I stayed in Maithai Hostel for two nights and I really liked it. The room was one of the cleanest I found in Thailand, with a balcony, strong AC, tv and fridge. The staff was polite and the position good (5 min walking to the beach).

I went here in December 2014. I still remember that it took like 40 minutes to find it because it is not recognized by Google Maps. Rooms are on top of a massage center, so every time you go to your room you will have to go through the feet and the shoes of the clients. The Hostel close at... More

We stayed this hotel from 7th to 11th April this year. Very clean rooms with all possible modern facilities and very appreciable services for a budget hotel. Location is very good. you can reach to Kata beach within 10 mins on foot. Taxi, TukTuk stands, departmental stores and restaurants are nearby. Roadside rooms of upper floors are alluring. Problem you... More

The room was value for money. Clean room. Below is a massage lovers welcome. Not far from the beach, no swimming pool, free wi fi. Trained staff and friendly atmosphere. If you want affordable rooms near the beach. Here I recommend

This hostel is really value for money. The location is really nice, which is near to Kata Beach, which is more beautiful, tranquil and happening in its own way. The reception and staff are really friendly. They have nice food around and transportation is easy. The bed is really clean and we come back to clean and nice bedroom everyday.... More

We stayed at the Maithai, for two nights, on the 27th Feb 2013. The lady at the reception was a slightly agressive when I arrived and made the payment for the two nights. She rushed me to go away from the front desk 2 seconds after I handed the money, as I was putting my wallet back to my bag.... More

From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out, we experienced non friendly, non interested staff. Everyday the cleaner left our balcony unlocked and one day she left our front door unlocked. Poor security, staff let anyone through reception to walk up to the guest rooms. To get to the rooms all guests have to walk through... More

I booked this hotel with some trepidation. Never thought of staying above a massage parlour before, but frankly nearly every shop on the main road is a massage parlour, so very difficult to get away from them. Anyway, we were greeted by a very friendly English speaking lady who dealt with our arrival and showed us to our room etc.... More

I loved this place, it has been by far the nicest place we've stayed so far in South East Asia and one of the cheapest! The room was gorgeous, modern, chic, really clean and comfortable. It was just like a 4* European hotel room! In fact, the decor was probably nicer than most European hotels! The beds were super comfy,... More
