“Great location, lovely staff!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Loved this place - cheap, very clean, lockers provided (you need your own padlock and key though), free wifi and we had a mini-breakfast included too. The location is fab - a 2min walk from the beach and the main street with clubs, bars, restaurants etc, yet down a little side street so away from the noise. Staff were lovely, really funny and helpful.

Only downer - the rooms were quite small so not much socialising happened there, and as there isn't really a communal area to hang out in (apart from the small reception), it isn't the best place to meet new people.

Hostel can never be found by taxis - ask for Mercure hotel and it's right next door!

Hostel is based at the end of the busy Chaweng road so it's a bit quieter, and you can get some sleep! It's a 2 min walk to the bustling street and you can find bars and restaurants etc.

Dorm rooms are big and clean. Would recommend for a pit stop.

The hostel is average, you get a downstairs locker for your valuables, bring your own padlock.

Room is ICE COLD, i loved it. Bed's were comfy. Night 1 i had a snorer so ran upstairs to an unused dorm at the top of the building, and mum told me off the next morning (playfully).

Location is ok, but get a moped from the hostel 150B for the day and the world your oysters.

Who is mum? the owner.. just a genuinely kind person who just wanted to give... so so nice. Always up for a chat... and good recommendations. Thanks for a great stay :) :)

Only bad note is it's a little hard to find, even google doesn't know where it is... Adv your taxi driver to go to the mecure hotel, it's on the same street.

Five of us only stayed one night, but we didn't have any problems (bar a short power cut due to heavy rain). Extremely clean room (we had to leave our shoes downstairs by the door) that had aircon, at a very low price. Good location, away from the noise but still fairly close by to the main stretch of shops/restaurants. We couldn't lock the room, but there were lockable boxes in the room. The beds were a bit cardboard-like and thin, but I didn't seem to have any issues sleeping.

In summary, great place to crash at if rooms prices are your priority. We stayed only one night because we wanted to be closer to the bars/clubs.

We booked for two nights in a 6 bed dorm, there was no lock on our door and we didn't have anywhere to lock all our luggage away. There was a small box for personal items, so we locked all our valuables in there, as we were asleep a maid came in and turns our air con off, we go out for the day and 5000thb had been taken from the box, the owner said she doesn't have a key and was very seedy. The money was defiantly taken. It put a downer on the whole stay and we checked out in the morning! Shame because the hostel was really clean and quiet but I just wouldn't take the risk.

Very clean. Very nice. Great location. The price is right for any backpacker. Quiet but close to the action. I will recommend this hostel to everyone I know. The staff can help with cheap motorbike. Best hostel I've stayed at. Two minute walk from a beautiful white sand beach. Staff can also help with travel and adventure. Really great staff. Very nice and comfortable accommodations. Allowed to check out late and shower before catching the ferry. Very friendly.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean and comfortable
