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

It's simple, it's central, it's convenient, it's cheap, and though being in the guts of Chaweng it is relatively quiet because it's away from the main road. Be organised, it's run from the cafe 300m from this hotel.

There are two buildings to the guesthouse and our was a 5 minute walk away, but the hotel arranged a tuk tuk to take us with our bags which was great. The... More

Vile guesthouse. Arrived to a sign which told us to call the main reception down the road, we called 6 times and only buzzing could be heard when it was answered. We waited 20 mins, no one came. We walked down to the reception where we were told someone was on their way down and we had to wait till... More

We arrived to a closed reception advising us to call/walk to the restaurant to check in, the lady that arrived gave us a key and left, however the key was to an already occupied room! Once we phoned and got her back, she showed us to a twin room, and then finally a double room in which we had paid... More

The room was good and big, but there are a lot of Bedbugs in the room and in the bed!!! It's really dirty. When you go to koh samui, there are a lot of better rooms for a better price! The location of the hotel is good, near by the beach and bars......
