When looking for good places to stay at on Koh phangan we came across this place and thought with such a high rating and so many positive reviews we just have to check this place out. And we’re so glad we did! :)
From the moment we arrived everything was just convenient, we could rent a scooter right there for only 150 baht a day, so it was totally worth keeping it for the rest of our stay.
You can get your laundry done right there, there are great and cheap restaurants only a couple of hundred metres away and Scott happily suggests his favorites to make sure that you get the best for little money.
He told us about the area so we knew straight away which beach to go to etc.
Our room had a beautiful sea view and it had everything we could have wished for: fridge with an inbuild freezer (awesome because that meant cooled drinks :P), perfectly functioning A/c, a big and comfortable bed (I don’t even sleep that well at home) and we even got little shampoo and shower gel bottles :)
We weren’t there for the fullmoon party unfortunately but we did stay for the half moon party and the pre party that scott arranged was in my opinion better than the event itself
All in all we can totally recommend this place to everyone who wants to have a great time and meet awesome people, have a great backpacker hostel atmosphere plus cleanliness and comfort for a great price.
Plus there’s Newton. Newton is the hostels cat/dog/little person who’s gonna make u feel right at home :)
Thank you Scott for being a great host! Definitely gonna be back :)
