Hostel is clean with breakfast included, reasonably priced ( double: fan room - 450baht, a/c room 550baht )unfortunately most of rooms have windows facing corridor… anyway you can always check room first before you pay so it is up to you; I stayed there only for one night so I didn’t mind.
There is only one thing I want to warn you: DO NOT BUY any tickets through the reception! (They sell transfer tickets to other island and trips I think). We bought from them transfer: Phuket to Koh Lanta -taxi plus FERRY for 700 Baht each person which we thought was a fair price. Unfortunately our journey turned out to be a long way in a minivan with poor a/c. The average price for transfer Phuket-Koh Lanta by minivan is 250-300 Baht so you can see that we have been seriously overcharged and really disappointed as we wasted most of our day in a van. On Koh-Lanta they left us in the middle of nowhere, they did that obviously for the reason - there were overpriced taxis and tuk-tuks already waiting for you!
Anyway, enjoy your stay in Thailand and remember you will be ripped-off many times so do not let this spoil your holidays :)
