As far as location is concerned, it's not the best takes about a 40 min walk to get to Fisherman's Village & 20 min to get to the Big Buddha. However, Samui Backpackers is a very nice hostel, comfortable, clean and had all right wifi. If you don't mind being more secluded, it's great (& it has a pool!).

There were no keys for the dorms, so the door was always left open.

Perfect for socialising and chilling. Free pool table, pool and ping pong. It's the perfect place to make new friends. Although not in a popular area taxis are handy and there is a coffee shop right at the end which does amazing breakfasts.

Great pool! The location however is now the best. There is a beach at walking distance but that is pretty much it... they put urinal beans in showers and bathrooms...the smell is not great...

This is a lovely place but sadly it just has no atmosphere, my friend and I were put in a 20ish bed dorm and there was only us and one other woman in her 40s.... The pool was out of order as it had turned green. The member of staff on duty was lovely, just unlucky that there was no one else around. We ended up checking out early and losing the money for the other days. Would recommend to a bigger group of travellers but if alone, I would avoid.

The lockers weren't huge and anyone could walk in and out of your room as there wasn't always someone at the front desk. And they keep the AC off from 1-6 to "freshen up the room" but all it does it cause it to smell and everyone to sweat. Good location- near a beach and not far from nightlife; about a 5 minute drive. Super comfy beds!! Loved this hostel.

Great hostel, rooms were air conditioned all the time which was so nice. Bathrooms were nice as well. Pool was nice as it was very hot. Not much security but honestly you don't need it. Good location and ferry company provided transfer to pier so that was helpful. Overall a good hostel and very cheap, id stay again.

Very nice hostel. Everything is perfectly cleant. Rooms have alot of space. Pool, ping pong and pool table are there to keep you occupied. Near the pier to koh phanghang. Would totally recommand for a little stay on koh samui!

Dorm room, showers and toilets are all very good, new looking & clean albeit you can't sit up straight in the bottom bunks as the gap is too small for anyone over 5ft4. Young lady at reception clearly isn't client focused as i have never met such a disinterested person working in this arena. Tried to book a scooter at 8:20am and was told by another staff member to look outside even though they advertised scooter etc for hire! Clearly not customer focused. There is not much happening locally.
