The owners have closed up shop in Kata Beach. I don't believe you will be able to book even if you try but thought I would put this out there FYI. I gave it five stars because the owner was super cool and brought me to another nice hostel when I arrived on his doorstep!

“The downstairs room was very enjoyable with the small patio area (table & chairs). RNR felt safe and comfortable. I didn't feel I needed to lock anything up or that I was in danger in any way. I don't think I even had the door to the room locked once... but you can.”

“Give the checkin girl a tip if you can swing it! She will go way out of her way to find you the best available room and have it made up on the spot to accommodate! Think Vegas style! And do you believe it!! One of the dorms has fantastic adjustable AC. Book in advance to catch a bed!”
