We really enjoyed our stay at Su Casa - we stayed in the triple room and there was plenty of space for the three of us to move around. Really impressed with the air conditioning - it worked really well and was very pleasant to come back to a cold room after spending the day in the heat! The room was very clean with towels provided and nice bedding. I will be recommending to friends who are travelling to Thailand soon as location is fantastic with it being only 5 mins from the pier and right beside loads of great restaurants and markets. If you are going to the full moon party then a taxi will not cost much to get there from Su Casa - around 100 baht each and it's easy enough to get back for the same price too.

The owner is so friendly and helpful! He takes people around the Island on amazing day trips, he arranges for taxis to take people to parties and the ferry and stuff. He also arranged pre drinks to be had in the dorm before everyone leaves. He is generally just a really nice guy and he definitely made the stay for me!

Great clean hostel with a good location, calm but yet close to everything. The owner Golf is the nicest guy you will ever meet, and makes sure you have a wonderful stay. He took us around the island to some great beaches, and even threw a barbecue at the hostel for all the guests. Absolutely recommended, best hostel i came across in all of thailand!

If you want to party, this is definitely the right place for you! If you want to chill out and sleep without any music, you should better search for something else. The beach near the hostel is definitely not the most beautiful on the island but you can rent scooters which is the best way to discover the island. The location of the hostel is okay, you have a big supermarket and some food stalls around and if your luggage is not too heavy you can even walk from/to the pier. No taxi needed in my opinion.

The place itself was pretty and the walk through the boulders to each cabin was awesome. The beach is nice and the restaurant is moderately priced. The location is really remote so it's nice to get away from all the action especially during Full Moon Party but there is nothing else where this place is so you either have to go all the way to town or stick with what the property provides.

The bungalows are scattered along the seculded Than Sadet beach, which has a good amount of visitors but not too many. The road to the bungalows are wide and new, but please be careful of the sandy areas! My friend slipped and is now in hospital with 60 stitches.We stayed in the bungalows on the river which were very nice; a balcony, mosquito net for the bed, and a nicely decorated bathroom. Towels, soap and water were provided, which was a nice surprise. The food in the restaurant was pretty good as well!There's also a taxi boat to and from the Full Moon party.While electricity was not always on, during the weekend we were there, the electricity would stay on until late hours of the night (around 4am). Hopefully the owners will be able to provide more electricity since it's important for travellers to charge phones and cameras!
