This large dorm had freshly opened just one week before on our visit in August 2014, but we expect it will soon be a hit given its central location along Ton Sai beach where cheap accommodation is hard to find.

Photo of Chao Koh Dorm Room
Found on the top floor of a shophouse operated by the long-running Chao Koh resort group (its massage centre is downstairs), the dorm consists of two large air-con rooms, each with 20-some bunk beds and shared bathrooms. Some bathrooms have hot-water showers. The room windows are tiny but if you manage to grab a bunk near a window you’ll be treated to good views of the beach and bay. The beach is found just across the footpath, though this section of it isn’t great for swimming with all the longtails moored here. WiFi and lockers are included, and the air-con is on 24/7. Given that it was new, everything was looking tidy and sparkling. It was near-empty on our visit, so we’ll have to check back to see how clean it remains once 40 or more backpackers have moved in. Noise could be a problem at night with Carlito’s bar nearby.
