    One of the best hostel experiences I’ve had! The location is quiet and peaceful by the beach, and is far away from a lot of the tourist areas on Samui. Huge shout out to the manager Chompoo, and her staff. Chompoo organized activities for the guests. She took us out almost nightly to the area markets for dinner, organized a snorkeling trip for everyone, and was even willing to drop me off early at the airport! Definitely will return next time I’m on Samui.

    Me and my girlfriend stayed here on our travels round Thailand. After just doing the full moon party we wanted to find a chill place to relax. Look no further than this. It is definitely well off the beaten track for travellers but renting a moped is easy as there is a place opposite that the hostel owner will help you with. This is the perfect place to experience local life, and you’ll have a beautiful white sand beach next to you. Chompoo made the stay all the better. Also rent a kayak!

    Freakin Lovely Host. Recommend staying here 100%. Air con was legit. Showers clean. Everything clean. Small cafe downstairs. It’s literally on the beach . You cannot get a better deal or better location. You need to rent a motorbike to get around but way worth it . I’ll only stay here on my next trip.

    Amazing hostal. I would go out of my way to stay here again. Building is full of character, air con included and a safety locker for all bags. 1 minute walk from the beach :)

    Truly a great place for anyone who doesn't want to be a part of the resort shenanigans on the other side of the island. It was a very pleasant stay and the staff was helpful and kind. I was traveling alone but it would have been an excellent place to stay for a more low-key vacation retreat with a few friends. Don't come here if you want to get trashed and party all day. I'm sure the kind staff would help you feel welcome but this place is quite charming and peaceful.

    Champoo was the most lovely host and goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Her BBQ’s are to die for. The location is lovely and away from the chaotic tourist areas and only 50yards from the beach with gorgeous sunsets. Beds are clean and comfortable and the hostel has a chilled out warm atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!

    Chompoo, the host, was very welcoming and fun to be around. My two day stay was very pleasant indeed and the beautiful beachfront was only minutes away on foot.

    Characterful little hostel in an out of the way area of Koh Samui. There’s not much in the way of shops and bars but the beach is next door and there are a few restaurants down the road. And you can hire bicycles or mopeds across the street. Good WiFi and filtered water available. The dorms have wooden shutters instead of windows so you hear the waves break at night.

    Overall experience wasn’t great. We arrived on the night ferry and had booked two beds in a dorm, however once we arrived at the hostel it was all bolted up and one of the guests had to let us in. We found two spare beds in a dorm, but neither was made up so ended up sleeping on a bare mattress without a blanket or pillow. In the morning we didn’t have a friendly greeting or apology from the receptionist, we asked for a discount to make up for inconvenience however she refused.
