Loved this place. Ended up staying twice during my trip to Thailand. Was here for Christmas and New Year then came back in February. It's the kind of place you go to and never want to leave, it's got just the right balance of chill out and party. I stayed in the bungalows and the dorm rooms, both are lovely,...

Best Hostel in Thailand! It's quite a bit away from the center but that makes it even more interesting, especially if you're there on the weekend of the Full-Moon-Party and don't want to have 20'000 other people around you. The dorms are perfect, the bathrooms are nice, they have a Bar with lots of events going on, for example on...

I will say firstly we didn't speak to staff about any of our issues - mainly because we are incredibly lazy and couldn't be bothered with the hassle. The one person amongst us who wanted to complain was so angry that we had to lock her in a room to calm down before plying her with alcohol until she was...

If you're looking for a chilled out hostel out the way of the full moon area of Koh Phangan then Shiralea is perfect. We stayed in both a bungalow and a dorm, both were so nice and really good value for money, it's definitely the cheapest you'll find on the island too! Helpful staff, nice social area and good food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set on the stunning tropical island of Koh Pha Ngan - home to Thailand's famous 'full moon party' - Shiralea is a boutique resort designed to be a backpackers paradise. Welcome to a 'flashpacking' experience. Shiralea was built by a group of travellers who wanted a haven to return to. With a focus on 'good times' we created a friendly and vibrant atmosphere which puts our guests immediately at ease. Shiralea is a place where strangers become friends, we designed the resort with a social aspect which sets us apart, our guests love how they can do exactly what they want at Shiralea- whether that be a crazy night at the bar or a quiet one watching movies. Shiralea is the ideal spot to set up for a few days you'll never forget. Located 1 minutes walk from the beautiful Haad Yao beach. Our resort has all the creature comforts you could want and we cater for all budgets - hot showers, comfortable beds, wall-mounted fan or air conditioned bungalows, an ensuite in each bungalow and your own balcony with a hammock. In addition to our 30 bungalows, we have great facilities to keep you entertained, including a restaurant that offers delicious and well priced Thai and Western meals, a great bar, free wifi, large swimming pool with Jacuzzi and poolside bar, movie lounge, a games room with pool table and a massage hut. Shiralea has everything you need to enjoy your 'flashpacking' experience, but it's the memories that our guests treasure. Lose yourself in the fine art of doing nothing or celebrate balmy nights dancing into the wee hours with new friends. Our staff always welcome our guests with open arms, so all you need to do is bring a bag of basics and a smile. We invite you to join the fun. Book your stay with Shiralea. ... more   less
