        There are funeral banquets outside the property. The party takes few days. People are gathering outside, have meals and drink whisky to celebrate memory of deceased. Partys starts about 7pm and take whole night. Hostel have wooden walls so it makes impossible to sleep. I left the place and found something else.

        I took the private room. No mosquito nets on the window, and holes in the wall between the wooden slabs, so I got beaten by mosquitos really bad. No blankets, only a cover that has a towel type fabric which is weird. I got there late at night and had to leave in the morning, when I came to ask for information I was told that until 9 am it was possible to book taxi+ferry service, but the front desk was open only at 9 am more or less, and I was there around 9:10 and it wasn’t possible to get the service anymore, and then I had to pay double for the cab because the place is very far for everything. The room actually has 2 single beds that are set one close to the other, so no 1 normal double bed.

        Best hostel in all of Thailand, clean traditional thai house, close to the beach, quiet area.”

        So far this has been my favorite hostel in Thailand, it was extremely clean, close to the W coast beach (which is the quieter side of the island) If your looking for a spot away from tourist this is it however, it wasn't too far from that either. Attentive staff, great breakfast, and the thai house experience. They give you towel, and blanket. I will stay here again.

        Great Hostel with a Tremendous Owner”

        This is the best experience I have had at a hostel in Thailand. The owner Champu is very helpful and incredibly nice. I checked in late in the evening, and she invited me to have dinner with her and her friend. The hostel itself is also about 30m from a very quiet beach. It is a great place to relax and take a break. The beds are new and comfy. The hostel itself is a very cool converted old home. I cannot recommend this hostel enough!

        Recommendation!”

        The hostel owner was the most lovable host I've had for a long time! I asked her for organising a transport to Chaweng and then, she told me that she can take me there for free because of an appointment she have :) Also the hostel is very clean and cozy. It is located close to the beach and some restaurants. If you want to relax and try to avoid the crowd on the east side of the island - This is your place to stay!

        Conviviale”

        Les gens qui tiennent cette auberge font leur métier avec passion et amour. Une gentillesse extraordinaire et un goût du partage. Nous avons dormi dans la seule chambre privée le reste étant des dortoirs. Les pièces communes sont très agréable et le principe du petit déjeuner est très bien !!

        朝食付きとなっていたが・・・”

        プライベートビーチなんて表記がありますが海辺に立地しているわけではありません。名前もですが シングルルームを利用したがバルコニーもテラス有りません。 また朝食付きと有りますが、セルフで食パンだけ後はインスタントのコーヒーと紅茶のみでこちらから聞かないと案内すら有りません。宿主は電話をしているかパソコンで動画を見てるかでやる気なし。 チェックイン時も電話をされていて目の前で待っているにもかかわらず5分以上おしゃべりを止めることはありませんでした。アゴダさんラスト1部屋て表記止めませんか1部屋しか無いところは。

        除了房间一股油漆味外,其他很完美”

        好奇为什么那么性价比高的旅馆居然没有人评价,在苏梅岛这个地方住宿特别贵,这里简直不要钱一样,这里人少,很舒服,如果你喜欢人少安静的话相信我选择这里你不会后悔
