Would definitely recommend. Cheap, clean, and opposite the beach and Fisherman restaurant. Easy to book up diving, tours, and mopeds through the hostel. All the staff there are more than happy to help with anything!! The staff are from NZ, UK and Germany, so no problems with English speaking, they have also lived on the island from quite some time...

Arrived after hearing endless horror stories about full moon accommodation- but the second we walked in we knew choosing to stay way from Haad rin was a good choice. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean, the place also has a good sized communal area where you can always find someone to drink their reasonably prices buckets with, or just... More

Good value and good party. Stayed here for the full moon, had such a great vibe and awesome people. The communal area and bar is great to meet people and get together before a night out. A fun place to full moon boys and girls!

What can I say that hasn't already been said. There's a very friendly and welcoming vibe to the place. Clean rooms with aircon. 6 bed bunk was perfect for me as I was traveling alone (great place for the solo traveler). Downstairs is the chill out area with tv, couches and bar and a great big table for drinking games.... More

Friendliest hostel ever! Met loads of excellent party people, and the owners really know their stuff about the parties and the area. Good location for all the moon parties and you can rent bikes and book travel from reception. The cheap fan room isn't up to much but the air con rooms are clean and modern with excellent bathrooms and... More

WOW this place is amazing, owners Karen and Tristan were soooo friendly and welcoming, I had the BEST time ever being here, I ended up staying longer than I had planned, Karen and Tristan get you involved in party drinking games at night, and tell you the best places to see on the island, you need to try Tristans Dirty...

Stayed here with some mates I met travelling, and it was hands-down the best laugh I've had in ages. Be prepared to go through endless hangover cycles that are always worth it (have a big breakfast the next morning and you'll be ready for round 2 no problem, even if you didn't plan on a round 2. There will be... More

Hostel- staff we're amazing and very friendly, always willing to help. Stayed in a 6 bed dorm over the full moon party time, one of the other girls decided to cut her hair in the bathroom and leave it so has to put up with that being there till the last day. The bathroom was good size and warm shower,... More

I walked through the door without a reservation and managed to snag a bed in one of the dorms. Thank goodness because this hostel was fantastic. Clean rooms with air conditioning, hot showers and balconies. Did I mention a ton of movies to choose from in the common room, a bookshelf full of travel books and a breakfast to die... More
