Goodtime Beach Hostel
Ranked #11 of 79 Koh Tao B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

We (a family of four, kids 9 and 6 years old) stayed at the Good Time Beach hotel for a week in July 2013.

After spending quite a bit of time researching accomodations on Sairee beach, we settled on Good Times ... and are very glad we did.

We had one of the private rooms, across from the dorms and with a great view of the beach. The room was spacious, very clean and had a large balcony.

Good Times is located on the nicest (and cleanest) stretch of the beach, within easy walking distance to dozens of restaurants and shops.

We also found the staff at Good Times very helpful and pleasant.

The one issue is that the the whole area is quite noisy at night and the bars around Good Times tend to have the music going until at least midnight. It didn't bother us, but if you are a very light sleeper or looking for complete solitude ... you might want to look elsewhere than Sairee Beach.

We would highly recommend it and stay there again ourselves.

Thank you so much for your kind review and we're very glad to hear you had a great time on your stay with us.
The location is superb for all there is to do in Sairee Beach and the most popular area for holiday makers visiting the island. July and August is a very busy period and the bars can be a little busier so granted a little louder, i'm glad this was not a problem for you.
Hope you had a pleasant journey home and we will see you all when you come back to stay again!

My wife and I spent 10 days at Goodtime Beach Hotel, which has amazing sea view rooms on the first floor. The prices are good compared to the competition, as we had discovered staying in other hotels as well. Also e hotel is located perfectly at the middle of Sairee beach, where you want to be when staying at Koh Tao. the sea view rooms protect you from the night buzz.

Goodtime Adventures also offers amazing diving options, both SSI and PADI courses. We did our SSI open water and Advanced courses with Dennis Hunter as instructor, ask for him, he's the best and a very relaxed guy!

Room Tip: Ask for the seaside rooms, these are quiet and have amazing view over the bay!

We stayed here for three nights in a seaview room. It's not the cheapest room in town but it was money well spent. Our room was spacious, clean and had a very comfortable bed (box-spring). The balcony was a big plus. The location is perfect with the beach, shops, bars and restaurants right outside the door. You might hear some music at night but that didn't bother us. The hotel shares the roof with Goodtime Adventures so booking trips was very easy. We went snorkelling, cliff jumping, rock climbing and rappelling. The staff is simply amazing. Friendly, helpful and very funny. Too bad we had only three nights on Koh Tao. Would stay here again.

Thank you Gerben we are very glad you had a great stay and thanks again for the review. We agree the location is just perfect and superb for all amenities on the island. You can hear faint music from a local bar in some of the rooms but it can be shut out by closing the balcony doors, but many like yourself enjoy the background music with the sounds of the sea and the amazing view.
We never say "Goodbye" here on Koh Tao because once is never enough, we hope to see you again for more great adventures and Goodtimes!

I had a great time at the Good Time Beach Hostel!
The Dorm was clean, but I experienced quite some mosquitoes during my stay.

I could practically roll from my Dorm bed to the beach, with an amazing bar and people.
Will recommend it to every Backpacker interested in visiting Koh Tao.

A hotel well worth the money. At a good location with all the necessities just outside the door. Friendly helpful staff and best of all is the proximity to Goodtime Adventure! We stayed in the cheaper room towards the street and it was really good. We would choose it again. The hotel is in a quieter part of Sairee Beach and we had no problem sleeping there.
