So welcoming and helpful, rooms are clean bright and spacious and at a great price for a budget trip. Free breakfast is delicious! I would definitely come back! At night there are plenty of food markets to choose from just outside the hostel. THANKYOU x

The ferry provide transport to the train station, if you walk down the road (not the night market one) and cross a roundabout, you will see the peach coloured sign on your left hand side. It is about a 5 minute walk, you definitely don't need a taxi. The night market it a short walk away if you want to... More

Thanks Katie. You had made a right choice for the foods on this street. I also think chicken briyani (saffron rice served with curried chicken but I'd recommend the deep fried chicken) and pancake stall are the best on this street. My cat ; her name is Salid, is super friendly to every guest she meets and she would love... More

Would definitely recommend this hostel. It's clean and the staff are lovely. The beds are comfortable and the shower is hot. They also do a lovely breakfast with eggs, toast and spreads, fruit, yoghurt and biscuits. This is such good value for money! If you're staying here to go to the airport they also provide a great transfer service too.... More

This is one of the best hostels I've been. The owner is super friendly and helps you in every point. The dorms are big and clean. We stayed one night in the private bedroom what I liked the best since you have an own shower on your own balcony. You can walk there from the train station in 5 minutes.... More

Clean, modern, and central. Guy at the reception speaks perfect English, is incredibly helpful and nice. Great wifi and aircon and the room had its own balcony. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone! Only spent one night but would come back again for sure.

I only stayed one night at the Hostel because I was coming with a late train and was going to take the ferry to Koh Tao the next day. My train had over 3 hours delay, so I wrote and E-Mail to the owner telling him that I will arrive past mid-night (so after the check-in time). He wrote back... More

Honestly, I've travelled a lot and every so often I stay somewhere that leaves a lasting impression on my heart. My time at Salsa hostel was in transit to and from Koh Tao but that didn't stop the staff from treating me amazingly. The owner literally went above and beyond during my entire stay.

Hi Jessi, By accident that I was on the same flight as you and I did not expect that. However, I had the feeling when I saw a foreign girl on the same flight walking into the plane and I guessed it might be you. Hahaha... and I was right!!
