Goodtime Beach Backpackers is the ultimate backpacker Koh Phangan hostel. It’s pretty reasonable why they’re a bit pricier compared to most hostel because their amenities are just better than most.
There are so many things you can do here:

24 hours swimming pool and very massive and clean at that
Chill at their bar by the beach
Sports area including beach volleyball, pool table, ping pong table and other sports equipment
hangout under their shaded canopies
watch movies outdoor (this is the coolest experience you can have in this beach if you’re into the outdoor movie)
they also have events that you sign up the moment you arrived in the hostel, this includes Ang Thong Marin Park tour, Beer Pong Tournament, Island Tour, and Wipe Out Wednesdays.
Just a cue: the staff here are overly cool that they’d get you drunk your first night so beware.
