Touch of friendship, nice staffs and very clean. The hostel is close to the beach about 5 minutes and delicious local food near by. You can rent a motorbike here for different scenes of your trip. But which one I liked most is so quiet and private.

Located just off chaweng main beach road, this guesthouse has just remodelled I heard and their owners have changed. The guesthouse was hard to find at first but soon it was the only guest house I can see! In front of the guesthouse, there are bikes for rent, which the staffs don't recommend as there are many accidents on this... More

The hostel is small and only has a couple of rooms, so it was never too full or too crowded. Though the beds were kind of hard , overall the hostel is clean and located very well in Chaweng Beach! We recommend stay here for travelers on a low budget. Staff is hospitable and helpfull, and they were extremely helpful... More

So happy with my stay at DD guest house. I've been to Samui twice, it's a place that can turn ugly pretty quickly, and the DD guest house staff look out for you. They do really cheap transport to the full moon party so you don't have to stay on Koh Pha Ngan. Rooms are clean with great air-con. Cafe... More

DD Guesthouse & Backpacker has been a great start to my trip. The hostess is really nice and fun. The whole staff will help you out with everything you need, where to go, where to eat, how to get the best prices.

Cheapest guest house in ko Samui, we paid 200 bath/night, and you definitely get more than what you pay for! Staff was very helpful and friendly and the room was always clean, and so was the bathroom. The wifi worked everywhere in the building and was fast. I have nothing to complain about except the LOCATION maybe. The guest house... More

비싼 리조트들이 즐비한 차웽해변에서 여행자들이 머물기 좋은 숙소입니다. 잠시만 걸어나가면 아름다운 해변이 나오는 위치에 있습니다. 메인로드 반대편으로 가면 저렴만 식사를 할 수 있다는 것도 넉넉치 않은 여행자들에게 큰 매력일 겁니다. 12시쯤 1층에 내려와 보세요. 지나가는 포장마차를 붙잡아 쌀국수로 간단히 점심을 즐길수도 있습니다. 궁굼한점은 스텝들에게 물어보세요. 친절히 대답해 줄겁니다.

The hostel was very clean, rooms were spacious with AC and a balcony. Wifi works very well and plugs are handy everywhere. There is a kettle to boil water and a refrigerator available in the kitchen. The biggest problem is that you need your own padlock to lock your locker, but experienced travelers should have one anyway. The hostel is... More

This is the cheapest hostel in Samui with beds for only 200 bhat a night. But despite the price, it is really clean, with fast wifi, friendly and welcoming staff, coffee shop, access to kitchen facilities and lockers. I would 100% stay here again, if it's not already booked!

Very clean and tidy, with friendly staff, in a good location. it's only a short walk to the beach and there is a selection of good restaurants nearby, as well as some good budget places to eat. For a cheap place to stay you can't do better.

Thank Ed S
