The location is absolutely fantastic if you are going to the full moon party. It is a 5 minute walk from the beach, but far enough away to not hear the music on the beach all night! One negative is music is always playing in the common room, and our room was right beside it. You woke up to music, and fall asleep to music, it gets annoying. Staff were friendly. Great party hostel, not a relaxing hostel. Very Small room for 4 people.


Is very important to understand you are in a beach town in Thailand. Power and water might fail in the whole Island. Location is great. Party street. Rooms were clean, staff cares A LOT of what concerned you. There were problems and they solved them. Good bathroom, lockers are at the reception (they could be in the rooms). Good beds. Good air-con (2 actually). 500m away from full moon party beach and 200m close to the pier. Of course is not an hotel, but for FMP was totally fine. Would come back

See you later :)


I had a bad stay because in the 22 people dorm I had the worst dorm mates ever who wouldn't let me sleep. The hostel is well located but it is in a party street so sleeping between 7 pm and 3 am is not an option. During the full moon dates bathrooms were disgusting at night because they normally run out of water. When most people left the stay was much more pleasant. The guy at the reception is really nice he really helped me when my taxi didn't pick me up to take me to the pier.


Decent place for the full moon experience, kind of dirty and smelly the day after full moon


Good place to meet people!! We stayed there for the full moon party and it was absolutely fine. It was noisy at night and the toilets were blocked of all the sick and there was no water in the bathrooms when you come late at night but I think every hostel runs out of water by the amount of people staying on the island at the full moon party! Was great anyway :D!!


Friendliest staff ever!

The hostel is great for those going to full moon, right near the beach in haad rin. But they never cleaned the rooms the time I was there, even after a couple of days after full moon when only a handfull of people were there. The atmosphere and location are great, it's just the rooms that were gross after tons of people partied and nothing was cleaned even 4 days later.


Lovey staff, the man who always sat at reception was very nice and helpful! Great location for full moon party, 5 minute walk to the beach But our toilet broke and wasn't fixed, no wifi in your room

Hi, Thanks for your review :) You can use wifi at Liqueur Store near your room and maybe sometime low signal and too many people using. About toilet I will check and fix it asap. Thank you again for come to stay with us :) Eddy Jaya Hostel


Loved staying here for full moon period. The bar was really fun to predrink. The meals at the bar are overpriced and slow though. Full of like minded people. Have very secure lockers. Eddy was great host! Cheers.


Very nice and helpful staff, very close to Sunrise Beach and the Fullmoon Party, overall I had a good time there
