I would recommend this hostel only as a stop off point between islands. It's location to the airport and the pier was the reason I stayed here (twice), but other than that the only plus is that you're right on the beach. The location (other than the beach and pier) is really bad. The wifi only worked for us outside the room on the patio. The air conditioner worked really well. Apple was the one mostly running the place. She was friendly enough and her English was good.

We loved staying here. We had a private beach bungalow and was right on the beach. The location was perfect. Only a 10 minute taxi ride into chewang so when it was time to come home we was away from all the noise of the bars. The owners were extremely helpful and booked all our excursions and boat ride to Koh Tao for us. We felt very welcomed and was sad to leave. Being right on the beach was such a highlight!

The most perfect place you could ever dream of! We have travelled asia and this beats all accomdation ever! The owners are the nicest people that live at the end house, also there to help with anything. Everyone was so friendly, the beach is right there, you can rent a ped opposite, there are shops and resturants there but out of the super tourist area which is perfect! I couldn't give this place a better rating if I tried, we really reccommend it to everyone! Thank you guys so much ❤️

Great for a quick overnight stop before heading on to the islands. This isn't the best area in koh samui but is near the pier so was handy for us. The dead cockroach in our room wasn't the best welcome though!

Stayed here twice in a month, lovely quite place right on the beach. Owners are lovely- really helpful and friendly. Ideal spot for getting boat to Koh Phangan and also handy for the airport. Lovely French place across the road to get breakfast in the morning, close to 7-11, banks, currency exchange, pharmacy etc. Highly recommend.

Stayed here the second time within a month. Again it is the perfect quiet and relaxing place right next to the beach.

This place sits on a nice slow beach, and is small, so that keeps things on the quiet side. The owners are really friendly, and welcoming. It was a nice place to slow down, and catch my breath. It hosted an older clientele while I was there, but everyone was friendly and willing to chat.

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place right next to the beach, this is just the perfect place to stay. Chris and Apple are very nice and helpful and if you want to, you have a beer with Chris and some other western locals right across the street. It will gave you a different local point of view.

Chris and Apple were so nice! They live on the property with their 4 yr old son and rent out 4 or 5 bungalows right on the water at big buddha beach (bangrak). We found them to be so awesome and welcoming, and they have a bar right across the street where we went to hang out and enjoy a couple drinks with them. They're building a super nice place next door and even offered the new pool to us!! Would definitely recommend staying here for backpackers on a budget and looking for nice people.

The lady who runs it is very friendly, we only stayed the one night though wish we stayed longer. It is right on the beach and in a nice quiet location. Walking distance to the pier for the Full Moon Party.

This place is simple, nice and pretty clean. I stayed in low season so I found the prices reasonable, but I would not pay more for this place. There was some construction while I was there and it was very loud. Not much atmosphere cause there is no common area, but it is nice to pop over to the bar. The pillows are too thick and hard. It would be nice to have a few more hooks to hang things up in the room.
