Liked: one of the best hostels I have been to in the whole world..and I have been a backpacker for the last 6 years, having travelled throughout usa, canada, australia, china, japan, and in the past (30 years ago) in Europe. Mr Kool and his crew have been very helpful in recommending good side trips such as snorkelling at Phi Phi Island. Location is next to a bus station so it is easy to get to the beaches, and at night, the huge common room with a large TV and many dvds provide good entertainment. I certainly recommend this place, and once word is out, I am sure the place will be very popular.
