First they gave us a smelly room where there were no windows and the balcony door could not be to opened (after even staff kicked it a few times to open). And then we changed the room to another which was also smelly (that mainly comes from the bathroom). Wifi was not working properly most of the time (it even... More

The receptionist was never in site. We had to call them by phone to ask for help. The in-room safe box didnt work.. and again, we had to leave for an excursion and the receptionist was not there to give us any help. We ended up having to take all of our belongings with us. Also, after a long day... More

At first I really liked the hostel, after being here a little more than a week, I still like it! However future guests should be aware that the reception and the rooms are in two complete different buildings. It takes 4-6 minutes to walk from the rooms to the reception. The rooms had everything described. Hot water, wifi not the... More

Dear reviewer, thank you for your time to make this review. Indeed there are two buildings at the AKWA Guesthouse, both on the main strip of the Chaweng beach-road, about 450 meters (or 4 minutes walk) from each-other. In our second building, during day time, indeed only the maids are present, and there is no reception (which is situated in... More

Ko Samui is awesome, Akwa guesthouse not so much (especially as there is a amazing looking hostel around the next corner with a roof top pool and bar for supposedly cheaper). We're not massively picky with where we stay (we just left a room in Thailand covered in lizards, ants and lizard poo and found it cleaner there than Akwa!!!)... More

Me and my friend had booked a rum for 2 nights, because of the good price and the nice pictures. When we arrived the staff didn't even say hi. And they were so angry when I asked to look at the room before we paid for it. Anyway at last they were willing to take us to the room. And... More

Finally somebody who was also staying at the guesthouse... More
