          Owned by a Canadian guy named Troy so it was refreshing to have that. Staff is very friendly and easy to chat with. Locations great! I'm staying for a week.

          This hostel is all geared up for people ready to party at the Half and Full Moon parties. A little pricey compared to other hostels but the atmosphere is pretty good as is the food and staff. Free neon panit to get you party ready!!

          It's Charles. The trip to Koh Phanghan was pretty easy. A minibus picked us up at our hotel and brought us to the pier. We then took a ferry to the next island. It took us about 2.5 hours. The pier on Koh Samui is very close to the airport so we were able to see a few planes really low in the sky as they were arriving or departing. That was pretty cool.

          ... spotted another Black Tip Reef SHARK! We both immediately got excited, gave the signal and chased this one as well. Melinda did well to get a photo of it as it was moving and we were swimming hard to keep up with it! It was trying to get away from us (unlike the first one) and it got shallower and closer to the beach (within 100m), changing direction regularly and in only 1m depth of water! Was way cool!

          So we had both chased sharks for the day, which was ...

Especially the hill... This hill was one of those that seems endless, endless and steep! After we finally reached the jumping point we had a few attempts on 3,9 metres, with one group member attempting the 12! Safe to say that wasnt me! ...

Getting to my hostel, it was just was I imagined it to be. Located right in the thick of the nightlife, friendly backpacker faces, and lots of things to do around. After meeting everyone in the hostel, wasting no time, we all arranged to go out and mark our territory and christen the ...
