I really don't know how anyone can complain at the value of this hotel, we've paid less here than at shared hostels and it's much better! All the basics you need for the cheapest we could find in Chaweng. Air con is great, shower works perfectly, all you need from budget accommodation!

Nice stay for us in this hostel. Large rooms (much larger than the rooms we stayed in with same price range). Funny decoration everywhere. Clean and nice large beds. The night life was bit of a walk, but the beach just 5 minutes. For us an excellent value for money

The room was clean and location is good but it stops there for me. The bed in my room was not comfortable (I got the private deluxe suite), you can feel all the springs from inside the mattress so sleep wasn't great. The water from the tap in the bathroom smells so I had to brush my teeth with bottled... More

Really nice! The owners are thai, really kind and lovely! I ate muesli with yogurt and my boyfriend a croissant, everything accompanied by two really similar Italian coffees! Price honest to be an imported breakfast and not typically thai!

Nice hostel with cool art-decor design. Facilities were clean and the location was very good. This hostel has two branches, and while the first one boasts a small restaurant/bar, the other one is lacking this feature.

Before starting this review I am aware that this is very cheap accommodation and you get what you pay for. It was a good location and had a nice quirky theme. However in comparison to what we have got for paying the same amount and even less in other hostels this was poor. Firstly we did pay for air conditioning... More

Building a bit old but nice place,friendly and helpful staff. The room we had was quiet. What is good is that we are not to far from drown town. A place to remember for the price land location. The hotel is right next to a massage center which is great.

The only advice I can give other people is avoid this place. My girlfriend and I had high hopes from looking at the photos and reviews on Agoda - how naive we were. We arrived to Akwa Guesthouse where we were told that the booking was made through Booking.com; it was made through Agoda. Anyway, we paid the money to... More
