Super nice staff, very helpful and kind. The hostel is very cheap for a good room with everything you need. This is in the main downtown road...perfect for shopping and just 5 min walk from the pier! Catfish is a good restaurant near the water, and good for breakfast (just 7 min walk from this hostel). The most beautiful beach (Long beach) is a little far from the hostel however you can take a tuk tuk for a cheap fee (10 min taxi).
This hostel is in a great area. It's near the walking street (although quite small) and the pier. It's a great spot as a base to explore the island. The rooms are simple and clean. There's only one restroom per floor, however there are a small number of rooms on each floor so it isn't too much of problem The owners are so amazing and friendly. They helped me a lot while I was there.
Booked for 2 nights, decided to stay for a week. Excellent staff, nicely decorated and comfortable room (fan), toster and plates/cutlery, fridge for guests to use, which proved very useful for eating food bought from the market close by. Beach within walking distance (well, depends on your definition of walking distance, was ok for us). Bicycles could be rented for 50 baht a day, they are quite old, but serving the purpose. However, the walls were very thin, you'll have to be a bit more quiet.
We stayed 4nights and we don't have any complaints! Two small things but nothing big, the bedroom walls being a little thin and the bathroom a bit small (shower,toilet and a urinal all in one). Good location, the owner and his wife were very welcoming and pleasant. They recommended we visit the travel desk right across from the hostel and the lady there gave some bargains on travel&tours. She also let us leave our luggage with her as the hostel does not. It was a good place for a short stay.
The only downfalls of this place are that there is one bathroom/shower (same room) per floor of 4 rooms. This meant that there were 8 people fighting over the bathroom/shower at the same time. If you plan on having the "runs" or have anywhere to be, I wouldn't recommend staying here. However the rooms are with a/c and have comfy clean beds. Your call of what's more important!
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend. Only small downsides were the rooms are very dark and windowless, and the beach isn't close, however bicycles are provided which is great
