    Islander is situated very close to the Mae haad pier so perfect for the first few nights on the island! Staff are extremely friendly and the rooms are similar to any dorm throughout Asia. The free pool table.doesnt go amiss either! I'm still coming back here after living on the island for a month to see the staff and have a couple of games

    Lovely little hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Hostel was really clean and staff were good at catering for your needs with making you breakfast each day and helping you to book ferries etc. Location was slightly annoying as it was a little far from the centre of the town and so would suggest renting a scooter to get around. Overall though I would recommend!

    Nice hostel with free pool table. Big (500 bhat) key deposit. Well located near the pier, not so close to the town / main areas

    Pretty good standard hostel. Very close to the ferry and in town (so it’s close to good food, etc). Overall pretty clean and nice staff, but a portion of the common area closes early. Not the most social place, but it’s cheap which is nice!

    Great hostel but a little bit far from the main strip and the beach! However it was only a 15-20 minute walk to get over there. Overall happy with the stay minus the location!

    Happy hour said 6 to 9. But the girls shut everything down around 8 830 every night. Only 4 showers and 4 toilets for the whole 24 door beds. But the pool table was a bonus
