Really good place to spend your first full moon experience, you meet so many people from staying here, definitely one of my favorite places I've stayed in South East Asia. The accommodation itself is clean and simple, which is what you need. We stayed in a private room with two single beds but I have also heard good things about... More

Stayed here over New Years for full moon. Hostel was full of Kiwis! So crazy, great place to stay, was only 100THB per direction for a taxi to and from full moon. Not hard to get to at all. About 20 minutes drive from Haad Rin and full moon beach. The bar down stairs has awesome food and so cheep!... More

I write this review as im sitting at tue ferry terminal waiting for my ferry. I am having second thoughts about leaving. The stay at the backpackers was a highlight of my month in thailand so far, this is down to the staff at hacienda and associated with them. Diego was our guide around the island for the hacienda experience.... More

Stayed for full moon party in October. Paid 18 pounds for 5 nights. Absolutely brilliant location with easy moped hire from the office. Best selling point for me at this hotel was the staff, who were excellent in every aspect, especially on the last day when we missed the last ferry and consequently our flight to bangkok. The receptionis worked... More

Paid £78 for 3 nights. Shower didn't work. Quite a lot of cockroaches. We fixed the shower ourselves after telling the guy who worked there called Sam and he did nothing about it. The only good thing was the taxi fare to the full moon party. 100 baht each, as they had tacos every half hour for a group of... More

This was a great place to stay on Koh Phangan and for the full moon party. The rooms were not that clean, as mentioned in some of the other reviews, but they served their purpose and it was not uncomfortable. The food was good, the staff were nice and helpful, and the pool and bar are great. Lots of fun,... More

We fortunately met Dribbles in Bangkok where he sorted the rest of our travels out and took us out for a beer and local food. Hacienda backpackers is a cool place with a great bar right outside plus access to the resort facilities. Met great people and accomplished some scuba diving in the midst. Go kiwi Go!

had a great time in koh phangan. The pool area and bar were great. Met great people and quite a sociable place. The room however was a little dirty and throughout our stay here, toilet bins etc were not emptied which is a bit unpleasant. The rooms were basic which you expect when paying cheap rates but a bit more... More

Hi Emmagh, We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We have a great crew at the pool bar and they love to get everyone socializing and in party mode. Many guests stay out late and like to sleep in late also and naturally dont want to be disturbed by a cleaning crew so we inform them... More

The staff were nicest, coolest bunch of people i've met on my trip. They truly made us feel welcome and part of the crew. We stayed in the backpackers, met some lovely guests. The rooms are really cheap,and they are a backpackers so if you're not used to backpacker styles better google it.. Constantly saw the staff cleaning the bathrooms.... More

Firstly I have never written a review on trip advisor but since I had such a terrible experience I felt It was necessary. Me and my friend booked our accommodation for the full moon party with hacienda backpackers after it was recommended by STA. We made a conscious decision not to book any accommodation on our travels however we had... More

Dear Alexandra, I am quite surprised you left such a nasty, spiteful and false review. We received a booking from you for two rooms over the full moon period. When you arrived at reception you said you only booked one room. When I produced your booking voucher that showed that you indeed did reserve two rooms you immediately conceded to... More
