When we arrived in Chumphon, we weren't sure we were going to Koh Tao, or even how to get there. It seems that there were several conflicting things written on the internet. We managed to get everything taken care of here. The ferry and the transport. There is also plenty of information about getting to Bangkok or Chang Mai, if...

Easily my favourite and probably one of the best hostels in Thailand! The dorm and double room are both very comfortable and the whole hostel is super clean throughout! The breakfast is very generous and if all that wasnt enough... Sood 'the owner' is awesome! Super helpful, a really smart guy with great knowledge of both the area and thailand...

Chumpon is a funny little town, not very many tourists but excellent food markets. Salsa hostel is a winner. Very clean and well maintained rooms, free breakfast and fast wifi. The owner was incredibly helpful and changed my onward travel for me to make it easier and more effective in terms of time. He did this without me even asking....

We're a family of five passing through and needed a place for 9 or so hours so decided to try the European hotel but they wouldn't honor their TripAdvisor price so we ended up here. Wow, we couldn't be happier. We're used to spending a $100 a night on hotels so our expectations were low- we're we wrong!! This place...

I have absolutely not a single bad word to say about this hostel. It was clean, and welcoming. Breakfast was great and the staff very nice, special thanks to the owner who is amazingly kind and helpful person. And to the lady who did my laundry for pleating all my clothes so that I didn't even dare to use them...

Not many hostel are available in the area and people just stay there for a night before catching the first ferries. The owner is rude. He doesn't care about his guests. Slimy comments. Retained part of the key deposit because the ring of the key holder was broken (already x months old). Very disappointed. It is not a way to...

Dear Max, Thanks for your stay and your review. Please accept my sincere apologise for being pragmatic. I do care and listen to all the guests. However, the guests are the guests. They are not always right, if they have done something wrong. Le client n'a pas toujours raison. You broke the key holder, therefore I charged you 50Bht for...

Thanks Chris and thanks to the rain that brought us to meet each other. However it was so unfortunate that it rained heavily and ceaselessly during your stay, but you know what just a day after your departure it stopped!!! Chumphon still got things to be explored and I hope you come back and visit Chumphon again. Cheers, Sood
