Couldn't get a better location! I treated myself to a night here and it did the job perfectly. There is no backpacker vibe here, just a and cost room.

Not great. The common room is closed off at 23:00, which was annoying as we were all watching a movie! Speaking of which, the outdoor cinema didn't show a movie when I was there, despite it saying movies are shown each night at 18:30. I was in a cramped dorm with no windows & no space. But most disappointing was the fact I almost missed a flight due to the old man behind reception not booking an airport shuttle for me despite him telling me it was! I'm not one to moan but this hostel was poor.

Great staff, good bar next to the hostel (kind of a gambling pub) & the wifi worked very well. En suit dorms are very welcome! Would stay again.

Loved it! Fantastic theme & setting, located close to the MTR & excellent staff who were extremely helpful. They have good washing facilities, privacy curtains in the rooms & a very large common area. The guests seemed to be mainly Chinese groups, which made socialising difficult. However, it was more than perfect for one night & the washing facilities were most welcome! Highly recommended.

Weird! The reception/ common area is alright and they serve literally the cheapest beers in Singapore, $2.80 for an Asahi? Can't go wrong! The gym is a room with 3 things in it and yea, there is a Jacoozie at the top floor with a seating area which looks great for a group. The pods are okay but the rooms are depressing with no window. Also the bathrooms are toilets & showers in one cubicle so you can sh** & shower at the same time. The ultimate time saver! However the bathroom is always flooded.

Chill Inn Beach Cafe & Hostel, Koh Samui, Thailand

3rd Aug 2015

The view from the beach bar is fantastic, and if all you want to do is chill out then this is the place to go! It's a 15 minute walk to the main Lamai Beach, and then you get all the bars that go with with that. Beds & pillows are VERY comfy and Shane the Owner will help you out with anything & often drinks with his guests. (As an Irishman should!) Food is a little expensive, but the 50 Baht happy hour was great. After that it's cheaper to drink in Town. Great place!

Thanks for the review, we have extended the happy hour for our guests till closing :) Safe travels Shane

Fantastic Staff! I did the Friday hike to Tiger Temple with a bunch of people and that was fantastic as it got you to know LOADS of people! Only 100 Baht so a bargain. Location is great, buses & boats are opposite the hostel to take you everywhere. Beds are comfy, rooms have air con and the playground bar offers very cheap & tasty food until 2am! Drinks are WAY cheaper by reception and most people bought their drinks there. Would stay here again!

Loved it! Professional & informative staff, a nice bar & great wifi. Beds are great & very private with everything you need! The free tee & coffee on standby was fantastic! Not much going on in the local area, hardly any bars, but the station is close by so getting elsewhere isn't a problem. Will definitely stay here again!

It's okay... The staff are great. Helpful & welcoming. I was asked if I would mind swapping beds after the first night and I didn't mind this. However, when I got to my bed I found someone sleeping in it & the nightguard was clueless at what to do. He seemed to think I wanted to change beds despite me repeating that I was the one asked to move. Plus what separates you from the stranger sleeping next to you is only a thin mat. If the person next to you snored, you're screwed.

Check in took ages but the lady was friendly enough. If all you want is a large, quiet, comfortable bed, then this is perfect! There is no atmosphere but it has a nice rooftop chill out area, free drinking water & your own TV in your capsule dorm! TV has English channels too & works via a headphone point in the wall so it doesn't disturb others. AC in all areas & lots of bars near by. Would recommend!

It was good with a nice bar and the staff were helpful, but there are too many school groups hanging around the common areas, which takes away from the backpacker feel of the place. This was very noticeable at Breakfast, when there were kids everywhere.

The prison rooms look amazing! We stayed in an 8 bed dorm. The beds are very close together so if anyone is snoring next to you, you're screwed. The staff are very helpful though. The TV room doesn't have TV, which is a bit of a lie. We missed the 2nd half of the Women's World Cup match vs Japan after the bar closed & it would've been nice to watch it in the TV room. Not bad though!

Bit of a walk from the centre. Fantastic 2 bed dorm! Couldn't have asked for more, and in such a unique setting. You can look through the skylight up to the old church roof. The bar is always unmanned with no music, which is a shame because you could have such a great backpacker vibe there, seems like it's going to waste! Nice cheap breakfast & great staff.

It's okay. Some staff seem a little out of their depth & don't seem to know what they're doing, we were checked in wrong & found out after a day out we'd been moved out into a room with no free beds, only to be moved back into the same Room again! Bar is nice though & the one next door is fun too. Probably will stay somewhere else though next time as it had no backpacker vibe at all.

Great bar with some good prices as Copenhagen is an expensive city. The staff are really friendly, Easy to find and very helpful. If you walk back at night be prepared to be approached by west African prostitutes who seem to be all over the place, and right outside the hostel. They're harmless though. Maybe be a bit stricter on people taking other people's beds. Otherwise, a great place.

Great, friendly, helpful staff & really nicely decorated. Very clean & well presented, just lacking in atmosphere. It's perfect for school groups or a night, but the lack of a decent backpacker bar is very evident. Nice cafe though and the location is fantastic, right next to all the action (a few mins walk!). I would stay again.

