Immaculately clean! Comfortable beds with individual lights and sockets. And a wonderful owner who ensures you're comfortable. He even went out of his way to make sure my Nok Air transfer service was coming for me in the morning, thereby totally saving me from missing my boat and being screwed! Truly one of the best and most comfortable hostels I've... More

I was lucky enough to find this place just walking down from the train station. The owner speaks excellent English and is patient and helpful, the rooms, bathrooms, and common areas were all perfectly clean and well kept. Owner is also a great source of local information, too. Very cool guy.

Very large, clean room with a really comfy bed (we stayed in a private double). Great bathroom and a nice view over the street. Can't say enough how helpful and friendly the staff were, even with the odd language barrier. Computers available and the BEST mango shake! Not much to do in Chumphon but worth a visit just for the... More

Dear guests, Thanks for your review and feedback. I apologize for the bad English of my staff. I am trying hard to improve their English but it is not easy. However, at least they are helpful which is more important. Cheers, Sood More

I stayed for two nights on my way back to Bangkok in a private two beds suite. The hostel is located not far away from the train station. Everything is very clean and looks modern but the best is the very friendly and hospitable staff. Because the receiver of my TV did not work the owner of the hostel offered... More

Dear Dirk, Thanks for staying at my Salsa Hostel for 2 nights. It was unfortunate that I did not have a chance to check your TV until you checked out. After checking your TV receiver, I found that that problem was not about the receiver but the batteries of the remote controller. The batteries were dead and that was why... More

We stayed at Salsa Hostel the second time now. Although we booked a private room with shared bathroom, we had a room with an own shower and a basin, located onto the really big roof-deck!! This is amazing!! So we have to share only the toilet and this is really clean and has a nice design :) Our room was... More

We stayed on night at the salsa hostel before leaving for Koh Tao and really loved it! We booked a private room, which was huge and had everything we needed (comfortable bed, fridge, TV,...) for a very good price. The general facilities (bar/cafe etc.) were also very nice and clean and the hostel looks very friendly. But the best thing... More

I haven't seen the hostel like this before located in the small town with a modern style, everything inside and outside's built and decorated with attention. The facilities're maintained in the proper condition and ready to use. The most signaficant thing for me is, it's so clean. The bed was really comfortable with white colour it made me feel clean...

I stayed at Salsa Hostel on my way South and have to say it was an excellent stay. I booked more nights than i needed and the owner (who was very friendly and helpful) didn't mind me staying less time than i originally booked. They have a very high cleanliness standard which i can vouch for because one of the... More

Thank you Peter, I'm so pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay at Salsa. Unfortunately that the free mango smoothies is only available in Summer (between April-June) when the mango is in season. Hope to see you again some day. Cheers/Sood More

Despite arriving in the middle of a the night we still received a warm welcome. We stayed in the mixed dorm facing the road. The bed was SO comfortable, clean and the room spacious and modern. The only downside was road noise and street light. In the morning we had a delicious all you can eat buffet style breakfast -... More

Dear guests, Thanks for staying with us and reviewing us. I am so sorry that the street light and traffic noise caused unpleasant experience to you. Being a city hostel and centrally located, it's hard to avoid those two things. However, I hope that you like my service and I look forward to your stay in the near future. Cheers/Sood More

We arrived at the hostel at about 2am, which meant we had to wake up the owner using the door bell. Whereas I would be pretty grouchy to have been woken up so abruptly, this guy was so welcoming and willing to help us in. We got to our room and it was spotless ( apart from the other backpackers...
