“Noise.. If I wanted haad Rin I'd stay there!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

What a shame the staff have gone a bit mental without the bosses there and in a effort to impress some young chicas have now turned the place into a slightly sad party lodge .. Had a wicked first four days now am sitting on my balcony blasted (and I mean blasted) by cheesy euro dance from the bar..the guys and 'ladies' at the bar must be aurally challenged... And I'm no wall flower... Ask miss Riebel... but this is to the point where I'm checking out in the morning whereas I was gonna stay another week and bring friends over..what a shame for lovely place .

As backpackers go it was really awesome and was nicer than any others i've stayed in, it has everything you need and more. The staff are simply fantastic and go above and beyond. Loved every second and Shiralea and would go back in a heart beat!

My time at Shiralea was fantastic! I had such a good time chilling at the bar, the staff were warm and friendly, and the bungalows were a really nice touch with A/C! Staying there was definitely a highlight of my time in Thailand, especially the shot bell, getting painted for the Full Moon Party, and relaxing and having fun with friends in the bar or by the pool.

This really was the best part of my trip. I felt welcome and right at home. The staff went out of their way EVERY time if I ever needed anything. The food was amazing especially after a full moon party and the bar by the pool = BLISS!!
Oh and did I mention the most amazing location?! Get there!!

Shiralea really was like being on a family holiday but with lots n lots of drinks and wild nights. The staff were so Friendly and welcoming, the food was DELICIOUS and if you ever needed anything they were only too ready to help out. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

The most memorable part of my Thai Island Hopper trip was my time at Shiralea Backpackers Resort! Chilling out by the pool with easy listening tunes and a cocktail in my hand...it was bliss.
The staff there made you feel very welcome & it felt like we were all great mates by the end of our stay. The food offered was of high quality & reasonably priced and the deathly 'ringing of the bell' entitling everyone to shots proved to make some memorable moments.
I will definitely stay here again!

stayed with contiki for a bux and hens but would definitely stay again if i were to travel without a tour, rooms were everything you need as a back packer comfy bed hot shower fresh towel deposit safe air con. staff were beyond amazing they felt like family. food and drink was delicious and cheap both Thai and western style! pool is free for all 24/7! LOVE the bar tab rule. Shiralea staff surprised me and my fiancé with a dinner set up with free bottle of wine! also baked a cake for 2 friends that had birthdays during our stay at the resort! how thoughtful! WARNING time flies when you are there!!! so the only thing i hated was leaving :(
