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

We only stayed for one night even thou we had booked for four. We stayed on a bungalow near the beach (they also have bungalows a couple of hundred meters against the main road). The bungalow was basic and ok, but they should take a little bit more care on the surrondings. The owner/ boss is not the most helpful... More
