Right on the beach at a bargain price, full of funny people in their cosy lounge area...this place is excellent! Echo rooms are simple, and the bathrooms are shared, but the price is attractive, and the beachfront location has a view of Koh Samui in the distance and unbelievable sunsets! There is a restaurant and bar there, and the hostel is well known for its parties, where guests from other places even come to have an unforgettable evening. As you can imagine, the beds sell out quickly here during The Fullmoon Party week, so make sure to book in advance!
This hostel is one of a kind. It is built entirely out of shipping containers! Located right on the main road, it is straightforward to get a taxi anywhere from here. It’s also great fun to watch the world driving by as you enjoy lounging by the pool in their cosy garden atmosphere. As a bonus, they provide a complimentary breakfast to get you going!
Phangan Area is very special because it doubles as a sports complex! Not only is there the usual (and necessary since you are, after all, coming to paradise island) swimming pool, but there’s also football courts, volleyball nets, tennis, an outdoor gym with machines and free weights, and much more. It’s super easy to make new friends playing games, and the hostel is very good at bringing guests together through sports activities and stellar communal spaces.
The vibe here is young, active and super fun! Aside from getting physically fit, the nightlife is excellent here too. Their beer pong tournaments are famous, and winners get free drinks! With 250 beds here, you can rest assured that staying here will be a very social and interactive experience.
Last but not least, the location is 100 meters from the beach and only 5 minutes drive to the walking street market and the night food market at the main pier.
Jungle Gym and Eco Lodge is a fantastic hostel for flashpackers. It is super stylish with its luxury resort feel, minus the price tag! The place has amenities, including unlimited access to the lodge pool and fitness centre, intimate dorms with A/C, and ensuite bathrooms...not to mention the breathtaking views of Haad Rin Beach.
A luscious jungle surrounds this unique backpackers resort. The refreshing deep swimming pool is set in this gorgeous natural environment. The dorms are comfortable with privacy curtains on the beds and lockers for each guest to store their backpacks and belongings. The bathrooms are shared, but they are spacious and cleaned frequently. The overall vibe of the place is super chill, and the owners are attentive to the customers making you feel entirely at home.
