          Used Salsa Hostel as a stopover spot before the nightferry from Chumphon the next night. I looked around town and he offered the cheapest ticket prices! The owner even offered me to stay in their movie-area for the 6 waiting hours while it was pouring down outside. Beds are comfy and cozy. Try the muslim restaurant direction trainstation after 100m on the right. Delicious food! Staff is super helpful and organized. 10 out of 10! I'd come back.

          We stayed 4 nights at the Salsa Hostel and it was a very pleasant experience. The stuff was very helpful, we could check in early and got a Matress incl. Pillows etc. because our room wasn't ready and the last day we could stay another 9 hours longer to wait for our train. The bed was amazing, our room felt like a good hotelroom. I would't stay anywhere else in Chumphon!

          my girlfriend and i stayed here for one night on our way to koh tao and found it to be a really nice hostel. we were supposed to arrive at 10 pm but our train from kuala lumpur but didn't arrive until just after 1 am and the owner stayed u p and waited for us to help us get settled. such a nice friendly guy. he even booked our ferry ticket for us to have ready for the morning. we had a nice big room with our own ensure. the room was very clean and had a/c - which was a big deal after spending more than 20 hours on a train. the next morning the owner sent one of his staff to the train station to book our train ticket to bangkok for us so we could explore chumphon. overall a really nice stay. felt very welcome there and couldn't beat the staff for helpfulness.

          I enjoyed my stay in salsa hostel. The staf is really nice, helpful and has humor. The hostel is modern, clean, with good situation. 5minutes walking from the train station and directly on the night market. Possibility to rent a motorbike and discover beaches or national park around chumphon. If you are just in transit, so let your bag, take a beer and meet other travellers. I recomand.

          It has everything a backpacker needs and wants. Quarters, toilets and bathrooms were clean and modern. AC was in great working condition unlike some. Had one of the best laughs in months here watching one of the films (Brothers Grimsby) offered at the hostel for free with other travelers. Staff spoke English fairly well, while the owner spoke fluently. Location is right on the street with the mall, night market and many other stalls. Definitely the only hostel I'll consider if I were to visit Chumphon again.

          I loved this place”

          Pros: -staff are just lovely -most "free breakfasts" are crap like just free toast and jams/ butters, but Salsa offered eggs, fruit, cereal, toast (w/ butters/ jams), coffee/ tea,. It was perfect. -they have movies galore for you to watch in the common space on the 2 floor -washrooms were so clean! -dorm room wasn't overcrowded like I've seen at other places, and they had a rack to dry clothes/ towels in the room Con: - this isn't really a big deal at all but the ONLY thing I could think of was maybe curtains for each bed as it gives a little bit of privacy but this wasn't an issue for me here as the people I shared the room with were so friendly. I LOVED this hostel. I would definitely come back here.

          My friend and I stayed only for a night because we had our flight from Chumphon the next day but we were surprised how clean and big the hostel was. They had everything we needed and the beds were comfy and the rooms were clean. Location is right in the center. It‘s also a good place to stay if you need one or two nights rest before continuing your journey. A quick visit to the night market is worth it. Thanks again!

          Booked one night at Salsa hostel, as a transit stop between Koh Tao and our train to Bangkok, but ended up staying an extra 4 nights. The dorm room is very clean, tidy, with great additions such as a fridge and reading lights. The bathrooms were spotless and the showers were hot. Breakfast was a buffet with a great selection, amazing for the 250 baht night stay! And the staff were super friendly and went out of their way to help us. Best thing of all - its on the market street full of cheap street food, and only 15 mins from the most beautiful white beach in Thailand!

          Great experience”

          This is one of the best budget options I have ever stayed at! Very clean room and great facilities located right in the heart of Chumphon town. I was only going to stay one night but the owner was very friendly and had great recommendations for activities and sight seeing in town so I stayed longer. I will definitely return to this awesome place in the future to check out some more cool little spots in the area and share some travel experiences with Khun Sood. Khap khun Krap! Thank you so much!

          Great location, big and clean room

          This hotel has very good location in Chumphon, it's easy to find. Room is big and clean, the staff is very nice and can speak good English. But our room is close to road, it's a bit noisy when there is a Sunday market. Anyway it's a quite good place during the stopover.

          This hostel had a great location. Close to bus and train station. It was very clean and relaxing and beds were very comfortable. The owner was friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about chumphon and transport options to/from and around chumphon.

          Wonderful hostel and good fun in Songkran”

          Salsa provides all the comfort a backpacker needs. Clean bathroom, AC room with comfortable bed and clean surroundings. We celebrated Songkran at the hostel with a morning water fight out on the street, which was a lot of fun. I would recommend this hostel to anyone

Best thing about the salsa hostel was the staff, very friendly people and I even got a free breakfast in the morning, wich wasn't included with the room when I booked. I would Stay here again. Nice wallpicture too

          Good for a night before heading to Ko Tao/ other islands”

          I stayed in this hostel for one night before heading to Ko Tao and had a comfortable stay here. The beds are alright, there's a food market street right outside, it takes about 15 min to walk from the train station and the staff is really helpful in case of questions 😊the town isn't really special though. Thanks Salsa Hostel:)

          Thanks for your review and comment. We are conveniently located near to Chumphon Night Market where the street food paradise is. You can get a cheap and good Pat Thai (Stir fried noodle in sweet & sour sauce in Thai style), pan cake (Roti) and of course the saffron rice with deep fried chicken. If you were not in a hurry, I could suggest you few places before heading to Koh Tao. Chumphon is like a hidden gem which is still untouched and overlooked by many tourists. I hope you return to Chumphon again so that I can suggest you the places to visit. Cheers/ Sood

          Lovely clean hostel”

          Very clean, air-conditioned dorm, friendly staff, breakfast included

          A really lovely clean hostel, very close to the train station (which was a requirement for us). The man on the desk was very friendly and helpful. We also booked our boat to Koh Samui with him, which was reasonably priced and included transport from the hotel to the pier (45 mins). The dorm was very clean, and with only 3 bunks meant it was not too noisy. Air-con made the room very comfortable. There wasn't much space to put bags, so I probably wouldn't want to stay longer than 1 night, but it was ideal for our short stop. Lockers are also free for valuables, but you need to bring a lock. The living room and bar space are clean and comfortable, and well stocked. I have to say the whole place was spotless - shiny and clean, even the shower and toilets. Would defiantly recommend this to anyone looking for a short stop and might try one of their private rooms for a longer stop.

          Room is large and clean; staff friendly and helpful; location good.

          We spent 2 nights at Salsa at the end of Jan and were very impressed - got a lot more for our money than we expected. The room was large, clean and the bathroom in good condition. Towels, soap, free water all provided and changed/replenished. Best of all were that they were extremely helpful: I e-mailed them before we arrived to book our visa run to Burma and our tickets to Ko Samui. These were ready to collect from reception as soon as we arrived. Nice central location. Free wifi which was ok. Would definitely recommend.

          Good value for money, helpful & friendly staff”

          We booked a twin/double room for one night. After reading the reviews about the noisy street we requested a room on the backside. Got a quick and friendly reply that these rooms were all booked but we could still cancel or transfer to partner hostel. We decided to stay here anyway and the noise wasnt top bad! The ac levelled out the sound :-) we were offered free breakfast, so friendly and very tasty. Perfect place to stay and close to night market and train station. Very spacious double room, well worth the money.
