We arrived at the lounge 29th dec in preparation for NYE on Koh phangan. The hostel was booked up so bookings are recommended. We had booked 3 nights over the new year period to chill out and nurse our hangovers! We booked a double superior air con room. When we got to the hotel the English speaking owners (Adam from Manchester and his girlfriend Greta from America) were Super friendly and welcoming greeting us warmly and showing us the common room and kitchen and straight up to our room. It's safe to say our room was sparse - literally just a bed and a wardrobe in a pretty big room. It was very empty and we expected bed side tables or a desk at least! The bathroom was basic but clean and quite big. The only issue we had was that the shower drain was partially blocked and the floor was flat so the water instantaneously flooded after the shortest of showers and sometimes leaked into the bedroom but with tiled floors and such hot weather it dried quickly. The location was not excellent, a 5-7 minute walk to bangrak beach but we soon realised that Chaweng was the best location on samui. The walk Ito town was wet and pot holey but bangrak beach was nice and quiet and chilled - what we wanted. All in all, a nice place. We ended up staying 8 nights so pretty decent! Friendliest owners around though hands down. Thanks Adam and Greta!
