    Claudio was super nice and helpful (eg helped us book a ferry much cheaper) and everything was really clean. It's close to the long beach and you got some shops and cute restaurants around if you want do washing, rent sth or need food. We enjoyed our stay a lot, thank you :) Would be great if you could fill up the water yourself but it also worked fine by having it filled up by the family 😊 overall definitely recommend it

    It's probably the cheapest hostel that you can find on the island, but it's also very nice. The beds are so comfortable! There are some restaurants near to the hostel and you can walk to Long Beach in 10-15 min. I would come back!

    The zoo is a the perect place to stay for backpackers. The rooms are clean and air condition is running throughout the nights. The shower is basic but clean. The owner is really nice and helpful. You might end up just chilling with him and other guests, watching netflix after a day of visiting the island. The hostel is located right next to what I think of as the best restaurant in phra ae (may’s kitchen). Beach and bars are also within walking distance. In sum I really enjoyed my stay.

    The owner was really friendly and helpful. It is a basic hostel. Valuable for the money you pay is good! Bathrooms are downstairs, dorms upstairs. We understand that some rules are needed in a hostel, but there were rules all over the place. Didn't feel like our 'backpacker home'.

    We did not get a warm welcome at all. Maybe he was just having a bad day but the other ones in the hostel didn’t experience him as a nice guy either. The a/c was down during daytime which means there was no cool place to stay during the heat, just the supermarket down the road. Everywhere in the house were rules written on paper with commands which just made everyone feel uncomfortable. I guess the owner must have made some bad experiences in the past. We left soon bc we really did not feel com
