      I cannot explain how much gratitude I have for this hosteland their staff. I booked only for 1 day and I stayed many more nights. The value / quality is great. It is clean, and everyone is really friendly. The breakfast is also a great plus! You have there many equipment you can borrow for enjoying more the island (snorkeling gear, marts, games, etc...) Nick, the receptionist is just the best of the best. He tought me how to drive a motorbike is a soooo easy, nice and safe way that I was able to explore the whole island. I am so happy I met him and he helped me so much! Thanks thanks thanks. My friends came later and also stayed more nights here as we were feeling home. I would definately recommend this hostel and get to know its people as they are just AWESOME. I will always remember Lanta and all the great adventures I had here because of this gem!

      Although the hostel was fairly quiet due to low season it was a very social hostel where I met a nice group of people. Good space to socialise inside and outside. 7 min walk to the beach! Scooters available to hire for a good price :) I think the limited aircon hours was the only bad thing, if I wanted to come back for a quick rest in the afternoon it was a struggle because the room was so hot. Even when the aircon was on I feel it wasn’t cold enough and the others in my room commented on this too. I should have really just told the staff this. Don’t let that put you off as I still think it’s a brilliant hostel.

      Good hostel and decent breakfast”

      Free tea and coffee for breakfast. Pancakes and pastries were excellent. Eggs and sweet potato. Best hostel breakfast I have had. - not very sociable place but I guess depends on the time you get there. Helpful and competent staff

      Good enough”

      Beds were alright.. basic breakfast in morning. Front desk lady was nice. Stayed in 16 bed dorm first night which I dont recommend.. clueless rude french people keep you up.. and more. I ended up moving to 4 room dorm and everything was cool. Overall your fine if you dont got annoying french pple in your room.
