We were pleasantly surprised with this hostel the rooms were better than the photos showed. The atmosphere there is very lively and very social and the staff are extremely helpful. Perfect place to go around the full moon period. 10 minute taxi ride to the pier and to Hadd Rin beach. Although if you wander down from the hostel the beaches there are just as nice.

Stay during full moon and it didn't disappoint, really cool place to stay with lots of perks including free breakfast each morning, free taxi to the full moon, events each night and day leading up too full moon etc. The hostel isn't near the main tourist area so it's a bit out the way but it didn't really matter and on a day you can just get a scooter and explore. Really nice staff, good beach, bad wifi but who cares overall really good stay with really good people

Really great hostel if you like staying right on the beach, get cold drinks and good local food from the bar and party. Theres also a pool table and a drinking jenga. Big chill out area and you meet cool people there. Lots of dogs and puppies aswell. Bedsheets and bathrooms could have been cleaner and warm water at the showers would have been cool. Overall, i liked my week there.

amazing food! very authentic thai, quite expensive but to be expected on the islands (around 100 baht for everything). played great house music and the bar staff are hilarious and good fun. bar is literally on the beach!! its about a 10 minute taxi to haad rin where the main parties are (100baht/person)dorm was quiet at night as i was quite far back. only complaint is the staff arent very helpful, and the atmosphere is quite hard to break into as a solo traveller as everyone is in little groups

This hostel could be amazing, it's atmosphere in the common area is great and there's so many puppies! We stayed in a private room in high season which we understand is more costly, however when we arrived it wasn't clean and had no sheets even though it was 5pm? All we were given was a sheet that was barely big enough to cover one person. The staff were not very great in the bar area. Most had no idea how to make drinks, even asking us to read them the menu.I wouldn't stay again, or recommend.

Great hostel with young people looking to have a good time on Phangan. Would definitely recommend and stay here again. Bar and outside beach area to hang out on, plus beach volleyball court!

Wouldn't have wanted to change anything about the stay, extremely helpful and friendly staff! Very social hostel with boat trips organised, and also able to sort out bike rental and ferry trips at the hostel. Always something to do with great atmosphere, but beds are far enough away that you can also get an early night if needed. Will definitely be returning!

Don't even think twice arriving in Koh Phangan and book a room at this place. Amazing people, friendly atmosphere, 4 cute puppies and 2 less friendly dogs, located right at the beach. They organise trips, barbeques, breakfast for 100baht which I would skip-basically a toast and banana, no variety there but there is a free coffee, tea and water which is a nice touch. Bike rental is 200baht-cheaper than renting on your own. No toilet paper for a long time and only 2 showers with hot water

Amazing value for what you get. Although the dorms have many beds, it was surprisingly quiet! Bathrooms were fine but there was only one sink so it got busy at times. Great breakfast buffet for a decent price. Very nice common area and staff. Would definitely stay here again.
