Hostel stays on Ko Phangan - what's the best place

Hey everyone, looking to pick your brain on what you consider a good backpackers hostel...one that is inexpensive, is centrally located, draws a good crowd, good place to find a party, clean and safe...

Any suggestions or suggestions in general?

How many days would say I should stay knowing that I'm just coming from Ko Sumui?

I would stay all your time in Phangan! Samui is too commecialized and expensive for backpackers.

I didnt see any hostels while there in June but did see a few cheap rooms in Tongsala the main town on Phangan.

Sure Stevephangan will know.

There are some cheap bungalows In Ban tai about half way between Tongsala and Haad Rin.

Haad rin is where most of the night life is and about 12 kilometers from Tongsala.

Haad rin is where you need to be but not too sure on cheap accomodation there?

We see plenty of backpackers in Haad Rin so there must be some cheaper places to stay.

A Backpacker could soon run out of funds in Samui if on a limited budget.
