Lone traveller in Ko Phangan - Accomodation?

Hi there... I'm a 28yo male from England, I'm looking to spend about a week in Ko Phangan in June. I'll be alone so I'd like to stay somewhere that I can meet like minded people and somewhere near to the beaches and nightlife... any ideas?! Any good hostels?!

I think you are best to stay in Haad Rin or quite close.

I didnt see any hostels on Phangan,i think because there is so much budget accommodation anyway.

Unless you stay in Haad Rin or Tongsala(Main Town) you will have to travel by bike or songtaew for most of the nightlife.

There were plenty of backpackers as well as up market travelers in Haad Rin when I went last june.

Phangan is a lot cheaper than samui so you might stay a bit longer!

You can find some cheaper places to stay on Samui but not as much as Phangan.

If you are on your own in samui you are better off in lamai or Maenam as Chewang is just too touristy.

I am presuming that you are on some sort of budget because you mentioned "Hostels" on both forums, If so and the budget is tight,stay longer on Phangang as samui can get very expensive unless you know the ropes.

I have been to Thailand many times over the years and Samui is one of my least favorite places but Phangan was great.
