Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for 3 nights recently and the rooms and the hostel are really nice and modern. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm with double beds and it was comfy and big and you get a really good sized locker.
The rooms are kept clean but the bathrooms could really do with getting cleaned more, the baskets are always full and the toilet paper runs out loads. There are always things left on the side in the showers and some of it was generally unclean - mostly down to the people who stay there not cleaning up after themselves!
We had a good stay but didn’t sleep well at all due to the 3 pairs we had over the 3 days being so so loud and inconsiderate - not the hostels fault I know but annoying!
It was in good location and the staff were really nice

The Chic Lipe is as it's name suggests chic and luxurious for a hostel. The private rooms are super spacious, some of the largest we've seen in a hostel, and come with a really modern bathroom and design. We loved the concrete walls and wooden interiors.
The common area on the ground floor is also very spacious, has plenty of room to sit and chill and even 2 pool tables if you fancy a game. We were here in low season so it was very, very quiet but can imagine this place will be buzzing in high season.
The breakfast was a choice of either western style or Thai style with both being good but we preferred the Thai style.
We also hired the bikes for a day, but they are a bit old and not ideal for the hills on the island but all in all we still enjoyed using them for a day and would do this again.
If you're on a budget on Koh Lipe this is definitely the place to be.

I've recently stayed at The Chic and would like to praise the fabulous service, delicious breakfast and iced coffee 😁.

The staff - all of them, from the receptionists to the waitresses to the general manager - went out of their way to be helpful and made sure I felt comfortable and welcome. All employees are very friendly and accommodating.

The room was clean and in a quiet location. The private room I had looked like one you come across in a 4-star hotel. In other words, "The Chic" is very apt. I'll definitely stay there again the next time I visit Lipe.

We got the private room and it was everything we need. The hotel was very newly decorated. The bed was comfy and clean. The staff were nice and welcoming. It’s a good price for the hotel in Lipe and only 3 mins walk to the beach.

We did not stay here but we went for drinks for 4 evenings and food for 1 evening. It was our go to place as it had cheap priced beer and food, plus a decent pool table.
The hostel looks like a 5 star. The Staff are lovely, hard working and professional. Especially the young lady with glasses and the Gentleman who looks like the Manager.

If you want luxury at affordable prices then this could be the place for you on this beautiful Island.
On our last night here, we will be going back to the Chic Boutique Hostel.

This hotel is chic like its name, well-designed, nice decoration and beautiful paintings. The price is reasonable. The location is great, not too far from walking street. Breakfast is ok. The room is clean. The staff is nice. Two things, there is a hole in my towel and the water not running for hours on the day of check-in.

I don’t normally review the very many hotels I stay in but the Chic requires a review. This is a rock-solid quality hostel more like a 5 star hotel. I stayed in a private room. Fantastic design, excellent staff, attention to detail with extras like scented towels, ample power and usb points, storage, and stocked free mini bar, the rooms are really well appointed.
Free breakfast included for 2, even if only one is staying, you get two breakfasts all day. Try the French toast with pork mince, it’s excellent.
2 minutes walk to the beach! Free pick up and drop off at the ferry! Air conditioning and hot water!
Thank you Mae for your wonderful service before and throughout my excellent stay.
Unless you want a rustic beach bungalow or a fancy five star hotel, I would absolutely recommend this property for an affordable and comfortable stay in Koh Lipe. Don’t expect the Four Seasons, and bear in mind this island is expensive, but for the price you pay you’ll be very satisfied.

This place is really a diamond in the rough. It's fairly new, but that means it's very clean. Spaciously built with tasteful interior decor, it's really more hotel than hostel. It's just so well designed with the concrete walls, wood accents and comfortable lounges.
I stayed in the family room as I was travelling with 4 others and it was great. Strong AC, comfy bed and nice bathroom. What's awesome is that the accommodation came with free breakfast and boy do they serve a lot for breakfast.
Service was amazing - reception was helpful and suggested places to go to for activities. Housekeeping even changes your towel every day. One lady in particular, May, was exceedingly friendly and helpful. She aided us in a few special requests and gave advice on where to go on the island. She's an example of what great hospitality should look like.
The one downside was that on two nights other rather inconsiderate guests were making a lot of noise at around 5am, waking all of us up. When confronted one of them said that it being a hostel "it should be expected" - what BS. When you stay at hostels, it's the opposite; you are extra mindful of being considerate to your fellow travelers and keep the noise down at such hours. Perhaps the management could put up a sign reminding people of this and/or take action when they become unruly.
Overall, awesome experience here and would stay again

After spending four days in an expensive bamboo bungalow because I thought beach front was key (just battled bugs), I went to Chic Lipe and wow.

Modern, beautiful decor. Excellent food on site. I chose a double bed, 4 person with our own bathroom. So clean, so comfortable, air con worked great. I was really amazed by this place and think it is the nicest hostel I have ever stayed.

I walked to Pattaya beach via walking street for sunset, about 15 min. I think you can cut thru to sunrise beach via the resorts across the street but I didnt do it.

Dinner was great and affordable compared to walking street. I wish I found this place sooner, don’t be deterred that its not beach front. Its a beautiful space to return to after a day at the beach.
