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 :)

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 :)

It is definitely a party hostel, music is on all day. The lady who did the check in was very nice, so are the other staff. Everything on the island is walking distance so location is fine. When you wake up and walk 10 meters you are on the most beautiful beach. The only thing is that the hostel is not very clean. Otherwise it's a good hostel if your looking to meet people and party!

I think this is the BEST hostel i have ever stayed at! Met some of the greatest people in my travels at Blanco's, it might have stole a lot of my dignity but i cant wait until i get to go back to Blanco's. Strip Jenga, body shots, beer pong, odds (see shaven armpit), slap cup, you name it people will play it. Now if you don't like to party you will probably hate this place, you will never get to sleep before 2 when the music shuts off, but if you want to meet fellow travelers and Party. BLANCO

Great location, but beds are uncomfortable and the toilets and showers smell pretty awful. But good party atmosphere, and a good laugh. Good for a short party stay, but any longer than 3 nights and you'll be struggling as the speakers as right next to the rooms, so no chance of a night off. I was told that I couldn't check out before 10am by the guy in the morning, and had a 9am ferry to catch, but he eventually came round and allowed me to check out after persuasion

Hi there, thank you for your comments, we value your input. Every day the Thai manager will arrive at 8am and will happily take the key and return the key deposit for early leavers for check out- we apologize that it seems you encountered perhaps a more causal staff member who was unsure on this procedure before reception opens at 10am. Going forward we shall ensure that all early morning staff understand the check out procedure. Regards, The Blanco Team

Good atmosphere for partying, friendly staff although organisation sometimes messed up

Hi there, thank you for your comments, we value your input. We have recently undergone a front reception reorganization in order to enhance the customer experience- it is now controlled solely by western staff . We hope that going forward this will ensure that there are no more organisational misunderstandings or errors. Regards, The Blanco Team

I think you'd better change the thin silk blankets to something else thicker, like fleeces because it's quite cold at night.

Pretty good hostel, right on the beach, very social, really chilled vibes during the day, met heaps of great people! I wouldn't bother staying here if you weren't going out drinking at night though, music stops around 2.30am so would be very hard to sleep before then. Rooms

This hostel is right on the beach which is amazing. It's also a bar and a party hostel so stay here if you want to party! It is a bit expensive and theres no hot water but koh phi phi is expensive in general. Was a good hostel i would stay there again.

Cannot say enough amazing things about Blanco's: the staff, the view, the people, the atmosphere. It's the most fun hostel I've been to in 6 months of traveling. You will play an endless amount of drinking games, meet amazing people, be constantly entertained by nearly naked people and remember hardly anything. These have been the best days of my life and I will genuinely miss the Blanco's team. Sophie, Michelle, Nathan, and Clarine - you are legends - thank you for everything! Xx
