Property Description

More of a resort than a hostel. We may be more expensive than some hostels on Koh Phangan, but that's because we offer more!

What do we offer?
- 100m private beachfront! That's right, we are right on the beach! Not on the side of a busy dusty road.
- 24hr massive swimming pool
- Amazing party bar, right on the beach!
- Sports area including a pool table, ping pong table, sports equipment, and beach volleyball court
- Dorm and Private bungalows right on the sand
- More than just a hostel, a place for travellers to meet and experience tropical paradise, on a beautiful resort property converted for the 18+ market
- 24hr snacks, food, and drinks
- Beachfront restaurant with a large variety of asian and western cuisine
- Wide open spaces under a lush green canopy, where you can find quiet space to relax, or join in one of the many organised activities
- The wild parties of a party hostel, with the relaxation options of a retreat. Party when you want, chill when you want.

*Unlike many hotels around Koh Phangan we only require a 3-night minimum stay around the monthly full moon party instead of 5 or more. Chances our you'll be wanting to extend your stay with us after you arrive though. We do recommend getting here a few days before the Full Moon Party though because the other parties leading up to it are often even better than the main event.

Looking forward to you joining our family soon

*All photos are taken on our property, it really is that good!

Facilities include:
- Private bungalows for singles, friends, or couples
- 4 and 6 bed beach bungalow dorms
- 6 bed poolside bungalow dorms
- 4/6/8 bed main building dorms
- At reception we can help you book or hire: motorbikes, local tours, party tickets, SCUBA diving, taxis, boat trips, laundry & towels, cooking classes, kitesurfing, ferry tickets, and other adventures!

PLEASE NOTE: Some room descriptions are not fully available on the app. Basic Twin Private and Basic Double Bed Private are fan only rooms and the ensuite bathrooms do not have heated showers.

***Property Policies & Conditions:
1. Check-in Time: from 2pm, if you are early you can store your bags and enjoy the beach
2. Check-out Time: until 11:00am.

8. We require a 1000 baht damages deposit on arrival per booking (Max 4 ppl per deposit)

    Absolutely awesome. Met so many amazing people, including the staff, who went all out to keep a constant fun vibe about the place. The location is sweet- right on the beach with so much space, a pool, wicked bar, hammocks, beach volleyball and more. I was here during the full moon party and they went all out to kickstart the party for us. Live music, glitter, drink deals and a beach bbq it was wicked. Then after finally coming back, the bar is 24 hours so we could keep having fun. Loved it

    This is the best hostel I’ve stayed in during my last 3 months of travelling! It has everything you could possibly need - 24 hour bar & pool, beach, massage tower, reasonably priced food, good happy hour deals, bike rental & towel rental. The staff were amazing and super friendly, making such an effort to include everyone! I probably could have stayed here for more than 4 nights but unfortunately didn’t have time! Thanks for an amazing stay and massive thanks especially to Jamie & Vlado xoxo

    We stayed at good times a few days before the full moon (but not actually over the full moon period). The facilities were good and it has a nice pool, although the tide was very low so don’t expect to be able to swim in the sea. Only downfall was the very squeaky beds which made it difficult to ha e a good nights sleep. The location isn’t great for full moon as it’s quite a drive but the staff can arrange taxis. Not a great location if you can’t ride motorbikes either but still a great hostel!

    The beach and pool are great! Nice for solo backpackers and close to Slumber Party (the other big party hostel). The top bunks have no railing and one of them will have the AC unit directly on it making it very uncomfortably cold/damp blowing directly onto you. Worth requesting a bottom bunk
