Echo Beach Backpackers
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

Echo beach is a great place to meet other travellers. We made some great pals when we were there for oct full moon party.
Though it's not in hat Rin it is near the jungle party. They also put on cheep taxis for everyone. Help with any travel plans and there's a free breakfast.
Rooms are like any other shared dorms I've stayed in clean comfortable and filled with great people.

Would definitely recommend this place to any backpackers. Especially of your travelling solo cause the common area and nights organised by the hostel makes it so so easy to make friends.
A group of us are meeting up in oz in the new year and we can't wait.
Book here and I hope you enjoy your stay

First hostel me and my girlfriend stayed in after 3 weeks off hotels around Thailand, we stayed over the full moon party and all I have to say is it was so chilled out and relaxed great big sofas chairs and hammocks, beach write on back step of the hostel no ac in all the rooms but not really that much of an issue hope to be back some day met some great people there.

I have visited echo many times, and it's always a hub of fun and friendliness. Great bar with tasty cocktails overlooking communal comfy sofas right by the beach. Amazing buffet, very good value with two movies on at night. Very friendly helpful staff and an array of super Dj's to get you in the mood before the big parties, with taxi's all organised and cheap as chips. Great for meeting people, and always a laugh.

Amazing place, ran by some really friendly people. I was planning on staying for a few days but stayed for a couple of weeks as the price is so cheap. The beds are super comfy and with the access to free lockers it really is a 5 star hostel.

I loved the location of the hostel, close to everything going on on the island. The staff helped me out with all my needs. For example renting a scooter or arranging a taxi to the half moon!

Top place i am planning on coming again!

Room Tip: Honestly take my advise! Stay at the Echo Beach backpackers hostel

Echo beach is a great hostel on Koh Phangan. Great dorms with a AC, a movie room with 2 movies every night, big communal area with couches.
Easy to get to all the partys on the island and has a lovely bar itself.
But the best thing is the helpfull staff. The owner and the people who work their are really helpfull, friendly and fun. Going out with the staff makes it more fun because they know the ins and outs and the places to go.

Allround a really good experience and it made my stay on Koh Phangan the best.

Room Tip: Ac rooms are cheap and really good

Echo beach is a great hostel, it's in a good location with easy access to all the parties. It has a lovey bar and chill out area. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The beds are very comfy. Could be a little cleaner. Also they have a great cinema room and show movies every night so its a good place to hang if you don't want to party

Echo beach is defiantly the best hostel I have stayed in in Asia! The location is brilliant as its quiet in the day but all the parties are easily accessible. There is a private beach and lounge which is great for meeting people, chilling in the day and drinking at night with their pre parties! It's also been renovated since I arrived with nice showers and movies on every night! The staff were amazing and made my stay in koh phangan brilliant. Rooms are great value compared to the rest of phangan. I would whole heartedly recommend this hostel to anyone!
