When we first found this place, we were shocked that it would only be 500 baht for a double bed, air conditioned room. The room was bright and beautiful, with a fridge, balcony and SO clean. It was a great location during the day, but as soon as the night came.. Oh my god. I know reviews have mentioned the... More

Whenever i think of my stay here i laugh and shake my head... First time in Chaweng so we knew very little and we wanted somewhere cheap to lay our heads... The room was basic, stuffy and the bathroom was small. I think we got a complimentary bottle of water each which was probably the only good thing about it.... More

The guest house in it self is an average place with big rooms. The ground floor is a party bar with high music all night. We booked it for sleeping last night, and we were so tired we made it. But we did awake 4-5 times during the night because of the loud music. We had the top floor room,... More

I read the reviews that this was in a loud street, but oh my god! It is impossible to sleep here! The bed actually vibrates from the bass from the nightclub underneath, that pumps music until 7am! The rooms are about 30degrees and there's no hot water. The staff are lovely, maybe the only plus side. This is the first... More

Couldn't wait to get out! Good if you want to party all night and sleep through the day, but we had a whole day of travelling so wanted a good night sleep so we could explore the following day. Got woke up at stupid o'clock by very loud music! But whatever, it's cheap! I also had to wake the lady... More

We arrived in Koh Samui without checking out any accommodation and not read any reviews, so we were happy to find a clean triple room just off of the main road at a decent price. The aircon worked very well and it all seemed good. However when we returned to our room later we realised that we had failed to... More

Stayed here for two nights with 5 other friends. It is in a perfect location if you are here to party. Unfortunately we had just come from none stop partying at the full moon party on Koh Phangan so we were actually looking for a chill out and the other reviews about the noise are right but if you are...

You could have complained me in person if you were not satisfied with what you ordered. We could have fixed there and then instead of you writing about your bad memories of toasty... More
