Echo beach is a great hostel, it's in a good location with easy access to all the parties. It has a lovey bar and chill out area. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The beds are very comfy. Could be a little cleaner. Also they have a great cinema room and show movies every night so its a good place to hang if you don't want to party

Echo beach is defiantly the best hostel I have stayed in in Asia! The location is brilliant as its quiet in the day but all the parties are easily accessible. There is a private beach and lounge which is great for meeting people, chilling in the day and drinking at night with their pre parties! It's also been renovated since I arrived with nice showers and movies on every night! The staff were amazing and made my stay in koh phangan brilliant. Rooms are great value compared to the rest of phangan. I would whole heartedly recommend this hostel to anyone!

This hostel was great for Koh Phanagan. It's a great party hostel, there's a bar in the hostel and they organize rides to the different island parties and let you know what's going on. The staff is super friendly and really helpful. There's free breakfast and cheap dinners, although they're not that great. The atmosphere is great for the island because it's close to beaches and it's a good party place. When we were there the water kept getting shut off cause there were loads of people staying at the hostel. But there's a public pool next door with showers that were available.

Although the air con wasn't great and the showers hardly worked, this place was really good fun. Full of backpackers, the bar downstairs is a great way to meet people before going to the Full Moon, or any other parties. The hostel can arrange taxis for you to get to these, and the owner can also help you to arrange boat transfers between the islands. The hostel overlooks the beach and is about a 10 minute walk to the nearest shops (7/11).

This is honestly the best hostel I have stayed at. The staff really look after you and make you feel at home. Anything you need they're sure to help you out. They're breakfast lunch and dinners are delicious and they're bar serves some good cocktails (they also have cider!). The whole amtomosphere of the place is very welcoming and homey. I couldn't say a bad thing about this place! Definatly stay at echo backpackers if your coming to koh phangnan! Thanks heaps for the amazing time!

A new hostel, with friendly staff, great atmosphere, amazing music... good value for money, clean and the perfect place to chill or party or make friends or all. I went there for 3 days, stayed a week.

Room Tip: the point is to get out of your room and hang at the common area
