Best Hostels in Koh Samui for Solo Travellers, Groups, or Party-goers
Koh Samui is an island in Thailand that is part of the Chumphon Archipelago in the Gulf of Thailand. It's an island that has a lot of natural beauty and very nice beaches. Tourism is a major industry here and the high number of tourists is starting to have a detrimental effect on the natural beauty of the area. Still, this is a top travel destination for backpackers to Southeast Asia.
There is no shortage of places to stay in Koh Samui. You should consider what you want to do on the island when choosing where to stay. If you're looking for a party, Chaweng and Lamai have the most active night life. If you want a more mellow beach experience, Mae Nam and the South Coast are better options. Bophut has a little of both and Choeng Mon offers a more quiet retreat.