Nice living room for beers with other backpackers & friendly staff. Check out the crazy theatre bar downstairs with It's camper van! I would definitely return here.

Excellent location just a short walk from Victoria Station which makes catching coaches & trains the next day easy. They have a fantastic burger menu and a nice snack menu once the kitchen has closed, though lots of this was unavailable when I was there. The 24 hour bar is amazing! Will definitely stay here again.

Wonderfully decorated and friendly, informative staff, and situated right next to the mushrooms! They have a nice rooftop bar & pool as well, a very cool hostel. Only thing is that some people were very loud in the bar past midnight, which was a annoying as this hostel isnt the party one. Still, excellent hostel.

I can't argue, it's placed in a wonderful part of town (the Nashmarkt is fantastic) and it's walking distance to everything, esp the museums quarter which is 5 minutes away, and the rest, as long as you don't mind a bit of a walk, is easy. Within 20 minutes, I was wherever I wanted to be

This hostel is incredibly social. I had a mojhito pushed into my hand within minutes of checking in! You really do meet people so easily at this place. It's a bit run down, but that kinda goes with the theme of Puerto Rico! Location is a bit out of the way, but the area is very safe and within walking distance of the bus stop. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

21st Apr 2014

5 mins from the Mestre Station which makes getting into Venice very easy, which is why we chose it. The short walk to the hotel from the station seems dodgy but it's safe. Nothing is going on at the hotel, it's pretty dull, but if you need a cheap place to lay your head it's perfect.

About 7 minutes walk from the main Ban Jelica square, It's very clean, well furnished and modern looking. The bar and outside terrace are excellent, staff are great and each bed has it's own plug socket, which is vital these days! It just feels very, very cramped. The 'party dorm' had literally no space to move about and the noise from outside kept people awake into the early hours. This is a great party hostel, but not one for those who want a good nights sleep.

Comfy beds, reading light, power points, air con in the room and good security. Dorms were Nice and quiet! Didn't hear any of long street or the amazing roof too bar. Outsiders are allowed in the bar, so everything stops whilst they get kicked out which is ridiculous and causes inevitable conflict. Stupid rule. Make it for backpackers only or have it for both! Other than that, awesome place in a fantastic location!

Don't believe the photos, it looks nothing like that. It looks dirty, dated and neglected and the one saving grace is the wifi. The double windows block out some of the train noise, which is very loud, but they're shared with the room next door so if they close theirs its noisy in ours. Ridiculous! Walls are paper thin and you hear everything. An awful, dirty place. I won't be back.

Beautifully furnished, this is a lovely place to base yourself whilst in London rather than slumming it in one of the dreadful cheap slums that London Hostels are famous for. The staff are extremely knowledgable and helpful and will try to work around problems rather than make a mountain out of them. Wifi is touch and go but the privacy curtains on each bunk is a fantastic idea. Would stay there again.

When I book a 4 bed dorm for 4 people I expect the whole dorm! They split our group up which wasn't appreciated. The place is a building site, falling apart. Only 2 sit down toilets in the hostel which are in the 2 shower rooms, I had to wait 30 mins to take a dump! If you're a girl - you won't be able to pee. It's loud, dirty and hot. Small positives, free wifi is good, it's Oppersite the station, people are friendly there

Weird. I arrived at 14:50 when reception should've been open and a note on the door said back at 15:00. I came back at 15:15 & a new note said back at 15:30!! A miserable Russian lady eventually showed up and gave me some clean sheets and a key and I went to the other side of the building were the dorm was, which is a long room with a sink, kettle, microwave and bathroom at the end of it. The location is good and it's quite communal, but I would never come back and stay here.

Great staff, bar was being renovated when I was their which was a shame but they still brought us beers when we wanted them. DSTV wasn't working too to so had to veture out to watch the football. Amazing views of the Jo'Burg skyline, a roof top terrace would be ideal. All those amazing views and they are not being shown off! They should be! They'll give you a lift to wherever you need to go too.

Great Vibe, fantastic bar! Really good fun, dorm beds have a pull across curtain on the beds which is great for a bit of privacy. Nice touch, that you get your own space. Food is great, the burgers are MASSIVE and it's 2 minutes walk to the metro which is easy to use. Staff were helpful too. I would definatly stay here again.

Great location, great staff and a superb free breakfast, however the hostel is full of school groups all the time. One night I came back to find my room full of 14 year old girls. This was their school trip and they were moved into my room with out me being told. Imagine if I had stumbled in drunk at 1am?? They gave me another room but still. This is a great hostel for young groups but if you're a backpacker or someone who doesn't want a hostel full of screaming teenagers, go somewhere else.

I am very sorry, but this is not our responsibility to inform someone in dormitory, that other people are checking in. It is dormitory and not privat room.

Very Nice, cosy hostel, a real mauritian expirience as your living with the family that runs the place. Rooms are great, air con, tv, dvd players, and en-suit. The walls are paper thin, you can hear every word of anything going on next door. Cold beer is always kept in the kitchen fridge too, but it's the ultimate in chilled...NOT a party hostel, theirs no life in the surrounding village whatsoever! But good value and worth it.
