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
2. Check-out Time: until 11:00am.

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

    One of the best hostels I stayed at during my whole trip in SE Asia. Literally right on the beach, great pool (open 24 hours!), and yummy cheap food and drinks. The staff is great as well and do a really good job of getting people involved in various games and activities every night, which as a solo traveler was really nice. Really can’t recommend Goodtime enough!

    This is a great party hostel. Stayed here for 4 days ahead of the full moon party. Lots of events organized through the hostel and a great 24 hour bar and pool on site.

    My friend and I booked another night at reception. Later realised the website price was about $5 lower than we paid. They eventually refunded me the difference but told my friend to wait 20min. Then they changed the price on website and said they now wouldn’t refund him the difference! Staff (not all, shoutout Scottish girl) are rude and unhelpful. Finally the manager did refund him as well. Room flooded due to a blocked drain; my stuff got soaked. And no hint of an apology. Terrible.
