I stayed at Walker's for 4 weeks whilst I was volunteering and I couldn't ask for a better experience from Andy, Joo and their wonderful daughter Enya. I settled in as soon as I arrived, for any traveler Andy is perfect any advice for travelling locally and getting around to other places like the Islands. You get the perfect balance between Thai cuisine and western comforts. The food is delicious, I stayed there so long I practically tried everything on the menu. The hostel is an ideal location, a 2 minute walk from the beach; shops and other local amenities are close as well. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and the showers hot, there's a choice to stay in a dorm or a double private room. Downstairs there's free internet access and two TVs that you can get satellite on so you can catch up on sports or choose from the several channels. The family atmosphere is maintained by the family who run the place and when you arrive you are welcomed with open arms.
