The hostel is truly recommendable to those who want to party as it's close to sunrise beach. Might hence be a bit loud in the night. Thanks to the good hints from the staff I discovered many beautiful places on the island. Speaking of which. The staff is so great! Sopita and Dada made my stay unforgettable. They hook you up with anything that you need and were always helpful. So was the staff from the tattoo parlor, the Southland Clinic and the jewellery stall. Great atmosphere. Sad I had to go!


Sopita and Dada, who run the hostel, are both amazing. They went out of their way to get to know their guests. Sopita drove a few of us to her favorite noodle spot on the island the first day, which was amazing. The hostel itself is fairly cozy, and the atmosphere is very social. I made a few good friends very quickly just staying for 3 nights around the Full Moon Party. The party is pretty nuts and the hostel is VERY close to the beach, so be aware if you're a light sleeper.

Dada, the lady who runs the hostel is awesome. She is very friendly and helpful with anything that you need. The location is RIGHT off the beach, which is great when you want to party, but it is also so close that you can feel the music in your bed when you want to go to sleep. If I came back to Koh Phangan, I would find someone a bit further off the beach to avoid the constant stream of people walking by and the loud music blasting at all hours of the night.


Clean, organized, very good atmosphere, excellent staff, they are always very helpful and kind. Best location for the full moon party!! Definitely would stay there again. Highly reccomended!! Thanks Dara and Sopita! :)


Sopita was a great host and really went out of her way for her guests, always taking us somewhere or showing us something interesting. The hostel is right on the beach and perfect for the Full Moon Parties, the place is clean and they even have free coffee, tea and drinking water for guests. I would definitely recommend this hostel to any travler! Thank you for having us and I already miss Foobfib 🐶🐶🐶


Sophia was such a lovely lady as we're all th staff. They really went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our 3 nights there !


Location is the best thing - right next to the main beach, but still quiet and really secure inside. I just took a small amount of cash with me to full moon and walked 10seconds back to my room to grab more as and when I needed it. Good facilities, nice shower


Well I didn't sleep much since it was the full moon. But this hostel was the bomb.. it's so close to the Beach you can taste it! Sopita the owner is a complete legend painting everyone at our hostel with illumination paint. I see people walking past with envious eyes.. to top it off sopita drove us back to the harbour herself to ensure we didn't miss our boat!! She really puts her guests first.. we love you at phangan hostel! Shane


Amazing hostel. Staff was incredibly helpful throughout my entire visit. Sophia's awesome and really makes her guests feel welcome. She drove people to the parties, helped us buy anything we needed, and found an apartment for me. Overall a very positive experience.


Tan was amazing... The best host for a hostel you will ever come across. She took us everywhere we wanted/needed to go without hesitation. Got her tattoo artist to paint us for the half moon party which was also amazing! We would definitely stay here again! We loved it!! 😁
