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

    Goodtime Beach Backpackers is a great hostel to stay at and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for great accommodation on Koh Phangan. The staff are super friendly and welcoming and were really helpful recommending beaches, waterfalls, shops, restaurants etc to explore. Their swimming pool and beach side location is an added bonus and the accommodation (both dorms and private huts) were clean and comfy. The pub quiz was entertaining and a great way to meet new people.

    Great place to stay! I was here during the end of the covid panic and it was still great! The manager and all staff were still in great moods, did whatever they could for all the guests and always kept us busy with plenty of activities and advice when needed. Definitely recommend!!

    I am a long term traveller and I have stayed here many times. This is honestly the best hostel i have stayed in while on my travels, everything about this place is amazing, the location, the staff, drinks, food. Plenty of daily activities and drink promotions on offer too. Any adventure activity can be arranged by the super friendly staff. Also if you attend a full or half moon party this is the place to stay, it's an amazing amount of fun and definitely worth staying here.

    Had the most amazing stay at Goodtime when all the covid stuff was going down. Staying here was a perfect end to my trip as it felt like a normal hostel environment. Had so much fun, the staff were lovely and very friendly, dorms are nice and clean, and the location is just beautiful. Will definitely be coming back here in the future! Recommend the Bangers and Mash at the restaurant, it’s amazing!
