I was looking forward to some days on the beach between travels in-lands....
The island was really nice - but with a lot of tourists - and had a lot of good beaches.

The hostel was really basic.. It was clean, the A/C was great and the rooms were big.
I had a few problems, however, with the staff..

It was hard to get in touch with the staff. They were rarely at the reception desk, so everytime we had to get in touch with them, we had to call from our own cell phone..
Our room did not get cleaned a single time during our 3-nights visit. Usually i don't have a big problem with this, but when you are at a beach location i tends to get very sandy in the room - a little annoying.

The place is close to the beach and the port though, so if you are looking for a few days on an island close to Bangkok, you can easily pick this place - I would however go for some of the other guesthouses, that you have to book off-line, when you arrive at the island..

I was a lttle afraid before reading reviews but I was really surprised, it is new, it is quiet and it is clean.

Prices is ok, you can deal directly also, during the weekend is more expensive and after 3 days they give you a discount if you dela there. As you are outside of the entree to the beach you do not pay the fee that you pay as foreigner. I am not against a fee to maintain a natural park ... but believe me they do not invest the money there ...

Some people write that it is 15 minutes to the beach and sorry maybe I am faster but is just 5 minutes...

At the reception usually there is not people but there is a cell number and the family is always around .. just ask in front.

I chose the place as it was new and the other places on the each in general are overpriced and not so clean.

You can take a ATV and go around the island, avoid to rent a motorbikes if you want to go around the island ... the holes on the road are so big that you bike can go inside ...

You have to deal for the bikes, better in the town...

When you arrive if you do not hvae plety of luggage you can go on foot it is really near

Room Tip: Ask for a room for Ac in the 2nd or 3rd floor

After staying in a bungalow on the beach which cost a fortune and was frankly terrible, we went looking for a new hotel and tried the side streets in the village and this is where we found this little gem!

The hotel is clearly brand new as some of the rooms still have plastic on the mattresses (the unused rooms of course at this point), and they really have done a fantastic job of it. The rooms are bright and airy with windows everywhere but excellent blinds for privacy. There's also a balcony and patio style doors for the front door and balcony door (whether this is a bonus or not is up to personal preferance. I liked it but my partner not so much).

The rooms are sparkling clean with a western style bathroom which is fantastic as you rarely will find that on this island. There's also a huge fridge and lcd tv (the only thing i would say is that there aren't any english speaking channels on the tv which they could do with adding at some point)
The best thing about it is that for all of this, the price is so low! You can have a fan or air con room and the price is loads cheaper than the other alternatives on the beach which offer you nothing for an expensive price.
The lady at reception helped us with laundry and everything too so we brought more people to the hotel.

The location is fine but is not on the beach (only 300 metres from the beach though), however it's down a side road that you have to find but dont worry as they have an A board on the main road walking down. The side road is nice and quiet but if its rained it may flood a little (but they put a sandbag walkway there for you when it floods).

Cant recommend this hotel enough if you are staying on Koh Samet on a budget!
