, clean accommodations with firm comfortable beds and pillows, each day the rooms get made up 2 fresh bottles of water are included and the linen is very clean. There are laundry facilities and a water osmosis machine right outside the hotel as well which is very convenient! Also the wifi is included and has quite a strong signal and fast speed. This hotel is a little far from Karon Beach (15min walk) but this is actually very good as restaurant and souvenir prices inflate the closer you get to the beach - also there is a market Tuesdays and Friday nights at the nearby temple, a better place to pick up bargains than many of the nearby tourist trap shops. Reception are also happy to organise taxis, mini bus to the airport and answer any questions you may have with a smile. The included breakfast honestly leaves a little to be desired (bread, toaster, margarine, jam, crackers, kettle with free tea & coffee) but there's a café attached to the hotel where you can order (reasonably priced) food and also LOTS of nearby restaurants that are definitely worth investigating too. If I ever return to Karon this will definitely be the hotel I return to! 😊

We recently visited Phuket on holiday and were lucky enough to find this restaurant. Food and drinks very reasonable and enjoyable. Craig the owner is English and very helpful with any information you might need about the island. He arranged a local taxi to take us to see the whole of the island and for only £40.00 for 4 of us for a whole day was fantastic. If you do go to Phuket then definitely visit Craig

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!
