Hostel is in a great location just 5 minute walk from the beach so perfect for the full moon party and with everything at your doorstep. Rooms just had a simple padlock on the door so we never felt our valuables we're safe and although the booking stated air con when we got there it was a small box room with wooden shutters and a fan so was ridiculously hot all the time.
This hostel is not that safe, although there are lockers for your valuables the doors to the rooms are open pretty much all the time. It's very close to the full moon if that's what your looking for but even on the other nights there is loud music playing outside until around 2am. It wasn't cleaned the four night I stayed there and even the bins in the toilet we're overflowing most of the time. I would recommend people to stay outside of haad rin for full moon and just come there for the party.
make sure you keep a hold of your paper they give you at the start, I lost mine and she wouldn't give us our deposit back, but never mentioned we needed to hold onto it. the bathroom is outside so in rain season showers and bathroom breaks in the night suck. the doors are broken down very easily so be careful with your stuff. but perfect location and cheap.
