I don't mind basic but this place is just run down. The management would be better occupied getting a grip of the upkeep rather than writing dumb replies to any criticism. I'm not being melodramatic here but I literally wouldn't let my dog sleep on the filthy sun loungers. Any seating on the beach is falling apart. Pool grubby. If...

We stayed here for 5 nights and did enjoy our stay. The bungalows are a bit worn down and don't have a fridge or wifi in which is annoying but you can walk to the cafe or by the pool and they both have wifi. There are a few gaps in the ceiling in the bathroom which allows insects to...

We stayed at The Beach Village for a week over the new year period. It is located within walking distance from the the Thong Sala Pier and has plenty of supermarket and dining options just up the road. We stayed in a private A/C room which seemed pricey for what it was but was probably average considering the time of...

Stayed here a few times now and let's just say the standards are slipping not only are some of the staff high on drugs but it's at times hard to differentiate the staff from the holiday makers due to the amount of play time they all seem to have. Waiting for food was a joke and some times when sitting...

My friend and I stayed here for nearly 2 weeks in December and it was the highlight of our trip. Everything about this pace is incredible! The staff go above and beyond to help you and make sure your staff is as comfortable as possible. The food available at the restaurant is amazing and they have daily western/Thai specials at...

This hostel have an awesome swimming pool right in front of the beach and is well localized in the busy part of the island. The price is quite high and people don't usually stay partying in the bar there. It's a good place to chill although.

Stayed here multiple times over new year and NEVER LET DOWN! The crew who run the place are legendary! On New Years eve morning they hooked me up with a kettle full of spirits to distribute to everyone in the dorms free to get the SESH going! The pool is perfect when you need to cool down in the hot...

Staff could not have been friendlier. Let us use there phones to sort out flight plans, going the extra mile for us. Food was nice and priced well. Room was pretty standard, bathroom was average but nothing to complain about. Very welcoming atmosphere and has a nice bar at night to have a few more drinks. Good for pre drinking...

This place has such a chill vibe - it's one of the best values out there for backpackers. The pool is probably my favourite on the island, and of course Tiki bar right beside it serves up delicious cocktails. The owner is lovely and sweet and will help you with whatever you need! Book directly and save yourself some coin...

Thanks for the review, I understand that during the periods outside of the Fullmoon and this part of the year Koh Phangan can be very quiet but i am glad that you still enjoyed yourself. The Company we use to rent our scooters are very trustworthy and we do not let them take your passports from the resort and are...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Party or relax at our beautiful beach resort overlooking the picturesque Gulf of Thailand. The Beach Village is a backpacker friendly resort designed in a village style, spread along 200 meters of stunning Baan Tai beach. We offer a wide range of accommodation, ranging from bungalows with sea or pool views through to our spacious air-conditioned dorm rooms. We have everything that you need to have a great stay without leaving the resort; our restaurant serves a mix of both Western and Asian dishes, catering to those homesick or adventurous. You can enjoy a meal at our latest addition, the Grub Club. A huge success, our newest venture, situated on the beach, offers gourmet burgers, hotdogs and Fish ‘n’ Chips, all freshly cooked everyday. You can choose from a selection of cocktails or beers at our purpose built Tiki Bar next to our stunning beachfront pool. We also boast our very own nightclub, the Ku Club, a beachfront venue which has hosted DJ’s such as Netsky, Goldie and members of the Prodigy. We are located 5 minutes from the bustling port of Thong Sala, which as the main town of the island offers all the amenities you would expect. In the opposite direction we are just 15 minutes from Haad Rin, and the famous Full Moon beach. We are also only 100 meters from the First Western Hospital, opened in early 2015. Our multilingual reception staff are always willing to help, and can assist in booking tours, excursions and onwards travel. Please note this is not a quiet place to be during Full Moon!
