“Worth 5 stars purely because of the location and the price”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

For £5 a night per room, with a central location (literally right next to the super lively Arc bar, local clubs, 24h Burger King and McDonalds) you can't really go wrong. However, I wasn't expecting too much from the rooms - boy was I wrong.

Basic maintenance e.g. cleaning, topping up soap and toilet roll etc. were all done efficiently everyday. They do a really fast laundry service which is dirt cheap (you pay per Kilo as opposed to ITEM of clothing, as some hotels/hostels offer).

The beds and bathrooms are clean, and I would honestly pay £15 a night for this place. It's a steal, and a definite place to stay if you can't afford Ark Bar.

All in all, greatly pleased by this price during our stay during the full moon party. If I'm back in Samui, and budgeting, I'll most definitely be back again.

Room Tip: There is a cabaret show nearby the hotel. Ask for a room away from the show, assuming you go to slee...

Stayed in this hotel for the second time.
My first time was on 2010. And nothing changed since then. The rooms are clean and the location is absuloutly great! We paid a 800 baht a night and it was worth it.
Couple minutes walking from the beach and couple minutes of the bar alley.

I stayed here on my own for a few days on reccommendation from a friend. The price is fantastic for what you get. Decent size room, set out well, clean and with a good sized bed. My friends were literally across the road in Ark Bar so i used their pool. Restaurants and nightlife nearby. The staff were friendly and when i extended my stay i paid the same cheap price as I did with Agoda. Staff also waited around to clean rooms.
This is great for a central budget location if you want to party. The only drawback if you plan on early nights is that it is right next to the ladyboy cabaret which can be quite loud from about 8pm each night. I stayed out till the early hours each night so I don't know when this finished. Additionally a couple of times i could hear guests in their room, erm, getting intimate in the early hours. Other than that this place was excellent, I'd definitely come back here if i was on a solo budget trip again, though probably would go somewhere more upmarket if i was looking for a romantic getaway.

We stayed here at the end of a year travelling Asia, for 2 weeks of relaxing on the beach. After reading other travellers reviews of this place, I really don't know what people expect for this price. We paid $10US per night, and for that price, I couldnt of asked for more. The room was perfectly clean, a nice hot electric shower, air-con, fridge and cable television. you could very vaguely hear music from bars and clubs, but it didnt bother us at all. The place is bang in the middle of Chewang, and a 5 minute walk from the beach. Cheap laundry service, alcoholic and soft drinks and small snacks available from the front desk, and friendly staff who can help with oward travel plans. Fot the price, you really can't go wrong.

Stayed here in December 2012 for 2 nights.

Great little hotel, bit rooms, close to the action and cheap. Hot shower and air con. Personally i dont need too much more. It is basic but i was only in the hotel to sleep and get ready to go out and about.

The price is brilliant and would reccomend, in fact I am staying here on my next visit this December.

There is a lady boy show next door, but personally I did not hear any noise..

If you are a budget traveller who is out and part of the party then this is a great place to stay.
