Great place to stay. I booked a double room for myself and it was very good value for the money. This place is a 10 - 15 minute walk to the beach.
The restaurant served breakfast but didn't open until after 10.30 which was a bit late. Two out of three mornings there were no toiletpaper. A bit frustrating when the restaurant/reception is closed
I had a good stay in Embassy lakeview hostel, the staff is very friendly and helpful and you can have a taste of a real Italian cuisine for cheap price. I definitely recommend it!
We've stayed there for four nights and it was perfect for what it was. Cheap and clean and good location. The owner is really nice and food there was really good! Try the pasta! I mean for the price you pay it was really gpod value and right by the beach and main street!
Embassy lake was a really lovely place to stay, perfect for what we had planned. Lovely, warm welcome and the food in the restaurant was lovely as well! Just a short walk to the shops and beach. Would definitely go back.

I tried twice to stay here and both times our booking was not honored. We booked with Agota the first time and then made our way via minibus and ferry only to find out our room was overbooked on arrival. The owner found us another hotel to stay at. After 2 nights we decided to book Embassy Lakeview again for our next 2 nights. In the morning we checked out and were heading over when I checked my email and AGAIN our reservation was overbooked. I wouldn't trust an online booking here again.

The rooms were extremely clean (kept up daily) and the bathroom/dining facilities were stellar! Reasonably priced shakes/juices--never tried the food. The hostel is a 10 minute walk from the Chaweng Beach and right across from the Lake (a nice place for running/stretching your legs). Its also right next door to a questionable massage parlor, so be warned. Their dog is adorable, and the staff was always very friendly/happy to help out. Overall, would recommend, especially since the price is right
The best value for money we have had on our trip so far. Luigi really cares about his guests and cooks really tasty, affordable food. The road outside can be quite noisy but wasn't an issue for us. Will definitely stay here again.
Luigi (the owner) was great, immediately emailing me to confirm my booking and provide directions to the location. His attached restaurant is also a great value and has very delicious food. A great value and a great place to stay in Samui!
Good location close to everything you need. Clean rooms, friendly helpful staff and good price - all round pleased with this choice.
Really enjoyed our stay thanks to Luigi and staff, and not forgetting Lulu the puppy. Luigi was extremely friendly and helpful and the food at the restaurant was good value for money. We really liked the location as it is close to the main strip and the beach but located far enough away to get a decent nights sleep.
