I spoke to Dolly on the phone before making my reservation and she seemed nice but a bit too chatty. I should have known something was suspicios when she told me she lost the keys of the place and that she didn't know what say it was. I get to chaweng beach at around 9 and I call her because...

I stayed here one night. I took one look and wanted to leave, but my travel buddy thought it was cheap and I didn't want to argue. We were only staying in Ko Samui for 2 nights anyway. Needless to say we checked out the next morning. The place is a dump. They were renovating and I am willing to... More

Before we booked our stay here we researched it online via tripadvisor and hostel world. Both sites confirmed that the hostel had all of the facilities that we were looking for, Clean but basic and for the... More

Absolutely loved staying here. Only two rooms in the hostel , which means everyone has a chance to get to know each other. I met some really great people, and everything is so close it was easy for us to get around. Beach is only a two minute walk away, and there is a nice chill out area that we... More

I was woken up by a member of staff at this hostel who had his hand on my back side. I was forced to leave and very freaked out. If you are a lone female traveler do not stay here as for 50 baht more you can get a private safe room! In addition, the hostel is hard to find... More

This is a serious personal attack on my manager. He has a record of exemplary behaviour and it is extremely unlikely that he would behave in such a manner. I can only say that the allegation was made during the festive season and having a mixed dorm there would have been a lot of partying and drinking going on and... More

This basic dorm style hostel is clean and friendly. The location is great, so close to the beach and the nightlife. There is complimentary toast and coffee in the morning and tv for relaxing in front of. Each bed has its own mosquito net and all in all, it is a great value.
