Do not stay here. There is zero value in staying here versus other hostels. Location wise, it being right on the beach is a bad thing in my opinion because any other hostel on the island is only a 5 minute walk away. By not being on the beach, you avoid getting your feet wet and sandy everytime you leave the hostel and you avoid living in a sandy and wet room. In terms of security, very bad and very little. Anyone can walk into your room. Cleanliness, very dirty, place smells and beds are sandy.

Pros: - great party atmosphere it really does rock every single night! - right on the beach! - cheap drinks at the bar - you can organise tours easily there Cons: - beds are covered in sand and feel dirty no matter how much you brush them! - if you're a light sleeper maybe not right for you (didn't bother me) - bathrooms leave a lot to be desired! Water stinks from the shower and it doesn't drain - air con wasn't very strong in the room and there was literally no room for your bags

This is the best place to stay on Phi Phi. Had so much fun! There's a party here every night - beerpong, flipcup, strip jenga - you name it. Do the boat party they run to maya Bay! Overall a very fun, sociable, clean and safe hostel to stay at. The staff here are amazing - thank you for everything!

Blanco is awesome! The beach is at your front door, the buckets are cheap and the atmosphere is amazing. Such an easy way to meet other travelers. The rooms where clean, good ac and lockers for your valuables. Incredible staff! Very friendly and helpful - don't challenge them at beerpong if you don't wanna lose, cos you will ;) Can't recommend this place enough!

Blancos has a great atmosphere; fun drinking games, beach location, and decent rooms (for Phi Phi). Yes, there's lots of sand everywhere (including beds), it's noisy at night and the bedrooms are cramped - it's definitely not the nicest place we've ever stayed, but I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Phi Phi. It's a party island and this is an unashamedly party hostel. Plus, I stayed last year and the rooms and showers have been updated since then - the air con and water pressure are m

Had so much fun staying here! Don't expect to go to sleep early, or a super clean place, you're staying on a beach so there is sand everywhere! But great location and great environment, so easy to make friends if you're traveling alone

If you want a place to put your stuff while you party, Blanco Beach Bar is the place for you. However if you want a little down time, possibly keep looking, the rooms are super small, sand everywhere (but then again it is directly on the beach) and it's always very loud outside. The shower/toilet was combined and small, so it was difficult to not get your stuff wet. The atmosphere and staff was pretty good, and the aircon in the room was amazing. Wouldn't stay here again but it was cheap!

Good hostel on the beach. Great bar and atmosphere to party and meet others. The AC cut out in the middle of the night so it got extremely hot. The bathrooms aren't the cleanest and the wifi is not good (although this is expected around the islands in Thailand). Overall great place to meet other travelers with a great location beachside to barhop
