Stayed here over full moon so the poor cleanliness was expected (24 young people cramped in a dorm room, going out and getting drunk every night is bound to get messy). Beds were comfortable and the hostel is in a great location close to all the full moon party action. It's also quite an easy place to meet people :) I enjoyed my stay but wouldn't want to stay longer than the party, as it isn't till after people leave that you realise the mess they left behind!
The hostel is in a really good location about three minute walk to the beach. The dorm was quite packed and didn't get cleaned the whole time we were there. They didn't even stock up the toilet rolls, and the water supply kept getting turned of. Even though it was the full moon party they still could of gave it a sweep and the bathrooms a clean. The staff are pleasant enough they tried really hard to get everyone in the mood with drinking games and involving everyone, easy to meet people to!
Really fun party hostel! Super close to Full Moon beach. Not as expensive as other hostels around Full Moon time. Not the most clean but ok if you are used to hostels. Staff was helpful and friendly!
Perfect location, close to full moon beach just a 2min walk aswell to the 7-eleven. close to bars and restaurants.. Staff is nice and food is good in the restaurant. They do free painting for full moon aswell.. Just my room didnt get cleaned the 5 days I was there (or maybe once when they emptied the bin) so imagine lots of sand and empty bottles of water everywhere. Dorms were really small, 4 beds put into a tiny little space so not lots of space for your bags or to walk around coz you cant.
Terrible staff. Very unfriendly and unhelpful. Paid 200baht deposit for towels, a lot of people's went missing mysteriously and no deposit back. In a good location for full moon but we were forced to stay for 5 nights which was way too much and way too expensive. Cockroaches everywhere, filthy showers and toilets. Good wifi but only at reception not the rooms. Very uncomfortable beds but good air com. There are much better options in Hadrin for much cheaper prices if you book ahead.

Don't expect the Ritz. You're going to party and it's the best place to do it. Absolute perfect location, great HQ. I really enjoyed my time here.
We stayed here over full moon. For the required 5 nights. At the start dorm was clean and comfortable but the dorm does not get cleaned during this time only the communal shower. And after 5 nights of drunken antics the dorm is a state. Is right near the full moon beach and is what I would describe as a party hostel - make sure you are part of the party as a good nights sleep won't happen otherwise. Has lockers in the reception / restaraunt area (recommended).
Fantastic place to stay for the full moon, and the atmosphere was perfect for what we wanted. awesome time had and we'll recommend it to any other travellers passing through.
