Goodtime Beach Hostel

Goodtime Beach Hostel

Beachside bunks

More on Ko Tao

A newish venture managed by the Goodtime Adventures crew, this small hostel will hit the spot for young travellers looking to stay on the beach and near the nightlife.

Travelfish says:

There are two dorm rooms, both mixed gender and both with eight bunks that each come with personal reading lamp, outlet and locker. Both rooms are clean and quite spacious for a hostel – interiors even come with a sofa and coffee table along with wide windows, air-con and tile floors. Shared hot-water bathrooms are attached to the dorms.

While the standard dorm room is fine, we suggest splashing out for the deluxe, which bags you a shared fridge and a connected deck that shoots out over the beach. A few private rooms are also available with ceiling fans in addition to air-con and some swirling Buddhist-inspired art.

While we liked the scene and dorms a bit better at Indie Hostel in Sairee village, Goodtime boasts the beachfront location and is superior to, thought pricier than, any hostel in Mae Haad. Pop into the neighbouring Good Time Adventures main office if no one is at reception at the hostel – it’s all run by an enthusiastic team of expats, including at least a few Americans.
