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.

The owner was very friendly and helpful.


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.


When we got to ao nang we realized that it was much more expensive than the north. VIP gives a reasonable experience for the price but it is far from the beach and touristy places. It is fine if you have lots of time to meander down but you will have a hard time getting rides back to your place. It is the same price as getting a private room in one of the backpacker hostels so you might as well enjoy the private bath. As long as you don't mind walking this place is pretty good.


Good hostel! I was happy to speak spanish with Jose Luis and his guests:) It was my best hostel for internet connection - wi-fi worked well everywhere in the hostel! People complain about the location, but this is the hostels area in AoNang and they forget about good, cheap restaurants nearby, really but really cheap fruit shops/market and it's 400m from Thai Charm Cooking School which I highly recommend! Easy to book any trip or bus, Jose is very helpful. 3beds dorm was too stifling..but clean!


Very nice hostel owner he is always trying to make things all right! A very good place to be and cheap but very good accommodation. I would defently stay again at this place!


Good hostel, clean room, friendly and helpful owner
