“Fantastic stay in Lanta house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

If your looking for a relaxing-budget-friendly rooms this the place to be.
Just steps away from the pier and the local markets where everything and anything can be found.
Lanta House provides a welcoming and warm environment for all ages.
Clean, comfortable with a great staff that would graciously help you without hesitation in anything you need. Not to forget free coffee, tea and drinking water !!!
Also conviently near beautiful beaches where you can take the free bikes provided by Lanta House. From our experience, our intent was to only stay for 2 days, realizing the beauty and calm of Saladan and the rest of the Island, it turned into a 10 day adventure. Lanta House is a must.

If you are a budget traveller, this is your choice! A location in Saladan village is great but you need to travel a little for a beach, but as travelling is cheap, it's no problem to take a tuktuk or scooter. Only thing I was disappointed with, was the shared bathroom which included no wash-basin. I kind of felt irritated washing my teeth there next to urinal. Everything else was fine.

Thank you for your staying with us and your review. Our objective for running hostel business is providing the guest with comfortable, cleanliness, proper facilities hostel. We have washbasin on every floor means that we have three of them right in front of each bathroom with the big mirror too.
Guest walks up to the room will see it first, so we would like you to understand for the matter.

Thans again for you review.

Best Regards.

This place is amazing value for money! The wifi is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed for three nights and were genuinely very impressed. You might think that for the price it's going to be horrific but it really isn't.

Our room was clean and comfortable, the decor is not the prettiest but you'll get over it. Fair enough the shared bathroom isn't beautiful in any way but it does the job and there was never any waiting for it.

The staff are friendly and welcoming, not overly but enough to feel completely comfortable. It's just up from the pier so easy to walk to when you get to Lanta and there are markets and a 7/11 opposite.

I would definitely recommend renting one of the mopeds because you really get to see all of Lanta. We paid 150 baht for the day, fuel is super cheap and we got to see the entire island which was fantastic value.

Overall, it's really good value, the walls in the rooms are thin and do let noise through easily but everyone makes the effort to be quiet at night and there are plenty of signs to tell people to be quiet. Facilites are very good and it's in a good location for shops and there are free push bikes you can take to the beach. Definitely a fantastic budget option.

I highly recommend this hotel. For the price you are getting your own double bedroom, and even though the bathrooms are shared, the standard of cleanliness in this establishment is unrivaled in budget Thailand accomodation. Hiring a scooter there is super cheap (150bht per day) so you can explore the island, and they also loan free bicycles during the day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window to the outside

10 weeks travelling in SE Asia and this place has the current title of worst hostel we have stayed in. Room wasn't clean upon arrival and wasn't cleaned throughout our stay, resulting in lots of bugs in our room. The walls in this place were paper thin which is only beneficial if you like to spy on your neighbours. Luckily we had a balcony room which offered some natural light, although the balcony was actually off limits due to the fact there was bird poo all over the patio furniture... The shared bathroom was pretty grim as it was really small. The staff are present but that's about all you could say about them. On the plus side the wifi worked well and after three nights we were able to leave. I understand it's budget accommodation but we've stayed in nicer places for cheaper.

Great value for money. Stayed in private room with shared bathroom.
Moved from AC to fan as we stayed a bit longer.
Both rooms were really clean and bathroom was clean.
The guy loves his rules.

Can take a bike for the day, but need to be back by 6pm.
Good location for food places but at least 5km from the beaches.
In the village and very family/couple orientated, if you want something more lively go towards the beach.

Stayed for two nights at 380 baht per night for a double a/c room (no outside windows but makes it quieter!). Staff were very friendly and stored our bags until check-in time. Right in the centre of Ban Saladan so plenty of nearby places to eat and drink. I don't think you could find much better for the price- it was simple and clean! Highly recommended!
