Great location, nice staff. Don't expect to get a lot of sleep there though. If you're here to party, then that's the right place to stay ;)

All together a nice place. Some unfriendly stuff and showers could be cleaner. But I recommend this place and would go again!

We stayed in 6-bed room which is pretty small but comfortable and clean enough. The air con was so cold at night while they provided a silky thin sheet of blanket. Unfortunately, the door should have been fixed as it cannot be locked so we were a bit anxious about our belongings. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here and the dog named Vodka is really adorable! Good choice for partying not sleeping as you can feel the bed shaking until 3 a.m.

Had a great stay at Blancos. If you're looking for a place to go crazy and have a good time - This is it! Don't forget to wear a lot of clothes if you're playing Jenga.

Grungy bar with a giant loud party every night. If you're into that, a totally great time. However, if you want some piece and quiet at any point, do not stay here. You are right in the middle of party central and there will be loud music in your room all day and all night.

Best hostel we've stayed at for a long time...we were there 5 nights and the party atmosphere is amazing and the staff are great to hang out with. Booze Cruise was one of the highlights and has to be done. At night the bar is one of the main hangouts for everyone along the beach and does cheap deals... Will definitely be going back! Xoxo

It's a very fun Hostel, great for meet people! But not so safe and not so clean. It's a party Hostel, so you're not gonna sleep untill 3h, but the party is amazing, join them!!! Lol

Blanco Beach Bar had a great location on the beach front which made it a nice place to be during the day. However at night was a different story... only stay here (or at any of the hostels along the same beach front) if you like going to sleep at 3 in the morning, being woken up throughout the night by drunken dorm mates turning the light on and shouting, and getting headaches from the constantly vibrating walls due to the loud music. Wouldn't go back to the hostel, but Phi Phi was beautiful.

One of the best hostels we've ever stayed in! The atmosphere was great and drinking games were so much fun! And we're in love with Vodka the dog. Would recommend this place 100%!!

i hated everything about this place. The rooms are very dirty and i wouldn't even classify the bed as a bed. It was so hard and uncomfortable. Don't plan on sleeping, the music is so loud is shakes the entire room. I will never stay here again

I stayed at blancos for 2 nights the facilities are good and always clean, the staff are super friendly, I really enjoyed the food and the cocktails but if your not planning on going out its probably not for you. It's right on the beach which is amazing durin the day but be prepared that it's going to be really really loud at night. Great party hostel probably not so great if you wanted a night in.

Exactly what I was expecting from the Hostelworld reviews - great location, beautiful beach, absolute blast! The Thai staff are friendly but not particularly attentive - more than once I would ask for something (a soda, ketchup, whatever) and they'd look me straight in the eye as I was speaking and then just walk away. In the end, doesn't matter because it is a great bar right on the beach with a fantastic party atmosphere. BTW: it is allll the way down the beach at Loh Dalum Bay

Crazy party hostel with very good staff and travellers. Facilities are OK. Can be better. But a great atmosphere! Don't expect to sleep early if you are staying at Blanco :)

Blancos is the best hostel ive ever stayed. The atmosphere is amazing! The staff is really helpful And they really want you to have the best time of your life. I did the booze cruise of blancos as well, best day ever!!! If you like partying you definitely have to stay here. Best party hostel ever. Everyone is full of energy and there are all sorts of drinking games. The beds are really comfertable and also the bathrooms are nice. Had the best time of my life!

Maybe not the right hostel for me. If you don't plan to sleep, and you like drunk frat boys, this place may be for you. Rooms were uncomfortable and depressing. Lockers were tiny and the rooms don't automatically lock, so if your dorm mate forgets to lock the door anyone can walk in. Locations right on the beach but the activities and vibe at the neighboring hostels were better. Book next door at Stones Bar and you'll be happier.

A group of six of us stayed at Blanco for five nights in December. Blanco has everything you'd expect from an island hostel; beds, clean bathrooms and showers, cheap meals, a well priced bar and friendly, accommodating staff. I really enjoyed waking up after a big night and walking 25m into the sea. I would recommend this hostel for anyone with a social outlook.

Best place to stay in Phi Phi! Loved the location and the staff were lovely. Great place to meet people and party but also a fun place to hangout during the day! Rooms were basic with lockers which is fine but make sure you get a key to lock the rooms as the hostel gets busy at night and anyone could walk in. Air con was fab! Showers and toilets were basic and smelt a bit, could do with modernising a bit. Great stay, would come back for sure :)
