This place is very central and not expensive for the actual rooms. However they charge to use the lockers and 150 baht to have breakfast (looks like just toast and cereal, you can get a full fry up for the same price locally!). The service is not amazing either, perhaps the name is making up for the lack of smiles on their faces...! The beds are a bit hard and the sun hardly reaches the main pool all day (but there is small pool that does however). The bathroom had lots of ants which sometimes made their way into the bedroom area.... Also there are big gaps on the doors so not soundproof (nor very insect proof!).
Also 36 hours before we were due to check out, we put our laundry in after asking if it should be done in time and they said it would be done the next night. Turns out the next day was cloudy and it wasn`t dry. When we asked about it they gave it to us unfolded and still damp. We asked for it to be hung up again for the night. We got it back the next morning folded, but we were missing lots of underwear and socks (we didn`t realise until our next stop on Koh Tao...).
Ok for a couple of days maybe, but they need some work on their service!
