I loved this place! It is cheap, you get exactly what you pay for, nothing more, nothing less. Laid back, comfy, good place for 1-2 days. Location is excellent, beach is very close with the most amazing sunset, and there are nice restaurants nearby.

I wish I could describe more about that place as I was there for 6 nights in a dorm plus 4 nights in a bungalow. But I can not. I was stolen at that place!!! Someone got inside my bungalow and take all my money inside my wallet. It was someone that already knew about my routine at that place.... More

We arrived at Koh Lanta quite late in the evening, and ended up with a night here. To be honest, we were very disappointed. It was quite dirty and sandy, it smelled rather bad, and it was extremely hot inside the cabins. Yes, it's cheap, and yes you get a bed and a shower, but I wouldn't recommend this to... More

Stayed here overnight with friends on the request that we wanted to check out some island nightlife. Which we got in the form of a little hippy village complete with bars and restaurants just outside the front gate! Awesome. The bungalows, although a bit dark, were comfortable and equipped enough for a overnight stay. Cool place! Check it out if... More

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!

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...
