Not even a Hostel, A Clinic Room With Beds. But Allows Bookings less than a week long”

Only advantage (and the reason we booked this) was that very few places in Koh Phangan (particularly the ones near Haad Rin) allow bookings of less than a week. And we stayed in Koh Phangan only for 2 nights to celebrate the New Year's. This is not a Hostel - its a Clinic's room which has opportunistically been converted into a hostel during the peak tourist season. There was no space within the room and the Bunk Beds were very close to each other. Also, the washrooms were very basic and poor. Location was very nice though, 1min walk to the Haad Rin and also right amidst the main market with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Would not recommend Booking unless you also want to stay for 1/2 nights and need to use the room only for sleeping.

Fine bed in the center of the party”

Cleanness, location, service

It was a bit hard to find Hwan, cause Agoda's internet map is wrong. Very nice owner, clean bed cloths, clean bathroom but without water-heater (doesn't matter in +30). Located in the center of Haad Rin next to the Full moon beach and the best bar SandCastle. But that's why it's always loud music). For young and active backpackers
