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!

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.

Nice hostel. Great room. Clean with good ac. Little bit out of town. But otherwise good.

No common area. Koh Samui is not really a backpacker island. This hostel was clean and near the strip. Over all I was happy with it.

The bed was comfy enough and the shower was warm. The wifi doesn't stretch beyond the lobby, so if you're on the 4th floor like I was, you will not be using wifi whilst staying here, except from when you go downstairs, and even then it was very patchy.

No wifi in the dorm

Good spot , close to the beach and most important you meet a lot of people which equal good nights out in the town. Would book again.

Hostel was decent. Walk home from the main beach bars took a long time, maybe 30 mins. The lack of social atmosphere was the main complaint for this hostel. Everyone kept to themselves a lot. Also no fridge or kitchen.

As far as hostels go; this place is great. The rooms are well air conditioned and the rooms were kept very clean. Location wise, it's centre to all the bars so i wouldn't recommend it if you want many quiet early nights although that will depend on your roommates. The rooms all have locks and everyone is provided with a small locker. I actually didnt use that and all of my stuff was completely safe. Staff are brilliant and happy to help at all times.

Very large hostel in the main area of Samui. Clean rooms with towels and bathrooms inside, comfortable beds and good area for socialising. Lots of restaurants and booking companies near by. Recommend booking 2-3 nights, was full when I was here!

Staff would not give any help with directions. They wanted me to take their taxi everywhere when the location was close by.
