Good place, but a little bit far from the beach.
The room that we'd booked wasn't ready, so we were offered another room with separate beds with no windows. We told him we'd prefer the double bed that we ordered, so we were given a room in the hostel next door instead (3 bees guesthouse). Clean room, comfy bed, but weak shower. Although the hostel description states that it's 5 mins from the beach & main town area, this refers to a 100 baht tuk tuk ride each way. I'd recommend a hostel in town at a similar price to save tuk tuk money and time!
Jose, the owner is a very friendy and helpful guy. Hes got a really good knowledge of the area and can book tours. Sometimes he can get a discount on the price so always good to check with him. The sound carries in the building so you will hear people coming in late unless they are quiet.
We booked a Private Room for 3 people and when we arrived the owner told us that the Hostelworld description was wrong and it was not his responsability (he blamed Hostelworld). The 3 of us not only sleep in separate rooms but also one of us had to go to a different Hostel because there wasn`t a third bed available in the one we booked. Although it was late at night, his only solution was tell us to go to another place. For the same price and location you will find better options.
Jose Luis and all the staff was very helpful in any moment in our stay at VIP providing us recommendations about trips and things to do at Aonang. Would recommend anyone go to this hostel

Overall a nice place and a charming owner ) Generally in Ao Nang there are not many places to stay, and they were all fully booked for the New Year. Dorm room that we had to stay in had no windows, was very small, had conditioner that was blowing right in my face, and if we turned it off it was hot as hell. Beds were also really hard. But I assume the other rooms were nicer. And the place is immaculately clean, I appreciated it.
