Property Description

Shane and Pop welcome you to Chill Inn Beach Cafe & Hostel!

This is a family run hostel, located in a beautiful beach setting 2 km south of Lamai Beach(the beautiful long beach) and 9 km south of Chaweng Beach (the biggest party and tourist area on the island).

The hostel has been operating for over 4 years and we have over a thousand genuine reviews on Hostelworld!

The hostel is Irish/Thai managed.
Shane is from Ireland and has backpacked around Central & South America, Europe, Thailand, New Zealand and Australia. He loves to help the guests with advice about the island.
Pop is Thai and has traveled around Europe, Asia, New Zealand and Australia. She is also fluent in Dutch, having lived in the Netherlands for 13 years. Pop is responsible for the beautiful design of the hostel and the delicious food.

We are situated on the main ring road of Samui, so the hostel is easy to locate from the airport or the numerous ferry ports. It is also close to many of the attractions of the island including waterfalls and many of the nicest viewpoints. There is a water sports center and a few restaurants on the same beach. The laundry service is just a few minutes walk from the hostel. We also rent out kayaks and paddle boards and we arrange cars and scooters for our guests to rent.

The hostel has great communal areas for guests to mingle. We feel that an important part of any hostel is providing the guests the opportunity to meet fellow travelers.
Every night at 7 pm we have a detailed information chat about the island covering nightlife, restaurants, waterfalls, nice drives and viewpoints etc. This gives new guests the opportunity to meet fellow guests and plan their days. We will also answer all your questions!

The hostel has a beachside terrace bar and cafe. Sip a cold beer or cocktail while enjoying the spectacular views. The cafe serves a mixture of Thai and western cuisine as well the best coffee on the island. Our guests avail of happy hour prices on beer all day. We believe we have the cheapest beer of any bar on the island and the coldest!

There is one bungalow in Chill Inn Beach Cafe & Hostel, with two mixed dorm rooms of 6 beds and 4 beds respectively (share bathroom) You must walk through the 6 beds dorm to reach the 4 beds dorm and bathroom. There is another share toilet and shower beside the bungalow and one more toilet at the reception area available.
The Bungalow is within 15 meters of the beach so when you open the door in the morning you will have a fabulous sea view!

We also have a 4 bed deluxe ensuite dorm and a sea view 6 beds mixed dorm in our main building with beautiful sea views (The 6 beds dorm has 2 showers and 2 toilets available).

All our rooms have air conditioning available between 5 pm. to 11 am.
We have a total of 5 showers and 6 toilets for our guests.
We have excellent free Wi-Fi, Sun bed, Frisbee, Beach mats, game boards and Yoga mats.

    I don't usually post many reviews, but I felt like I had to with the Chill Inn Hostel. One of the best hostels I have stayed at during my travels. It is rare to find a hostel that provides such a chill and relaxing environment while still promoting being social and exploring the island. I was worried about the location being a bit far from things at first but found quickly that it is very well connected and easy to get around. Can't recommend this hostel enough!

    We had the best stay at the Chill Inn. From the moment we arrived, the owners were welcoming and happy to help. We only stayed for 2 nights because we had a flight booked, but we could have definitely stayed longer. Shane gave us an orientation on our first evening which gave us so many tips on places to go on the island that we wish we could have explored! Would definitely recommend and would return.

    I've really enjoyed my time here. Shane and Pop are very friendly and helpful and they make it a point to introduce all the guests to each other. The food and drinks are good and they even arranged a Thai cooking class for us, up the hill. I highly recommend this place.

    The Chill Inn is a fantastic hostel! Shane and Pop are so welcoming and helpful, Shane introduces everyone as your arrive and remembers everyone’s name so you really feel at home. They help to organise everything including nights out, car hire, tours, transfers and cooking classes. I booked for two nights and ended up staying longer! It’s right on the beach so perfect for lazy days but is also walking distance from the bars and restaurants in Lamai. Thanks so much Shane and Pop!

    The chill inn is by far my favourite place in Samui. My first time there, I booked two nights, and stayed for two and a half weeks. The staff are incredible and provide tons of information and tips on the best places to visit, have a night out, and go for day trips. It’s right on the beach and the social atmosphere: very friendly with lots of kind guests but not too crazy like your typical party hostel. If you’re looking for somewhere to relax during the day and have fun at night, this is it.

    Amazing experience at Chill Inn! Shane and Pop are so welcoming and know everyone’s names and introduce everyone to each other. Shane gives an informative talk about activities and how to get around on the island and makes it really easy to book excursions and transport. Easy access to the beach and paddle boards and kayaks. Extremely chill and friendly vibe and the cafe area makes it easy for you to meet and interact with people. Highly recommend this hostel!

    We loved our stay at the Chill Inn! Shane and Nan are so friendly and informative. Shane remembered everyone’s name and made sure to introduce guests to each other. Nan is such a sweetheart! My friend and I were going to walk into town for dinner but she offered to drive us on her scooter and brought us to a great local spot to eat. If you want to go out and party, find a place closer to Chaweng, but if you are looking for a quieter social scene this is your best option! Thanks Shane and Nan!
