When I called the hostel to stay 2 nights, the Thai girl receptionist said they had a bed for me. When I arrived, she said I might have to go the next day since it was full. The next day, I had to go and just complained to her that she should've told the situation on the phone since I had to take a taxi and now had to look for another place for just 1 night. No one wants to move around after settling in. She said she loved her job and she was perfect for it or something and said "Oh my budda!!!" I guest she is not a budhist. Christians don't say something like that. Anyway, her English was good but not good manner overall. The hostel is basic with about 3 shower rooms and 2 toilets. They charge 30 baht for blanket since the aircon gets cold at night. Thanks to her, I found a private room with a fan for 250 baht in Saire Beach. Therefore, I was wrong that the hostel was the cheapest.
