Live love love this place!! I stayed in lonely beach for about 5 nights, every night stayed at a different place trying to find the best one. I heard about sleepy own but they were fully booked so I kept checking daily and they had a spot! I took it and I wish I stayed my whole 5 days with them!!! Such a wonderful little single house/room. Literally all you need. Single elevated mattress, sink shower and toilet. Also has a backyard gate so it's quite safe as you'd only know about it if you staying there. I would however recommend to the hostel owners to invest some money in a few hooks on the walls as my room only had 1 and maybe one or two shelves :)
Cozy place near beach”
I enjoyed my stay in the Sleepy Owl Hostel, the rooms are comfortable and they have a restaurant attached to the hostel. However it's at the other side of the island and takes a while to get there from where the ferry leaves you.
I really like the sleepy owl. It’s simple but clean. The bed is comfortable and the staff are nice. I’d definitely stay here again for that price
Best Pizza on the Island and probably in Thailand!”
I booked a private room that was quite basic but enough for me alone. The mattress was a little thin and hard but I still slept well the entire time. My friends in the dorms had thick mattresses, AC and curtains and stairs to the top bunk, it actually looked better than mine! The only thing about my room was that there were no hooks for towels or anything. The location is perfect, it's right off the main street and the rooms are inside so its not that noisy or loud. You still hear a little bit of the music but that's normal. There's a water filter in the common area kitchen so you can refill your bottle! And the pizzas are known to be the best in town! My only complaint was that I waited till the last night to try it! I wished I had it earlier! The cafe looks like it belongs in Bangkok, it's so fancy but prices are decent! I would certainly go back again when I am in Koh Chang!
Modern hostel that needs TLC”
The staff are nice and work hard. This review isn't a reflection of them, more management. Sleepy Owl has a huge damp problem which you can smell as soon as you walk in. Every morning the walls are covered in water from condensation, dripping down. The door to the dorm also expanded during the stay because of rain meaning it no longer fit the doorway and couldn't close or lock. I was sleeping in an open room every night not to mention my belongings were left in a open room all day, open to anyone who wanted to go in. Guests or non guests. There was a ridiculous amount of bugs everywhere making the place feel dirty. Swarms of moths around the lights and in the kitchen. The bugs lay dead in the morning. The bedding: only the sheet and pillow case are changed or 'cleaned' between guests, you can smell other people on the duvet and the sheets and duvet are often stained or riddled with marks. I checked in and asked fo my bedding to be changed straight away because of dirty bed sheets.
Great Value for Money”
Pros: nice, well kept room. Very convenient, central location. Comfortable bed. Ensuite bathroom and sink. Excellent WIFI. Cons: No towel! Construction noise after 10 am or so. Also: I was concerned about the music from the bars and clubs nearby, but it wasn't a big deal - the Owl is far enough away that you either can't hear the bass or it's very very faint.
Its near of everything. 5min to beach. Also you can not hear ANY noise inside room And that is just amazing, becouse of location. Free coffee all day. Just one remark, no towel included. This is my pick everytime in koh chang!
Favourite hostel on Koh Chang!”
It's clean and, altough situated in the heart of Lonely Beach area, very quiet hostel, definitely my favourite on the whole island. Highly recommended!
I opted for a private single room which was clean and comfortable, although a bit tight for space with no wardrobe or drawers and no a/c. The dorm rooms have all that and are a bit more modern if that's what you like. The cafe is great, and perfect location central in Lonely Beach.
Good location, decent hostel”
Pleasant place to stay, but there is definitely room for improvement. The hostel feels like a forgotten part of the cafe. The private rooms vary wildly in quality, the dorms have a damp stench in them, and there's a pipe near the common area that occasionally spews nasty smelling water. But it's cheap for Koh Chang, far enough from the loudest bars to sleep easily most nights, and relatively short walk to the beach. Lots of good restaurants within a minute or two walk.
Nice place but really really hot room”
Good cheap place near Lonely Beach. However the fan room was extremely hot and I am used to the heat but this was like sauna status. It would be really good if the hostel invested in screen doors so you could get some air flow at night.
Nice staff, good wifi, basic room”
The staff was really nice and friendly, the room basic but clean, overall really worth the money. Also really close to lonely beach , 5 minutes walk.
The hostel is so excellent to value for money, very cheap, quiet and private. Their cafe is so lovely and nice. The place is nearly restaurant, bar and can walk to beach. Should be try to rest this hostel!!!
Don’t stay in the single rooms”
I’ve stayed at this hostel a few times and the hostel rooms are great, a little moist but AC keeps it cold. The single rooms however are not up to par. Bathroom had no hot water or toilet paper. You’re much better off staying in the dorm rooms, they’re small amount of beds so you’ll never have more than 3 others staying with you and plenty of space.
Clean hostel in middle of Lonely beach”
Nice clean hostel in the middle of everything. Towels can be rented for 50 baht and 50 baht deposit. Rooms are a little moist when AC is on but beds super comfy and 4 beds in each room so hostel is quaint and quiet.
Worthy and cozy”
Staffs were very friendly. They gave me a very good suggestions. The room was tiny but I didn't feel uncomfortable. Actually, It kinda made me feel cozy. Location was also great. It near the bars and the beach and everything. The price is super cheap as well. I would definitely come back again!
Pretty good value for money”
The beds were comfortable and it was quiet, so I was able to have a good night of sleep. The hostel was mostly clean. It was lacking common areas and it was really empty so it is hard to meet new people. The location is perfect, really close to everything. The staff is ok, not super helpful and smiling but still helped us with questions we had. For the price, it’s good but it is not very social.
Good basic budget accomodation”
The accommodation is very basic but provides everything you need. Private toilet and shower, Fan and a comfortable single mattress. Close to everything at Lonely Beach and far enough away to escape all the noise from the bars. It would be hard to find another private room with better value.
good for this price”
nice and cheap, for those who want to be near to lonely beach
Perfect location in Lonely beach ”
If you are the type of person who wants to be near the night life but doesn’t want to hear the night life when you try to sleep, this is the perfect place for you! The facilities are great and it is the cleanest hostel I’ve ever stayed in!
