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 ...


Love it here!have added 4extra days:) havnt felt too well so its great as can watch any movie you want in the common room,free tea,coffee and water. Staff are so helpful and no curfew, rooms always cleaned, free wifi and computer, amazing value for money!great atmosphere, so easy to he lazy here haha no complaints at all about this hostel i loved it!theres always a member of staff to help put films on and the food is nice.

It's the most comfortable hostel to stay in Kho Phangan.


Great place to stay... certainly will be visiting again

I purposedly stayed during that time of the month when nothing really happens. The location is really good, as you can pretty much walk anywhere (Haad Rin is not that big) but still be away from the noise. Bed was comfortable, shower was hot and the internet worked just fine. The TVs showing movies all the time in the main lobby were also cool. Free water was amazing, thanks! I had a good time staying there. My advice? Find Leela Beach, it's THE place to be. Only a 15min walk from the hostel.


Good spot to stay for full moon since it's close to sunrise beach. Party hostel for sure, don't stay here if you'd like to sleep, at least during full moon! Dorm had lockers, but no plug for the upper bunks which was a bit of a hassle. Great common area to hang out, party and meet people.


Not a bad place. Our double room was clean. I found it pretty expensive, but unfortunately all of Haad Rin is like this around full moon time. There are more central places to stay in Haad Rin but this was still pretty good - around a 5 minute walk to both beaches, and a 2 minute walk to streets full of shops and eateries. The accommodation included meal vouchers at a great eatery around the corner, which is full of lounges and TV projector screens. Overall, recommended.


It seems that one of the doors to the large dorm room didn't lock, so I didn't feel completely safe with my belongings in there. Nonetheless, there were still lockers where k could keep my valuables. During most of the day, there are staff circulating/cleaning so that helps with security. People were nice in the hostel. AC was good. Wifi was good. Far enough from full moon party to get sleep, but close enough to walk in under 10 minutes

Its seems that you dont know how to operate a dead bolt type of lock because that is exactly the type of lock which is on your dorm door !!!! You have to TURN the handle on the inside of the door once you are inside the room , its quite easy to operate . and we are close enought to walk to the both of haad rins beautiful beaches in less than 3 minutes .... so basically you have marked the hostel down on security because you did not look at the lock properly .


Beth was amazing, done out face painting in her own time, would stay there again


Staff is fun, friendly and helpful. Good place overall, would recommend!
