Only stayed for one night but regretted not staying longer. Sood, the owner, was very friendy and seemed incredibly hard working, he did his best to help out with any question . Hostel was very clean and had a nice feel. An easy place to interact with fellow travellers. Staff very nice. I will come back when I can!

I recommend the Salsa Hostel to anyone looking for a clean, cheap, central place to stay with really helpful staff. The owner speaks great English and is very helpful. The hostel is immaculately clean, there's a wifi box on each floor, so the signal is strong in every room :) We stayed in a dorm room, which has 3 bunkbeds, and at just under £5 per night including a basic breakfast (you can pay a few baht for extras) it is really good for this money.

The hostel is clean and modern, and the communal bathroom/showers are really nice! The hostel staff are helpful and the owner helped us to rent a motorbike and took the time to show us how to find some beautiful secluded beaches. Not much going on in the city of Chumphon, but the Salsa hostel was great!

The staff were great, all spoke good English and helped us as much as possible with travel plans to the islands. Private double room was clean and well decorated with air con, tv and fridge. Couldn't have asked for a better stop over! Make sure to book through hostel world to get free breakfast, otherwise it's 80thb.

right by the train station so very convenient. Would be nice if they had seperate plugs/lights for the dorm rooms. Stayed in a 4 dorm mixed. Breakfast was also very good and staff was accomodating to our schedule.

Dear Guest, Thanks for your review but I thought that this review is not for my hostel. My hostel is not located by the train station. It is about 450m. from train station (approx 7 min walk). You were accommodated in 7-bed mixed dorm, not 4. And all of my dorm beds are equipped with private reading lights and sockets which you can clearly see it when you enter into the room. Thanks a lot for staying with us and hope to welcome you again in the near future. Rgds/Sood (Owner)
