Perfect for partying on Koh Phangan ”

Great staff and value for money hostel. If you’re looking to party and hostel lifestyle, this place is great. If not, can be a bit loud late at night. Has bar and restaurant on site, good prices and quality of food. Also has a lot of extra facilities you won’t find at other places like fitness equipment, football field, pool good level of English etc. Defiantly one of the best places to stay on the island if you’re visiting for the Full Moon Party.

Absolutely Horrendous!”

Firstly the place is disgusting. The pool is green and had vomit from the previous night floating in it. Alcohol covered the floors and seating areas (we know this is a party hostel but it seems they haven't ever heard of a cleaner) We arrived after booking 3 nights in a double ensuite. We were shown to a twin room with shared bathroom. After telling the manager we were told they had overbooked and that was the only room available. We were offered complimentary breakfast vouchers and told we would have a certain amount refunded to us, but only at the end of the day when they would have the 'cash flow' (this should have been a massive red flag but alas.) We accepted as it was the day before new years and we knew almost everywhere was booked. After exploring phangan for the day we arrived back at 6pm and asked about the refund. This is where everything turned nasty. In short, we were told we wouldn't be getting the refund promised. The guy was rude, unapologetic and down right horrible. We decide to leave. Thankfully before we left he was good enough to give us a refund but on NYE this just isn't acceptable. Luckily a hostel only 5 minutes away had had a cancellation and we were able to get 2 beds in a dorm. We are so glad they did because people were always coming from this hostel to our new one to have a better party.

Best hostel in koh Phangan ”

I really enjoyed my time at this hostel, because the staff is just so much fun and very helpful with recommendations on what to do. But even in the hostel there is so much to do, because they have a soccer field, a gym, pool tables, ping pong table, a playstation, a nice swimming pool with a huge chill area and for the evenings beer pong table and lots of drinking games. So it will never get boring, because you will meet amazing people at this hostel as well. At night it‘s like a big family who enjoy their company and stay at this amazing island with crazy drinking games. They also have a restaurant and bar, which is open 24 hours and offers really good Thai food, but also lots of other options to choose from.

Great facilities, it's basically a young adults playground. We stayed for the full moon party so the energy there was awesome. The bed was comfy and the food there was great! If you're a couple, and you want a private room definitely get an ensuite because the room without feels very enclosed as it is a small room with no windows. The aircon was also leaking, it didn't bother us but should probably be fixed so someone doesn't slip. All in all, it's a great hostel and I would recommend it to those who love to party.
