One of my favourite experiences from my trip to Southeast Asia was definitely Chill Out House! This was my first real backpacker experience and it was amazing. Everyone from the staff to the guests were such kind and positive people. The owners are amazing people. I highly recommend getting a bamboo tattoo from Arm! Of course, this place might not... More

I initially booked 3 nights here to land in Koh Lanta, I quickly realised I had found the best place on the island! It is so unique, so relaxing, I couldn't come back to Koh Lanta without coming here!

It's basically a big tree house where u are invited to join the family that live there! Of corse there are mozzies it's Thailand! They have nets for them-get some repellent if u want to complain some more! It is not luxury but most people on a budget never expect luxury- it is a different experience to any other hostel...

We booked the private "Bamboo" hut for 2 nights but only stayed for one. It was very uncomfortable, and I am pretty sure the couple staying in the "Bamboo" next to us felt the same way. 1. "Loads of mozzies!" This is a quote from an Australian woman we met elsewhere but we found it applied. Yes, there is a... More

As soon as I walked into chill out I knew I was going to be on koh lanta a while!! Jess, Marilyn and all their volunteers go out of their way to make sure you have the best time and feel like part of the family. Wish I could stay forever. If you want to meet amazing people, live in... More

I initially booked just 4 nights at Chill Out House. I have now been here almost 3 weeks and am volunteering to ensure the guests have the same experience I first had when I arrived. Chill Out House isn't just a hostel, it's a loving community that works together to make it the amazing place it is. Chill Out House... More

I prebooked this place and picked it mainly because I liked the name and because of the good ratings. To be honest, I was surprised about the fact that you sleep on mattresses on the floor with a mosquito net around it and that there is sand basically everwhere, but as I didn't really read up on the place beforehand...

This place was ok. It is extremely cheap and that is its appeal for most people here. Most of the clientele are party back-packer types and the vibe is really not very friendly if you are not going out and getting stoned and trashed with them every night. There is a lot of weed smoking going on in the common... More

This was a lovely little hostel run by a mother and daughter pair. We had originally booked ourselves into a hut 2km down the road but thought we would pass by to see what it was like as we had been recommended it by someone else on our travels. Best idea! We moved out of our bungalow as soon as... More

I had a great time staying here, I stayed in a private single room. The design and layout of the tree house hostel is really cool, you can tell a lot of thought and effort has gone into it. The atmosphere is quite nice, it's really close to the beach but is also a place to relax if it's raining/... More
