Great value, one of the cheaper options but couldn't fault it. No bar but there's plenty just down the road.

Air conditioner didn't work when we got there. Wifi only works in the lobby. No common area. But staff was super friendly and knowledgeable.

This is a great hostel to stay in. The staff are very friendly, the place is immaculate (cleaned every day) and its only a short 5-10 minute walk to the beach. The owners have a travel shop out the front which caters for everything. Would highly recommend staying here.

Stayed in private room, spacious and clean. Room is cleaned daily and beds made up. Close to main town and beach. Staff at reception/ travel agents really helpful - we arranged to have laundry done there and booked an excursion and onwards travel with them.

Great location, easy walk to plenty of restaurants, bars and shops! Within easy reach of the beach. Staff were great at answering any questions we had and booked a trip at the hostel too ☺

Left after first night, bathroom sink blocked/toilet not clean etc. Beds cramped, sand everywhere and zero atmosphere. Bad location in side street, pay a tiny bit more for million times better quality.

It's in a good location. Each room has an ensuite which is great and are air-conditioned and have lockers which they give you a key for. The staff where friendly but there was zero atmosphere with just the reception area to hangout. They didn't facilitate any sort of meet and greet or group fun nights which could help improve the friendliness of the place - especially if they know solo travellers are coming through.

Really nice rooms & beds in the hostel which are clearly kept very clean. Staff at reception are very friendly & helpful. The only downside to this hostel is that there is no common area to chill & meet people. This is invaluable as a solo traveller. I ended up at a hostel common area 2 doors down to meet people. If they sorted that out it would be great.

This place is amazing! Our double room was very big with a balcony and it was cleaned every day. They offer laundry, scooter rental and tours. The staff was amazing with us, we really felt like at home! Thank you so much for everything baan smile Inn :)

Good hostel in Koh Samui. Decent dorm beds with good aircon and ensuite. Staff are friendly and helpful. Hostel does not have its own cafe or bar.

Warm showers. Freezing aircon. Good beds. And everything is spotless. Compliment for the cleanness. The only thing that was to bad is that the wifi didn't reached till the second floor.other then that great hostel.They are a bit tricky to find but they are on the side road across the mercure hotel. There is also a travel agency in the hostel (instead of a hostel in the travel agency what I read in a review) recommend this for sure as it was one of the best in thailand I've been.

We had already paid for our room but the morning we left they made one of us pay again as they said we had not paid. In Asia, you cannot argue with them so we were ripped off and made to pay double!

Great hostel and great staff! The guys are really friendly and helpful. The hostel is very tidy and clean and in a great position close enough to the airport and to the nightlife. But if are not a party person takes just 10 minutes to ride on the quiet side of the island. This hostel offer you everything you need info for excursions renting of scooters and luggage locator in case the airline lose it!!! Just saying....... I'll definetly go back when ill have the chance to visit samui agai

The hostel itself is in a good location. Just down the side street and a 10 minute walk from the hustle and bustle. The bedroom is a good size and even better for me as I had the room to myself. The bathroom is very large one of the best sizes iv seen however the shower plug hole was disgusting and needs looking at.

Nicest and most helpful staff we've met whilst travelling Thailand. Clean rooms and bathroom. About 15 mins walk to main party area but straight up one road so it's easy. 5 min walk to beach. A quiet hostel with no common area so we didn't really make any friends but would go back anyway as got our well needed sleep after heavy nights or long active days.

Quite far from the centre. Bathroom was very unclean. WiFi only in lobby. Staff are great
