Property Description

At Phanganist Hostel what we offer is a different experience! We are not about just being the cheapest hostel, we bring you something special, something unique!
Our hostel is of the highest quality on Koh Phangan so that you can come and enjoy the luxury of high class living but with much more engagement with lots of people and the chance to get involved with the many things that we do.

Phanganist Hostel is a collaboration between Koh Phangan’s legendary Drop In Bar and the island’s online portal of 7 years

The meeting of these two island institutions guarantees you the BEST Koh Phangan experience when you stay with us at Phanganist Hostel!
Located in the heart of Koh Phangan perfectly between the famous Full Moon Party Beach of Haad Rin and the chilled out vibes of the West Coast, everything is easily reached from Phanganist Hostel and Headquarters.

We have pushed the standard of dormitory to an all new high, offering guests clean quality AC rooms with bed separation, privacy curtain, light and power outlet and big lockers, so you can kick back and relax in the privacy of your own bunk.

Guests also get 1 free drink at Drop In Bar Haad Rin every night that you would like to go to Haad Rin beach! We also have free BBQs every Full Moon; on the night before Full Moon Party and one on the day of Full Moon.

We have a swimming pool complete with large sun deck and sun beds, a poolside bar, pool table and platform space for yoga, dance, fun and shenanigans. We have regular night-time events with the best DJs on Koh Phangan. Cool off with a swim and meet other guests and friendly staff whose mission is to make sure you have the best real Koh Phangan experience whatever desire or direction you want to take. We’re here to help!

Drop In Bar was the first beach bar in Haad Rin and will celebrate its 28th anniversary next month, it’s been there since some of the very first years of the Full Moon party and has grown with it in many ways.
Owner P Toh took over the family business in 1999 after he worked his way up from cleaning tables and gaining a fascination with music.
Drop In Bar have some of the best knowledge of Koh Phangan’s most famous event which is the Full Moon Party, they know what you want to drink, what you want to dance to, how to give you the best fun and most importantly how to take care of you.

Three years ago P Toh met Sharon the CEO and creator of at the Full Moon Party! They formed a friendship and Pi Toh enlisted the services of the website Phanganist to help promote Drop In Bar and to take photos of their parties.

From the start of the website in 2010 up to today became well known for its photo coverage of the island’s famous party scene and there are now thousands of galleries with photos from most of the parties on the island.
In 2013 it became important to cover all aspects of the island so Phanganist began writing daily articles and interviews with the island’s residents and visitors and on various subjects.
Now serves as the main online portal and magazine for the island with its ethos to show only positivity from Koh Phangan, who needs another negative media source? Not us!

The great thing about this combination between Drop In Bar and for the Phanganist Hostel is that you really do get the whole package! This is the creation of the local Thai people and Western Expats so that all aspects are carefully thought of with minds from both sides. View House Rules

    BEST HOSTEL! I already stayed at the phanganist last year (low season) and then a couple days ago (high season). Loved it both times, there’s always a lot of people and a good atmosphere. I actually came back to phangan just to meet up with Gui (the main man of the phanganist) and CK (he worked there last year). They made me feel like home! The beds are very nice and comfy and the facilities are clean. The chillout area makes it really easy to meet new people. Super good for SOLO TRAVELERS!❤️

    This was one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at! The island is an absolutely incredible place to explore and the staff are very helpful with finding activities. This place really felt like a family. There was always something going on and the night life was insane! Overall this place has an amazing vibe and I can’t wait to go back :)

    Rooms were a bit dark and mattresses are rock hard but other than that we loved our stay here during the Full Moon Party. Atmosphere was great and the staff were really friendly, good place to pre & their partnership with Drop In bar meant we could enjoy the full moon without all the crowds and with toilet access lol would stay here again

    Really great hostel. The pool and bar area makes for a guaranteed good atmosphere. Options for big nights out every night but also a nice area to chill in the evenings. Ideal location for the half moon festival - easily one of the best hostels I stayed in during my trip!

    Stayed here for the Full Moon Party because of the 3 night minimum. Most places have 4-5 night minimums during the full moon, but I’ll say this was one of the coolest hostels I stayed at in Thailand. Close to many shops and restaurants, and the rooms are detached from the main office and bar/pool area which was cool too. Beds were good with curtains and the lockers were big enough to hold all my belongings. Showers and sinks had good water pressure as well. Definitely stay here or slumber party!

    The free nightly dinner was a nice touch however the rooms are very dark and the bathrooms are kinda gross. I booked a trip to Bangkok with the front desk for the next morning at 8:30am. They advised me to be at the pier by 8am. They knew I would need to be checking out before then yet when I tried to no one works at the front desk until 9am apparently. I don’t know why the lady who sold me the ticket didn’t realize this. Luckily the bartender was there and said she’d give me back my deposit.
