We really enjoyed our time here! The atmosphere was perfect, relaxed combined with the perfect party vibe. The staff really sort their guests out well when it comes to transport to/from full moon and all the other parties. The rooms were comfortable and air con was great - but not all rooms have it. The hammocks on the beach were a really nice touch! We had such a good time at Echo and would definitely go back/recommend it to anyone going to Koh Phangan

We stayed in the hostel for going to the full moon party. We needed to stay at least 4 nights. But actually 2 night would be enough. The included breakfast was okay, but if you want a proper one, be sure you're there at 9.00. The beach in front of the hostel was bad and the water was dirty. The beds were okay and the room clean.

This hostel has a great vibe especially for the Full Moon Party. I loved the set up of the lounge area and outdoor seating area. It was a joy to take a nap on a hammock after a long night of partying. The staff is excellent and very helpful. I really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of this hostel and the music suited the mood of the time of day and time of week. I would whole-heartedly recommend this hostel to anybody staying on Koh Phangan. A great place to meet people and make new friends.

The staff here are lazy and dismissive if you need anything from them. Don't book any ferry tickets through them either. They screwed us when we booked our trip back to Bangkok (in order to make our flight home) with them and they made us pay in full but didnt confirm it with the booking agent until days later. We'd booked it early to be safe but by the time they let us know, all the boats out of town were full. We barely made it back in time because of their screw up.

Best hostel in Thaïland if you are young and if you like chill out with good music.

Enjoyed our stay at Echo Beach. We stayed 6 nights which was a bit too long but made the best of it. If you aren't into the party scene this probably isn't the place for you. They offered free breakfast leading up to the Full Moon and free transportation to the party the night of (about 10-15 mins by taxi). Aircon movie room was a godsend on those days where you can't shake the heat. Literally right on the beach, sometimes the water is dirty but still able to swim. We shared 10 bed dorm with fan
