This place is incredible! Contrary to typical "backpacker" hostels in Asia (which I would otherwise steer clear from), ibed is clean, comfortable, modern, chic, located in the upscale more quiet lamai beach area in koh samui, comes with breakfast, and has a very professional management and reception team. Highly recommend

Probably one of the nicest hostels I have EVER seen! So clean, unique, modern, perfect location, great facilities and prices! I stayed here and made friends within the first 5 minutes - granted there were only 4 of us in the whole hostel at this time (all solo travellers) but I can imagine this place to be incredible when it's...

I am currently staying in IBed in Koh Samui. It is only is the best hostels I have stayed in. The pictures on Trip Advisor are very representative of the actual property. Lamai beach area is excellent- good cafes and restaurants, and clubs. The staff is good and I had no issues whatsoever. I would love to stay here on... More

i-Bed delivered exactly what the website offered. Loved the curtained beds, lockers and TVs. Right across the street from the beach. The owners also run the beach resort that you have to walk through to get to the beach. I met awesome people here. So, I was really lucky. The staff is great and genuinely friendly. I think it's worth... More

This was the best hostel I've ever been in! Clean, friendly staff, friendly guests, safe for your gear! Very comfortable bed. Large lockers, nice showers with hot water. Just a short walk from the beach!

Immaculately clean hostel. Bit pricier than other hostels but worth the price in my opinion. Lamai Beach is a beautiful location. I preffered this to the busier Chewang Beach. Beach is easily accessible as well as many great restaurants. If you go out of the hotel and turn right, the first restaurant on your left is amazing and the staff... More

This is a tough review because there were good and bad things. Positives: friendly and accomodating staff, very nice design - looked like a boutique resort (especially from the outside). Like any hostel, it was a good place to meet people. Location wise, preset decent. They are located on the beginning of lamai strip. But it's super easy to walk... More

We travelled as a couple, we just needed a night somewhere, now im not a fan of backpackers unless i have my own room but we stayed in a 6 bed dorm and it was fine. Of course there was some noise but thats normal in most backpackers. What i liked was the little pods you sleep in cause it... More

The rooms are very noisy. Every time other room open or close the door, it sounds you slap the door heavily. You can definitely have no rest and no deep sleep at night. Horrible experience! And the service is not good. The hostle won't change you towel unless 3 days past even you ask for the change. The price is... More
