This is probably cooler at night or on the weekend, but I enjoyed my quick stop. I came by after a conference because of a recommendation of a friend. It is a small dive, cool vibe, in china town. I was one of 3-4 people at about 3 pm. Other guests were friendly. I got my Buddha beer which was... More

Big comfortable beds and very helpful staff. However out of town, in the middle of nowhere with no street lights so quite intimidating. Room wasn't that clean and the shower smelt. The lockers didn't feel very secure. Wifi was great and in the day was an easy walk to a nice beach.

We arrived at Buddha on the first night of our holiday in Thailand. I was a bit dubious about paying £6 for a night, thinking that we'd be staying in an absolute dive. How wrong I was. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at ease by both the lady on front desk and the male owner.... More

We only stayed here for one night on the way to koh phangan and didn't explore the island so i can't say much about the location but the hostel itself was really nice. Very clean and there were good facilities with a big communal area with a t.v and music and a large kitchen area. The staff here were very... More

A great hostel/hotel close to the beach, close to the pier and close the airport. The staff are all super helpful and the owner himself gave me a lift to the airport for cheaper than the local taxi's. I'd highly recommend and there's a great TV room where you can chill out and watch movies! One of the few hostel/hotels... More

The Buddha Lounge is a perfect hotel/hostel. It is good for couples, but also for backpackers. I stayed in one of the mixed dorms which were nice and clean. Breakfast is included as well! The owner is very friendly and helpful. I met a lot of great people there and ended up travelling with a few of them. It is... More

“When you get the main road, turn right and head towards the big budda. A must see. If you turn left, take a tuk tuk and head down the road for about 5 minutes where you will find a night market. That is a great place to explore and get some great food at a cheap price.”
