This has to be the greatest place I've stayed at in Thailand. The dorms are comfortable and clean. The amenities are all good. The beach is 30 seconds away and amazing.

I stayed in the dorms for three days and I was very happy with my stay. The room/bed was clean and each bed was equipped with a separate locker (big enough for a huge backpack), curtains for privacy and a towel. There was a well functioning A/C in each room as well. The bathroom was clean and there was hot...

Came here on the basis of good reviews on TripAdvisor. Firstly, the hostel is very clean which is a plus and they have hot showers. Annoyingly, this was the first hostel in 3 months of travel where the Wi-Fi was completely nonfunctional in the rooms. It just did not work. I felt the location as a solo traveller was poor...

The place is just what you need in order to have a good time. It is close to a good beach, has good motorbike parking, good swimming pool, restaurant and a pool table.

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
