It's not that loud.
This stove is truely amazing, it boils water incredibly fast and is very light. Everybody seems to complain about how loud it is but I really dont see that as a problem. Sure, it may be louder than your average stove but it is really not that noticeable, nor is it difficult to talk over, as other reviews have suggested. I made pasta on it in no time and was pleasantly surprised with its very good fuel consumption.
