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.

Staying at Shiralea was a great experience! Special shout out to Brendan Lunney for making our stay there exceptionally memorable:)! Thank you for being our personal tour guide for the day as we scootered around the island! We got to see beautiful beaches, a waterfall, elephants, a temple & experience the Saturday market:) It's staff like Brendan that make you wanna come back...maybe we'll see you again before you have to leave:) Thanks again for the awesome vibes!

I've travelled extensively through Thailand and can honestly say I've never been happier than the time I spent at shiralea. From the setting to the staff the whole experience was perfect. And the location to the beach is perfect to.

Very close to the beach, however haad rin is a pretty expensive cab ride away to the other side of the island. The general atmosphere was incredible, both staff and other guests very friendly, and upon arrival we were greeted with a beer pong competition (which we only found out at the end it cost is 300baht, but well worth doing nonetheless). Wide range of facilities including a free pool table, swimming pool and film/tv room. Perfect place for backpackers.

It was the best hostel we have seen in our tree months journey! You feel like family from the first minute. Our children loved the place! Great meals. 'Welcome home' and 'You are more than welcome', quotes from the staff: it tells enough. You have to book at Shirelea to feel what we can't explain!

Great hostel, close to the beach, friendly staff, fun environment (bar onsite with pretty good food too), rooms are bungalow style and clean, also close to reefers diving (Mitch is awesome!).

Welcomed with a beer on the house and a very friendly worker. Very cute bungalows and luxury of your own verandah and hammock! The 'movie area' is perfect for meeting like minded travellers. Overall a great stay - I will definitely go back!
