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.

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

    Everything about Goodtime was amazing. The beach, the pool, the staff, the vibe, the dogs. I already plan on coming back for a longer stay after Koh Tao. The only slightly negative thing was that you couldn't walk directly into the ocean for actual swimming as they have a huge sand bar in front of their beach so it's a bit of a walk to get to the deep part.

    Couldn’t have asked for a better hostel. I was supposed to stay here for three nights but ended up extending for just a little bit longer. The staff, which I can basically call family now, has been amazing to me, thank you Sarah, Vlado, Jade, Tommy, and Chai. The true gem of the hostel though was Caraline, so funny and awesome, trying to take her home to keep as a pet. Keep my bungalow available for me, I’ll be back before you know it! I’ll miss you guys!

    If you’re coming to Koh Phangan this is definitely the place to stay! It’s location, vibes, and staff were all great. This is also the perfect place to meet people as there is always something going on at the bar or pool. Booked for 3 nights stayed for a week! Couldn’t be more pleased with my stay! Thanks goodtime!

    Absolutely adored this hostel. Booked for 3 nights stayed for over 2 weeks. The staff makes everyone feel right at home. Sarah, Jade, Tommy, Vlado, Chai, Paow were all awesome and made my time the best. Whether you want to chill in the hammocks or by the pool or party at the bar or beer pong table this hostel literally has it all. I can’t wait to come back to my goodtimes family. Also, Caraline throws the best pool parties. Ask her to play the famous pool game, find the cup, so fun!

    Atmosphere at the hostel is the best I’ve come across. Great bunch of people, both staff and long stay guests, who are very welcoming and great at getting people involved for nights out. Location is really good on the beach and not far from the pier. The dorm bungalows/shacks are good considering where you are on the beach. The pool area is great, as is the drinks menu. Would highly recommend.

    We loved Goodtime. It’s located right on the beach. We had a bungalow on the sea front which was amazing! Great facilities, a pool, volleyball, hammocks, massage, ping pong, pool table, beer pong and a 24 hour bar. The staff are great too, very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend!

    I loved this place, one of my favourite locations for a hostel to date and really cool people who work there made it a very social place where you just feel at home! The only thing that let the place down was the showers and beds. But a price to pay for such a nice location

    Did the trick as a place to crash between parties. Good location and super friendly staff

    Only stayed here for one night as we had to catch the ferry early in the morning. It’s on the beach and has a nice pool which was the main reason we chose to stay here. The hammocks were awesome to chill out in. Food was good and staff was friendly. Be aware that this is a party hostel, so it is likely even when the Full Moon party isn’t going on there will be loud music playing until late and you will probably be woken up at 3am by people coming back to the dorm!
