Terrible staff. Not honest. Hopelass. Rude. We have booked accommodation 2 weeks in advance for one night, for the 31st December. We were coming only for one day / for the New Years Eve to Koh Chang. I have tried to call them earlier on, a few days before and on that particular date to inform them that we would... More

They advertise the dorm with air con but they only switch it on after 19.00!!!! The staff seems unwilling and unfriendly and their restaurant is nothing special! The showers have only cold water and they dont clean the room or change the sheets often! For sure not an organised hostel!

We are sorry you did not enjoy your time with us. Regarding the issue with AC dormitories by their very nature have to accommodate all types of people some want AC while others do not and yet others want it only certain times, I am sorry but we can never please every one and in our experience the AC is...

This place is bulls_it. There're plenty better choice all over the island. Don't risk I made a reservation and got a confirmation email. I called and had many conversations with staffs there. The staff confirmed me she would reserve the dorm for 7 of us. I called her again in a morning before I departed Bangkok. She assure me she... More

We arrived here after a 7 hour journey from Ko Samed and the lady showed us to a traditional thai hut at the back. Shortly after we realised that this was not what we had booked- we had booked a/c and the room only had fans so we were moved to a twin room with a/c by the lady. Shortly... More

There are so many cheap areas closer to the pier that this one in comparison just seems ridiculous. I booked here because it was the only cheap accommodation around on hostelworld, but there are so many more if you aren't afraid to look by foot. Although the staff was nice and the landscape was lovely, I wished I hadn't booked... More

It was an excellent stay at AB regarding budget package and too economical. It is really worth value for money. I stayed in an independent AC bungalow which was neat clean with a reasonably big washroom and a private balcony. Location wise, it is at very strategic place as all major activities like Boat trip, diving, fishing, snorkling are minutes... More

Do me a favour. Go on the asia backpackers website and read the section regarding the bungalows. Was I stupid to assume that ALL of the bungalows were concrete with a/c etc? I should have checked closer when booking and should have thought it was too good to be true for the price, but since it's dead season, I assumed... More

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
