Ban Phe’s older guesthouses and hotels should be shaking in their concrete boots after the 2016 opening of I Na Seaview Hostel, the only accommodation option in town that’s built directly onto the coastal docks.

The exceptionally spacious property offers a range of polished private rooms to go with dorms overlooking the sea.

Get past the warehouse-like entrance and you’ll find a huge common room with high ceilings, sofas and touches of Chinese-style decor. Better still is a spacious rooftop terrace furnished with wood tables and chairs for taking in the sea views. Spacious private rooms are found on both the lower and upper floors, each with soft beds on polished concrete floors, LCD TVs, free WiFi, desks and large, modern bathrooms. One room has only a single window facing the interior hall while others were bright, so you might ask to see a few before settling in. Though not exactly cosy, these are probably the comfiest rooms in town. Upstairs on the second floor with a partially open-air hall affording views of the fishing boats, a mixed eight-bed air-con dorm has a straightforward spread of bunks relying on shared hot-water bathrooms with stained-glass peacocks and dolphins adorning the doors.

Loud construction work was taking place on the docks directly behind the hostel when we passed through in March ‘16; we were told that a “floating market” would eventually take place there. The two staffers that we encountered spoke minimal English but seemed to have good attitudes. Within a three-minute walk of Ban Phe’s two busiest piers, the location is perfect if you just need a quick night’s sleep before shoving off to Ko Samet.
