Nothing to complain. Just a few bathroom door warped, leave a gap when you shower. Can easily cover with hang towel. Receptionist very friendly, bedroom clean, sleeping bed little bit hard, very very clean bathroom, lighting is good, no weird odour in the bedroom.

Stayed here a few days ago as part of a mixed group while in Ao Nang. It was really cheap, but the dorm is simple and clean, and the showers/toilet facilities are excellent -good music in the bar too. The ladies that work there were great fun and really helpful, thankyou, see you again soon!

The place was overpriced for what it was. As you can see in my pictures it was disgustingly dirty and we couldn't even bare to shower without flip flops on. The bedding had stains on and in every part of the room there was dirt and grime. Reported it to the staff but they didn't even care.

This place is the worst that I have ever seen. I couldn't stay one night as the room was so dirty. There was hair all over the floor. The toilet was really dirty and the toilet paper was a joke. Looked like somebody threw it in the water and put it back for us to use. Even after this, the...

The hotel rooms are clean & service is good. This hotel is situated 10-15 minutes walk from the beach. If you are on a budget trip, you can consider this hotel. Its value for money. There are some hotels near the beach which are expensive and not clean. I will suggest if you stay in Blue house you can enjoy...

We choose the Deluxe Room which had Fridge, TV, Aircon. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. We found the location good, while being a 10 minute walk from the beach, it's located near plenty of nice bars and resturaunts (cheaper than the beach area). Would also reccomend 'Number 1 Thai Food' 2 doors down who sell cheap and delicious...
