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

On our first night myself and two other girls rented an ac bungalow for 4 nights. The place looked nice and clean. No lockers though. We left for one hour and came back someone had come in through the window and stolen all of our money, passeports, credit cards, cameras and jewellery. The bamboo bars on the window weren't fixed...

I wish I had read some of the reviews before stumbling upon Funky Fish. Their location is great, very close to the beach but the two main staff members and most of the restaurant workers are rude and apathetic. On my first day I kindly asked for a standard amenity in the bungalows to be fixed and experienced the staff... More
