The rooms were big enough - I stayed in a 14 bed - and it had plenty of space for bags. Hostel was very basic. Barely cleaned in the 5 day minimum stay over full moon so shower and room very sandy. Close to main beach without being right in centre of noise. However if I were to go again I would stay on the beach, much better atmosphere, music at hostels and a pool to chill.

I think comparitively LHS was good value for what we had, we were a 3 and got a triple room.it certainly wasn't very clean but the girl behind the reception was very helpful.

Complaining about the cost of accomadation goes to show that you have no real understanding of how a business runs !!! supply and demand mate . when demand is HIGH the price goes up , this is standard business anywhere in the world .., marking the hostel down across the board is because we CAN put up the prices is childish . you say that comparitively we are good value ,yet you score us a 2 . your statement and scores seem to be contradictory.you seem to be reviewing a dorm,Liz's your friend eh

Stayed here over full moon weekend and we were really well looked after by Jon and his reception staff. Very nice people. There was a little mix up with the booking and we ended up being upgraded from a dorm to a private room at no extra charge. Great breakfasts at the lazy house restaurants. Hostel is really close to everything and we had a great stay

I paid way too much for this place. Minimum 4 nights because of the full moon and inflated prices to get no water during the day (water got shut off every day I was there) and no working wifi anywhere. The rooms were never cleaned. The staff was friendly however, and it was a great place for meeting people. It's very close to full moon beach, which is great being able to walk home.

Thanks Liz for this hatchet job of a review , we dont switch the water off ! the government ration the water as there has been a drought , the island does not have 1st world services yet !!! it is in the gulf of Thailand . as for your room not being cleaned ,try keeping your clothes off the floor so the staff can clean . I checked your dorm its was a bombsite of clothes and belongings everywhere , Your mess not ours . We do not clean up after you we are not Mum your Dad !!!

Staff are unbelievable and friendly and helpful couldn't ask for better. Near enough to the beach without being on it. Noise but you won't be doing any sleeping during full moon week anyway

Nice hostel with friendly staff. However there where no People. It was so boring

There were no people because we had some cancellations due to the Military COUP and that you were travelling during the hight of the LOW SEASON . Low season is now over as is the curfew which put alot of people off travelling to KPG because its a party island and a party island that had to close at midnight is no fun ... GLADLY THE CURFEW IS OVER AND THE PARTIES ARE BACK ON !!!!

This hostel is in an excellent location. Walking distance to everything. The staff are very friendly. We had some issues with security as the lockers provided were small and light enough to just be picked up and carried off and the door to the room would not close properly. The morning after the full moon party the water had been turned off and there was no staff to be found. The water didn't come back on until 3pm. Was a fun place to stay, however, with lots of fun people.

Nice clean rooms and friendly, helpful staff. Would recommend staying especially for the full moon as close to everything.

Paul was an amazing host! He took a lot of interest in our travels and made sure our time at Shenanigans was fun and the most it could be. He even hooked us up with an upgraded room...for free!! Paul went so far above and beyond he even helped us plan the rest of our time in Thailand since he's lived there for some time and knew of some great local spots. I can confidently say this was THE best hostel experience we had on our entire trip!

Hostel is ok if you are there for just the full moon party but would not stay there again.

The moody mancunian has been replaced with a far more happy bubbly person. He will not be working here anymore.

One of the best hostels I stayed at during the 3 months I spent in SE Asia. I only planned on being on the island for 3 nights but wound up at this hostel for the better part of two weeks. The staff is top class. Paul is a legend. Sit down and have a conversation with this man. Ko Phagnan has everything you could want in an island, not too big and not too small. Easy to find a party but just as easy to find a quiet sanctuary to "wind down." Top notch hostel and staff. I'll be going back someday.
