Amazing hostel - ends up there 3 times during my stay in Thailand and was impressed every time.


Excellent atmosphere for the Half Moon Party, which is why we stayed here. Good facilities for partying and then chilling out and recovering. Word of warning to others, having a bar tab does not mean that the drinks are free. Somehow the accommodation cost in our final bill only equated to 10%. Two words "Attitude Adjusters!"


The prices were a bit steep due to the Full Moon Party- it was much too expensive for what you got, in my opinion. There was also a tour group there at the same time and the staff catered to them more than other travelers. The service could definitely be improved.


stated here for three nights! food is great! really chilled out and relaxed atmosphere. staff were great, very helpful! they call and get taxis for you! arrive super quick! would defiantly stay here again:D

We stayed here for six nights and when we came back to the island a week later we knew we had to come back here! The staff is really awesome and they make an effort for you to feel welcome and relaxed. It's a good place to meet people, although it can be a bit quiet when there's no moon party (the area is quiet, not the hostel itself). We loved the pool and the bar. Only downside is that it's far from the big parties, but they arranged taxis (around 200baht) so that wasn't really a problem.
