Stayed two-nights, was only stopping through Koh Phangan for the half-moon party.
On the bright side: rooms were clean (no pests, I looked), A/C was magical, and beds were comfy. Room 6.
Got hard-sold on staying here by this woman with an English accent. Regretted it fairly quickly: the place isn't close to a ton of places to eat / booze / kick it at. Walking 25-30 mins will get you to great places to eat and other hostels that you can hang at. In between Great Bay and your hangout: dirt road, hot asphalt on the main road, empty bars manned by teenage Thai girls. For half an hour!! If the management here were in any way trustworthy then I'd have given more stars. But man, they charge a lot for everything and just the way they do business makes you feel like you're being scammed. No smiles, no effort to provide quality, no suggestions on where to go travel or anything like that, just yells to pay for Item/Service X or go. Given that we weren't surprised that the hostel vibe wasn't there. But hey -- these were just the two nights I stayed at.
