The Beach Village Backpackers
Reviewed 23 August 2013

Decent location, right on the beach, really nice clean pool. 20 man dorm was clean and what we expected. Spent 5 nights here across full moon and would recommend. Has a decent pool party on one of the nights. The owner looks like chris moyles and can arrange taxis for you wherever you want to go.

Spent a week here across Full Moon and Thai New Year last year. What a place!! Awesome, knowledgeable & friendly staff, great swimming pool (clean!) and generally an awesome place to hang out at.

The rooms were clean, good value for money and the craziness of Haad Rin is just a short ride across the island. But why would you ever want to leave...?

Stayed during full moon for 5 nights, I was in the 26 mixed dorm which was so good, I thought it would be the complete opposite but I wouldn't have changed rooms, you meet so many people and it's such a laugh, even the lack of sleep! The food in the bar is really good and pretty decent value for money, get the Chili con carni or the Baguettes!!
location is perfect right on the beach, it's a bit far from haad rin but the hotel sort out taxis to and from full moon for a really good price so that isn't a problem! loads of changes are happening due to the new owners jack and Peter who honestly the nicest people you'll meet made us feel so welcomed!
all in all I had no problems and had the most amazing time there and would most definitely return!
hopefully see you next year jack and Peter, look forward to seeing the changes!! - Jamie

Stayed here for the duration of the full moon party, In my opinion it is the place to be on the Island, Nice vibe around the place and away from the madness. The beach Village layout is amazing, A cool comfortable bar/restaurant/chillout area. The pool is right on the beach with a DJ booth and bar right beside it. The tunes are top quality and not the typical commercial stuff you hear at most places on the Island. The food menu has a wide range of options available with good prices to match, The western food is the quality you would expect from home unlike many many places In Thailand.
Hire a scooter while you are here its a great way to get around during the day, Go and discover the many beautiful beaches on the island and make sure you make it back to the resort for a few sundowners with like minded individuals. Take a 50-100 baht taxi with your new pals to the party of the night and I guarantee good times will be had! Thanks for an amazing time, Will be back for sure!

Room Tip: Bungalows by the pool look like the pick of the bunch! Next time I will book one of these for sure!

I was at the beach village for over 2 weeks which meant that I was there for both the half moon and the fullmoon party. The island was not so busy around the half moon as I'm told is usual in most months, however the resort still put on a show for us with an excellent pool party, great DJs and brilliant bar staff. The fullmoon was a lot more busy and AMAZING FUN!! The staff put on a fire show, the DJ was the best I have heard since I had been travelling and I ended up getting the latest taxi I could to the fullmoon because I didn't want to leave.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were good for the price you pay and the minor problems they did have I was told would be fixed by the next fullmoon now the resort is under new management and are in the process off renovating the whole place.
I am fortunate enough to be coming back to koh phangan in a few months and I am excited to see what they have done with the place.
Thank you guys.xxx

We went for the half moon party and were told it was going to be super busy and they were having a pre-party for half moon where everyone came to the hotel for drinks and a bit of a party round the pool and at the beach club. The place was dead for days and it came to the day of half moon and there was still noone around. It got to 8 o'clock and there was noone there so we went to Haad Rin for something to do and were told the party started at the hotel at about 11. We went back and the place was pitch black and dead. The room itself was basic but not that cheap. It was a bungalow looking over the pool and the beach which was a great view. The food was ok. The lounge room was comfy with a big screen with films on. The pool and beach bar and beach club could have been amazing if there were people there. It might have been so quiet because people were saving themselves for full moon but either way the place lacked an atmosphere. It was a bit out of the way and you need to get taxi's everywhere but you can get them from the resort. Might stay again if i new it was going to be busier.

Goid value for money and very lively! Good for full moon and the time leading up to it. Pool is very good and it's right near the beach. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast isn't great but the food in general is very good. Would reccomend to anyone coming to koh phangan.
