Haad Thong Lang Beach
Wat Khao Tham
Eh, the receptionist, was absolutely fantastic! She was so warm and welcoming when I arrived to check in for one night for the Full Moon Party in August 2017. She let me print a ticket and ensured that I had transportation arranged to get to and from Haad Rin Beach. I left very early the next morning and did nit receive my 500 Baht key deposit back, but she arranged to have the deposit refunded to me via PayPal. I was so impressed with her responsiveness as she could have just ignored my request. Great service! The bed was a bit too hard. And the bathrooms could have some amenities in them like shampoo and conditioner. Also, the water in the showers was not hot enough. Those are my only complaints.
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.
