I originally booked only 3 nights 12 beds dormitory but end up staying a week now. The place is literally 1 min walking distance from the beautiful beach. There's a pool and common area you can either chill out or have fun with the others in the hostel. The manager, Jaquin is the best host I've ever met so far. He always makes sure we're all happy and feel at home. He's also very helpful with all the information you need about the island. Thanks to him and the rest of the crews :))


Awesome location next to the beach, also pretty close to the city center. The pool was nice and everyone staying there was very friendly. Great value for your money.


Big thanks to Joaquin for the warm welcome and fun times during my one week stay. There were almost no other guests when i was there (on the whole island actually), but this was still without doubt the best choice for accommodation. My only warning for the next guests in villa4: jacuzzi may contain Finnish girls and/or snake.


There were 6 of us that stayed here over the full moon period and loved it! Really chill atmosphere but great because the actual hostel is right across the street when you want to party. Bathrooms were cleaned daily and beds were comfy too!! Joaquin works the bar daily and is always around to help out which was awesome

I really recommend this hostel. Nice Pool and the Bar is directly next to it. The Room was nice, Big and clean. Joaquin is very helpfull and friendly. Its the perfect Hostel to meet People and to do something together during the Day. And if you still dont have enouhg People Around you, you can go to the hard Road Café what is just a 5 minute Walk from the Villa and there are even More People :) I stayed there over One week for the Full Moon Party and i really enjoyed my stay there!!


Very good hostel! I stayed there last november and at first I arrived at the Hard Road Cafe, which is 200m away from the Hard Road Villa. They gave me a ride to the Villa where I was also welcomed with open arms. The staff is really nice! I stayed in the bigger villa with six beds, which was beautiful and really hotel-like. It's easy to go to the Hard Road Cafe for a good party and drinks, but when you want a more quiet place, the Villa is a good place for a nap. Would definitely stay again!


We had an amazing time staying in Hard Road Villas! At first we thought the hostel was better, but the Villas are so much better. Quieter, more laidback atmosphere, but still social and I think easier to get to know people. Joaquin is brilliant, he made us all hang out, did amazing breakfast (croissants with nutella) and was just great. So happy we decided to stay here, let us know when you start your hostel, Joaquin!

Great location 5 mins walk to the beach! Beautiful place that looks more like an all inclusive with the pool area. Staff were super nice and helpful. There was only 4 ppl there when I stayed (low season) it could be an awesome atmosphere with more people! Also Hard Road down the road is an option to hang out with lots of people! Great 50-60bhat resto just down the road... Such great food!
