Stayed here for one night. Nice quiet location, about 10-15 minutes walk to the beach. Booked a minivan ticket to the airport in the afternoon through them and paid for it only to be told the following morning that minivan wasn't available and that I have to take a cab. The owner was nice enough to help pay part of the cab fare so thankful for that.


This hostel is truly gem. The location is excellent as it is no more than a 10 min walk from two different beaches. The rooms are clean, the restaurant downstairs is excellent , and owner is an impressive chess player :-D. This place also has the best Mai Tai in Thailand (in my opinion). I ought to know since I have had more than my fair share of Mai Tais in Thailand... XD


Nice quiet guesthouse, clean and spacious room. Good location in the quiet corner but near retaurants and short walk to the beach. Very well run place! Boss is around almost all the time and always helping and giving advices if needed. One of the best run places we have visited. Would definitely stay there again.

Although the Kata/Karon beach area was too touristy for our liking, this hostel was in a great spot near shopping areas, restaurants, and most importantly, the beach. Being peak season, the rooms and food were a little pricey for us, but still very reasonable compared to other places nearby. Great food and very friendly staff. They have beach towels for guests, books you can borrow and motorbikes to rent. Rooms were clean and comfortable as well.


Rooms were lovely and clean and everyone was really helpful towards us. We were made to feel extremely welcome and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

very friendly staff. nice owner. Rooms are spacious and the wifi works perfectly. close to the beach and several shops we have great fun here


We loved this place!! Very nice and extremely clean with free water in your room!! Only a 10 min walk from Kata beach and tons of restaurants and bars nearby. They also have a great restaurant at the guesthouse that I would definitely recommend. The best part was the owner himself we got the chance to chat with him for a bit at the end and he really cares about you having a great stay and will do whatever he can to make it that way! They will also book trips/ferry for you at a cheap price!
