4 Singles girls staying in Ko Phangan... HOSTEL or RESORT?

Hi

My girlfriends and I are staying in Ko Phangan for 7 nights... we already have our tickets but we need a decide between staying at a HOSTEL or a RESORT.

We definitively want to meet new people and have lots of fun, but we also want to stay in a nice place...

Also, if we stay at a resort... it will be probably full with couples and families.... not fun :(

Any suggestions? is there any fun/young Resort in Ko Phangan?

Thanks!!! :)

Most places in and around Had Rin. You won't find many couple or families around Had Rin, it is the party play, where folks to to meet new people and have lots of fun!

Guess it depends on how much your budget is, in Thai Baht so we all understand it.

Hi,

As suggested it depends on your budget, you are probably better off staying in guest houses or the like in the south of the island, especially around the time of the FMP.

Families don't tend to head to Haad Rin area and there are nice places near Haad Rin where flashpackers would tend to go, so you won't have any trouble meeting people. You could also look at Haad Yao which has a bit of a vibe if you didn't want Haad Rin, but quite honestly if you avoid the quieter areas in the north, you'll find something going on on most of the beaches.

Baan Tai and Baan Kai are also areas to look at that have some great resorts that will be full of like-minded people.

thanks a lot guys!... ive found a couple of hostels.. both of them have great reviews but... they're still hostels and may not be as clean as a regular hotel...

Have any of you heard about the following hostels? if so... are they clean/fun places to stay?

1. HardRoadCafe

2. TheBeachVillas Backpackers

The Beach Village is right on the beach, while Hard Road is on the island's main road ;)

Ban Kai Hostel is a very clean and new place. Ban Kai is a small town right before Haad Rin but there's not much going on at night so you would need motorbikes or taxi rides if you want to go shopping or partying.

I don't know TheBeachVillas. Hard Road is a big place but I never see many people over there... Have never been inside though.
