I stayed here for 8 days and can't believe how well priced this hostel is. It has beach access and a great common area for hanging out. Had a bit of a motorbike accident and the staff were so amazing at helping in any way they could. Dorms were standard. No lockers inside the rooms, but there were some just... More

It was raining so I stop my motorbike here to have a beer. it is a fun little place with their own beach. You can call it quaint. The beer was cold the Internet works well and the people were friendly. They have their own restaurant I have to go back and try it.

Pretty great party hostel we stayed in before the jungle/full moon party. Staff seemed to really enjoy each other including very fun kitchen and house keeping staff that would come down and take shots with guests at the very lively bar. Hostel looks out onto the beach with an awesome sunset view and they offer a decent breakfast/lunch (little expensive... More

My wife and I hung out here, but we didn't stay at the hostel. The bar staff are great fun, beware of the drinking games, you might get drunk and have fun ;-) The hostel has access to its own section of beach and plenty hammocks for chilling.

We stayed there for the half moon party and the days after. The place is super chilled, they got many different spots to lay down and a big common area. They do pre parties and organized everything you need to go to party. The breakfast is amazing (for 100 baths you have an all-you-can eat of fruits, yoghurt, bread and... More

We popped in for a drink - we stayed at Le Divine Comedie a short stretch along the beach. This is a lively place that attracts a welcoming bunch of backpackers from all over. We we're really bowled over by how welcoming everyone was. We weren't residents, we didn't know anyone but straight away people were chatting away to us.... More

I booked my 2 friends and I a private 3-bed bedroom at Echo Beach Backpackers hostel which was very bare, but clean. It was across the street from the Echo bar which meant it was quieter than the other side. The vibe was excellent: young people, young friendly staff, hammocks and an abundance of chilling spots, and with a beach... More
