Absolutely incredible service at this hostel. The owner went out of his way to help booking island tours, and the staff went above and beyond anything we could have asked. The location is actually perfect, 5 minute walk from a beautiful beach and even shorter to great nightlife. Most importantly, the food... it is literally impossible to describe how good... More

I tried the kway teow phad. Best fried flat noodles. Tasty yet not oily. The other dishes were delicious at unbelievable prices. great value for dinners. Friendly and prompt service. They serve beers wine and other liquors but i recommend a cold beer with the kway teow phad. Place is homely and casual.

I have stayed at SFR 5 time over as many years. Terje and his staff can not do enough for their guest. The rooms are always spotless and the food is real authentic Thai food if that is what you like, if not there is always an alternative choice on the menu.

This hotels location to kata beach is unbeatable! Also very close to Monday night night market which is right across the street. Breakfast prices are the lowest I've seen, Only 50baht. Room is very basic and not the Cleanest I've stayed. If your not looking to spend a lot of time in the room, and want a budget place to... More

Stayed here for 3 days. Chose it based on reviews, proximity to beach (walking distance) and, of course, the great name! We had a lovely room, number 7. It was big with a balcony. We were pretty disorganised with our plans whilst we were here and the owner helped us book ferry tickets/ day trips/ moped hire all with <12... More

I wasn't very happy with my stay here! In the first night, it was raining a bit, and my room was flooded - apparently, the windows weren't waterproof... My backpack and camera bag were completely wet! The owner just told me not to put anything on the floor and let me dry my wet stuff in the laundry room. No... More

About 300000THB was used to repair ,but unfortunately the crack... More

Stayed for seven nights and enjoyed a clean, quiet, spacious room with very good beds. The owner and staff were very friendly and keen to help if necessary and interested to offer a pleasant stay. The beach is in short walking distance. If you describe tour pickups or something alike that the guesthouse is located behind the pizza company in... More

I stayed at the hostel nearby that didn't have a restaurant, so I was very happy to have stumbled across this little place in search of good food. I was just looking for something for less than 100 baht, and I ended up having the creamiest, most delicious green curry (vegetarian) I've had in all of thailand. Excellent!!!!!
