Penzy Guesthouse

Koh Samui, Thailand
91%

Staff at Penzy's are all very helpful and nice people. Hostel is kept very clean, rooms are cleaned everyday. Penzy can get discounts on tours so just ask. You can rent a scooter from them too. Penzy's is just off the main road so quiet for sleeping but really close the beach and bar's/restaurants. All the usual things you need are nearby. You can rent a beach towel from them too but we had bought some. We found most of the good food places were 20 minute walk down the road. We recommend :)

Lanta New Beach Bungalow

In short do not stay here they are running a scam. Had a very bad experience, same thing happened to many other travellers we spoke with (same hotel). Read on for more details. No one came to pick us up from pier as advertised. When we arrived we were shipped off to another sub-par hostel even further away from long beach. It was a shed with no facilities and had been built that day. When I returned to complain the staff shouted at me and told me to take my money back and go find somewhere else.

The owner can get good discounts on tours etc and cheaper transfers to the pier, unfortunately we had booked somethings in advance.

Oak Hostel

Tokyo, Japan

Looks like it was formerly a business hotel turned hostel. Staff were very nice and helpful. Location is near Uneo where you can get on the yamanote line which will take you to all the tourist spots. It is near a subway station too. There was a small kitchen with only 1 washer/dryer, but a laundry place is nearby. We also sent clothes to Australia from the post office nearby which was really easy. Good spot for couple wanting a private room/bathroom. Maybe not so good for solo travellers.

Bit of a walk to the train station when you have your full pack and are tired other than that great location near all the sights. Had some issues with wifi but the staff sorted it out

Mr Yano is a party animal and does tours quite often. We actually ran into him upon leaving the train station and he directed us to the hostel. The rest of the staff and really nice, many of them have done lots of traveling and can offer good advice.

Really close to the train station. I recommend getting on the bus tour to bring you around the sights.
