Loved this place. Ended up staying twice during my trip to Thailand. Was here for Christmas and New Year then came back in February. It's the kind of place you go to and never want to leave, it's got just the right balance of chill out and party. I stayed in the bungalows and the dorm rooms, both are lovely,... More

We have stayed for four nights in this hostel which has been fantastic and all of our problems have been solved soon by the staff. We had a terrible smell in the bathroom of our first bungalow (I hope they have fixed it) and they changed us the room, and for another night we stayed in the dorm which was... More

Best Hostel in Thailand! It's quite a bit away from the center but that makes it even more interesting, especially if you're there on the weekend of the Full-Moon-Party and don't want to have 20'000 other people around you. The dorms are perfect, the bathrooms are nice, they have a Bar with lots of events going on, for example on... More

I will say firstly we didn't speak to staff about any of our issues - mainly because we are incredibly lazy and couldn't be bothered with the hassle. The one person amongst us who wanted to complain was so angry that we had to lock her in a room to calm down before plying her with alcohol until she was... More

If you're looking for a chilled out hostel out the way of the full moon area of Koh Phangan then Shiralea is perfect. We stayed in both a bungalow and a dorm, both were so nice and really good value for money, it's definitely the cheapest you'll find on the island too! Helpful staff, nice social area and good food.
