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.
3. Payment: Cash (THB) only upon arrival.
4. Cancellation Policy: Up to 7 days advance notice before the arrival date is required.

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

Bookings of 3 or more people will be contacted a few weeks out from their stay to confirm their attendance, and in some cases full payment up front before arrival will be required. View House Rules

    We could not have asked for a better place to stay for the Full Moon Party and Jungle Parties. Jamie was extremely accomodating and was quick to respond to all of our emails even before we arrived. The hostel has everything - pool, beautiful beachfront, massages available on the beach and a 24/7 bar. The staff were all amazing; we had a great time getting to know them and they were super helpful. The pregames before Full Moon and Jungle party were super fun and there was easy transport. 11/10

    We stayed for the full moon for the fullmoon party. Jamie and the rest of the staff were incredible. They cultivate a great environment and the hostel draws a fun crowd of people in the early to mid 20’s. The amenities are also great—hammocks, beach access, pool, and a 24 hour bar. Fun events are held every night and it creates an opportunity to get to know all of the backpackers staying there. I would 10/10 recommend this hostel to a friend. I could not have imagined a better environment.

    Ran into the loveliest people and the best staff here. Beds were standard large dorm affairs, but it was more than made up by the people and the fun had at the full moon....even having people from neighbouring places coming to hang here. Would happily stay here again!

    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed in! Met some amazing people. I would definitely say it was a party hostel - but a great mix of people. It’s also super chilled and a beautiful environment - so much space and shade. Facilities are amazing.

    Fun times. Definitely a hostel that is ment for partying. Days are still quite and relaxing. Bike rental from the hostel is very convenient. If you pop a tire on the bumpy roads you will have to pay. 200bhat. We stayed in the treehouse the first night. Fun unique experience. Cracks in the floors and above the doors so for thoes concerned about bugs or lizards might not be the best. But definitely a cool place to stay! Switched to a private bungalow the next night was great. Beach is nice!

    Very Good

    Things are gonna be expensive around the Full Moon period so it is what it is. The private beach area is lovely and this hostel does have a lovely atmosphere. Far from Haad Rin but close to other important things Phantip Night Market, the pier and other hostels if you wanna dip in and out. However, there’s not really much of an excuse for how poor security seems to be? The lockers can barely fit a day pack and the locks for the dorms on the door don’t automatically lock either. Big concern.
