I was here in the low season between full moon parties so the island is very quiet and I enjoyed this hostel. I think the owners are nice, the space was clean, the pool was a nice feature, and location is good. I would stay here again.

As expected, bookings are tough to find around this time as thousands of backpackers flock to this island and reserve accommodations for the massive party. I was looking for a private room for me and my friend, and I spoke to Florian...
