Alone in the hostel...”

Like the Wifi, good if love quiet environment...

I stayed here for 2 nights. I am very surprise with the location. It is really far from the beach. Its useless if you don't know how to ride a motorcycle. It is an ideal location if you know how to ride one. Once you arrived, immediately rent to motorbike just outside the hostel, next to the laundry shop. Last time, I was the only visitor here. The girl who take care this hostel is awesome. She help me a lot. What I love here, with a small price, you can have for the whole awesome room, you can use their kitchen freely, they got swimming pool, wifi.... its really hard to find at first. My shuttle bus need to call his office to allocate this hostel. hahaha... nice, really nice!! but u plan to get drunk in Chaweng every nightt, just forgot about this hostel, dont drink and drive! k

Disappointed”

close to beautiful beach

We arrived after check in time and there was no sign of any staff. We waited around 10 mins and finally a door behind the desk opened. The staff member had clearly just woke up! The room stunk and there was dust everywhere. The fridge in the room was switched off and hadn't been cleaned for ages. Only things clean were sheets and the bathroom. The hostel is quite far from anything so you need to rent a motorbike. The closest beach is about 10-15 walk along a road with no pavement, although it is probably the nicest beach on koh samui (choeng mon). Whenever we went back to the hostel it was rare that we saw any staff, which was a shame because she seemed friendly enough, just lazy! We got a lift off her from the hostel to bang rak harbour which is cheaper than other transport on koh samui.

Avoid if you can ”

My travel partner and I booked this hostel for 4 nights in hopes of saving money and boating over to Koh Phangan for Full Moon. Big mistake. The hostel is located very far from any main road and attractions despite its claim of being close. If you stay here it's almost necessary that you have a motorbike to get you around. The receptionist is usually sleeping in the room out back therefore making it hard to check in or out at unusual times. Their dog also barks aggressively at everyone who comes in. The room we got was NOT as advertised. It was a private twin room on the ground floor. Door didn't lock from the outside, and there was a huge gaping hole under the door that allowed for a very uncomfortable amount of millipedes to enter the room at their leisure. Not to mention the infestation of ants that march in one by one every morning from the window. The room itself was grimy. Cobwebs in the ceiling, mold in the bathroom. The floors are cement and the beds are essentially metal frames with overused futon cushions of which you sink right through and feel the entire frame. There are two outlets and only one by the beds and one by the door. Water pressure was nil in both shower and sink. Would not recommend. We left and paid a lot more money to stay in Koh Phangan.

For peaceful minds”

Only for people who plan to rent a moto! In the morning there was a big poo in the bathroom from the local dog. Owner works during the night so you have to wake her during afternoon to check-in. Value for money is OK. Quiet place, not suitable for party-goers. The place to rent moto is 10 minutes by walking. However when returning they can drive you back.

SO DIRTY!!!! ”

I have booked 2 nights but cancel the second one. There was no Dody in that hostel except myself. It was dirty everywhere, holes in the floor at the entrance, holes in the ceiling... It was only one woman who were looking after, every time I have seen she was either sleeping. In the bathrooms there full of spider web and spiders, dead moustikos everywhere and so dirty it looks this place has been used years ago and that I think the, woman should clean instead sleeping all the time. This is completely crazy i have never seen a place like that in my whole life. It is a shame that I cannot upload any photos or videos to make you awake that I am not overreacting. Please for your own safety and good Health do not use this place.
