From the moment I walked in the door I was made to feel welcome. Golf the hostel owner was an absolute legend, knew everyone staying in the hostel by name and arranged a number of activities such as trips to the beach and BBQs without asking for anything back in return. The hostel itself is well located away from the busy areas but with a shop and restaurant next door and ATMs within a short walk. From the hostel it is possible to get a taxi pretty much anywhere on the island for around 100THB. Facilities are great, there is a lounge area with TV with sports and movie channels as well as a good selections of films and series. There is also a kitchen if you fancy cooking your own food rather than eating out or getting takeaway. The hostel was kept nice and clean all throughout the stay. If I am ever back on Phangan, I know where I will be staying for sure.
