As a result of the growing popularity of Koh Phangan and the development of the tourism on the Island, the hotels located are getting more and more high-end, more equipped (Air-Con, Hot Water, Swimming Pool) and more expensive as well.

Till few years ago it was easy to find a simple bungalow on the beach in Haad Rin or Baan Tai for 10-20$ per night.

The price of rooms even during the Fullmoon Party week was more reasonable.

Now in these days the average price range for hotels on the beach grew 3 times more, especially during the Full Moon Party week.

During this week it is hard to find a room in a beach resort all over the Island, not just in Haad Rin, the beach at the south east of Koh Phangan where the Fullmoon Party takes place, but all over the Island from Chaloklum and Thong Sala at the north through Thong Sala and Baan Tai on the South.

As a result of that there is a big grow in the amount of Dormitories. During the last 2 years the number of new Dorm in in Haad Rin village grew rapidly and this year there are many new dormitories open on the main road d between Baan Tai and Thong Sala.

The added value of staying in dormitories, to the ones who likes it, is being a part of a bigger group, meeting new friends to hang out with and to party together.

During the Fullmoon week the island is busy with Festivals running every night such as Jungle ExperienceVoodoo, Pirates Bar, Shiva Moon and Sramanora Waterfall party, to some of those there is a warm-up party at the Dorm. This event is a great opportunity to meet and hang out with new friends and paint each other with body painting which is a must outfit for these parties. It is possible to buy at these warm-up parties a combined ticket for transportation and entry to the event.

During the rest of the month the dormitories charge a very small price for a staying and usually not very occupied, so it could be a cheap and comfortable solution for staying. 

 

 

How to find a good dorm on Koh Phangan? 
5 usefull advices when choosing a dormitory on Koh Phangan.

1. Location! Location! Location!
See where you wish to stay, is it in Haad Rin? a crowded village and beach, full with young happy people. Or maybe Baan Tai or other beach where it is more quiet.
Price is also cheaper on Fullmoon week, out of Haad Rin.

2. Check the photos well! Especially the inside of the room, how crowded is it?, what are the beds quality, does it look clean?

3. Check at the Dorm description how many beds in 1 room and not less important what is the room size ? :)

4. How many showers per how many beds?

5. Check the reviews, but remember to eliminate the 3 best ones (friends of the owner) and the 3 worst ones (Spiteful petty people) :) .

Good Luck!
