The Beach Village Backpackers
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Stayed here for 5 days and the atmosphere here is incredible. It's a resort with everything you need and the staff are great. Jack one of the managers sorted out loads of birthday gifts for my best friend and put balloons and presents in our room whilst we were out to suprise her! They didn't need to do this and was so lovely of them. Would recommend staying here 100 times over. Great pool and food also!!

Can even call that a hostel. Its more like a resort. They have everything you need. Its close to the ferry terminal, right across the street from a grocery store and restaurants.
But if you dont feel like leaving the property, because the awesome swimming pool ocean front, not a problem they have a restaurant with a lot of options and a bar open all day long. Tiki bar at the pool go until late serving drinks and playing tunes, perfect spot to hang out before heading to the full moon party or any other party in Phangan.
The staff is super friendly and they would do anything to make you stay more pleasant.
Dorms were pretty good, super good and big bunk beds, never slept in a bunk bed that good. The shower in my room was a problem just cuz you have to hold the hose, but thats not the end of the world. Besides they still doing some work there and pretty sure they will fix it pretty soon.
If you go to Koh Phangan you have to stay at the beach village!!!

We're glad you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the pool and bar facilities we provide. As you say we are still fixing issues and constantly making improvements, so we appreciate your positive feedback. Hopefully we will see you again soon for another Full Moon, and you won't have to hold your shower!

I came to Beach Village to stay a few days and ended up staying over 2 weeks. I was travelling alone and staying in a bungalow and found it easy to meet people at the pool. The vibes at this place are amazing. Jack and the rest of the staff are very helpful and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable and pleasant.

I have already booked a room for this place in July for Full Moon because it books up fast and this is the ONLY place I will stay on Koh Phangan.

Also, this is a very chill and relaxing place to stay when its not around Full Moon. If you are looking for somewhere to relax during your travels then Beach Village is perfect.

Thanks for a perfect stay and I will see you guys in July!

Really incredible resort. I went here during my gap year based on the reviews I saw online and can say that I was not disappointed. The people were incredibly helpful throughout, a high level of hygiene/cleanliness was found and throughout my year abroad staying here was definitely one of my favourite moments. Also the pool and the general vibe I found here really made me feel at home and for the price I paid I could not have asked for better. I would 100% recommend this to anyone.

we have been traveling for over six months and this is the first time i have felt compelled to write a review.
stayed here over the May full moon from the moment we arrived we started having fun.
the owners are Thai and British and nothing was too much trouble for them.
we had a run in with a scooter hire company that tried to extort 40,000 Baht out of us so we told the Thai lady who runs The Beach Village and she come with us and screamed at the crook and got our passports back.
The swimming pool is amazing.
Tiki bar do wicked cocktails with some brilliant Dj's playing everyday.
They have there own nightclub which we see Nicky Blackmarket playing.
I would highly recommend this resort.
Thank you very much for taking care of us.

Visited this place as part of my traveling. Couldn't recommend anything better - fab service, always with a smile, all the amenities you need. Top pool - everything was clean, tidy and just a really fun + vibrant place to be.

Really made you feel at home and definitely enhanced my holiday experience.

Best of all, very affordable!
