Check in was smooth. We originally booked a fan room, but Matt the manager told us that the hotel was full and that we got moved to an a/c room, so we could pay if we'd like to use the a/c. First impression was that the room was simple but nice(313) the bed is very comfortable. The room was still...

I was very happy with my stay. It was cheap and right on the beach. I stayed in one of the capsule rooms and paid less than £100 for 3 weeks. Just can't beat it! Staff was always nice and it is very central. I had a look at one of their double rooms but decided to stay on the...

On arrival, the pounding music from the bar opposite really had me worried that I wouldn't be getting any sleep! Tv never worked in the room, flys in the bathroom were in there 100s and the smell in there was awful. The back door opened on to a wall. The pool doesn't come with this hotel and it's certainly isn't...

Hi David, Thanks for taking the time to leave your review. The air freshners were in the dorm not to "hide the smell" from the toilets as you initially claimed but rather to freshen up the corridor. Nevertheless, these were moved to the bathrooms upon your request- apologies if it took a bit longer than expected but during busy times...

Stayed here on my latest visit to Koh Samui and for the price I didn't expect much. The room was simple but clean and staff were super friendly!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in the dorms.
