Property Description

More of a resort than a hostel. We may be more expensive than some hostels on Koh Phangan, but that's because we offer more!

What do we offer?
- 100m private beachfront! That's right, we are right on the beach! Not on the side of a busy dusty road.
- 24hr massive swimming pool
- Amazing party bar, right on the beach!
- Sports area including a pool table, ping pong table, sports equipment, and beach volleyball court
- Dorm and Private bungalows right on the sand
- More than just a hostel, a place for travellers to meet and experience tropical paradise, on a beautiful resort property converted for the 18+ market
- 24hr snacks, food, and drinks
- Beachfront restaurant with a large variety of asian and western cuisine
- Wide open spaces under a lush green canopy, where you can find quiet space to relax, or join in one of the many organised activities
- The wild parties of a party hostel, with the relaxation options of a retreat. Party when you want, chill when you want.

*Unlike many hotels around Koh Phangan we only require a 3-night minimum stay around the monthly full moon party instead of 5 or more. Chances our you'll be wanting to extend your stay with us after you arrive though. We do recommend getting here a few days before the Full Moon Party though because the other parties leading up to it are often even better than the main event.

Looking forward to you joining our family soon

*All photos are taken on our property, it really is that good!

Facilities include:
- Private bungalows for singles, friends, or couples
- 4 and 6 bed beach bungalow dorms
- 6 bed poolside bungalow dorms
- 4/6/8 bed main building dorms
- At reception we can help you book or hire: motorbikes, local tours, party tickets, SCUBA diving, taxis, boat trips, laundry & towels, cooking classes, kitesurfing, ferry tickets, and other adventures!

PLEASE NOTE: Some room descriptions are not fully available on the app. Basic Twin Private and Basic Double Bed Private are fan only rooms and the ensuite bathrooms do not have heated showers.

***Property Policies & Conditions:
1. Check-in Time: from 2pm, if you are early you can store your bags and enjoy the beach

8. We require a 1000 baht damages deposit on arrival per booking (Max 4 ppl per deposit)

Bookings of 3 or more people will be contacted a few weeks out from their stay to confirm their attendance, and in some cases full payment up front before arrival will be required. View House Rules

    Good times beach hostel on koh phagnan was a great place to stay. When we were originally looking at places to stay we were deciding between slumber party hostel and goodtimes beach hostel. I’m very glad we chose good times. The atmosphere is great, right on the beach with nice white sand. The 24 hour bar and pool are great too. They had several options for different events during the day with plenty to do. If you wanted some quiet time you could also lounge on the beach in the hammocks. Great!

    I love staying at Goodtime Beach Backpackers when I visit Koh Phangan! It’s such a friendly, fun vibe where you can chill out in a hammock by day, then party the night away. The staff are super helpful and take you out on day trips and adventures around Koh Phangan, and there is daily activists for people that want to get involved. Their Full Moon and Half Moon pre parties are also super fun and my favourite place to start the night off. See you guys for a joss shot soon!

    What an amazing hostel! It is right on the beach, which I loved. The atmosphere is amazing and I met so many cool people here. Goodtimes has the hostelvibe you have been looking for. The rooms are not the most modern but this doesn’t bother that much. I am sure Goodtime will give you a goodtime!

    Stayed here for the Full Moon party! Great location (right on the beech) and vibes! It was our first time travelling and staying in a hostel. The staff here are lovely and a 24hr pool / bar was a huge bonus! Deffo a party hostel but also plenty of places to chill if you fancy a break; 100% book to stay here!

    Some members of the staff have no chill. Very heavy party and drinking hostel, if you are into that vibe. Had members of the staff admit that they were just getting paid to get other people as f*** up as possible, which makes sense, but also puts a lot of pressure on people to drink, even if they don't want to. I was looking for a more chill vibe, then just a constant party vibe, but if you like to party, this place could be the place for you.

    Sadly I should say it was the worst ever bed you can imagine. The best thing about our room was being 2- 3 meters away from the sea. We regret that we didn't do our research before arriving on the island because this hostel is on the other side of the best part of the island (north beaches). Hostel's beach was nice and wide but the sea was always blurry and there were jellyfishes.
