We got a room full of mould on walls. That was dissapointing. The rest is ok, close to the center, clean shared bathroom; not enought toilet paper though - we got one roll for the whole floor which is 3 or 4 rooms on the first day, on the second - none.

While the stay was decent and facilities clean. It somehow lacks a vibe. It's just and purely a room you are looking at. Limited hours of reception, beyond which you are by yourself. The AC shared toilet room lacks certain things like hooks to dry clothes or even a dustbin. What really bothered me was the mattress. It is hard...

And thankfully after 11pm there was no noise, our room overlooked the side of the hotel I think so we couldnt hear...

Stayed here for a night in a fan room before heading off to Koh Samui for 250 THB (£5). The rooms are basic but clean, spacious and managed to have a decent night sleep here in a comfortable bed. The shared bathroom is clean, has hot showers and very much fit for purpose. I didn't expect anything fabulous from this...

Nothing too fancy but exactly what you need for the price, clean bedding and good air con - we arrived late and the reception left a key out for us and replied efficiently to emails prior to booking, would definitely return again.

A very nice hotel for budget backpackers. The front staff were helpful and very kind. The rooms where basic but very clean as were the bathrooms (which were shared)! Very close to a lovely little street food place and near the lovely markets that fill up at night!
