I took too long to book a place in Ko Phangnan during the Full Moon Party. I know, I know. I only needed one place for the night. I had lost my ATM card about a month ago near my place in Thailand so I was trying my best to save as much cash as possible since I would be...

Pictures don't comply with reality!!! It shows the pictures of the resort with amazing pool and you arrive to a terrible building next to a sewage smelling really bad. No flush working and no hot water in the toilet. . .

I've stayed at the hotel for 1 day. The location is perfect near the beach and with the market close by. Everytime you have a question they do everything with best effort to help you. There was one of the staff, Melilsa, who helped me anytime so that was really appreciated.They alse offer 1-day trips to the islands, which is...

We would give this hotel a zero score if possible. We arrived around 3.30pm and were not able to check into our room until 5.45pm even though check in started at 2pm. The room was big but not very nice. The air con was broken and dripping onto the bed so the mattress was wet. The sink wouldn't empty once...

I got a room here after booking a room at Bunk Up Hacienda, another nearby hostel which is closed for some reason. Had to wait for the receptionist for a while before I could check in. The room, an 8 bed mixed dorm was ok but nothing special. Lamp and lock in the bathroom was broken. The area was ok,...

I booked this hostel earlier in the year, paid the deposit and received confirmation for my once in a lifetime trip. My stop over New Years was this hostel and even when I booking several months ago it was difficult to find a suitable place to stay so was pleased when I found Havienda to stay at. This morning I...

Place is right on the main strip so if you like the party and full moon this is the place for you. Great little bar next to it and close to the beach. Stayed here once because their resort was full which happens around full moon time. Recommend to anyone on a budget. Fun Fun Staff.

Great customer service from staff, helping me and my friends out with any problems we had, staff were always smiling. Great views from the pool side with cheap food before the full moon. Location slightly awkward as you have to pay 100 baht each to get to the main strip. Great stay would recommend.

Beds are rock hard, the walls had holes in them, we stayed for 4 nights and not once was our dorm bin changed, or given anymore toilet roll. People are allowed to smoke in the dorms so if you aren't a smoker it's horrendous. The area isn't great, there's not a lot around, you have to get a taxi into...

We booked the 5 night full moon package through STA, thinking we would have a private room by the pool/beach in another part of the Hacienda beach resort. It turns out we were booked into a private room in Hacienda Backpackers, a 5 minute walk in land. The room was grotty with a mouldy bathroom and stained curtains. The lock...
