I really liked my stay af asia blue. There is usually a lot of volunteers at a time which makes it really fun and those people become your family. Stephanie is nice and is trying to make everyone feel satysfied with their tasks and working hours. There may be a lack of communication sometimes between volunteers and staff but I think this is what happens when there is a lot of people working.
In general Asia blue is a great place where you can relax or party, you can always find something to suit you.

At first I was really enjoying working at the hostel, but after some situations I went through and after noticing the disorganization that was the place, practically the same food every day (and was not always enough for everyone), the volunteers hostel the bathroom had yellow water. I was totally unmotivated to work there.
Basically they only have volunteers and expect them to do everything (which in my social and economic point of view does not help the local economy, since they don't offer job opportunities). Besides I didn't feel any effort on the part of the hostel to make us feel good

I stayed in Asia Blue for only two weeks, and I left there with a family. The other volunteers are the best part about this place, they create and environment of fun and friendship that makes you forget about the bad part of Asia blue like how they manage the place and the volunteer hostel... but besides this, you’ll make friends for life and get to live in a beautiful island

A beautiful hostel on the beach with a good crew of staff and nice perks like a gym and two meals. Some things to be aware of going into it (this was our experience)...You only get meals on days you work- which is fine as long as you know beforehand. You won’t necessarily work in the area you apply for. Our dorm had beds pretty much as hard as the ground but otherwise was fine and others were in a nice dorm. :) It is not super organized, but is overall very chill and easy to work out everything. We would stay again! miss you guys

koh phangan is an amazing island. the hostel is well located, about 15 min from the pier, but if youu want to explore the island you'll need to rent a moto, they have special price for volunteers. The volunteers (and some guests) are the best part of it. The work is fair, you work next to the beach and you can use their facilities like swimming pool and gym at any time. Important: you only get food the day you work, so be prepared for that.
