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.
3. Payment: Cash (THB) only upon arrival.
4. Cancellation Policy: Up to 7 days advance notice before the arrival date is required.
5. Age Restriction: The minimum age to enter the property is 18 years old.
6. Reception Hours: Main reception (Bikes, tours, ferries etc) 9am to 7pm. Front desk assistance 24hrs.
7. The property including the bar and pool is open to the public at the discretion of management. Outside visitors are not allowed in the hostel rooms, they are for customers only.
8. We require a 1000 baht damages deposit on arrival per booking (Max 4 ppl per deposit)


NOTE: We do not automatically accept bookings of 3 or more people as no shows of this size, especially over full moon period, often results in guests who wanted to extend not being able to when space actually existed. 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

    Incredible!! Best hostel I have ever stayed at! Had such a good laugh all day every day. Valdo is the best barman I’ve ever come across. Mandi is incredibly kind and will include you in everything. ALL the staff are VERY welcoming and friendly. They go above and beyond in every way possible to make sure you have an amazing time here. The rooms are very clean and comfy also. This hostel is perfect for solo travellers, you will meet so many friends!

    We originally stayed at good time hostel for 2 nights but extended a further 3 nights!! As we loved it there that much!! The hostel always have new deals up as we got our 3rd night free and they had half price on Thai food. Good time hostel love to party but also love to relax which is great to have the best of both. The staff are so welcoming and very helpful if you have any questions. The only thing I will say is that the bunk beds are sooooo squeaky when your trying to sleep.

    Couldn’t ask for a better experience at Goodtimes. Staff and the GM were all awesome and super friendly. Met a load of cool people. Location is superb as it is right on the beach and a supermarket just down the road. Just general awesome vibes. Highly recommend.

    Amazing location, however, if you are placed in the older style beach huts there are gaps in the floorboards meaning that your room becomes a haven for mosquitoes. The atmosphere is great, facilities for socialising are fantastic and the pool is good value for money. When checking out, we discovered that the staff had given my passport to a girl with the same name as me and so this is obviously not good, luckily it’s sorted but resulted in a lot of unnecessary stress, Tommy was the most helpful!

    Goodtime hostel is a great place to stay its right on the beach, quieter than Slumber party which is in walking distance if you want to go nuts, private room didn't have air con but the turbine sized fan did a pretty good job. What made it exceptional was the staff, Robbie made everyone feel welcome was full of great information, in the run up to the full moon party he covered himself in glitter, looking like dived into a pool of lush bath bombs ❤️ Emitting a joyous infectious auroa of fun.

    I have never stayed in a hostel before where they played music really loudly until 5am. This was completely unfair as I did not sleep at all and I had a very early ferry. Not the cleanest of hostels, bed not very comfy either. Only a good hostel if all you are looking for is a place to stay for a full moon party, that is it.
