We stayed here for 3 nights. When we arrived we ended up been upgraded from our originally booked 4 person room to two 2 person rooms. We were on the 5th floor and had a rooftop terrace. The rooms were clean and had air-conditioning and a fan. The owners were friendly and helpful. At night it obviously is quiet loud... More

Location is excellent. Close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and bars. Our AC room for 4 people had flat screen TV & fridge & private bathroom. Room price was cheap. The rooms were big and clean. First floor have Irish Pub with pool tables & reception area. Free wifi but it only worked downstairs. Staff was really nice and helpful.... More

The staff would not let me in or give me a spare key even though i had already been there for 4 nights so they knew full well i was staying there! Would not recommend to my worst enemy! VERY INCONSIDERATE STAFF You might aswell... More

Thank you for your review. Yes, unfortunately for some and fortunately to others we are located in the middle of the busiest party area in Koh Samui. So my advice if you want to have some fun time and want to party Moby Dick Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay. Everything is only step away from our guesthouse... bars,... More

booked to stay here after leaving another guest house for 3 nights. Only stayed 2 and refused to stay a third night. Worst place to stay if you want a good nights sleep. Music thumping from the club down stairs until 5am!. No sleep even after going out and coming home before 5am. Room was clean at least but very... More

When we first found this place, we were shocked that it would only be 500 baht for a double bed, air conditioned room. The room was bright and beautiful, with a fridge, balcony and SO clean. It was a great location during the day, but as soon as the night came.. Oh my god. I know reviews have mentioned the... More

Whenever i think of my stay here i laugh and shake my head... First time in Chaweng so we knew very little and we wanted somewhere cheap to lay our heads... The room was basic, stuffy and the bathroom was small. I think we got a complimentary bottle of water each which was probably the only good thing about it.... More

The guest house in it self is an average place with big rooms. The ground floor is a party bar with high music all night. We booked it for sleeping last night, and we were so tired we made it. But we did awake 4-5 times during the night because of the loud music. We had the top floor room,... More
