    Very friendly owner, staff, clean, comfortable bed, perfect location, directly in the center, at the night Market, could either ride to the islands ond the North East or North West, good distance

    Room didn't have sunlight, as the owner had to isolate the windows against noise of the Irish pub next door,but we didn't spend time there during the day, so wasn't tooo bad

    I stayed in the single room for a week and even if next time I would probably get the double for some extra space, it really was great value for the price paid. I have rarely seen such a clean hostel/ hotel and overall it felt clean and safe. Daily roomkeeping and fresh towels and water each day, safe and fridge in the room which is luxury for the price paid! Super central location in Thong Sala - close to beach, shops, pier, a lot of markets and the daily aerobic lesson that takes place at the pier each night

    Can’t say much about the staff because I had almost no interaction, which is a pity because it would have made everything more familiar. The cleaning ladies I met were incredibly nice though. The only minor things I found a bit disturbing were the heavy, stagnating smell of the house at times and the fact that it’s literally in the back of a restaurant so there was never light in the room and it did feel a bit claustrophobic.

    Our stay here at Buakao Inn was pitch perfect. The food from the restaurant was incredible it offers high class western food. We particularly enjoyed the burgers and the extensive range of delicious breakfast options. Mike, the manager is one of the nicest guys you’ll meet, very kind and attentive. And all the staff treated us well. The bedroom was spotless and gets a daily clean. The location is great, it’s a 5 minute walk from the ferry port and you are right in the centre of everything. It’s just such good value for money, you can’t quite believe what your getting.

    The room was clean and comfortable and location excellent

    Check in is at the restaurant below the rooms but as I arrived on a wednesday when the restaurant is closed I had to find the night bell. I couldn’t find it as is on the side of the building out of sight. I didn’t realise this is also where the door to the rooms are as there is no sign for the rooms. Another guest luckily came home while I was waiting for a reply from the hotel via the booking site but I still had to ring repeatedly before someone came to check me in so beware if you arrive on a wednesday

    Perfect location, less than 5 min walk from the pier. The food market is literally across the road as well every day from 4pm. The owner is a really nice guy and I got the same vibe from the staff. Really good base to explore all parts of the island from. Ridiculously fast broadband, 150/150MB when I checked.

    Nothing. 100% will stay here when we return to Koh Phangan.
