Super cheap (100 baht for a dorm!), located in Baan Tai, great common area. Right on a beach (admittedly not the nicest beach in the world), but run really well by the staff and generally a pleasure to have stayed.

Get ready to have fun and meet a lot of great people at this hostel. Opens up right onto the beach, plenty to do, plenty to see. The ladies in the kitchen do an incredible job, the food is fantastic. Staff is great, a real fun bunch of folks. You should stay here.

location was great! across the street there are plenty of places to eat, even a 7/11. the food at the hostel was good too. Located right on the beach, however there are fishing boats near the hostel so you can walk down the beach a little bit to get away from nets and such. But even walking was really nice...

Great staff, great atmosphere but the very best thing is the puppies. Right on the beach. You can party or chill. Top notch place so much so that the lovely Chloe missed her flight to stay and work, she will be an amazing addition!

Stayed here at the end of my trip. It was one of the best hostels i've stayed at. So cheap and facilities are great. Staff are helpful and fun. Good hostel if you want to socialise and party, but you can also chill out and relax if you're not into it. And they had puppies while i was there
