We booked in thinking we could save money on our first day in Koh Samet, considering we will be out most of the time anyway. But instead, we paid the price. The toilet was fine, except for the toilet bowl that needs manual flushing. We can still tolerate this. But the fact that our TABLET and WATCH were stolen, WE... More

It was very comfortable to find a person with whom you can fully communicate in English I.e. the owner itself. He had been very courteous and helpful in guiding us about the area. You should not be asking much if you are not paying much. This is the cheapest place . We had booked two rooms and despite error on... More

He showed us our and it was dirty especially the toilet that you wouldn't like to touch the wall nor sit on the bowl. We thought it was bearable since we... More

Not a bad place if you've arrived on the island and need a night's sleep before looking for somewhere good to stay. Not much else going for it though.

We get two Fan rooms, one for 300 baht. It was quite clean. We wanted to stay on the beach but after we cheeked the prices we decide to stay longer in ban samet hill. It is free computer with internet for use. It is a small beach near by hostel. crowded beaches is 10 minutes by walk.

With friends I booked 3 rooms in this hotel. We arrived to be told that only two rooms had been reserved. The hotel staff admitted it was his fault, but then tried to blame us for booking through Hostel Bookers, among various other excuses. There were no other rooms on the island, but he refused to help us. We ended... More

We arrived here and were more than delightful to find a clean room and get a warm welcome of the friendly owner. We fled from the place we originally booked: Ao Pai Hut... that was really the worst case scenario (disgusting room with empty beer bottles and dead flies in the bed when we checked in).... so ths was heaven...

Our room here cost a bit more than a bungalow we rented for a second night down closer to the beach. We ended up at samet hill because it's one of the only on hostelbookers.com, it's a totally satisfactory place but there are others cheaper and with better location
