They were absolutely lovely! They carried our bags, they accommodated for every need- really great experience. In return for your custom you receive free tea and coffee, a free Indian buffet before the full moon and discount vouchers for their brother restaurant and shop.

AMAZING staff, very helpful despite not speaking the best English. Clean dorms, AC works well, more than enough toilets and showers with hot water, free tea/coffee and water refill, delicious Indian Buffet the night before Full Moon party and free buckets the night of Full Moon. Also a great place to meet other travelers.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at om Ganesh. The location is great because it's a 5 min walk from full moon and the beach. Air con, indian dinner buffet, free body paint, and free bucket make this a good deal. Only negative is that beds are rock hard.

Definitely check out their restaurant, you get 10% off and it's the best Indian food I had. Not the best hostel you'll ever stay at but good if you just wanna check out the full moon party and meet lots of people while hanging out in the front of the hostel. Also the staff is really nice

thank you very much for your reviews , sorry every body paying 1800 baht for three night minimum stay around full moon party . i think that is not big price for what i give free dinner free bucket body paint and all the time free tea and coffee. and drinking water. even your all go to beach you carry water from my hostel to expend all day on the beach . why you dont responce that, i think after you leave from here you forget all. even i make only party music on the full moon night.

I Iiked to stay in this hostel. They gave us free bucket of thai whiskey, free paint for the full moon party and there was a free indian food buffet. It's very well located, very close to the pier and just a 5 minute walk from the full moon party beach. The only complain I have about this hostel is the hardness of the bed. It was almost like sleeping on the floor. Don't take me wrong, I love hard mattress but I wouldn't consider this beds had mattresses at all. Would stay again anyway.

Couldn't have chose a better hostel to stay at for Full Moon Party, here for 4 nights and would definitely have stayed longer if I had not already booked an outbound flight. Staff were very friendly, provided food night before Full Moon for everyone, and set up chairs and tables out the front for pre drinking and body painting, which really bought everyone together like a big, drunken OmGanesh family. Stay here for a great time. Security great too, individual dorm keys! Highly recommended!

Stayed her over NYE and the price was jacked up for the time of year. Definitely not worth the cost. The bathrooms downstairs were gross but the room was ok.

Excellent hostel for fullmoonparty. 5 minutes walk to the beach where it all happens but not in the loud music and annoying buckeeeet-screamers. The Indian buffet is nice and the free bucket is strong. The dorms are fine but the AC is freezing and the beds are like stone. It's a very good place to meet people and quit cheap for a hostel during full moon. They also have 5 showers (2 hot, 3 cold), 8 toilets and 8 urinals. I was here during fullmoon and never had to wait.

The staff are the funniest, friendliest and most hospitable hosts I've ever had! Bought me a big big big cake for my birthday and candles and everything. Heart of full moon party. Clean. Sociable. Cheap scooter rental. Fastest wifi of any hostel I've had. Would recommend always. See you guys next year!!

This is a great full moon party location, it also close to everything. The hot showers are nice I never had to wait. Wifi is good and the staff are excellent, always willing to help. The common area could be better though, it's pretty basic and I didn't feel encouraged to hang out there.
