This is a big hostel. You might find it hard to make friends. Otherwise I was happy with the facilities and stayed here for two trips to Sydney.
I got a private room and loved it. It was quiet, clean, I liked the bathroom and shower facilities, the restaurant downstairs is a little slow but the food and prices are good.
Tony was absolutely amazing - the nicest host I've ever had. He helped me rent and return a scooter, partied with us at the Full Moon Party, helped me with travel planning and booking, organized day trips for us around Koh Phangan, and more. The location of the hostel is cool because it's not in Haad Rin, meaning it's quiet and you can actually sleep. It's just a 10 minute/100 baht ride east to get to Haad Rin.
Clean bathroom and shower facilities, great basement with pool table, foosball, commercial kitchen, and even a theatre, lots of lounging space to do work. I loved everything about the hostel except the location. It's so close to the Tenderloin which is such a disgusting place to walk through.
Clean room, clean bathroom, huge kitchen, big living room with couches and TV, lots of free computers to use, cool staff, guests were friendly, very good prices. Recommended!
This hostel is so big that it makes it hard to meet people. The main floor is a big restaurant and bar. You have to pay by the hour to use the computers. Wi-fi is pretty spotty in the rooms, so you have to go into the hallway or to the main floor to get internet. Bedrooms were clean and had curtains on the beds. Washrooms were shared for the entire floor so people abused them and left them dirty. I would recommend this hostel for groups, but not solo travellers.
This is my favourite hostel from my eurotrip! Location is great (short walk to the nearest subway station). The staff were really cool, kind and helpful. The free dinners at 7pm were awesome, the whole hostel got together every night like a family. The vibe was amazing, it's very easy to meet people here. Highly highly recommended.
Great location in the heart of the red light district. Room, bed, and ensuite washroom was clean. Staff was average. The vibe in the hostel was not nice, seemed very cold, no one was interacting with each other.
