If you go to Thailand you should go to Railay, and if you go to Railay you HAVE to stay at Blanco. Great location and views, fun events and parties, and an amazing staff! Special shoutout to Celine, Lauren and Steve who made me feel at home during my stay. I definitely recommend Blanco to everyone, and I'm sure I'll go back some day!

Blanco hostel blends the hostel experience with resort style living. The hostel has incredible views, an immaculate pool and comfy beds. A 10 minute walk out of the hostel and you'll find everything looks like a postcard. You can adventure through caves, lookouts, jungles and beaches and discover so many beautiful places. The Blanco staff and management are among the best people I've met. Thanks to their generosity, I was able to call this place home for 60 days during the Covid crisis and am extremely grateful for the experiences they enabled me to have. 10/10.

Blanco Hideout Railay is a wonderful hostel with an amazing view over the water and limestone cliffs. It's a great place to be social, hang out by the pool, and meet backpackers of alI kinds (especially because it's the only hostel in Railay). There are fun events held by the hostel every day, and it is also very close to adventure spots that you can check out on your own or with new friends. Pranang Beach and West Beach are each just a ten minute walk away, and there are several hikes to viewpoints, a secret lagoon, into caves, and through the jungle that are really beautiful. Swimming with the bioluminescent plankton is also a must! I ended up staying at Blanco much longer than I originally intended and I made some lifelong friends during my time there. I also got to know Railay is a beautiful place with so much to do, and I will definitely be coming back to this hostel in the future. Shout out to Celine, Lauren, and Steve for truly making Blanco feel like home! I'm already missing my time there and would highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Railay :)

This is for sure one of the best hostels i've stayed at during my trip to asia. The location is perfect with only a 10 min walk to either of the beaches and if you want to try rock climbing it's just around the corner. The pool area is great too and a perfect spot to connect with other travellers. As a solo traveller I really enjoyed this place because of its social vibe. The staff was also great at arranging social activities and games to get people together. I want to give a big shoutout to Steve, Lauren and Celíne. You guys are amazing! I was only going to stay at Blancos for a few days but I ended up staying for a really long time. I would recommend this place to anyone who's thinking of going to Railay and I will definitely come back during my next trip!

Blanco Hideout Railay offers everything. Whether you're looking to kick back around the pool with a couple of cocktails or join in with bar crawls and Muay Thai events, Blanco has you covered. Upon my first arrival at Blanco I was welcomed by a friendly Swedish girl (Tony) who helped me check-in, told me about the local area and asked if I would like to join in with the bar crawl that evening. I really appreciated how chilled everything was when I declined the bar crawl (which I later joined - it's awesome!) I felt listened to and respected. I have stayed at other places where they have been pushy towards the events, this doesn't happen at Blanco, they value your opinion. Walking to my room, I entered the pool area. With plenty of sun loungers available, a bar offering an extensive list of cocktails, beers and local spirits I was presented by one of the best views of Railay East, it is so beautiful! The rooms at Railay are a decent size the beds are comfortable and all of them offer some kind of pool view. It is worth paying a little bit extra for the sea view dorms as the front of the room has a place to relax, unwind and take in the stunning views of Railay. In the evening I met the team of reps. Celine, Steve and Lauren. These guys made my whole experience! I can't thank this group of welcoming, friendly, enthusiastic, funny and good looking group of people enough. They are so understanding, supportive and caring, without them my stay at Blanco wouldn't have been the same. I highly recommend staying at Blanco, I met the best group of people there, it truly is the perfect piece of paradise.
