Great location right beside an idyllic, quiet beach

The hosts were excellent, very friendly and accommodating. Perfect location for us as we were just staying there as a stop over for one night and it is 10 minutes away from big Buddha peer. Everything we needed.


This is a great location - on the beach - however far from anything. While the staff is very nice I felt they were unhelpful and inaccessible. No one around when I arrived, no one around when I had to leave, no one to answer any questions or help with navigating the area.

Hey Katya, I think you may have us mixed up with another place? Remember me greeting you? And booking you taxi's? And sharing great places to eat? And your phone charger? Hmmmm... All the best! Thanks!


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!

:) Thanks Grace! It was a pleasure meeting you....Safe n happy travels!


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 ❤️

It was such a pleasure to meet you guys!!! Sad to see you go but excited for you and your adventures ahead!! Have an amazing journey... All the best always!


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!

Hey Amanda! Sorry for the cockroach mate! Just had the place sprayed the day before you arrived... Again sorry and we hope you guys are having a great time on Koh Tao!!! ENJOY!!!


It was a very nice stay at the boardroom beach bungalows. Nice bungalows which were very spacious. Staff was very nice and helpful.


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.
