What can I say... From the moment I stepped through the door it was one of the best hostel experiences I have had. Scott, the owner was really friendly and helpful, the place was welcoming, clean and sociable and in perfect distance from any of the party's we went to. You could hire mopeds from the hostel for 150 baht... More

I didn't stay here for very long (1 night) but my impressions of the hostel is that its clean, well maintained and fun. It's got a stocked bar, x-box and a great common room. I went during low season so the hostel wasn't very filled up, but I'd imagine come full moon or half moon this place would be poopin.... More

So I wait a couple hours for an internet point to open, meanwhile I get a room in another hostel for a couple nights and by 10 something I come back with my... More

this place was simple and great, people working there were so kind and helpful with everything I wanted to know about the islands and party life, They also made me feel very safe as they did not let just anyone into the building, there is an age restriction as well as a number of rules regarding drug use, all the...

I stayed here for about 20 days (completely unplanned but I was enjoying myself). As far as room quality goes its about as good as a hostel gets, the dorms themselves are all very clean. The rooms are mostly out of audio range when music is playing so getting sleep isn't an issue, the owner is mindful of people in... More

- in terms of staying somewhere for the party vibes of the island, this place is exactly what you need. Great place to meet people, be hungover (hundreds of films) pre drink -alcohol is super cheap and owner makes great cocktails! The owner is super laid back, and the hostel literally offers anything you could possibly need ! Just literally... More

I booked two nights just after Black Moon and ended up staying another two. Even though the place was pretty quiet (as there were no big parties on) and it's in a slightly quieter part of the island (although still convenient!), there was a great crew there and Scott and A made everyone feel very comfortable. Heaps of South Park... More
