Liked: I liked the appearance of the building from the outside. The staff were friendly and the AC worked well. There were computers for free use and a fully stocked kitchen.

Disliked: Each time you'd like to use the wifi you need to enter a username and password. That got old quickly. The rooms are quite tight and there's nowhere to lounge within them. The place was pretty deserted (may have been the season). The sinks were automatic but would only run for a few seconds making it difficult to wash your face.

Liked: clean, modern hostel, close to beach and shops. by far one of the best hostels i`ve stayed in so far and i travelled a lot. i really liked the beds (privacy curtains, tv, locker, bedlight, plug).

Disliked: i liked everything, anyway i`ve got two ideas. an activity/event board would be nice. it was sunday and i didn`t know there is a nightmarket going on. it would be nice to change breakfast from time to time. currently it`s a small breakfast, everyday the same (toast). cornflakes, joghurt or fruit could be offerd. but i don`t want to complain because it`s nice to have breakfast at all.

Liked: Absolutely, by far, the cleanist hostel I've stayed in. For the islands, it's really not that expensive. When travelling solo, bungalows are not always a good option because you have to pay the double or triple portions yourself. This hostel has a wonderful communal area - very comfortable.Love this place would highly recommend it.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Gorgeous modern Hostel with good upkeep. A great location to beaches and shops. A less chaotic area than Cheweng but still has plenty to do or is a short 100bt trip to party central. Met lots of great people in my room even though we had our privacy screens whch is a nice change from many Thai hostels. Communal showers on floor were kept clean as was everything else with the shoes off policy. Amazing showers. Comfy beds. Air con rooms. Good social areas.

Disliked: The 24hr reception is rarely maned but as you rarely need to talk to reception outside standard hours it wasn't personally a problem, just an observation. If you do want to party every night I would suggest staying elsewhere in Cheweng Beach. If you are doing tours and hanging at the beach it's perfect :-)

Liked: Very modern facility. Very clean rooms.

Disliked: There were some drunk old guys who were staying at the hostel blaring music at 7AM. The staff did nothing until there were repeated complaints from guests to ask them to stop and ask the staff for assistance. Eventually they did get booted, but the hostel staff should be more proactive with this sort of tthing.

Liked: It's duper cute and close to the beach which is right across the street through The Pavilion (same owner). Friendly staff and nice accommodation. Locker and tv in bed which is convenient and awesome! Mr. Oak and morning lady receptionist were awesome and personally made sure my stay is great and extremely helpful in making arrangements on the island. Good location on the island to relax but far from the downtown area if party is your scene.

Disliked: Rate is slightly on the high end for a hostel though the staff earns the merit.

Liked: had an awesome stay at I bed ended up staying longer than intended great place to meet people with a good communal area, really clean and comfortable. Loved the hostel rooms had own privacy curtains so could have own space but still meet everyone in the dorm. Area was slightly quiet but was low season, there are bars and resturants just up the street , great night market for food aswell. The beach is really close just had to walk thru the hostel opposite . Had an awesome stay here and meet some really great people. Staff were always helpful aswell.

Disliked: this hostel was a little bit expensive but well worth it .

Liked: The staff were so friendly and the hostel is amazingly clean. It felt much more like a budget hotel than a hostel. It is a 2 minute walk to the beach and for a small fee you can also use the facilities across the road in their sister hotel.

Disliked: As I was staying at the beginning of the full moon period the hostel was very quiet. I think at other times of the month it would be much busier. This isn't the fault of the hostel at all.
