The place is at the North end of chaweng beach which you basically cross the road to get to. You should be able to get a decent night's rest here and the party strip is a 50 baht trip away in a red taxi. So unless you aim to only get wasted and not leave the strip, the location is great as you should be out exploring! Staff are lovely and can organise trips and transport including pickup from the hostel to the ferry, at competitive rates. Secure building with small lockers. Basic bathrooms.

Cute little hostel not far from all the bars and shopping. Super clean and there is lockers in every room. Free WiFi and it even works in your room. And all the rooms have aircon. One night the dorms were full so we got a twin private for the same price. The owner is very sweet and made us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend people to stay here.

The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The location was only a ten minute walk to the night life and across the road from the beach. Shower was weak but what can you expect from a backpackers? Definitely not a party backpacker vibe, no common room to meet people but if you have company that doesn't matter.

Good place for a nights sleep, not much else. Showers were cold. Good aircon in the room though, and the staff were friendly and accommodating! The main lady has great English

We stayed here for 2 nights and were greeted by the owner when we arrived. She was so nice and very helpful when we booked a day trip and she organised our boat for us cheaper than the one we had planned. It is around a 10-15 minute walk to main strip and nightlife. Rooms were nice and cool and clean. Would definitely stay here again!

Very good location, about a 10 minute walk to the Main Street. The staff are so friendly, helpful, gave us amazing deals for further travel and car rental. Probably the cheapest place in the area; very good value for money in regards to how clean and how nice the bed was. Negatives I would say it doesn't have a great social area and is quite small so we didn't meet any other backpackers really however, this could have been due to low season. I would recommend, maybe not for solo travellers.

An amazing place to stay. Only a 10-15 minute walk from main strip and beach. Jiggy was extremely helpful with organising tours and transfers to Phuket. Ended up staying twice and recommended to other travellers.

Staff were excellant but very poor and basic facilities. 4 bed dorm was very very cramped. Stepping over luggage. Only one shower and toilet for 2 four bed dorms and it was together in same room so always had to wait. Staff did say could use the one on the next floor but that shower was a trickle. Ok place if you want very basic. No facilities to mix and meet people.

Very clean hostel and friendly staffs. Just one minute walk to the beach and five minutes to downtown. Would stay here again once going back to Samui.
