Place was deserted. Could have been the location or low season or too early in the lead up to the full moon. Place was decent enough, though the pool looked really cloudy to the point I didn't bother swimming. Restaurant and bars were closed by 10 PM, though this could have also been due to low occupancy. I'd give it another chance at full occupancy, but other than that, I'd pass.
Great atmosphere, really helpful staff. Not far from the boat pier, 15-20 minute taxi ride to/from Haad Rin beach.
Really enjoyed my stay, pool area is brilliant, food is delicious in restaurant, staff are helpful as is the motorcycle rental service. Great location to travel into full moon party, hostel provides a return taxi on the night which is brilliant. Altogether, really enjoyable stay and glad we stayed as long as we did.

Excellent hostel, beautiful beachside pool with great view of Koh samui. Booked a bed in the large dorm but was upgraded to beachside bungalow which was great. Occupation was very low, therefore not a very social vibe going on. The recepionist explained this was due to it not being a full moon week. The place is great though, would recommend!
The rooms are clean, however the shower wasn't that good, there wasn't any water coming out so it was almost impossible to wash your hair. Furthermore the atmosphere was really good. Friendly staff, music and a great and clean swimming pool. It is around 15 min from Haad rin which was also good to do. Close to a huge supermarket. I would reccomend it to others.
The staff were great make you feel right at home and really cool down to earth guys.. But Our Air con didn't work the whole time we were there, the rooms were extremely messy, the location was far from everything, food was over priced, Only English people stayed there. If you want to be away from everything during full moon stay there, but if you want to have a more open area I would recommend somewhere else.

Great place to stay and fantastic for meeting people.Prices sky rocket for Full Moon just like everywhere else on the island. Staff weren't especially helpful and cleaners would choose the most inappropriate times to clean the dorms. Air con was sporadic at best. The pool is great, the food is good and the beach side location couldn't be better. Quite a community feel and good for solo travellers. Ended up travelling on with people I met here for the next two weeks.
