I was very surprised about the high rate this hostel has. The dorms are extra small, there is not even space to put your bags. The party goes on until 3 or 4 am. In my room a guy vomited the whole floor and the guy in charge refused to clean. He finally 'clean' -if you can say that- but you can imagine it was still a mess. The lockers are old and rusty, the social areas are most of the time dirty. The staff is not helpful. I say go to party there but don't stay, there are better places nearby.

Staff were unhelpful! The security was sketchy and the lockers outside. Free access to anyone to the rooms as rooms arnt locked and are free standing outside. its also located at the end of the beach but close enough to all the bars, clubs, shops etc. wouldn't stay here again.

Its a party hostel. I heard some girl got her backpack stolen overnight. Uncomfortable beds, horrible bathrooms. .. Again it's a party hostel

Great staff, extremely helpful. Had the absolute best time, and met amazing people. Always something fun going on at Blanco, which is nice when you're traveling solo. Dave is great. Absolutely would stay here again.

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.

It's definetly a partyhostel so if you want to go to bed before 3am....soooo loud. But it's a lot of fun

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!
