Really good hostel with perfect location near lots of food, shops and locals. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Helped us book a ferry to Koh Tao - perfect for backpackers. The hostel also has a very cute and cuddly cat, willing to befriend anyone.

Was only here for one night, but very nice hostel. Most importantly very clean facilities and comfortable beds! I was lucky enough to have a dorm room all to myself so I slept fantastically :) friendly staff, cheap rate and central location, maybe I will stay longer next time!

The 5 stars go to Sood, the hostel's owner, for being a fantastic tour guide and showing us around Chumphon.
