If you’re looking for a fantastic tropical destination, you may want to visit Phuket. The island offers stunning natural beauty, golden beaches, lively nightlife, delicious food, and interesting culture, making it a dreamy location for many travellers. A perfect trip requires the perfect place to stay, but Phuket is well-known as one of the most expensive places to visit in Thailand, so can you travel to the island on a budget? Thankfully, although Phuket has transformed into a pricey destination, it’s still dotted with excellent budget hostels.

If you’re looking for a real bang for your buck, this list is for you! Here are 5 of the top hostels in Phuket for a wonderful, budget-friendly holiday.

Best Hostels in Phuket for 2021

1. Vitamin Sea Hostel

Situated near Phuket Old Town in a refurbished shophouse turned hostel, the name ‘Vitamin Sea’ might be a bit misleading because it’s far from the ocean. Nevertheless, it’s still one of the best hostels in Phuket, and it does have a nautical vibe, thanks to its bright and clean design. Due to its location, it’s an excellent choice if you want to explore the Old Town, Phuket Walking Street, or the lively markets of Phuket Town.

Vitamin Sea Hostel offers basic mixed and female-only dorms. However, if you need more privacy, there are also private rooms. The living areas on the ground floor, including the mezzanine above the lobby, are great to relax and meet other travellers. The hostel is possibly one of the most affordable in Phuket. The best thing is, you get basic breakfast and self-serve coffee and tea included in the price!

Pricing: Start from approx. 199 Baht to 586 Baht per night.

Address: 54/8 Montri Rd., Talad Yai, Muang, Phuket, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000.
