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!
The location is great if you like to be in nature. For those who plan to do a lot, it's a bad location. Staff was friendly but only one of them speaks a little bit English. The price is too much. For less than half we could book a house in a resort in Koh Phangan. And the price of a taxi to the city is far over realistic price. It is their own driver and he asks much more than a trip from the city to Bangkok. They know you can get anywhere without their taxi.
Matrassen versleten. Geen luxe, wel in orde. En lekker eten!
Supervriendelijke host! Ze behandelen alsof je familie bent. Heel sfeervolle kamer!
Zeer vriendelijk! Heel mooi afgewerkt guesthouse, superproper. Alleen is de 4beds-bedroom een kamer met een dubbel en een enkel bed. Ze gaan ervan uit dat het jongste kind bij de ouders slaapt. Dat lukt natuurlijk alleen met kleine kinderen.
Friendly, but not able to keep the promisses: laundry almost later ready than our departure, prices tours and bus-boat-bus verry expensive compared to downtown for the same buscompany, noisy airco, only one staffmember was able to understand a little bit of English. No lockers, keys stay just at receptiondesk. Good point: They managed to book a private boat for a two days/one night trip ready to start in only one hour.
Very friendly, we missed a locker in the room, because reception doesn't keep always prelongings.
Verry friendly hosts!
Great hostel. We did stay a whole week. Super family room.
