All I can say is that it was a dream. So relaxed complete with two chilled out bars (one pool bar and one cafe/restaurant bar). You can get as involved or as distance as you want from everyone and the activities. Super clean and the hostel beds are so comfortable. Definitely recommend.

I can't say more good things about this hostel. The rooms are clean, with working ac, security is great with a very large locker at the end of each bed, towels are provided, showers are hot, and the pool is refreshing.

Absolutely brilliant hostel, party place. Staff are awesome & really make the place come alive! Good food, great atmosphere, very clean, decent beds. WiFi is poor - probably the only low point. Would definitely return to Shiralea :)

This was the best place we stayed when travelling in Asia. It was also by far the cheapest. It was amazing. When we pulled up at reception I thought we were at the wrong place it looked too nice.

I wonder why Shiralea calls itself a 'backpackers' resort, which really doesn't do it justice. This a fantastic place to hang up even your fancy suitcase and soak up the good vibes of Haad Yao. Our bungalow was super clean, had two large double beds and a/c. The pool is awesome and the bar is a hotspot of good fun...

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
