Great little place to stay, great value clean rooms and good air conditioning. The owner was so helpful in helping us book out boats, buses etc. The breakfast was great, all cooked to order and included in the price! Recommended

Had an awesome time there before going down to Ranong. Sood (the owner) managed to help me out with a lot of things and also gave me the location to the best saffron rice in town. Good place, cleaned everyday when I was there, also a nice owner to chat with. Definitely worth the stay!

First of all, all the place is really really clean which is important for me and help to feel like at home after two month travelling. The welcoming of the owner is perfect, even at 6 am in the morning, after a night travelling in a boat. What to say more? There is a kitchen, some hot water available is... More

Even the price for a dorm bed (280 bath) looks a bit expensive for low budget traveller at first sight it's worth every penny. Its located ten minutes from the train station right next to an night market where you can grab some dinner ( it's still quiet during the night). The owner speaks fluent English and provides helpful informations... More

I wasn't there long(like most people I assume) but, this place was clean. Perfect place to stay for one night before taking the ferry to Ko Tao. Booking online was easy. Response was quick. They arranged for a mini bus pick up from the airport. Which was very helpful. Everything was very affordable. Lockers available. Which are outside the dorm.... More

I only stayed in Salsa hostel for one night with my girlfriend on our way to Koh Tao but enjoyed our stay so much more than regularly in hostels. We arrived really late, like 11pm so we did not spend that much time but upon entering the hostel I felt it welcoming. There was a really cute cat who liked... More

There isn't a fault to be had with Salsa hostel. Firstly, a 300m walk from the station, simply follow the straight road. Management is also great- Sood has just spent half an hour sorting out my travel to Phuket, ringing train companies for me and booking it all from the hostel! The staff are very friendly and the facilities are... More
