Pajamas Hostel is one of the new breed of ‘flashpacker’ hostels that have been growing in popularity in Bangkok and have now spread into other areas of Thailand.
Today’s backpackers often want a clean, air-conditioned room that provides safety but with the friendliness and conviviality of old style backpacker hangouts. Pajamas Hostel does all this very well indeed. It’s owned and run by a young Thai couple who have spent a lot of time and effort in building a small resort that ticks all the boxes.
The only negative, for some travellers is that it isn’t a rock bottom, dirt cheap place to stay. If you are on a tight budget then you’ll have to head down the beach to the far more basic Tiger Huts or KP Huts where a basic hut will be much cheaper than a Dorm room at Pajamas.
For travellers with a larger budget, the hostels private rooms offer 3 star comforts but in a very laid back style. Everything is clean, crisp and well-thought out, from the design of the rooms to the amenities in the bathrooms.
The beach is accessed by a 100 metre long public walkway that runs along the side of the hostel. The stretch of beach is far longer and quieter, than Lonely beach, which was for so often the usual hangout for younger visitors to the island.
