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.
The security was o.K. They offer lockers at the reception Office, The stuff was not really accommodating to me nor was it really friendly. it was really not woth staying there for several nights, there is cheaper hostels in the same street where staff is friendlier and it´s also more quiet there. My room was directly under a subwoover, so there was not much to sleep at night. Also bathroom was quite dirty. At least they provided some towels to guests. It was not woth all the Money.
Very basic. We had a double bed in a room - wooden walls , no carpet and a sort of window. Fairly central to full moon beach but no really atmosphere , a small common area downstairs.

You should go there if you'd like to meet people. For that it's the greatest experience ever. You can't lock the door of your dorm, but there are lockets at the reception which is not open the whole night. The staff is really nice and helpful. The cleanliness of the dorm depends on the people which stay with you in the dorm. We had no problem. And the clean the toilets and showers every day. If I ever go to that island again I'll stay at Center Backpackers for sure. A bit cheaper would be nice.
What was good: location to Haad rin beach and full moon party, big room adequate for playing beer pong and various other drinking games, AC. What wasn't so good: the showers were kinda dank, the people who stayed in the dorm room were kinda filthy and left an epic mess to be cleaned by the staff, and the cost. I guess for full moon party its not too bad but relatively speaking you don't get what you pay for.
Does what it says on the tin... Right in the centre of Haad Rin, pretty basic facilities, but who cares? You're there to party and we were hardly ever there... When we were there, the A/C is amazing, the staff are friendly and helpful, the dorms are pretty clean. We had some great people in our dorm which made a great group for the Full Moon Party!
