Backpacker heaven

What we say: 3.5 stars

Star Beach is another ultra-laidback spot with a reggae vibe and basic rooms perched on a steep hillside directly over the beach. Rooms are painted sky blue and yellow on the outside, while inside they have hardwood floors, firm beds on unusually high wood stilted platforms and mosquito nets. All come with hot water bathrooms and balconies, with the pricier ones set high above with fantastic sunset views through a giant deer's ear tree that hangs over the whole place. Staff members are young and relaxed, and we met a few guests who had returned every year for the last five years to take advantage of the chilled out atmosphere. Note that Chang Bar is next door, so don't expect it to be quiet early in the evenings. Star Beach's neighbours -- Pen's, Ban Na and Chang Bar -- all offer similar backpacker digs at similar prices, so even if it's full, there's sure to be an available room around here somewhere.
