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.

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.

When my friends and I came here, on a whim, we decided that we would only stay the night....but that turned into more than 2 weeks. With the most social people and a invitingly staff, we all became a great group of friends that spent all day and night together. I was picked up by one of our bartenders that... More
