“Brilliant Cheap rooms at Hat Rin”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

The place was awesome. The room was very large for the price we paid, 500bh. Airconditioned and hotshower. No TV. Considering it was situated at Hat Rin, the price was reasobly cheap and there is a cafe by the pool where you can chill out. Food served was good and we enjoyed it.. The pool was situated next to the beach, and it gave a very nice scenery.

The price 500bh was a promotion actually and we came during the low-season, but rooms were filled up pretty fast. And advertisement at the hotel said it was for foreigners only

I don't know what these people are talking About . I have stayed at coral MANY times and have loves every minute of it . Yes it is loud, because everyone is having so much fun. The food is super cheap and very good. The staff is defiantly what brings me back. They all. Have so much personality and are soo much fun. It is further from the bars of sunrise beach , but this just means that it is quiet by the time u come home from the other side. U basically lived at this hotel for months because I couldn't get enough. I returned the next year with a bunch of friends who all shared my love for it. I have been back since and will surely visit again.

I stayed here for one week, I was a little worried after reading so many bad reviews but I decided to give it a shot anyways. The rooms were basic and I was paying 500bht, your not at some fancy resort so don't expect a world class room. All I cared about was my room was clean and the shower area was spotless. They don't clean your room here and you don't get that nice bed and sheets like a 4 star hotel. The pool was great, was nice not having to walk to the beach and quite a few people hang out here so it was a great place to meet other travellers. The resturant food was ok. Put it this way it was cheap so usually you get what you pay for. The menu is quite big and the beer was quite cheap. If you don't like the food there was a 7 eleven only 5 minute walk away.

I was happy i stayed here, it is a great place to meet other travellers. The pool seamed to be always clean. Would give it a 6 out of 10. Just don't go here expecting a nice and modern room because you will be dissapointed. If you go in just wanted to have a good time then you will have a good time.

this place has to be a joke, it really is just all about the money, people arrive in there taxi loads from the pier they arrive, treat like some number, unfriendly, none helpful, rude, ignorant staff, not happy what so ever, i tried to talk to the manager about it and i was told that he didnt want to deal with it and i should talk to 'the internet girl' i go in there and try to talk to the 'internet girl' and she's not bothered, doesnt want to help, give information resting on her elbow, and just says sorry no help! even simple stuff like information around the island, and i was just shot down with a no help! the rooms were less than average for the price when bungalows further down the beach or more towards thong sala were cheaper, nicer and come with good service! i dont expect to get hotel service from a hostel but i expect to be treat with respect not like some annoyance or waste of time to them, i cant stress how much i dont recommend this place, my advice avoid this place, get a beach bungalow further up the beach and enjoy your stay in koh phangan, just because your further away from haadrin doesnt mean its more expensive or harder to get to, taxi prices are set and you can have a more enjoyable stay anywhere else in any other resort!

Oh dear. This place is so over priced and not very
Nice.We payed around 30 pound a night as it was full moon- we had to book for 5 nights but left after 3. The rooms are so depressing - jobbie brown! Why? To hide the Miskitos and the dirt!
Also they have black out windows so no natural night ever comes in. I have jails which are nicer ( on the tv that is)
Food was cheap and ok, Drinks at happy hour were great price.
The pool party was great and
mental! I would go back to the pool
party but never ever stay there
again! So many better places to
stay at a much better price.

I stayed here for about 8 days when we got stuck due to torrential rain in Thailand. Have to say that I enjoyed my time here. The staff are fun and interact with everyone. I also had a tab going for a while and the reception and bar staff were really relaxed about me just adding to it for about 2 days. I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone who is looking for high standards as you can still see body paint on the tables and in the rooms. They hold pool parties and market themselves to the young backpaker crowd. Restaurant food is reasonably priced but a bit bland. Only a 15 min walk to sunrise beach which is ideal and if you are there definitely go to the 'treehouse' on the beach next door!

If you're young looking for fun, adventure and to get extremely drunk then this place is party central. If you're older and/ or have standards/ pretensions then avoid completely.

We were backpacking and as backpacking gaffs go this was five star! Your own room, clean and decorated with your own toilet and shower all for a more reasonable price than you would get sharing a 10 bed dorm in Europe. The staff were OK and very friendly, the drink was cheap and the food was excellent in the restaurant (but excellent food is par the course for Thailand).

Speaking from experience the Mediterranean party places are tame compared to Kho Phanagn and when you take this comparison further this accomodation is better than a lot of young people get in the Med. The key words here are young, backpacking, partying and adventure. If you don't like these words don't go near this place, if you do book up straight away cause you'll love it!! (Sorry if theres any golden oldies who love to party and paint there faces I'm generalising!!)
