We stayed at Shiralea Backpackers for two nights in March 2012. We booked in advance and opted for the aircon bungalows. V booked us in at arrival and immedately started chatting as if we had known each other for years. I noticed how he knew each of the other guests by name and was just an excellent host. Our bungalow was basic but clean and neat, just how we like it and the two meals we had at the bar restaurant was spot on. Shiralea is not right on the beach but a short 150m walk gets you to Haad Yao beach where you can find various beach restaurants etc. On our last night we had a great dinner on the beach and returned to find V and Joy behind the bar. We shared the last of our red wine carried all the way from South Africa with them and shared stories about our different parts of the world. This was our 5th backpacking trip to Thailand so we have stayed in many budget places around the country and Shiralea is up there with the best value for money you can find. We had a great time at Shiralea and will definately stay there again.

Stayed March 2012

Went to Koh Phangan for a couple of weeks to chill out.......ended up staying 6, all in Shiralea, need I say more?
The crew were brilliant and made everyone feel immediately welcome, the food was great and a good price.
Rooms are much better than I expected for the price range and the hammock outside your door is a great place to lie in the sun for a abit when you want a wee bit of relax time on your own.
The bar restaurant area is great for meeting the other visitors as well as the obvious drinks and eating.
Can't thank Richie and his team enough looking after me.

We went all over Thailand and this was my fav place!! Wanted to stay for ever! The rooms are basic but clean! With fans and warm water! The beach is 1 min walk, and the bar/restaurant is good and cheap! Great if you want to be a little away from the full moon party as it's on the other side of the island! Over all, meet great people, had a great time, and didn't break the bank! All I can say is shiralea you havnt seen the last of me!
