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.

    Chill Inn is absolutely amazing, there’s no where else that you need to stay on the Island. The atmosphere is incredible and Shane and Pop introduce you to everyone who is about which is so great for solo travellers. The food is incredible and reasonably priced and the beds are really comfy. Really couldn’t recommend this place enough.

    Amazing. Extended my stay by a night. The owners are the most friendly helpful people - attend the 7pm welcome tour. The views are amazing and the food is reasonably priced and delicious. A more chilled vibe but still has a bar for alcohol and a separate lounge to relax in. Bikes cheap to rent from the front. Would definitely recommend!

    We had a fantastic time at the Chill Inn. Great facilities and relaxing vibe. The staff here super friendly. Shane and the team go out of their way to make everyone feel at home. Great bar and snacks available on site. Scooter rentals at a good price.

    Shane and Pop were amazing. They delivered a personalised experience, remembering our names and giving great advice on where to go. Upon arrival, Shane knew I was travelling solo so he explained to me which groups of solo travellers were doing what and pushed me in the right direction so I immediately met a group of friends. A word you’ll hear a lot when you stay at the Chill Inn is EXTEND. Many people I met extended extra nights and didn’t want to leave. Thanks for a great experience!

    One of the best hostels I have stayed. I don’t usually write these things, but this place deserves it. I extended four days because the vibe, people, and the beach were all exquisite.

    What a place. I had high expectations of my stay in Thailand and what I wanted from a hostel and these guys superseded all of them. Fantastic people, really helpful info talk at 7pm every evening, top location, amazing atmosphere. I was going to stay 1-2 nights in Koh Samui and this place and the people there just sucked me in and I ended up staying for almost a week :D I cannot recommend this place enough!

    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.

    Perfect location literally on its own private beach. No better way to start the day than sitting with an Ice Coffee looking out to sea. Hostel was really clean. Shane (you’re the man) was great and gave us the rundown of everything to do on the island as well as his own personal recommendations. Would definitely recommend staying here as it’s got is own unique feel and the location is perfect.

    Sweet hostel with its own little stretch of beach. Easy walking distance to good food places if you don't fancy eating at the café, beach bars etc, but a bike would be useful to have to get around. Shane was great doing a daily chat about what there is to do on the island and the atmosphere here is super lovely. Would definitely come again

    Very Good

    A little further out on a beautiful remote beach. Will need to hire a scooter or car to get around. But easy to find on the main road. Breakfast not included, but the cafe has a full menu. A deposit for both a towel and room key. No privacy and very small rooms. Bedding not very nice. But friendly owners. Family run.
