Liked: Great value hostel with an amazing atmosphere. Very cool place to stay and excellent value. They are right on the beach, near all the parties and main town have a bar and lounge area on the beach which is really chilled in the day and had some great parties at night. Staff are all fun and friendly, there is even a tree house and hammocks on the beach. This is the best value place I have stayed and offers so much for less than £5 a night. Definitely recommend this to any fun loving travelers visiting phangan

Disliked: I couldn't stay longer

Liked: Beach was lovely, social space was really cool, breakfast was GREAT. The rooms were always clean and it was a quiet area.

Disliked: Too many dogs on the beach fighting, apparently the dogs belonged to the hostel but no one seemed to take responsibility. This was very stressful for the people trying to relax on the beach.

Liked: Schöne Atmosphäre direkt am StrandGute WLAN Verbindung in der unteren Ebene. Leckeres essen! Freies Frühstück über fullmoon. Freie Taxen zu den Partys. Leckeres BBQ!

Disliked: Keine Klimaanlage in den oberen Zimmern, nur Ventilatoren, die nicht wirklich gekühlt haben. Es war pervers heiß um zu schlafen. Ebenso gab es nur wlan in den unteren Räumen.

Liked: The free breakfast (2 days before, 2 days after the full moon) is a huge plus, and free water is grat too.Really close to the jungle experience party, lots of people, really good vibe, nice staff, etc.Can't lock the room but plenty of lockers although I didn't feel like I needed to use one...I would definitely come back.

Disliked: A bit disappointed by the beach : full of rubbish everywhere...And the price was a bit high but like anywhere else during the full moon period.

Liked: This was a great place to stay over the Full Moon period. Every night was buzzing and there was lots going on. It was really easy to meet other people in the common area and it was good fun! The free breakfast was also a good point too.

Disliked: Only negative was that every day about half of the bathrooms/showers in the place were out of order.

Liked: It was great for meeting other backpackers as it had a bar and a big common area with a free pool table. Also very good at organising taxis for everyone for free! And pre-parties were perfect for drinking and drinking games before full moon etc. Free breakfast and dinner for 4 days over full moon. Cleaner was constantly working hard to keep every area of the hostel tidy. The location was good as not too close too parties so music could keep you up at night but not too far away too. The cinema room was a fantastic idea if you need to chill out for a bit or cool down in the air con and the hammock are is great too.

Disliked: Only two fans in an 8 person room, air con but would be good but would be hard due too building layout. Saying that when we asked to change rooms they happily changed us to an air con room with no extra charge or problem. The only minor thing we could say is to maybe get another cleaner/maintenance person as there is only one man who has to do everything.
