This place looks more like a family guesthouse than a hostel and this is what I liked. There is always some kid around and the owners/managers are really kind and helpful, they even helped me arrange ferries and buses for no charge. Scooters for rent at honest price and in a professional way, they check with you the bike's conditions...

Location: we moved here at last minute because we were not overly impressed with Chaweng. The hostel is very close to the beach and restaurants in the Fisherman's village. The area is quite expensive for food as is clearly a more middle class holiday resort. This obviously has no bearing on my review as not to do with the hostel...

The location of the hostel was amazing, just by the Fisherman's village! However, we still had some problems finding it, since no one (not even the taxi driver) knew where it was.. We enjoyed our stay, the dorms were clean and the bathroom was too. If I'm ever backpacking in Koh Samui again, I would probably come back!

This hostel is quite difficult to find, none of the locals could give us any directions but once you get there it's very pleasant. The owner greeted us and gave us complimentary water on arrival. The rooms were clean and had almost one fan per person. One of the best showers I have had whilst travelling. There are only two...

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 5 nights. The hostel is in a great location about 30 steps to Fishermans Village and Bophut beach. The hostel itself is kept clean but the only downside is the showers. Although nice, they are cold. We also experienced a few problems with the water as it kept cutting out in the upstairs...

Stayed there two nights, they rent scooters and were fair with the renting. Nice staff, Nice rooms, but only one bathroom/toilet for the entire backpack was one of the bad points. Another thing : we bought tickets to go to Phangan From there, thinking it would be Like Any other backpack. 400bth in total, the actual price of the ferry...

Excellent Hostel. Location is very good - in the quieter part next to fisherman's village. Surrounded by a few gem local businesses - motorbike rental, massage, food - which seem to have a good relationship with the hostel, are not expensive, and don't try to rip people off. Location is not the centre of nightlife, but has a few decent...

I stayed at this hostel for 5 nights in early December with my partner. The hostel is in a great location, just across from the Fisherman's Village in Bophut. The area is quite and way more laid back and relaxed than the busier areas like Chaweng but it is still close enough to get to the partying spots if you...

Let's Go Backpackers is a great hostel to stay in for the budget traveller. Luke and Sue are very friendly and helpful - they can arrange any taxis or day trips for you, and usually with a discount. The hostel was very clean throughout the whole trip. There aren't any locks on the rooms but there are lockers for your...
