I stayed here in march for full moon party, the dorms are clean and quiet, A/C works good, bathrooms are also clean and sufficient. The hostel has a pool, and a restaurant with really good food (local and western). It is quite far from full moon party beach -about 15 min by taxi- but i think is worth it. 5... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us on trip adviser. Its great to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the hostel. Its a great low cost accommodation to stay in while on Koh Phangan so you enjoy all that the island has to offer. We are a good taxi ride away from where the full moon is located,... More

My boyfriend and I booked our room at Shiralea based on the glowing reviews from TripAdvisor. We were coming from Chiang Mai and it was our first night in the islands. We were very excited to see this backpackers haven we read all about. However, after a two night stay at this resort we both had to admit that we... More

Thanks for taking the time to give some feed back on your recent stay at Shiralea. We are located in a lovely part of the island but getting from place to place can be difficult if not wanting to catch a cab or rent a bike. There are a few place withing walking distance however the choices are limited. In... More

My husband and I stayed at Shiralea Backpackers with another couple in one of the bungalows in Palm Leaf Valley, and we had an incredible time! Our room was lovely and clean, and a good size for four of us. The bar area was our favorite place to hang out as we were able to meet lots of other travelers... More

All I can say is that it was a dream. So relaxed complete with two chilled out bars (one pool bar and one cafe/restaurant bar). You can get as involved or as distance as you want from everyone and the activities. Super clean and the hostel beds are so comfortable. Definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful stay at shiralea! The dorm rooms are perfect, plug and light for each bed, large lockers and curtain for privacy. Bathrooms are huge and clean and AC is amazing.

I can't say more good things about this hostel. The rooms are clean, with working ac, security is great with a very large locker at the end of each bed, towels are provided, showers are hot, and the pool is refreshing. The bar is a really great place to meet other travelers! The hostel itself is a bit far away... More

Absolutely brilliant hostel, party place. Staff are awesome & really make the place come alive! Good food, great atmosphere, very clean, decent beds. WiFi is poor - probably the only low point. Would definitely return to Shiralea :)

Thanks for choosing Shiralea on your recent trip to Koh Phangan. We have a great young team of staff in the resort, who love to interact with hour guests. We understand that the WI-Fi struggles to keep up with demand but we have found a solution and we should have implemented shortly. Thanks for the review and we hope to... More

We found the rooms spacious with large beds and a large bathroom, we had a gorgeous hammock outside our cabin and the pool was lovely and clean and very deep. Our first night stay was quiet as a tour group had just left but was told another group was arriving soon. When they did it was a lot busier and... More

This was the best place we stayed when travelling in Asia. It was also by far the cheapest. It was amazing. When we pulled up at reception I thought we were at the wrong place it looked too nice.

I wonder why Shiralea calls itself a 'backpackers' resort, which really doesn't do it justice. This a fantastic place to hang up even your fancy suitcase and soak up the good vibes of Haad Yao. Our bungalow was super clean, had two large double beds and a/c. The pool is awesome and the bar is a hotspot of good fun... More
