Lovely hostel to stay in if you like to party! 2 dogs that are always around make the place look dirtier than it is, having said that the people who own it are very very accommodating and will help you with anything you need! Great wifi and pool is good for a quick dip on a hot day! Went at... More

I contacted the Magic Wave in late June regarding staying at the hostel during the full moon period. 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... More

Honestly the most disgusting hostel i've ever been to, do not understand all of the raving reviews. The toilet was filthy and did not flush, the shower smelt like urine, the bed linen was ripped. Don't expect to be alone in your room here, we were greeted by a giant cockroach and lizard behind the bed so had to leave... More

Great stay at this quiet little resort, connected with the main hard road cafe gives best of both worlds. Clean and tidy and great addition with a pool! Air con was brilliant, good location for full moon or visits to Eden and very cheap would highly recommend :)

This guest house is clean, comfortable and cheap. I spent two really good nights there and I didn't have any bad experience there. Good for trip with friends and not far from the sea. I really recommend this guest house

I stayed 5 days in this place, and it was really amazing! The place and the swimming pool are beautiful, the staff is cool,good ambiance, and the rooms are clean, with their own bathroom and air co! Good location closed to parties and beach! If you want to go to Koh Phangan, Book on this guesthouse!

Stayed here for 3 nights recently. Couldn't wait to stay as the pics made it look so nice & the pool was an added bonus. Unfortunately in person it looks a little grubby in comparison to the pictures on here. I found the pool area quite dirty & the pool itself didn't look or feel clean (if that makes sense!).... More
