When we first got ther we thought we had discover a little gem of a guesthouse, great little bar downstairs showing all types of sports, the rooms clean and tidy and basic as we expected for such a great price, a decent view from the balcony!! Unfortunately after we had been out for some food and drinks we got back... More

Thank you for your review. Yes, unfortunately for some and fortunately to others we are located in the middle of the busiest party area in Koh Samui. So my advice if you want to have some fun time and want to party Moby Dick Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay. Everything is only step away from our guesthouse... bars,... More

booked to stay here after leaving another guest house for 3 nights. Only stayed 2 and refused to stay a third night. Worst place to stay if you want a good nights sleep. Music thumping from the club down stairs until 5am!. No sleep even after going out and coming home before 5am. Room was clean at least but very... More

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
