    Above average”

    We stayed in the deluxe double room which was away from all the huts and the bar/restaurant. The owner was lovely and welcoming, very social. He did mention that because the rooms we were staying in was quite away, was more to not here the loud music at the bar but that wasn’t true unfortunately. The music was still very loud but only played until 12-1am ish. The food was ok. No WiFi in rooms! Mini market 5 min walk away. Other than that, nothing else to do apart from the beach and other resorts which is nice if you want to really relax and get away from all. Personally, it’s a little bit over priced.

    Pro Location - longset beach is amazing Locker size Large bar area Walking distance to main town Could be a good party if more ppl around Con Music sometimes at odd times and very bassy Quiet in low season - groups seemed to go elsewhere No-smoking rule in dorms wasn't enforced.. I didn't mention to staff, but I thought they would notice when cleaning room Additional :, previous reviews mention rats eating bags. I was aware of these reviews so I kept my bag elevated on the bed.. But I didn't see or hear evidence of any rodents Except for a hermit crab in the shower one day

    I think the highlights about this place are the location and the food. The bungalow was confortable and it had an air fan. The bathroom doesn't have a door, so it might be a bit un confortable if you need privacy. The shower has no power and didn't work properly, but you are in a paradise island!

    I left Malibu a day earlier than planned, as it was awful. Yes it has aircon in the dorm, but that's the only thing going for it. It was just full of under 25's who were only there to get drunk. Don't get me wrong I enjoy drinking and having a good time, but they just acted like drunk children. The WiFi doesn't work at all. The staff had a fight in the dorm and everything is over priced. Avoid if possible!

    This beach is very secluded from the main area - $5/person one way to get to/from Koh Touch, which is where everything is. Food is very expensive and mediocre. One positive thing: the beach hangout area was really nice - hammocks, lounge chairs, tables etc. Easy to relax and not have to get covered in sand. Seemed to be more bugs at Malibu than any other hotel/hostel on 4K beach. Ants were crawling all over everything. Crickets were jumping on me while eating dinner in the bar area. Bungalows were VERY open - large gaps in floor boards allowed for bugs and creatures to crawl in the room. Mosquito net did little to prevent bites. Bathroom in bungalow looked like it had been barely cleaned and toilet seat was not attached to toilet. I think this place opened up pretty recently and they could definitely use some work. I heard they are trying to become a party hostel, so music is on loud until around 12am or so and they throw parties during the week.

    Nice spot on the beach, good vibes at the bar”

    We had a lot of fun staying on Koh Rong, and did enjoy our Stay at Malibu Hostel. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Pros - Nice spot on the beach to relax and Swim. There are loungers and hammocks to relax in. Cons - This place is pretty pricey considering it doesn't even come with a bottle of water. Literally every place we have stayed since arriving more than a month ago provides this, for doing your teeth etc. Also, the food is quite pricey for what you get, we found better value elsewhere. Also, the beach is very dirty, having come from Samloem we were surprised they don't do a litter pick. This place is properly noisy, through out the night. No matter where your bungalow is situated. The bar is party party until dawn. Bring ear plugs. The bungalows are very open compared with other bungalows and therefore the most Mosquitos we've encountered. The mozzie net provided didn't help, you need deet all day and all night. I was eaten alive!

    Nice spot on the beach, good vibes at the bar”

    We had a lot of fun staying on Koh Rong, and did enjoy our Stay at Malibu Hostel. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Pros - Nice spot on the beach to relax and Swim. There are loungers and hammocks to relax in. Cons - This place is pretty pricey considering it doesn't even come with a bottle of water. Literally every place we have stayed since arriving more than a month ago provides this, for doing your teeth etc. Also, the food is quite pricey for what you get, we found better value elsewhere. Also, the beach is very dirty, having come from Samloem we were surprised they don't do a litter pick. This place is properly noisy, through out the night. No matter where your bungalow is situated. The bar is party party until dawn. Bring ear plugs. The bungalows are very open compared with other bungalows and therefore the most Mosquitos we've encountered. The mozzie net provided didn't help, you need deet all day and all night. I was eaten alive!
