Great place to stay for full moon. Having the pool was ace, right on the beach. Staff helped to sort out loads of day trips and used their own taxi's to give us lifts. Would definitely recommend


We stayed in the hotel for the half moon party. We only stayed because we had already paid. Do look into this property on their own website as we felt that we were sold an airconditioned room when it was infact only fan. The location was good for Ban tai, however the beach is poor and there is very little in the surrounding area. The pool and restaurant were good. We would not stay here again as the room is exceptionally basic and didn't feel overly safe.


Had a great stay here; was a little bit in the middle of no where but that didn't matter as you can rent a motorbike from the office to get around. Staff were so lovely; helped with everything and the pool was such a bonus!


The travel agent woman in the office was by far the best part of the hostel. She was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. As far as the rest of the hostel, we stayed during full moon so it was bustling. We didn't have anyone ever clean our room because they said the hostel was 'too busy.' That surprised me because everyone was pretending like they'd never seen a full moon party before. The rooms themselves were fine...hard beds and ants but secure. The beachfront was a highlight, for sure.

Was here for full moon. Don't get basic rooms with just a fan. So incredibly hot we thought we would die. Had ants in our room that bit us at night. Location was okay. Best thing about hostel was pool and restaurant (kinda expensive but everyone in Koh Phangan was) and staff was great.


Stayed here over the full moon! Great atmosphere, very social setting. Nice not to be on top of haad rin beach! Always a pre-party and organised taxis to the various parties around the island. Nice pool to chill in when it all gets too much. Yes there may be a water shortage over full moon- however this is island wide and not necessarily a problem as its only gone for about an hour! Best hostel ive stayed in for a while!
