This place has so much potential, it's in a great location right on a beautiful beach but is let down by a few easily fixed things. Our 6 bed dorm (and bathroom) wasn't cleaned once during our 5 night stay, with no toilet paper and a blocked shower. The reception/bar opens after 9am and closes at 8pm which meant we couldn't get an early boat as we couldn't check out and get our passports back. The bar did stay open on the full moon with free paint which was really fun!

Very loud all day long and really dirty rooms, showered hardly worked. Good vibes otherwise

A group of us stayed here over the full moon period. The location is perfect and the staff were great. The only thing that let this down was that the rooms were not cleaned during our weeks stay and also we had a shared bathroom which after the first night was unusable so we had to go to the communal area- this wasn't a problem but would of been nice for the allocated bathroom to be cleaned! The lockers provided aren't great as they have a key which actually opens all of them so not secure

Really nice to hang out at. Hammocks on the beach, lovely staff, nice enough dorm rooms (I was in the one with about 30 beds), good aircon, lockers and they give you a towel to use while you're there which is not very common for a hostel. Overall really good. A fair way from full moon party but much nicer to stay here and get a mini bus or tuk tuk with a few other people to the party.

Im not sure how this place has such a high rating. I was underwhelmed. The hostel is in a great location - on the beach in ban thai but it also needs work. The restaurant is expensive, very slow and you often dont get what you ordered. The bar also takes a good 20 minutes to get your drink ready. Dorms are never swept out and its lacking atmosphere - we went to party at a nearby hostel (ringside) because this place was so lackluster even though it was fullmoon. My advice: go elsewhere.

Directly on the beach, hammocks create an awesome relaxation atmosphere. Very clean and awesome staff!! BELLA IS THE BEST!! The French guy plays great tunes and is genuine as well!!

There were 2 cockroaches in our bathroom when we arrived and there was no toilet paper. Staff was extremely inattentive and sometimes rude. When we first asked for a taxi pass to and from the full moon party, we were told that there were no more passes. When another member of our party asked again, suddenly there were passes. RE: the taxi passes, they were a complete rip off. When we tried to use them to return from the full moon party, there was no taxi or shuttle available.

@ Beach Bed & Bar was one of the best hostels I have stayed so far. The location is perfect, staff absolutely great, friendly and helpful. Especially Bella, the manager who works as a receptionist made our stay very memorable and fun! Will definitely come back at some point ! Lenka, Cinthya, Catalina & Raquel (Melbourne, Australia)

I had a blast staying here during full moon party. The staff is really great and will have fun with you. They keep the whole place clean but I wish they would sweep the sand out of the rooms daily! I really got sick of having dirty feet and a paste-like shower floor. I'm going to miss everyone I met there!

Really nice hostel, directly on a lovely beach with a beautiful sunset. People are really nice, beds are good. One misunderstanding with the staff but we worked it out in a good way so no complaints about that. The only point was that I've stayed there for 5 nights and I didn't see any cleaning staff. Are room was covered up with sand and the trash bin was over over full. I asked the staff if they could clean the room but I guess they forgot.

Good laundry service, great atmosphere and location directly at the beach. Had to share the bathroom with 14 people so that wasn't so clean but the people were great! good aircon in the rooms.

The outside part with the bar by the beach and hammocks is just perfect. I’ve stayed in a 4 bed room and it could have some improvements: big lockers for the backpacks to improve the security, more stable beds and curtains in the shower would help. Cleanness in the room could be better, when I got there the room was messy already and after two days it stayed the same. Location is in between Jungle Party (10 min by car) and Full Moon (20 min by car). The staff were nice.

A few of us stayed here for 3 days (one being for the full moon party). This was one of our favourite hostels during our trip to Thailand! The staff were soo friendly and so fun to hang out with! The rooms were very clean, with AC. The vibe was amazing, as the hostel had its own restaurant and bar right on the beach. It was close enough to everything- approx. 10min taxi ride to the jungle party, and 20min taxi ride to full moon. I HIGHLY recommend staying here:)

Stayed 3 nights around the full moon party. Hostel was clean and accommodating apart from slightly hard beds. Loved the hammocks on the beach- chilled atmosphere at day, lively at night but not too loud- would definitely stay here again.

Hostel was great, the view from our bedroom was absolutely breathtaking. It took us a bit to find the place but it is literally on the beach! Too bad it rained all the time (September visit). It is a wonderful place though. Staff could be a little more helpful and it would be nice if there was soap or something in the bathroom but overall a great hostel! Nice atmosphere, beach, bed, bar-what more would you want ? :)

Great location for getting to full moon and jungle parties. Also, right on the beach with a great atmosphere!

Great place to stay if you want to party! Beach is nice to look at, but not really swimmable as it's quite shallow and tide was out for most of the day while I was there. Place was quite busy leading up to the Full Moon Party (which is a Must Go if you're on the island during one), but cleared out and quieted down right after. Bunk beds were very unstable, and would recommend trying to get there several days prior to the big party to lock down a lower bunk!

Wifi on full moon is very bad. But it is a lovely place to meet people and relax by the sea, got lots of hammocks to chill out in. Plus Big C supermarket is just up the street.
