“Disorganised, unpleasant experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

If you're not an old German man, don't stay here. I was traveling with three other 21 year old girls and it was not a pleasant experience. We were given beds with no sheets or blankets in a room full of old German men on the first night and were moved to another hostel on the second night because the owner had overbooked. We got no apology for being moved to a hostel we didn't choose, rather we got to sit around for 2 hours on the afternoon of New Year's Eve while we waited for some mysterious car to take us to our next location (we couldn't take a taxi ourselves because no one could tell us what this alternate hostel was called). There was a British man named Simon who worked there and who was very helpful but he could not make up for the disirganisation and rudeness of the owner. Also, it is not nearly as close to the beach as is made out and it will cost you around 100 baht per person to get to Chaweng centre. It was clean enough but I would never stay here again.

Stayed January 2014, traveled with friends
