Expensive because of the location, but the toilets were the worst I've experienced in a hostel and were barely cleaned. One of the beds collapsed underneath someone and they do not remove the hostel world booking fee off the total payment which they should as it is payment for the app service! The free cocktail and breakfast were both poor. Great for full moon party location just not much else.

The location is great, but the cleanliness should have been better - we had toilet paper only on the day we arrived, no more after that ! There are two dogs living outside the window - be sure they will start barking and howling early morning. They serve free breakfast between 11-12am, which are super basic but a nice gesture.

Location is great, not right on Haad Rin but within stumbling distance which is perfect. The dorm itself is nothing special: clean sheets, shaky bunk beds, few power outlets, some curtains located in the room for some privacy. It does lack some security as lockers are not standard issue, and the ones that are cannot hold your entire bag but overall it wasn't a concern. The only common area was the bar across the street which was fine, we all did our painting there.

Little unfair to say no one cleaned the hostel as the cleaner came twice A day once in the morning & again in the evening to empty bins, clean the bathroom and clean the rooms. But sometimes it is hard to clean the dorm floors as everybody's clothes & stuff is just lying all on the floor.

It is a great Hostal... the location is perfect is you want to go to the full moon party, the owner ¨Sabina¨ help and advise you if you ask for places to go... the food at the bar is really good, but what i liked the most was the atmosphere, it was super great, even people from other hostals and hotel came at the the Zoo bar because it is jus awesome!!!!! the only downside was that there is just one bathroom (toilet and shower) for 10 people.

We our sorry you felt like this but it's highly unlikely that it's the worst place you have stayed in Asia. The dorms got cleaned twice a day bathrooms included.but it's also up 2 you & your dorm mates to keep things cleaned, like maybe picking up all your clothes lying around. It's very normal for a 12 bed dorm 2 share 1 bathroom.
