We enjoyed our stay at Baan Smile. The location was great for access to the beach. A bit far from the nightlife. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is no real common area so there was little social atmosphere. Would recommend.

Spent 3 nights here, really nice staff, nice reception area, rooms are basic, could do with some paint/TLC but fine for the money, clean, no complaints! Really close to the beaches. We unfortunately got caught in flooding in the village- we had booked a tour through the hotel to get us to Kuala Lumpur, however we were not picked up and would suggest it wise to have better contact with customers having woken up at 5am with a flight to get with no communication at all!

Good location close to the beach and the main strip with the bars and restaurants. The staff are really helpful and give you discounts on tours and such. Beds are comfy and the showers are nice. We found that our doors didn't close properly so we did have ants and Mosquitos in our room, but if you can live with that then it's a good spot to be. Only real downside is that there is no common room.

Not a bad place to stay the night. Didn't meat many people staying here, but it might have been slow season. The staff is super friendly and happy to assist you with tours and travel. The AC is great and the beds are comfy. Location was great, easy walk to the beach or markets. Overall, great bang for your buck.

Basic but has everything you need. Really close to Khao San road. The hostel can organise trips and buses for you. Beds were OK. Air con was good. The only thing that I didn't like was the fact all windows and doors are open while air con is off (obv to air it all out) but it means loads of mosquitos come in and then when you sleep you're bitten a lot (or atleast I was). Mario is a cool guy too!

Perfect location for backpackers. Within walking distance to great bars and a food court with a huge variety of food. Good AC in rooms, sheets changed every day. Staff were overall really helpful, sorted out day trips for us with discount, provided a good laundry service. They also gave us towels which weren't included in the price, when ours were soaked from activities that day. Although wifi didn't quite reach the room at times!

Wonderful hostel. Rooms are very clean, secure, and bed sheets changed daily. Good location and staff are very helpful. They also work as a tour operator so you can book trips through them.
