Love this Hostel! Very clean and the best price on the island.
The hostel owner is such a nice person and helps you with every problem. Loved it, to hang around with the other visitors of the hostel at the big table.
I'll definitely come back :)

Loved my stay at asia backpackers!! I was planning on staying a few days and ended up staying more than a week! Location is close to the pier with shops, restaurants and bars. There is a nice beach a 15 minute walk away, but it felt shorter.
The staff is great and go out of their way to try to help you get the best out of your trip to the island.
The rooms are very nice and clean, all newly renovated. There is still a bit of construction going on with the bar and common area, and i cant wait to go back and see how it turns out!

Most would say getting off the ferry is quite the headache, so imagine trying to find a place to stay in the late afternoon could be quite the issue.. We got on a songthaew which is a pick up taxi that got us to Bang Bao where the hostel is located. It's about a 20 minutes away, while admiring the breathtaking scenery around you. Upon Arrival at the hostel, without any reservation during a very busy, jam packed hostel, Josh, the owner welcomed us like we had VIP reservations. He placed us in a very beautiful cottage that are very well maintained. Josh recommended many things to visit and to do at no cost if your on a budget, not that anything is overly expensive on the island anyways. Around the corner from the hostel, josh recommends to go to the inexpensive restaurant with quality food and size as well as a couple roadside bars (until the hostels bar is ready). We needed laundry done, we'll of course Josh decided that him and his wife would take care of it instead of going through the hassles while backpacking. I'm a 21 year old guy traveling with my 45 year old dad, and I visited many hostels mostly in North America, but this has to be the best and most welcoming, helpful, and fun hostel I've ever seen.. Koh Chang was a 3 day stop that became 7 days and will most likely be a stop on the way back home just because of how much we loved it. My dad and I would like that thank the whole team for the efforts they put in for the guest and maintenance of the site. Thanks guys! See you soon! Yannick and Danny
