      Cheap, decent hostel ”

      Super cheap hostel, beds are comfy with white sheets. About a 20 min walk to Ao Nang Beach,close to lots of resturants and night markets. Owners are very friendly and we played cards with them one night. They do coffee and breakfast in the morning for cheap. Shower area could do with an update but it's still OK, and for the price you can't complain!

      Had a great time here. It's everything you need in a Hostel. The staff are very friendly, the beds are comfortable and it has great ac which is important. They don't sell food yet but they say they are soon, but you can bring your own anyway. They also don't sell alcohol out of consideration for people with different beliefs but they have no problem with you bringing your own (there is a 711 just down the road). Great hostel

      Great big rooms, most with a balcony. There was a few problens with the cleanliness when we checked in, but we were too lazy to ask to have something done. The staff would for sure have done anything if we had asked. Placed according to maplocation, so expect a 15-20 minute walk to the beach. In return you find very cheap food nearby, and some nice bars. Would stay again.

      The hotel was overall clean and tidy. Except for the toilet, hopefully they'll improve the drainage system. The comfy bed and comforter are my favourite parts of all. The workers are okay but i like the male worker (we called him "abe") the most bcs he's very friendly and he helped us a lot in finding the best package for the beach and island tours. Ask him anything you need, he'll always be there to help! The atmosphere and other travellers were nice too :)

Pros - cheap acommodation - nice private rooms - AC Cons - Our toilet didn't flush for our entire stay - The wifi in our room was extremely bad - Expect a 20-30 min walk to the beach All in all, it was a hostel that had a lot of potential but felt effortless in making it attractive

      Dirty/stinky bathrooms, air conditioning at night ”

      Nice staff, clean beds, dirty bathrooms

      The staff here are nice, nothing special. The bathrooms are dirty clean, they smell really really bad. The air conditioning is only turned on from 10pm- and shut off promptly at 8am. Really frustrating as they advertise air conditioning. H

      A good stay for a budget traveller”

      Wifi is good, cosy matress

      Overall I had a wonderful stay here. The staffs are helpful and friendly. It's located a bit far from the beach and the AoNang crowd, so you should have to rent a bike to sprint around. Air cond only functioning from 10pm to 8am.
