“STAY AWAY!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

There is actually not many positive things to say about this horrible place. The staff is useless and not interested in helping you at all - they couldn't even tell us where the hotel is located on a map and just laughed at us. In the room (we stayed in a deluxe) there was a cockroach and a lizard, it wasn't possible to close the door into the room properly, and there wasn't any hot water in the shower. The hotel is located far away from everything and it will become expensive for you to take a taxi every time you want to go out. Furthermore the food at the restaurant is way to expensive in relation to what you actually get and it is cold every second time. We were supposed to stay there 5 nights, which we already payed for, but we ended up staying only 2 nights and moved to another hotel. We have booked this hotel via the tourist information in Bangkok, and they told us that it was amazing but it absolutely wasn't!! This place could easily ruin your stay at Koh Phangan so stay away!!!

When getting off the boat having not booked a place to stay we decided to stay here, after a lot of pestering and bartering with the Thai sellers. We got an air con room with a double bed for a little less than priced advertised at the hostel.

The room was okay, little shabby (some DIY jobs needed) but generally quite clean. The location of the resort was in the middle of nowhere. 10 min walk to the nearest restaurant and that's pretty much it.

In the resort You can see the beach from the pool and also your hut. The pool is nice, but missing some floor tiles. The beach was alright, nothing special, no waves and very shallow, was pretty dirty if I'm honest.

Breakfast was a disappointment as it wasn't included in the deal. And to top it all off the food was expensive and came out cold.

Overall our stay was average (as we hadn't booked in advance). One night was enough.

My advise- barter your heart out if you are buying on the spot with the Thai ladies. As you could save a lot of money.

This place is a shame. The staff is very poor, there is nothing around. They won't help you or tey to get a lot of money out of your pocket. Though the beach is 5 seconded walking and the swimming pool pretty good don't come here unless you're looking for a place to sleep (or not) after the full moon party. The business is based on parties and taxis, the restaurant is too expensive for what it is an there is really nothing around. The room was clean but no mosquito net which can be a problem in this area. This hostel is gonna be proposed when you arrive at the pier by a very good guy and if you're in a rush or it's raining (like for me) you might get caught by this pretty chat.
Run!

Stayed here with a group of 7, divided into 2 shacks, 4 double beds. First impression it looked like a shanty town. Lots of dogs and cats wandering around and sleeping on the decks. No hot water at all. A trickle of water out of the shower and taps. Shower and sink were one!! The bathrooms were an outhouse attached to a thatched shack. The toilet and cistern leaked so water everywhere. The shack itself was grubby and in dire need of a DIY job. There was holes in the floors so bugs and cockroaches were crawling into the room. Lighting was very poor in room, no safe to store items in the room itself and had to be stored in a safe room in reception where you bought a padlock for the locker. the door had to locked via a padlock.the beds were uncomfortable and springy. There was no duvet covers only a grubby blanket. There was towels provided which would have seenbetterdays and needed a good bleach and wash themselves. Mosquitos were everywhere and went thru bottles of spray. A coconut fell thru a neighbours roof one night!! No air xonditioning only two wall fans which were so loud!!

On the positive side though. The pool was lovely. A bit dirty but lovely and nice sun loungers surrounding it. Located right beside a beach and has beautiful views. Sunloungers aren't comfortable but are bearable. The restaurant on site did lovely food and staff were friendly. A good pool area attached there so evenings can be nice and relaxed.

It's located a good 15 minute taxi ride away from haad rin and costs 100 baht. It's located away from the main road and is a short walk to the reception from main road.

For a short stay on a budget, defiantly recommend it. Highly recommend for any full moon parties. It was cheap minus the cheerful.

Stayed here for 1 night for the Half Moon Party. It was much better than I expected. The bar area overlooks the beach, perfect to have a bite to eat with a few beers at sunset. Staff were great! Only negative would be that my room didn't have a safe which I felt a little uncomfortable about.

Honestly I'm used to travel on a budget and looking for cheap hostel but I've seen a lot better than this one for the same price. Because they know people will come for the full moon, no efforts are made. The bungalows are really small and not that clean.
You can find better than this hostel for the same price.
