We spent New Years at the rich resort and swing bar and had a blast. The hotel was decently clean and in a great location on Lamai beach. They put on a fantastic fire show and New Years celebration. The hotel is a little odd now but they fixed any problems we had right way. (2 doors fell of their...

We have just returned from this hotel, we stayed last week. We were absolutely aghast at the amount of asbestos used in the construction all over the hotel, from balustrades on the staircase, to ceilings, walls, and the balcony shelf in the Swing Bar. This must surely constitute a serious health hazard. It was even being used in reparations to...

Stayed in june 2015. Hotel is cheap, clean, has a fridge/TV and a fan, which is more than enough for me. Close to the beach/swing bar which is good. Super helpful With booking ferries etc, definately recommend if youre a couple of days in Lamai.

Great hotel to stay at. Our room was spacious and the bathroom was clean! Our hallway smelled a little musty but it didn’t penetrate the room. It is right across from Swing Bar (incredible at all hours of the day/night) and the beach! Only complaint we have is the hotel reception staff is not helpful or friendly. They look like...

However, it was pretty good value for money and the bar area with the pool tables was nice. the staff were also so so helpful and nice. I...

Overall we had a great time here. My girlfriend left her phone in the taxi and the hostel staff managed to help get it back thanks to a very nice cab driver. Koh samui itself was quite sleazy with the highlight being the kickboxing which was just around the corner from the hotel. Rooms were nice although did not have...

Sincerely I can not understand the bad reviews about this hotel! One of the cheapest price on the island and in my opinion the best with quality / price ratio.

The staff is ok, but that's the best I can say about this place. Seriously the rooms are a joke. They are dirty and loud. You get to hear the music of the swing bar until it closes. The bathroom was a joke. The sink didn't work and the water in the shower would rise almost until it flushes the...

Dear Jellylow, Sorry to hear that you do not appreciate your stay in our establishment. I would like to remind that we are a "budget hotel / backpacker oriented" and our occupancy rate above the year was 85%, which means that our concept pleases and the many positive feedback are proof (excuse us to surprise you, but all the positive...

Firstly they lied about the ac facilities, each room does not have it..it's more like a hostel..pool n beach not with the hotel, it's across the road at a bar..the only good thing about it was the lady at the reception. Will definitely not Come back
