STAY HERE! You won't regret it. Best hostel ive stayed in; As soon as I arrived I was welcomed into the ringside family. met so many people, some of whom i travelled with after. Paul is an amazing host with a natural love for the island so can help you explore! he will do everything he can to make sure your stay is the best, I stayed a week longer than I intended and I can't wait to return! Also great thai Food at the restaurant next door. Can't imagine anywhere on ko phangan can offer the same.
I really liked this place, the staff were amazing and so accommodating! More like friends than hostel owners. They took us to a Caberet show and for lunch and made sure we were having a good time. You can rent motorbikes from them and have fresh coffee too. The rooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were really nice. Very close to the night bazaar and a street with lots of restaurants also the train station isn't too far. Enjoyed my stay and would probably return!
Two ladies running this place are lovely, one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in, it's a bit of a walk to the town (but a nice walk), or manoj is a tuk tuk driver/tour guide associated with the hostel and he always gives a very fair price and is a really nice guy so made it a lot easier! Food was very good and you can relax on the balcony in peace. Very good stay overall! If I was going back to kandy I would definitely stay here :)
Hostel is very small, but for a few days it does the job. The lady running it doesn't speak much English but she tries to help in every way she can. It's right next to the beach which is nice, and a little walk to mount Lavinia or a short bus ride to the city centre.
