Three months in Asia and I have never been more disappointed with a hostel and its staff. Very unfriendly welcome, we were shown the room, beds weren't made so it was unclear which beds were ours. On the second night (10pm) we were aggressively ordered to pay 1800 baht for beds we hadn't even used. It was a real confrontation-get out or pay there was shouting and after much deliberation we payed a little less, we were given no warning, despite them having all day to tell us. Don't stay here!!

Horrible horrible place!!!!! Don't go near it! Got a towel full of ants, didn't see it so they bit me after my shower( which was bad as well), told the girl in the reception and she laughed, didn't apologize or nothing. Asked for my money back cause I wanted to leave, she yelled at me and cursed me down the street as I left. Do yourselves a favor and don't go!!!

The location of this hostel is amazing. It's a quick 5 minute walk to the beach and Ark Bar and steps away from so many shops and restaurants. The hostel isn't fancy but it has everything you need. A clean bed, a washroom (a little tight with 12 people sharing one washroom but you figure it out), a locker, a small common room and laundry. The staff wasn't particularly helpful (we asked the front desk lady to call us a taxi and she couldn't understand us) but we enjoyed our stay immensely!

The hostel could use some new fans..some beds are completely below AC while others are completely neglected by it. Would be nice if they could add soaps to the washrooms. The sitting areas could improve a little, the current ones are really small and too close to dorms, making it noisy if we sit there. Staff is polite though, given the amount of inconvenience we caused :)

Very basic hostel, but a perfect location if looking to enjoy all the benefits of Chewang beach. Within walking distance of Ark Bar and other beach parties. My friend and I spent 3 days here over New Years and had a great time. Would definitely stay again! But mostly for location only, all other facilities were pretty basic.
