Good internet and good location only 10 minutes from the main beach.


The shower facilities were poor most toilets broken and the sinks didn't work. There are holes in the wall between the shower block and dorm rooms taped up with masking tape and bedding that looked like it hadn't been changed between guests. I'm sure if you get a private room things may be different but dorm needs work!! And wifi signal was terrible!


Overpriced compared to hostels around Thailand. The private fan rooms especially. Bathrooms could be much nicer with some cheap, simple fixes such as putting toilet seats on, mending broken shower controls. Could offer free toilet paper and shower gel to warrant the price tag. Reception staff nice & location excellent but not an outstanding hostel.


Was a nice place to meet people and start things. Excellent travel agency in front of it. Enjoyed my stay and met nice people. Water quality in facility was not so good. Maybe fixed now. Great for the money.


I think this hostel has 3 sites so I can only comment on the one I stayed. Pretty basic and not really much space for meeting people as no common room. But as a place to rest you head absolutely fine and excellent location for the beach at Ao Nang and to getvo Raili beach etc


Nice spot in the middle of town. Dorms were clean and lockers in the room. Good place to stay.

This is a very small hostel, but perfect to stay for a week near by all the wonderful beaches in the area. It is very affordable, they have big rooms for many people or private rooms with air conditioning. Internet works fine!


A very basic hostel. Its just a room with beds, no common area or anything. Price seems negotiable so I would just turn up.


Never ever again! There was growing mould on the sheets and pillows, it was disgusting!! We immediately left the place. If you pay 50 baht extra you'll have a bungalow for your own somewhere else and you wouldn't have to stay in this dirty hostel. We have never seen something like this before!!! Don't go to this place!
