I was really looking forward to go here. It was a nice place to be but the staff didn't speak any English. I finally found two who did but they were never there. Before I came I tried to reach them for several times by telephone and by e-mail, but I got no response at all.
Tripadvisor

The taxi driver couldn't find the place and when he finally did, we thought is was closed. Well, it was open but the staff was very lousy!
I was one of the maybe 2 guessts. At the end I noticed that my money was stolen! € 200 was gone: out of my closed room!!! The staff didn't care at all(???) and I do understand because I'm 100% sure one of the staff members did it!!!!
So I've only got one advice: do NOT go there!

The hotel is far away for everything if you wanna go some place you need to rent a bike. The bamboo bungalow is like a tent is very small and the window doesn't close, that s why someone put your arm per the window and stole our money, 210€, note, the camping or hostel is far way for everything so no outsider go there for steal for sure, and no customers during the day there for sure. The help that we had from the staff was zero, nothing, no money back no solutions, no sorrys nothing. Unfortunatelly even the owner wasn t present wich could had support us on this unusual situation, we travel a lot and never before. It s a shame. This type of situation can destroy your holidays!

Chill place wanna be - but there's much to go until being such a place. The ones starting this business are not the owners any longer. And the current owners seem not to know why are they there or how to run this business.

We have booked this place on hostel world and it looked appealing. In the confirmation email we have received some directions but useful for somebody knowing the area and having a car. Therefore, for us, the directions were kind of useless.

We tried reaching them multiple times over the phone prior to our departure from Malaysia to Thailand - Krabi but with no luck. The phone number provided in the confirmation email was invalid. We did not know if this place really exists nor if it worth bother to go there.

We managed to find a local bus from Krabi to Ao Nang and luckily the driver knew the place. All in one it sorted out just fine, but we also realized how far away is this place from the main walking street on the Ao Nang beach. About 7 km away. And the place really exists.

We were told that the booking we have made through hostel world was not visible for the owners of this place. Luckily they still had rooms available. It's not acceptable to have such a bad booking management "system". We took a house rather than a bamboo hut because it just seemed bigger and more comfortable. The prices were 500 BH per hut per night sleeps 2- and 700 BH per house per night sleeps 2.

The house was having just a fan, no AC and no hot water. Hot water is supposed to be a rare happening in Thailand. But considering the temperatures, it's not such a big issue. All in one the house was ok.

The common area was quite good, and you could easily just gather up and meet the other guests. But it is missing the personality. There is a small bar with really good music. You can easily spend time in the common area, order a drink from the bar and enjoy the good music.

The food you can order is just OK, but nothing more and it is quite expensive. The thing is that you really can't just easily go out into the city and have something to eat. You feel like trapped in this isolated place.

Your only option is to rent a bike and it will make your stay much much better. For 200 or 250 BH per day you can have your own bike. Otherwise you can arrange taxis to Ao Nang for 50 BH per person or benefit one of the free taxis that run on fixed hours. If coming back at late hours, a tuk tuk taxi from Ao Nang will ask you for 300 BH. You can negotiate it down to 150 or even 100 if you're lucky. But it needs a lot of time to bargain.

The wifi is only available in the common area and it is pretty good.

The staff there is ok but other than the guy at the bar, the rest barely speak English.

Constructions are still on going to expand this place - they even want to build a pool. But no matter how luxurious the place will become - if they don't give personality to this place, then it's useless.

Not looking forward to go back again.
