“Great place to stay in Ao Nang!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

I have just left Popeye Guesthouse today (but have booked in for 3 more nights at the end of my trip). I stayed with my boyfriend here for 1 week and loved it! The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The guesthouse has everything you need, free wifi everywhere, laundry service, restaurant where you can get a cheap breakfast, 3 mins from the beach.. And the best bar in Ao Nang called Dream bar! It's only a very small bar but it is owned by a lovely Thai lady called Yaya who is so nice and chatty and gets everyone involved. They have a few games like Jenga and the music is played from You Tube so you can put on whatever you want. The prices for everything are very reasonable from the room to the white wine. If your travelling on a budget, this is the place for you!

Stayed January 2013, traveled as a couple

i stayed there for 1 night with a friend. I called the guesthoues 1 day before I arrived, that I was going to check in late, and woman staff said no problem, she even thanked me for calling & letting her know, so that she'll expect me & save the room for me! That impressed me already :)

The entrance to the room might not look very nice, but it doesnt matter. We chose fan room, and room is very new & clean. Toilet is very clean too, with hot shower. Free wifi worked so great. We slept so well. No problem at all. And it cost only 500 Baht. So, strongly recommend!

First up; this isn't a bad place to stay and we had a few things go wrong and that soured our experience a bit.
We have stayed in a lot of accommodation in this price range and maybe we have been spoit up to now!
The good:
Frosty air con
Good tv
Fridge

The bad:
Small
Noisy- from water pipes? Not sure
Toilet leaked- not resolved
No blanket provided.
Recommended a bent travel agent to us

$22/ 700b for a night isn't a lot I know but I do think that this is probably one of the worst ones we have stayed in, in that price range in two months.

The other reviews are definitely right in their positives but maybe I am getting grumpy after being ripped off by travel agent, awake early from noise and wet feet every time I go in the bathroom.

Still it's in a good location and I've seen a lot worse for a lot more!

Sitting firmly on the fence...

Perfect little place to stay while in Ao Nang. Right in the centre and close to the beach too. Very clean and cosy.
And staff is so nice. I asked about the safe , when I first check in, cause I thought there might be one at the reception where I can leave my passport and valuables, and the guy who checked me in just said: “one moment” and next minute he arrived into my room with safe in one hand and drill in other hand. Within next 5 minutes, the safe was fixed to the wall in my room.
How amazing is that! These people are so nice. They have a little bar and laundry washing service. They will make you feel very welcome during your stay.
If you do not manage to book online, just turn up and they might have rooms available anyway.

Recommended by a friend and so pleased we stayed there. Two minutes walk to the seafront and with all amenities right on your doorstep. The rooms are large and very clean and have all you need for a comfortable stay. The little bar at the front run by Yaya is so friendly and we passed two very pleasant evenings drinking and chatting.

I have been staying at many budget guesthouse's in the past 10 weeks. This is one of the top for value, service, location and room condition. The rooms have large bed, air con, fan, tv, safe, good hot shower and are just the right size. The cost per night is 400 baht.

The husband and wife who own it are very friendly - they also have a small bar and the massage parlour on the corner. A girl called yu yu works the bar and was always interested to help. She speaks good English and has an interesting personality.

I stayed at another place for 650 baht up the road before popeye guesthouse and it wasn't the same quality.

It is in a great location, just 5 mins away from the beach - across from subway. There are food stalls and good cafes in walking distance (try ao nang boat noodle). There is a laundry service next door (35Bt/KG) and a little tour desk on the corner (after massage shop) where the lady sorted me out with many trips for a good price. ( 4 island trip - B400, Hong island - B600, Phi phi by speedboat - B900, transfer to koh lanta minibus B300)

I would say if you looking for a cheap, clean, safe, friendly place to stay - popeye is for you! A
