Well as the photos don't show, when we turned up it was a builders yard. There was no reception just builders everywhere. Noisy all day and early mornings. They had a price outside for the exactly the same room that we had but cheaper than what we booked online and said we couldn't have it which was weird.


Booked twin room but had one double bed, there was only one stained towel in the room and we asked for clean ones which never came. Also there was often no running water which they claimed was due to shortages but everywhere else had running water and all the people we spoke to staying at other hotels did not have this problem. Air conditioning did not work properly and room was never cleaned.


At arrival, the first room they gave us was not cleaned yet. Then the new room they gave us had stained bed sheets, the shower head was broken and the whole bathroom was flooded every time we took a shower. There was no water available for our morning shower either... The cable didnt work either and no safe in the room. By far the worst stay during our 1 month trip in Thailand!!


The hostel was clean enough, although they didn't clean the room or change the towels towels once we were there, and as there wasn't anywhere to dry the towels they smelled damp after two days. The location was good, five minutes from the beach and 30 seconds from restaurants and bars. The staff were friendly but weren't amazing at helping sort out our travel to Bangkok, but we got there in the end. Overall, good value for money and enjoyed our stay.


Very loud street noise, as balcony window very thin and had gaps that let the noise through, other wise perfect place! Right next to the entrance to the beach! Clean nice room! Pillows very uncomfy though.


Really loved this hotel, was so cheap and yet got had such a great 4 night stay. The staff were so lovely, so approachable, happy and always pleased to help. The lobby was lovely and light, as are the rooms (plenty of windows and natural light), and clean also. There is a tour desk downstairs and he was very helpful to book tours whilst we stayed there. Location really good, near 711, restaurants, main strip etc. If you like muay thai boxing, the local stadium is up the road. Loved Z Hotel!!!!!


Tv was not tuned correctly, it took us 3 days asking before someone came to our room and fixed it. nobody cleaned our room in the 5 days we stayed. good location - 1 minute from the beach, not too noisy (gets quiet after 11pm)
