The hostel felt quite dirty and in my room I even encountered stuff from previous guests. The downstairs toilet is unfinished, a complete mes.


The dorms were really good, the beds were comfortable and the rooms had air con. Each person in the dorm had a small locker to secure valuables which was good. The common area downstairs was a great place to meet people and have a few drinks in the evening. The staff were friendly but the reception area was separate to the hostel. I know a lot of people who have stayed here and everyone enjoyed their stay, I would stay again.


Great hostel, location is about 20min walking from the main bars at the beach, which is quite good because you can have a good night of sleep! Good common area where you can bring your own booze/food! Rooms have their own private bathroom! Would stay here again


Way too hot in the room!


The bathrooms were pretty grim and the room was a little mouldy and damp, but was close to the main strip and the communal area was a decent size with good wifi (however you couldn't get wifi in your room), but you could bring your own booze in and when it's busy there is a good atmosphere.


Myself and a friend really enjoyed our stay here! The beds are really comfy and well designed with a built in shelf, reading light and power socket. Location is good as well, nice and close to the beach and some good shops and restaurants. Only downside is the staff don't speak much English and there isn't really much of an atmosphere - just a common room downstairs that everyone uses for the wifi. Overall a good stay!


Good facilities, each bed had its own socket, light and locker. No bar, but there was a common area where you could socialise and bring your own food and drink. A taxi journey from strip of bars and clubs, but still a good location for food and that. Very clean and great value for money so very happy with the hostel overall!


The room was noy cleaned after 17 i asked for it a couple of times. There was no water. The rooms were dark and niet clean Not a really good stay there for me

The staff at samui hostel were the best. They cleaned up the mess every morning without any complaints. If your looking for a party hostel, this is the one. If not I'd go elsewhere.


The communal area is nice but the room (6 bed dorm) was really damp, no windows and it stunk. There was a worm in the shower and we were really glad to be leaving after 1 night.


really sociable hostel! The women that works the desk is also so lovely, not the cleanest but it is very cheap so for how it is it's very good. Wifis alright aswell but doesn't work in the rooms


Stayed 1 night and and left because i didnt like it so much... But it maybe worth the price


This hostel smelled like mould, the staff were not very friendly and definitely looking to book at the highest price unless you showed them an online price for much lower. The location wasn't terrible or great, bit of a walk everywhere, they charge you to use their phone for local calls, no social atmosphere at all and no comfortable social area to meet and chat with other travellers. I would not stay here again, I would not recommend anyone else do either.


Wi-fi didn't work in the rooms, and were overall pretty slow. Otherwise nice hostel on the mainroad of chaweng, bathroom cleaned every day. Okey to stay in for a few nights but not for a long stay


No wifi in the room, very hot room, one fan for all the room wasn't enough.


Good location, lovely staff, great atmosphere :)


Very basic hostel with air con in rooms and ensuite bathroom. The hostel is very tired and generally not very clean. Could do with a good clean and a lick of paint. Does not have many facilities, only a common room with benches. Location is just off main road and 10 minute walk to the beach. Hostel is fine to just sleep in but don't expect much else!


Room smelled so bad I couldn't sleep. Dirty, beer bottles everywhere even in the room which I pointed out to staff when I checked in. Aircon freezing. Blanket/sheet is an extra big towel. Mosquitoes all in the open common area downstairs. Poor WiFi even in common area. Far walk from main area of town.


Nice cheep place to stay, helpfull staff, good atmosphere which can be a bit loud & if your not on the top floor you may find it hard to sleep but locations great, overall good value for money


Ver nice time! Staff are so nice and the place is awesomeawesome! I really liked it and would come back for sure!
