We found bed bugs in our room at 2 am. After looking for staff for awhile we found a hotel nearby with room for the same price as AKWA. In the morning before check-out we came back and tried asking for a refund for the 2 nights we had left of the booking. We were laughed at by staff and turned down by the manager via phone. Later they responded our TripAdvisor review claiming to not having found bed bugs, despite us leaving one in a glass there. So I recommend against staying here.

The hostel is clean and comfortable. It is situated very close to the city center. The room is nice and the owner also. He provided us with useful info. The beach near hostel (app 200 m away) is really beautiful with white sand. The only thing I felt bad about this hostel was its security as it has no real receptionist for 24h and when you leave your key in the afternoon and you come back to room early in the morning after a night out noone is taking care of your key and anyone can take it.

Very nice Hostel. I liked the funky rooms :)
Much better than we expected for the 400THB we paid each per night, the room is nice, comfortable and clean. It is slightly worn in places but for the price it's good and the atmosphere and cheerfulness of the place more than make up for the patchy paintwork!! The staff are very friendly and more than happy to help you arrange trips and transport. They were very accommodating to us when we decide to stay much longer than intended and we loved every minute. Would definitely recommend the place!!
Rooms were nice and clean. They were cleaned everyday. However, one day i have found one inch long insect in the bathroom.
We really enjoyed our stay at the AKWA. We liked that the beach was close to the house and the possibility to chill on the couches at the bar/restaurant in the evening. And they have an AWESOME coffee (illy coffee). ;-)
Cute place, really quirky colourful decor and nice big rooms. The rooms are in a different building to the restaurant and reception making security a little worse but there is a safe in the room. Good location, only a few mins walk from the beach and town centre.
