Gu's bay is amazing for many reasons; value for money, friendly staff (and friends of the staff), quirky design, great rooms and beautiful surroundings to name but a few. Considering we arrived in low season and were the only people at the hostel for a couple of nights, we were shown an amazing time by the owners and their friends... More

We stayed at Gu's bay in late June this year. The hostel was awesome, with friendly staff, great facilities and a really nice pool. The bar/restaurant area is one of the best I have ever stayed in and the layout really welcomes a social atmosphere. The rooms were nice and as I was travelling with my partner we booked a... More

The hostel felt super laid back, it had good food and nice staff. It had fantastic views of the sea and a chill out area with hammocks to watch the sun set into the gulf of Thailand. It even had a tattoo studio. The room was decent size, not amazing but good for a short stay.

The location is nice and quiet, with a beautiful view. The atmosphere and staff are relax and pretty nice. Still I wouldn't recommend this hotel. The fan room we had was pretty rudimentary, but we're more of backpackers travelers so that's not really the problem. The private shower was cloggered, there were hair and dirt on the ground. Most of... More

The resort is located in a quite part of Koh Chang on the west coast. If you like partying then the lonely beach where all the action is just a 5 min drive by the taxi. The resort is good place to meet people as they have a good community place where people can relax and mix around. If you... More

Gu's Bay is in Bai Lan Bay, with a rocky beach. The main road is a 3-minute walk away, with a few shops, massage places, and restaurants. It's a 30-minute walk or a 3-minute 50-baht songtaew ride from party-central Lonely Beach. It takes 8 minutes to walk to Bai Lan Beach. It's fairly quiet most nights except for Saturday, when...

Perfect quiet hang out on Bailan Bay. With a beautiful view, a nice swimming pool, good food and clean rooms this place is almost perfect. Don't let the "rules" on the wall next to the reception put you down. In reality staff is helpful and friendly. Great value for money.

Clean rooms, good matras, hot water and a very very friendly staff. we want to stay for 3 nights but we make 8. Perfect view over the sea and no rumor from the street for a good price. Fitness for the mind is perfect, we will come back.
