Booked through online company, and to my disappointment they'd over booked. The chap was a lovely man, but offered me an 'upgrade' from my air con private room, which turned out to be a dorm shack. I politely refused and the gave me a full refund for my deposit. Personally wouldn't stay again but if you are a teen single... More

We are sorry for the Inconvenience the issue was not of our making and we would always suggest guests should book directly with us so as to not have the same problems. We do hope to see you at our other venues in Thailand and wish you a safe journey where ever the road takes you next. More

I've been there for a few days and i really enjoyied it.... But what is really good about AB is that they care about their guest so much that even if you wake up on a killer hangover and you forget important documents there when you leave (like it happened to me).They'll send it to you wherever you are!

I stayed in the femal dorm and it was really quiet. AC from 8:30 pm to 10:30 am. You need your own padlock. Bathrooms are clean. 20 minutes from the Bang Bao beach and even closer to the Bang Bao pier if later you want to go to other islands. The food is expensive though. And the kitchen close at... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. On the room prices we will always be cheaper if you book direct and not through booking companies as they take a chunk of the room rate, if you book on site or via our Facebook or web sites we guarantee to beat any other price. More

We were really exciting for trying this place it looks cozy in the pictures! It was weird it was so cheap, they give us a decent attention when we arrive, but unfortunately the cottage have holes in the walls, it's all of wood but it wasn't because it was old or something, the construction of this one is not the...

This place was strange.... The setup was weird, the staff and owners were very inattentive and didn't really care about your needs. There is no "bar" it's literally 3 bottles of different booze to choose from behind their reception desk. Food was horrible, and this place was super far from the main part of town. Cool place to meet ppl... More

Thanks for the review, may we point out that our bar is stocked with local beers and both local and international spirits and we certainly have more than 3 bottles, as can be seen on our live cam. Our staff are laid back as this is what we have found the vast majority of our guests want they do not... More

The owner is a young english guy very nice and helpful. Rooms are clean and quite new. The hostel is a quiet place, a bit far and you need scooter to move but you have good beaches close to it. If you want party don't go there but if you are looking for some peace and relax this is your... More

Had a watercut for couple of days. Wifi works if it does, many times not. Of course the manager and staff didn't want to compensate this in any way. I didn't see any customers want to stay here longer than couple of nights. The young British owner and his mate are more interested to play football on Playstation than serving... More

The hostel has everything what you need. The Staff was very helpfull during our stay. Its a little of from the main areas but can be reached by a short ride with a shared taxi or motorscooter . Good places to eat and Supermarkets are in walking distances.

We stayed at Asia Backpackers with a group of around 10 people. The rooms however were not really clean, neither was the shared bathroom. Also the location is not the best, as it is quite far from the beach and party area, so that you might want to rent a scooter or bike. You can go to Bang Bao Pier,... More
