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...

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... Bed were pretty good, shower had no pressure but did give out hot water. Lots of room in the bungalow and bathroom. Wifi did not work in the room though, had to go to...

We have not stayed here but we have eaten here a few times ! All our meals have been delicious ! Especially the papaya salad and cashew nut chicken .. All the staff appear to be lady boys ... However appear to be friendly upon serving but no conversation ... Food has been great so far !

if you are looking for a quiet place where to relax without pretentions, this is your place. We really had a good time here, but we were with a group of friends. We rented a bungalow that was fine, no a/c but we really didnt need it. I recommend this place to stay with friends. From there you can rent...

If you want to get bitten by bed bugs just under 100 times in one night stay here! (I have photos) Basic facilities but within 20 minutes of moving in bed bugs will be crawling over your bag and things. I saw it happen to 3 different people after I moved out. The owner pretended to not know what they...

Has got to be the most basic beach hostel I have been – does its job in terms of affordability and proximity to the beach whose shore is also lined with restaurants and bars Unlike other hostels though which provide some helpful basics, ‘independence’ is sort of promoted here. Upon check-in, I was provided a pillow and a bedsheet so...

Our stay here was fine. Nothing amazing to write home about, as previously mentioned, the beds are hard, even by Asian standards and at night all music comes through into the room. I didn't sleep well but then you can sleep all day on the beach, which really is a very nice beach. Literally located a few mins from Long...

I enjoyed the laid back vibe of this hostel. The dorm rooms are very basic but have all the necessities. One con is the lack of plugpoints. I spent most of my time on long beach which is only a short walk away. Very strong wifi, probably the best wifi I had in my 4 months around South East Asia....

Funky Fish is away from the bigger crowds and situated in a cool hippy community 1 minute from long beach, and just by bars and restaurant. Rooms are basic and staff aren't that good at English but good value for money.

A very basic hostel but also very cheap. 200 bath a night and shared bathrooms in the room, 2 toilets and 2 showerroom. You can rent a towel if you want for 50 bath. They do have bungalows as well. Good area for backpackers and people on a strict budget. There is different food stands in the area that is...
