Great hostel to stay for the full moon party, good atmosphere and easy to meet people!


Staff are great- free buffet was great, we stayed on full moon night and a couple of nights before, there was always masses of people outside- really social place. Loved it!

Don't expect anything from this hostel, but a bed to sleep. The only positive thing there, was to be really close to the party. I knew that it wouldn't be a nice place, but just for one night, worth it. Highly recommended if you want to stay one night , that you won't even sleep.


We didn't stay for a full moon party but the location was great had we chosen to. When we arrived he didn't have a record of our booking and gave us a dorm for 10 instead of the 8 we booked online. The lobby was the only communal area to be in but felt hot and uncomfortable. The bathroom facilities were disgusting and constantly smelt of eggy drains, dead cockroaches on the floor, dirty bath mats strewn in the bathroom and only four showers for the apparent 85 that they could accommodate.

thank you very much for bad reviews . we have narmaly very quite and very little people then full moon party.and when you booked that should be after full moon party. we had 6 bath room and 6 shower room for 82 people there never any bad reviews how you filing for lobby hot and communal areas was small. we have two ciling fan in lobby area and that common almost enough enjoy for 82 people every full moon party. so thankyou for your reviews you must think before you give reviews


I really dont know how this is one of the best rated hostels in koh panghan… The location for the full moon party is very good and during it the atmosphere is also great, but besides that the hostel is very poor! Staff is very unhelpful and a bit rude (apart from one guy), bathrooms are always dirty and rooms almost never get clean! i have seen people coming in and out staying on the same bed and they never changed the bedsheets…

I stayed here over full moon, good location and helpful friendly staff. Good wifi.


We stayed there during the Full Moon Festival. The Hostel offered some specials like a Indian Buffet and Free Buckets. It was also very cool that all the Hostel guests could sit together outside. I highly recommend this Hostel in Koh Phangan
