    This hostel was perfect! The owners, Abi and Charlie were so helpful and lovely people! The breakfast was more than I was expecting, and there was plenty of options to choose from. The rooms were nice, and the bathrooms were very well kept. Everyone was willing to help if you needed it! We are already planning on staying there again when we travel to Cardiff. It was very reasonably priced as well for everything that we had access to! Can't wait to go back!

    After registering for classes, we had about 4 days free before classes started, so Abby and I decided to make the most of it and travel to Cardiff! We spent a wonderful and busy couple days there! We took the train to Cardiff, which was an easy 4 hour trip. After checking into our hostel, which is a cute little place (Check out the picture!) we …

    ... we had done that day) we went into the main part of Koh Samui. It was a lot more loud, with loads of bars and restaurants. We had been advised To go a bar called Green Mango, and it was great! We weren't drunk, but we partied like we were in the 80's and dancing like nobody was watching. We didn't have a late night but while it lasted it was a scream. The next morning we had the last of our delicious breakfast and had to leave to go to Koh ...

    ... the room we were able to go into the swimming pool. After receiving some worrying information about the Panagopoulos family we took it easy that evening. It turned out to be a very special evening with all of us together. We decided to let 8 large lanterns off on the beach for Sophie's mum. After struggling to light them, dogs running laps around our ankles and burning one lantern we let 7 off and they were beautiful. The wind was ...

After an interesting first attempt of packing our bags to move on to our next destination we were ready to leave. We walked onto Koh San Road and were unsurprisingly bombarded with Thai men trying to take us to the airport. Half of us went in one taxi and the other half ...
