          Amazing, clean, cold aircon, kind of close to samui airport and the main part of town, can rent scooter from hostel normal samui price, taxis charge way more, no taxi meter on samui! Very friendly korean guy when i checked in. He spoke good english and gave me lots of info and booked me a ferry for 300thb to go to ko phangyang for the next day. Definitely stay again, everything seems new and clean and the wifi was fast when i was there. 20baht towel hire but for 130thb a night or whatever its totally worth it. 500thb for key deposit.

          I was in the 1st floor (one flight up) room whcih I think may have been the only one used, the hostel was fairly empty and small, there are some seats downstairs but there is no breakfast or anything and it is a bit far from the main drag. Place is clean, toilet was ok, there are shops and things around and I had quite a good time on the island.

          Terrible”

          cheap, cheap, cheap

          Not good at all. I booked and paid for a 6 bed room. When I got there I was told that room is full, only 8 bed room is available, which is fine by me. The problem was they told me the price is the same, which was a lie. Actually, I didn't intend to ask money back since it's not much. But to tell me the price is the same when apparently not is totally not on. I said I know the price is not the same, but I am OK with a 8 bed room. Also, their staff don't speak English well. A lot of misunderstandings. You can't rely on them for any advice, help or whatever.

          Fast internet connection, lovely staff and good location

          I got to Samui late at night, but I was still welcomed by the lovely staff of DD who showed me my room and also introduced me to other fellow travelers who were also staying there. My stay was so good that I went back to DD after spending some time in Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.

          鍵のデポジットの500バーツを返してください。 朝早くcheckoutしたため、店員が不在で鍵のデポジットの置き場所を確認しましたが、置いてなかったです。その対応後に評価を変えます。
