Stayed here twice. First experience was excellent. Great room, air con and shower. Second time we were in an incredibly hot and humid room. Had a terrible nights sleep. So if you're lucky it's a great hostel!

We booked at 12am after getting off the plane, and we realised we booked the wrong date as well in the rush, but the staff checked us in and got us a lovely room, aircon was brilliant and it was a great location. The Staff was so friendly! We were only there a night before traveling to Koh phangan but we will be back to stay on our way through!

Staff friendly and helpful, and good location also I met fellow single travellers here so this was good. However 1 bathroom ensuite to 8 person dorm wasn't ideal, no bar and a little dated.

The lady who runs the hostel is hilarious! Made us feel very welcome. Wifi good in communal areas but not so good in the rooms. 10 minute walk from central night life. Five minutes from the beach.

Very clean hostel with everything we needed, wifi didn't reach the dorm but other than that couldn't fault it, would definitely recommend

Really enjoyed my stay here. They've got a fantastic communal area that turns into a bit of a communal drinking spot. I met some really lovely people here. Dorms are good with private small lockers next to each bunk (only expect to fit a camera and your valuables in here). Wifi is only available in the communal area. Good location. Super friendly and nice owner. MAKE SURE YOU GET AN AC ROOM - the fan room was painful.

A good sociable hostel.

We had a private twin room which was species, clean and had aircon and a bar fridge. Facilities are good - wifi is good - you can rent scooters right across the road, close to a main road with lots of restaurants, the busy touristy bars are a short taxi or scooter ride away. Staff friendly

Really enjoyed the atmosphere here. Facilities were all cleaned regularly and the staff was very nice. Bit of a walk to the main bar hub but doable. Only real downside was the WiFi in the dorm rooms wasn't very good

the rooms are really good but the best part is the chill out room where every night lots of people get together and have a good time till all hours!

We didn't get what we'd reserved, but the rooms were nice: comfy bed and a safe available.

I thought the hostel was okay. Nothing special. A little less clean than I was hoping for, but that might be expected for such a packed room. There is a cafe/restaurant just next door with pretty good food and not too expensive. There wasn't a whole lot of interaction between the hostelers. Overall a decent hostel. Pretty close to the center of the small town area, but on the other side of the island from the port (like 30 minute drive). Decent bars on the street. Decent shops.

Nice hostel, definitely a bit of a party vibe here, but overall had a very good experience.

The room we stayed in had blocked drains, so smelt awful and had no sink. So to brush our teeth we had to go to another toilet. We booked a fan room but i think others should get an aircon one for an extra 100bhart and the common area is good for socialising but could do with aircon as got so hot but was only place for wifi use too.

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!
