    Most unpleasant hostel experience ”

    I was a solo traveler and visited the island for halfmoon party and booked 3 nights at Phanganist as it was highly recommend at Agoda. Arrived there around 19:00 and figured this was a place for very young backpackers who wanted to find stuff and get stoned! OFC not inside the hostel and there was a sign all over saying NO DRUG policy at the hostel. Though it was not right crowd for me and I checked out the next day. The location is also far from beach and bars. It’s middle of a road with few limited food options nearby. To get anywhere you either should ride a scooter or get a taxi. Would definitely not go back there!

    I spent 3 nights in Phanganist and I loved it ! I am not the typical party person who enjoys party hostel usually but this one was perfect as it offers a quiet place to sleep and hang out by the pool as well as parties and fun times between 7pm and 12am. The staff was very helpful and fun to be around. I met plenty of amazing people during my stay and really enjoyed everything. Perfect for solo travelers trying to meet people and have fun :)

    Great hostel to get to know others”

    I stayed two days at this hostel and it was really good. The people are friendly and help you. The only things I didn't like about it was the distance to the town, but you can rent a motorcycle, and the room was dirty on the floor and not nice. Moreover, I booked a female dorm but there was a guy sleeping with us. Also can you hear the sounds of everyone outside. If you look for a good hostel to get to know others, if you want Party, then go to this hostel! P. S. The food and chill out area was great

    Great hostel. Really social! ”

    Had a great time here. I only had a short time on Koh Phangan and staying at the Phanganist was a smart decision as I joined the day tour and saw quite a lot of nice places on the island and had great fun with the guys from the hostel. Natu and CK had loads of advice on what to do on the island and we're a great help along with the other staff from reception who helped sort out a taxi to the boat for me while I was a bit worse for wear on the morning and running late! Hope to return to this place in the future!

    Bike rental with their business partner ”

    The good thing of phanganist is they will help you to call the bike rental company. And the bike rental keeps your passport during your rental. Think twice before getting it because they are really good at finding the lines and scratches on bike. Otherwise, you must take a video of the bike condition before renting it. The name of bike rental company is PCA. I don’t wish to highlight here but it is really bad. They said, you signed rental contract and the prices of parts are clearly stated there. You must pay no matter we replace the parts or not. It is totally a scam!
