Like all other reviews don't expect to get any sleep. The bar next door, which is empty for most of the night, played loud music till way after midnight. The beds are as hard as the concrete floor. The room also smelt like a toilet. Now this is all fine for 200 baht per person but the big issue I... More

This place is one of the cheaper places to stay on the island. But remember you get what you pay for. The staff don't care about anything and it can get really noisy here. The location is good and the bar In the trees just round the corner is a great place at night!

Surronded by other hostels and bungalows along with bars and restaurants looks like a small town where you re going to know evrybody :) The beach is 2 min walking and at sunset evrybody is there to enjoy and say goodbye to an other...

We stayed in a bungalow. Which was very nice and spacious. But very expensive. The dorm option is ok we checked it out but there is only fan dorms no A/C which you need on Ko Lanta as its soooo hot here. The staff is not friendly, the wifi is the worst I have ever seen in all of Thailand... More

Not the greatest or best place on the island but it is perfect for backpackers on a budget. We stayed in a bungalow with two beds... Bed were pretty good, shower had no pressure but did give out hot water. Lots of room in the bungalow and bathroom. Wifi did not work in the room though, had to go to... More

We have not stayed here but we have eaten here a few times ! All our meals have been delicious ! Especially the papaya salad and cashew nut chicken .. All the staff appear to be lady boys ... However appear to be friendly upon serving but no conversation ... Food has been great so far !

if you are looking for a quiet place where to relax without pretentions, this is your place. We really had a good time here, but we were with a group of friends. We rented a bungalow that was fine, no a/c but we really didnt need it. I recommend this place to stay with friends. From there you can rent... More

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
