We stayed in one of the basic fan rooms which was perfect for us. Lovely people, good restaurant (late night drinks) and pool with a jacuzzi - very reasonable for Koh Samui. Wifi only in the reception area, but lets face it - you're more likely to be on the beach or in the pool.


A great quiet place with a pool and 2 minut walk to a nice beach. We stayed in a bungalow with only a fan - i would recommed you to pay a little ekstra and get the air con room, because the rooms without can get very hot during the day and night. It is a bit far away from shopping and restaurant areas, but you can easily go there by taxi. There are only a few restaurants and shops near by.


In the north of Kof Samui the Phalarn is a beautiful place where you can relax. It is a quiet place with swimmingpool, the food is not so good but you can go outside to eat as its very cheap and you have a lot of places to choose. We got a trip in an agency and we noticed that in phalarn they get i little ungry as they also offer trips and the behaviour of the treatment decrease since that moment. The cheapest rooms has no hot water,either room service. Next time ill go to another place


Stayed for one night, fine experience. Cute bungalows around the pool, 2-minute walk via path to the beach. Restaurant was well priced and tasted good.


What a beautiful place to stay, very friendy environment, excellent staff very very clean, so great for the price!! About 20 minutes from Chaweng I found this great because you could escape the party scene to a slice of paradise! And a lone traveller very great value for money, the food is excellent, no hot water in my hut but I liked it like this!!! So refreshing after or before a hot day/ night nothing bad to say at all!

Basic bungalows near by the Mae Nam beach. Pool was great!


This hostel was small, like a prison cell small, it was definitely over priced, nothing cool to do around it, restaurants were expensive, only plus was the pool and the hot tub in it isn't warm which I didn't care to much.
