If you don’t mind sleepy surrounds and a five-minute walk to the beach, the surfer-style Pajamas is one of the coolest and comfiest hostels we’ve come across on any Thai island.

Approachable staffers serve fresh coffee and breakfast to wooden tables in an airy cafe tapering into an open-sided common lounge featuring a billiards table, punching bag, widescreen TV, WiFi, sofas, ukuleles, games and books. Just beyond the lounge stretches a good-size swimming pool rimmed by lounge chairs and beanbags, with a spiral staircase leading up to a loft.

A white-and-blue palette extends into eight-bed dorm rooms available in mixed gender or women only and relying on a clean and extensive set of shared hot-water bathrooms. Set lengthwise along the sides of narrow rooms, each bunk stays private thanks to curtains and dividing walls and comes with soft linens on thick mattress plus reading lamp, electrical outlet and locker.

In a separate building, Pajamas’ private rooms are possibly the most luxurious we’ve seen out of hundreds of hostels in Thailand. Featuring brushed concrete and lightwood accents as the lounge, these slick digs bag you floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening to pool-view terraces along with LCD TVs, DVD players, X Box 360s, safes, kettles, fridges and ensuite bathrooms.

The Thai manager who showed us around was patient and helpful, and she seemed rightfully proud to show off the hostel. A positive-minded staff offering solid advice and assistance for making the most of Ko Chang is the cherry atop a hostel with excellent facilities, accommodation and design. Having grown up on Ko Chang, the owner is a daughter of the family that owns the terrific Nong Bua Seafood Restaurant, which is a treat to have located next door.

Not much else is found in the immediate vicinity apart from the relaxing Chai Chet Beach and its family-oriented resorts—look elsewhere if a social scene outside of your hostel is important to you. The location does make a convenient base for exploring the west coast.

Those seeking a lively scene may want to opt for Beach Jungle or one of the many cheap guesthouses down in Lonely Beach. If you like the Khlong Prao area but can’t afford Pajamas, Habitat Hostel is a more straightforward option with air-con dorms for around 400 baht in a large concrete building at the far end of the Coconut Plaza. There’s also Gala House, a cheaper and more ragtag hostel hidden atop coastal boulders in the far southern corner of Khlong Prao Bay.
