Stayed here at the end of my trip. It was one of the best hostels i've stayed at. So cheap and facilities are great. Staff are helpful and fun. Good hostel if you want to socialise and party, but you can also chill out and relax if you're not into it. And they had puppies while i was there

I just slept one night in the dorm but found this place nice and very good value for money. Bed was comfortable, people nice and the breakfast buffet for 100 bath was also very good value. Would stay here again if around in the area.

It's a cool space in the common area which is what all the photos are of. But the rooms are average and the wifi doesn't work in some of them. Cold showers too. Most people are here to get drunk so if that's not your vibe then don't stay here, there's music and loud drinkers till the early hours most...

The ambiance here is really cool, great for meeting like minded backpackers and socialising. The room was really clean and the air con was much needed. The bathrooms were fine but the fixings are a little loose on the wall and I got stuck inside once from a dodgy door. BUT they have the cutest puppies running around outside and...

Welcoming hostel. Arrived here with no booking and the guy who sorted our room was very sound. Food, atmosphere and happy hour all good. I must mention though, we were not impressed by a staff member's comment when we were 15 minutes late for check out asking if we "knew what time check out was." Felt like I was back...

A group of 7 of us stayed here in January over the full moon period. We found the accommodation excellent and I will defiantly recommend it to anyone visiting Koh Phangan. The staff were very friendly (could brush up on the bar skills 😏 lol) and welcoming. It was my friend Megan's birthday whilst we were there and they were...
