Ok the place is well located, but it is the only advantage. The owners and staff are high 24/7, it's fun but not really professional. The bathrooms are awful and really dirty, most of the time no hot water. They can play very loud music until 7 o'clock.... It's not cheap (one of the most expensive place for my whole stay in thailand!

Thanks for your feedback.The "high" staff have been replaced when the issue was discovered. It's important to note that you stayed here on New Years Eve, which directly affects all of your comments. During the biggest event of the year (40,000+ people) bathrooms get dirty quickly, hot water run out, music and parties go late, and prices are up to 10 times higher. Our bathrooms are cleaned daily, bar quiets when guests go to bed, and prices are competitive in our area. :)


I was here over new year. The hostel has a great atmosphere and the staff were brilliant. It is minutes from beach and the full moon party and I would absolutely recommend a stay if you want to party on the island.


Really nice staff :) they try everything to make ur stay as comfortable as possible. The lounge downstairs is perfect for meeting people or get to know new people. I can definitelly recommend this hostel for backpackers.

Thanks for the review! After some trouble arriving, we were glad you stayed with us here and in Koh Samui! Had a great time! Keep in touch and enjoy your travels! :)


Its a party Hostel for Full Moon Party, you'll meet many people during your stay there. For this purpose I really can recommend it, but not for longer stays (18 bed dorm room). You got a free lightstick and a "survival advisor" for the Full Moon party, its quite clean and in the night and morning its quiet. A/C works, boiler in the shower was broken.

The hot water from the shower is running. You just turn the knob and adjust the temperature.


This was definitely an experience. 10 bunks lined up beside eachother with 2 bathrooms, which meant it got pretty cramped. Met loads of people, but during the fool moon party there's a great atmosphere everywhere. 24hr security is just a camera which is manned by anyone. Great experience in all though.

We have 3 showers / WC and three cameras in the hostel. At night there is a staff that is present and the entrance to the building is monitored by a security guard on camera.


Great valued hostel to spend the full moon party. Original decoration. Great air con, and plugs in each bed make a difference. The owner was very friendly and provides all the help required. It lacks a common area, however it has a bar in the first floor where is possible to meet all the people as they get to the hostel.


Theoretically anyone could walk into the dorm in the night. There is a guy from the hostel, but he was asleep most of the time when I came home late. It's perfectly located near the Full Moon Beach but far enough away to not hear the noise. Great staff that was very helpful. But the burmese staff do not really speak english. The dorm has it's own sound system installed. Music can be played via an AUX cable. The floor got very dirty/sandy during my stay and the showers were cold.

Thank you for your stay. You can adjust the shower (cold to hot), the staff cleaned the dorm 3x per day (normally no shoe in the dormitory!) and at night we have a camera that records the entry in case of problems.


I had a great time in this hostel and I extended my stay 3 nights. Every comfort is there and the staff is friendly. Very good Shisha.
