I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. Nice and helpful staff. The dorms were cleaned every day, had aircon and nice beds with their own lights and sockets. They have a big common room with tables and benches where it is easy to get to know new people.

A friend of ours recommend this hostel at first we was a little taken back with there not being an aircon in one of the dorms, but we changed to a private room instead where we had the most amazing stay! The room was clean had a balcony and most of all had air conditioning! The staff absolutely made it for us as they were very welcoming and lovely and always happy to help! The lol told the hostel is about 5-7 mins away from the beach to!

Great atmosphere at this hostel, we met loads of friends who we continued to travel with for weeks after Samui. Also, the comfiest beds we had in any hostels of this price range. I'd definitely go back!

Absolutely fuming after our stay here. 2000 Baht & Go Pro stolen from a locked locker... Heard of other people's valuables getting stolen too.

The receptionist was very nice and we had a good time in Samui hostel. For Partytigers maybe not the best option, because the main party zone is about 10minutes taxi drive away. But if you want to have a relaxed time and a very nice beach this is the place to be. Also cool restaurants around :)

The staff were great, very friendly and helpful.. Helped to suggest and book tours either on the island or boat tours to the marinas, with pick up/ drop offs at the hostel it made it very convenient. The hostel itself was very clean, comfy beds and lockers. Wasn't a great deal of space to leave your rucksack though. It was also a bit far away from the main nightlife but it is accessible so good if you want a night out but a place to chill too.

It is a bit of a far walk (but totally doable) from the main-bar hub. 5 minute walk from the beach, the staff (especially the small woman who worked in the mornings) were great! There is a room in the hostel on the main level open to the road that at night fills up with backpackers all looking for a good time. Loved the atmosphere.

Really sociable hostel with common area downstairs great for meeting people and going out. A bit of a walk to the main bars but other than that a good place to stay.

The lady running reception (who's name I sadly never caught) is a gem! so sweet and helpful. The Wi-Fi is a bit crummy only in common areas and not good when lots of ppl are on it. Near to nice quiet part of Chaweng beach tho (just cut through a resort) and enough restaurants and the night food court. long walk/short drive from hard tho. Good atmosphere! everyone in common room. and very clean! Nice stay :)

Dorms are very nice, ensuite too, bathroom wasn't cleaned daily though, which is definitely needed when near a beach. Nice common area but beware of the mozzies!! Also we booked a boat/bus with this hostel to krabi and they rooted through our bags and took things from one of our bags, unbelievable! We've been travelling for 8 months in South America and South East Asia and this is the only time that's happened, it was also a very dodgy company with the rest of the journey, book elsewhere!

Great value for money although I would recommend paying the extra for an air con room. Staff were friendly. Rooms nice and clean. Great atmosphere in the lounge area downstairs, a lot of people drinking there before heading out. Well there was when we were there.

A nice place to hang out. The beach is 5 minutes walk. Be sure to book a dorm with AC it's the best option. The owner is there all the time and she's very helpful and very smiling. If you leave early in the morning make sure to get your deposit back for the key before reception closes the day before.

The staff were lovely and they were always happy to give advice and information about various things - activities, trsnsport, washing etc - aswell as book them for you. It was right next to the beach as well as very nesr to a bunch of bars and restaurants. There's a scooter hire place opposite as well. The only downfall was the wifi which was a bit touch and go. Would definitely recommend though!

Good hostel, clean, friendly staff. Maybe a bit far from the 'party center'.

The staff make this hostel, however the room always smelt a bit due to the drainage. There was also a lot of Mosquitos in the room. Was cheap though.
