    We loved our stay at the Smile hostel. Boy and his family are super inviting and accommodating. They helped us book our ferry to a different island, provided transportation to the Full Moon Festival and Jungle Party, and even provided the body paint for the events. Smile provided us with coffee and cookies every morning. Additionally, rooms were all very clean and Boy made sure things were spotless after “wild” nights out. Perk: really adorable hostel dogs. We liked that it’s family owned.

    Definitely not one of the fanciest places we've stayed but by far one of the best experiences! Boy and his family are AWESOME hosts!! He arranged taxis for you and makes sure you get a fair price. He even drove my friend to the Apple store and translated for her when she lost her phone. This is a great place to come before the full moon party! They have glow body paint, strong drinks and a fun atmosphere! We met so many great people!

    I loved this hostel so much I stayed here for the Half Moon Party and returned for the Full Moon Party. Boy is an absolute legend and both he and his wife always go the extra mile to help out. Rooms and bathrooms were super clean, AC was great and showers were good. If I ever come back to Koh Pha-ngan I’ll stay here for sure! Super sociable with a good mix between party and chilled. I love Poi and Ritchie (the dogs) so much- Boy if you’re reading this then give them a cuddle from Peter Parker!

    Originally went to another place that wasn’t nice at all, found the Smile hostel and Boy and his wife made us feel so welcome so we packed our bags and came here. Boy is an amazing host and everything you could possibly need is at your doorstep, 7/11 right next door and it’s only a 30 minute walk to the pier. Free paint on the night of the full moon and cheap drinks, it was a fun and lively experience. Boy takes care of all his guests and frequently cleans too. Would recommend to anyone

    We came to Smile Hostel and Koh Phangan for the Jungle and Full Moon Parties. Did not disappoint. Smile's staff made the experience great by providing transfers to the parties along with helpful tips for what to watch out for at each of the parties and getting around Koh Phangan. Beds were comfortable, showers and toilets were clean, and the common area was an excellent place to chill out with guests. Would recommend Smile to anyone visiting Koh Phangan. 7-Eleven toasties around the corner! :-)
