If you want to get bitten by bed bugs just under 100 times in one night stay here! (I have photos) Basic facilities but within 20 minutes of moving in bed bugs will be crawling over your bag and things. I saw it happen to 3 different people after I moved out. The owner pretended to not know what they... More

Has got to be the most basic beach hostel I have been – does its job in terms of affordability and proximity to the beach whose shore is also lined with restaurants and bars Unlike other hostels though which provide some helpful basics, ‘independence’ is sort of promoted here. Upon check-in, I was provided a pillow and a bedsheet so... More

Our stay here was fine. Nothing amazing to write home about, as previously mentioned, the beds are hard, even by Asian standards and at night all music comes through into the room. I didn't sleep well but then you can sleep all day on the beach, which really is a very nice beach. Literally located a few mins from Long... More

I enjoyed the laid back vibe of this hostel. The dorm rooms are very basic but have all the necessities. One con is the lack of plugpoints. I spent most of my time on long beach which is only a short walk away. Very strong wifi, probably the best wifi I had in my 4 months around South East Asia.... More

Funky Fish is away from the bigger crowds and situated in a cool hippy community 1 minute from long beach, and just by bars and restaurant. Rooms are basic and staff aren't that good at English but good value for money.

A very basic hostel but also very cheap. 200 bath a night and shared bathrooms in the room, 2 toilets and 2 showerroom. You can rent a towel if you want for 50 bath. They do have bungalows as well. Good area for backpackers and people on a strict budget. There is different food stands in the area that is... More

I stayed in a dorm and a bungalow during my stay here. Location wise it is fantastic a 2 minute walk and you are on long beach. The dorms are basic with very hard beds however we all slept pretty well, but the showers are good with strong water and hot! The bungalows are nice if you need or want... More

Reading the other reviews I see other people haven't had such a great experience. We stayed in the dorms It's a great location, just in the beach and the restaurant serves lovely food and quickly. It's not badly priced for lanta either. The restaurant next door is a little over priced but is a good place to chill out during... More
