“Lovely staff, clean comfy room/beds and great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

The staff are really friendly and the main woman who runs the hostel is more than helpful. The location is great- close to chaweng beach (3 minutes away), close to lovely restaurants and lots of nice shops. Stayed for 5 days in a clean air-coned 6 bed dorm (beds were super comfy) and each day the rooms and en-suit were cleaned and beds re-made. Free towels are available and the staff more willing to order taxi for great price.

Could be easily confused with Baan Smile Hostel- this is Baan Smile Place.

I have never written a trip advisor review before but thought this place was worth the extra effort! Thank you!

The hostel is in a great location, walking distance to all the shops and restaurants you would need and chaweng beach.

We stayed in a room that was for 6, and as there was 6 of us it was brilliant! It came with it's own bathroom which was a great size and the shower was lovely and warm!

The beds were fresh and clean and came with a DUVET!
The aircon was super and the room also had it's own lockers inside!

Probably the best thing about this hostel is the woman behind reception, she couldn't do more to help us! So so lovely! She also let us come back for a shower even once we had checked out with free use of their towels!

Also do note that this is baan smile place and is in a much better location than baan smile hostel!!

A brilliant stay!!!!

I've stayed there almost one week and I fall in love with this hostel. Despite of the truth that the hostel is so small,only has 2dorm and 1private room, there are friendly staffs who always taking care of you. And it is a family run hostel, I get known to her mother and father and the mother treated me watermelon shake when the day was extremely hot outside.
So happy that I spend 6days here and if I have time I will come back again. Goodbye O Sao and Diao....

Nice, clean hostel with friendly people who work there. The location is a 15 min walk to the main area, but you can easily take a tuk tuk there.
Nice comfy beds and hot shower!
The WiFi does not work in the dorms, only in the reception area where they have couches where everyone sits and chills, great way to meet and talk to people.

I had one awesome week at this wonderful hostel. The quality of service, room and facilities were fantastic.
Pls pass on my thanks to Oh, your staff, who went to that extra effort to make us feel extremely welcome.
I will absolutely return in the future, and I will also recommend Baan Smile Place to all of my friends.
Many thanks,
Zara

Lovely hostel, staff are very friendly and helpful. Staff met us from the port and drove us to the hostel. Very clean and tidy. Location in good, closer to the quiet end of the beach however it is only a 15 minute walk to the more lively part and the very popular Ark Beach Bar. Only negative thing we would say is that the shower wasn't hot, however this was not a massive problem and also there was not a particularly social area to meet other guests. Would recommend a stay here
