For B300 in haad rin, you're not getting anything posh. Yes it wasnt too clean and we stayed in a 30 bed dorm, but it was cheap, you meet people, and the affiliated restaurant is solid and both liquor store and restaurant are relatively cheap. Want something better for the price? Good luck. Know what you're getting into and its... More

Awesome location for the full moon party on haad rin beach! The room was very small and somehow managed to cram 16 beds into it (8 bunks). Bed was the last place youd go to relax. It was dirty, messy and too packed. When i arrived there was a drunk/hangover guy sleeping in my bed and the hostel staff did... More

After staying at another hostel at kohpangan that was such a disappointing experience the jaya hostel was awesome. Although the rooms are tightly packed in, and some of the dorms are on the next street it is extremely social at the hangout, or otherwise known as bar near the reception. My dorm was 22 person with aircon over new years... More

The hostel was a 2 min walk from the full moon party but was absolutely crammed with people. The room was very dirty and wasn't cleaned once during the 3 days we spent there. They did have lockers you could put your stuff in. It wouldn't be somewhere I would want to spend a lot of time in during the... More

During my stay I was extremely disappointed with both the service provided and our room. We stayed in a 12 bed dorm so we weren't expecting luxury however the rooms were ridiculously overpriced and the matresses were hard as anything. We had to buy lilos in order to have a decent nights sleep. I completely understand that every hostel inflates... More

My friend and I booked this hostel for the full moon party, after having read good reviews for it on hostel world. It was just an utter disappointment. £12 a night per person was a complete rip-off. The beds were extremely hard and uncomfortable, appearing at best to have been home made and not very stable. The hot water didn't... More

It was so cheap for 4 of us to secure a room here for the night so we could party freely after coming from Thong Nai Pan, around 1000 baht! Good size rooms, clean, big balconies, bit smelly, bathroom basic, no pool and bit of a walk from the beach so not good if you are drunk but all in... More

This was a really good hotel for full moon we stayed here for nearly a week. Very friendly staff and an excellent atmosphere in the common area. They also have the cutest little dog! Room had a few issues: we could hear the music constantly from reception (although this was OK as we went our every night) but bear in... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on the recommendation of a friend we were traveling with who had previously stayed here for 10 days a few months before. It took us around 30 minutes to get here by taxi from the harbour and is only a few minutes walk from the beach and all restaurants and amenities!. Staff are very friendly... More

Jaya's is a massive hostel in Haad Rin with private rooms & dorms, spanning its own little block, a couple minutes walk away from the beach. I have stayed here for two full moon parties and it's just a great party hostel, very social and lively, with a fantastic friendly staff! They all remembered me when I came back for... More
