    Incredibly helpful and welcoming staff that make the difference between a good stay and a great one. Lovely location near a beautiful beach away from the bustle of the town but still close to everything you need. A great place to be.

    Shiralea is easily the best hostel on the island. The rates are affordable, the facilities clean, beds comfy and food is delicious and comes in generous servings. On top of that there's a swimming pool and it's like 5 minutes away from the beach. Staff is awesome, especially Charlie who helped us with any problems we had. I definitely recommend it!

    What a very special place. I’ve been to many a hostel all over the world and you would wish they were all more like this. Superb accommodation -stayed in an ac room then moved to a hut with a fan (as I extended my stay) both were very clean and much better than expected for the price. The highlights are the common area and pool. Such a spectacular place to chill and as sociable as you want it to be. Great mix of guests. The Staff are perfect - a super, lovely, welcoming crew. :-)

    Very good hostel with very friendly staff! Amazing if you want to chill, read books, be close to the beach or have a yoga session in the mountains. The food is also good, and the little mexico restaurant next to the hostel has also good food. Just make sure to bring bug spray!! As it is in the middle of the nature, there is mosquitoes everywhere, specially at the bathroom, but would def come back.

    Pretty expensive area of the island, not much to do around except Koh Maa. Not really a backpackers place, more a resort like feeling for a short vacation without focusing on money. Although dorms were alright and staff was helpful.
