This place is the best, everything about it is awesome! 100% need to go here
This was such a gem located near one of the best beaches on the island. Great atmosphere, great people, and a wonderful place to spend time a little bit removed from the craziness on Koh Phangan

Had a good experience there. The dorms are a bit dark because (tiny window) but its clean. The bed and especially the locker is spacious (a big backpack fits in). the curtains are great to get some privacy. The bath is clean. recept. is mostly unoccupied but u can organise everyth. at the bar - sometimes u have to wait a bit because they also have to take food/drink orders there. Staff is mostly english speaking expats/working travellers - fine but u notice theyre no professional hosts
Awesome place to stay, it's not near the full moon party but cabs are easy to get (en masse) and incredible atmosphere and location away from everything!
Staff was super cool, friendly and very helpful! I think that one of the best from all the hostels I've been to. Dorm and bathroom very clean. Close to the beach but a bit far from hat rin (taxi 200b). Swimming pool and bar make the place even nicer. Highly highly recommend!!
I've been traveling for a month and a half and it was the best hostel so far. If you're going for the full moon party it is a bit of a hike but you'll have no problem getting around. They arrange the taxi so it's one less thing to think about. This beach is better anyways. Wouldn't do it any over way.
Shiralea is an amazing clean and friendly hostel in the jungle, with private bungalows and also dorm rooms, I ended up staying for 7 nights because I didn't want to leave!! Thanks for a great time to all the guys and I will come back next year jimmy
