We are located on the third floor of the Ocean Bangla Department Store building.

FROM THE PHUKET INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

OPTION # 1
The most cost effective way is to hop on an airport mini-bus. The price will cost approximately 200 Baht. The mini-bus departs from the DEPARTURE level. Kool Backpacker Hostel is located on the third floor of the Ocean Bangla Department Store building.

OPTION # 2
You could opt for a limousine transfer both shared and private - this is expensive and in our opinion not worth the price. Furthermore as the driver is on commission from the shops etc, he will endeavour to sell you products and services on route - so be prepared to be seriously hassled (sometimes frustratingly so). Please remember to be firm but not rude!

FROM ANY FERRY PORT OR CENTRAL BUS STATION

You can catch a local bus, Tuk Tuk or Motorbike Taxi. Prices will vary.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like more information regarding directions to the hostel.
