It's a cool space in the common area which is what all the photos are of. But the rooms are average and the wifi doesn't work in some of them. Cold showers too. Most people are here to get drunk so if that's not your vibe then don't stay here, there's music and loud drinkers till the early hours most...

The ambiance here is really cool, great for meeting like minded backpackers and socialising. The room was really clean and the air con was much needed. The bathrooms were fine but the fixings are a little loose on the wall and I got stuck inside once from a dodgy door. BUT they have the cutest puppies running around outside and...

Welcoming hostel. Arrived here with no booking and the guy who sorted our room was very sound. Food, atmosphere and happy hour all good. I must mention though, we were not impressed by a staff member's comment when we were 15 minutes late for check out asking if we "knew what time check out was." Felt like I was back...

A group of 7 of us stayed here in January over the full moon period. We found the accommodation excellent and I will defiantly recommend it to anyone visiting Koh Phangan. The staff were very friendly (could brush up on the bar skills 😏 lol) and welcoming. It was my friend Megan's birthday whilst we were there and they were...

This place had great reviews so was looking forward to it as a I am traveling solo. The staff weren't friendly at all. Had an over priced BBQ which was terrible. No one finished their plates. The actual menu of food was good. I stayed over the road in a 3 bed door and I expected to be in a...

Stayed here over New Years, 5 nights. The staff are very welcoming and the place is nice, right on the beach with a good atmosphere. The actual room is in a different building across the road. It is VERY minimal, bed, 2 pillows, 2 small micro fleece blankets and 2 small bedside tables. No towels. There are 3 shared showers/toilets....

Incredible ambience if what you are looking for is partying and being with people 24/7 but not the ideal place if you prefer a good rest. I was there during the Full Moon week and every night the bar of the hostel was full of people and travellers. (Tip: Individual rooms are way much better than dorms.)

Nice place to hang out with friends. They offer pre parties and take you to the ones for free. Not really clean. So pay attention if that bothers you. Also offer free breakfast on the full moon party days. Other places arrange activities on pre and after full moon party. That would be a nice plus for such a sociable...

I recently stayed here and was really impressed at first. Great common area, bar and right on the beach. Can't say enough about that. I was a little drained after few busy days and a couple nights of loud people in a previous hostel so I decided to get a private room. Definitely not worth it. First they are way...
