I feared for my belongings kept in the lockers, and everything else just wasn't my cup of tea.

We stayed at blancos for 3 nights and we enjoyed it every single night of partying, the social people and the vibe of the hostel with their bar right at beach amazing. If you look forward to sleep before 3 am don't go there! The music is basically on your door step, if you fancy a party hard vacation you're in the right place. Only thing which bothered me was that you don't get Keyes to your room thei basically open all the time, but nothing got lost in our luggage though. We simply loved it! ❤️

We had a good time at blancos, the atmosphere was what was expected when right on the party beach! It was very noisy at night, so difficult to sleep but the location was great. Thank you.

Blanco's is amazing. If you are looking for an awesome place to party and a bed nearby, stay here. If you plan on getting a good night's sleep and taking it easy this place is not for you though -- the music played in the bar is extremely loud and usually doesn't stop until 3am. But if you are there to party this doesn't matter because Phi Phi is not really the kind of island you'd go to catch up on zzz's. The staff are awesome, the food is good, and the location unbeatable.

Depends what you like. Very social atmosphere, loud music until 3am so only stay there if willing to party. Unfriendly front desk but great bar/food employees.

This place is awesome to stay at. It's not a 5 star resort but it's a great place to meet people and just hang out, relax

This is an excellent place to mix, mingle, and party. When we arrived in the afternoon there were people playing drinking games which followed into the evening. If you want quiet and mellow this is not the spot.

Pros - Stunning outlook onto the beach and ocean. - Great location for young travellers in Phi Phi! - Night scene is awesome with the bar and games outside. - Rooms were minimalist but were clean when we arrived. Cons - Super noisy at night (comes with the territory).

Mice in the hostel dorm rooms - Would suggest you block under the door if staying here!

The rooms don't lock, the rooms are clean enough and the staff is useful. The main reason to head there is cause it has a prime location on the beach and there is a party every night, however I would suggest staying somewhere off the beach (pay half the price) and then head there at 8:30/9ish to hang-out and drink. If you bought lunch from them you could probably lay on their chairs during the day too. It was fun but lacking basic services.

It is set in a beautiful location but the facilities are terrible. The rooms are tiny, the beds are extremely hard. Showers and toilets are not clean especially at night when there a lot of people in the bar. Do not stay here if you want an early night. If I go back I will book somewhere not on the beach for better value. This is the place of you don't mind dirty facilities and want to party with gap year travellers.

If you want to live on a beach in the sand, this is the perfect place. You have to party every night because music turns off at 3 and even after that it's still busy. It's right on the doorstep of the beach which is great but be prepared to be sandy almost all the time. The toilets and showers were bearable, but if you're not to bothered and just want to be close to the lively beach bars and go out every night I'd definitely recommend blanco. Loved the staff and their dog and food was AMAZING!

Mixed feelings about this place. Good atmosphere in the daytime as you can just chill on the cushions looking out at the beach. But it feels like I was staying in a nightclub. The first night we arrived in Phi Phi we wanted a relatively early night but sleeping is out of the question. Our 6 bed dorm was pretty cramped too. Redeeming quality is that aircon is AMAZING

Booked blancos for 3 nights and left after just 1! The room was very basic, hard beds, no personal space or locker to store your items. Thumping bass music from about 7pm to 3am so impossible to sleep at any point. Rooms are not locked and nobody is given a key. The lockers were bent and looked like they had been broken into a lot so we avoided them. Location on the beach is nice but not worth it to stay there. Showers and toilets grubby. Avoid!

There was no lockers available, consequently stuff was stolen from my bag. There was much confusion over beds, ended up getting my money back and staying somewhere else. Just go to party, don't stay

dirty place, small rooms


57%

The bar was nice, but the room, showers, and toilet area was quite run down. A couple of the showers were broken, the toilets were messy. The rooms were cramped with little light, and we were only given a sheet, and we got cold later in the night. We were also nervous about leaving our valuables in the lockers; some of them looked like they had been pried open and peoples items stolen. We later moved next door to Stoned, and felt way better about the security and facilities.
