Dear Ksenia, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We're sorry our hotel was not up to your expectations. You requested a room with a balcony even though none of our rooms are advertised as having a balcony on any of our booking sites. You wrote this to us in the "remarks" section of the booking where...

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! Going above and beyond to help out whilst others in more "expensive" hotels couldn't care less about their guests and more interested in their phones. I did notice some guests making un-merited...

The room was very big and clean, a little dark as it only had a small window towards the hallway but that did not bother us, it was actually good in the morning as we could sleep till late. It is near the beach and 5 minute walk to the main street of Lamai where you can find a lot...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in the dorms. The location is the best in town-it's practically on the beach- it was a shock to us to find such cheap accommodation on the beach as it's normally resorts and fancy hotels so I was already happy! Not only is it close to the beach, but the main...

Hi Gwent, Thanks for your feedback. We're sorry you did not appreciate your stay at our budget beachside hotel.

We stayed here for just one night. The bed was comfy, I had a shelf, light and charging point. Privacy curtain is always a bonus and hot shower. 1 Air con unit & fans but still felt warm in 'the pod'. Good location right on beach front above a bar.
