Wow ,so you mark us down across the board because you had 2 more people in a dorm than you booked . I have to take issue with your score on Atmosphere ! there was a Great crowd of people in the hostel and the atmosphere was amazing ,My bar takings were well up on many other months , Thats a sure sign the atmosphere was Buzzing .and as for your score on security LOL there was no problems at all with security ,we have staff on site 24h a day and we have CCTV throughout the complex .


Good location for full moon party and beach but far from other things. Met really nice people and staff were great


Spent two months in Thailand and Shenanigans was the best Hostel I stayed in. If you are looking for a fun place to meet people and party this is the place. Or you can just chill at night and watch a movie on their big screen. The staff was great! Steve goes out of his way to make sure you have a great stay and will even drive around town on his bike if you need anything. The place is clean, the food is excellent! Many people only planned to stay a few days and end up staying a week or two.

Great location, nice staff. Free water, tea and coffee. Nice garden area! Cleanliness let the hostel down really... clean in general however our room wasnt cleaned in the four nights we were there, bins overflowing, and the bathroom had a blocked sink for two days! Rooms also only had 3 lockers for 6 beds.


Fantastic hostel! Absolutely enjoyed my stay here. I ended up staying an additional couple of nights simply because I really enjoyed my time here. The staff welcomes it's guests into the hostel as if they were family. The atmosphere is relaxing and laid back. Free water & coffee plus a healthy choice of delicious items on their menu made life easier than it already was on this island. Nyi Nyi is an absolute champ! Everyone at the hostel fell in love with his charming personality.


Good for full moon cause close enough to the beach but not too close! Could of had better lockers in rooms - bring your own padlock. Staff very helpful!

Wow ,Disappointed in your score , you seemed to be having a great time while you were here .. we are 3 minutes from 2 beautiful beaches and you score us a 3 , and a 3 for security when we have on site staff at night time and cctv ! Staff very helpful but a score of 4 only ??I think you should book only into HOTELS from now on ...WE dont supply Padlock so you have confidence that the lock you use is your lock and only you have keys for it ...
