Pajamas Koh Chang

Pajamas Koh Chang is one of the new breed of ‘flashpacker’ hostels that have been growing in popularity across Thailand. The emphasis is on safety, socializing and fun.  Not competing on price with the more basic backpacker flophouses.

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 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 cheaper than a Dormitory 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. There’s a freeform pool, sun deck and spacious communal area for socialising.  The owners also organise regular trips and nights out for guests.  

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 the usual  hangout for younger visitors to the island.

Definitely recommended as a friendly, safe hostel on Koh Chang.

Great, friendly ho(s)tel 😀 - Very nice, comfortable hotel voor both backpackers and families near the beach with friendly staff and great swimming pool. 😞 - There is little to do near the hotel and the hotel can get quit in July-August.
good ambient, rooms and near the beach 😀 - everything! pool, staff, rooms
Superb 😀 - All facilities and staff were excellent. Lovely chilled atmosphere and relaxing place to stay. I liked the sense of humour in the posters & the map of the island
Nice place to feel good and relax. 😀 - Close to the beach (2 minutes walking), friendly and very helpful staff, very good breakfast (proper coffee) and basic kitchen equipment for self use, comfy beds. Free water refill and organized scooter rental is very useful and convenient! 😞 - Wifi connection wasn’t stable and not really fast.
We will be coming back! 😀 - Great location, super comfy beds Lovely vibe We ended up extending our stay for 3 extra nights And the staff are so lovely and friendly and even took us on a day trip to a nearby island 😞 - Nothing
