Everything was excellent in this hostel, pictures online are not update the owners are busy to build a new bar and new swimming pool area for the moment. They are very helpful ( and Marlène one of the 3 Magic Dogs is so cute ans funny :-)very close to all parties - beach and facilities , I will come back in July to enjoy the new installations there


Cool place but it was relatively empty during the full moon period. Our room of 14 had only 3 people in it for the 2 nights before the full moon and 9 for the full moon night so the atmosphere was lacking. The location is good, 2 mins from a nice beach and taxis can be hailed almost instantly from the Main Street 1 minute away. Therefore it was a good location to get to Haad Rin from.


We spent a very nice journey at The Magic Wave !! The owners are really kind and the atmosphere is so cool. Next time we come back to Koh Phangan, we already know where we will stay :)


Lots of mosquitoes and a scary dog which is aggressive when you return late at night. Vibe much nicer when lots of people around.

Hello Simran, You explained me your fear about ALL dogs,we understand that.Anyway,told you to don't be scared about our dog.I explained that to you and showed that he's very kind and will never be agressive or attacking someone.In Phangan you got a lot of dogs everywhere, you must know that, but i never saw an aggressive one against humans.Mosquitos?We are @ 15 meters from the beach,means that it's a very "mosquito free area", so i don't understand.Thailand is a tropical country with mosquitos.
