Like the Name suggests, Forest Homestay, the cottage is surrounded by lush green plants and trees, but u cannot call it homestay because food is not provided, there is an Indian restuarant which opens only during lunch till almost midnight, food was good there. the Rooms were quite big and a big bathroom, it was clean and they would come...

Arriving at this hotel we were greeted by friendly staff and checked in very quickly. Our room and bathroom were very large and the A/C and fridge were helpful to have. Everyday cleaning staff came and brought fresh towels along with water. The TV in the room worked however there were only two English channels. This wasn’t a big deal... More

Unfortunately we did not enjoy our stay here. It was adequate, but a glorified backpackers at best. We most certainly got what we paid for - theres a reason its so cost effective. We expected a lush green space, set back in the forest area - Not at all. Our unit was on the back of a construction site, with... More

The rooms look nice first impression but in the bathroom there live many cockroaches that comes out at night !!! A romantic stay turned out to be a nightmere because there were many of them!!! Do not stay here !

We knew Ao Nang was touristy and overpriced so we were happy when we found an Agoda deal for a discounted stay here. It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst. The location is nice, it is in the middle of Ao Nang Beach and Noparrathara Beach and you can quickly walk to either. There is also a row... More

Very disappointing experience, if you go in high season you are better off if you spend a bit more in a better hotel, if you can. The hotel room was full of moskitos, and the bed was very uncomfortable (and moskitos doesn't let you sleep much either) and breakfast ridiculous in a very dirty restaurant. TV was not working and...

We realised that finding a good value for money in Krabi is not an easy task. Homestay had the best mix of fitting the budget and having more positive reviews than negative, so we decided to have a go. We stayed five nights. I would say for the price you pay it is fine, taking into account it is Thailand... More

Not bad value but very basic. of course their photos make it look wonderful, not so. The wiring and bathrooms needing a lot of attention, mattresses very hard and worn out. Nowhere to hang anything up, no bedside table no tea/coffee making supplies. Wifi very patchy towards to back of the property-needed to sit outside to connect.On the plus side... More
