top hostel! very friendly and helpful staff, best dorms ever and the beach is just a 15min walk away!
I loved staying here ... I extended my stay a few times I liked it so much . It's total luxury for backpackers or anyone on a budget . It's a relaxed vibe. My bank was concerned my card was being used fraudulently, so I couldn't take any cash out. Rick was so lovely explaining he had the same problem a few times and let me use his phone. I'm so grateful I was staying there instead of somewhere else who might have not been so kind and help me resolve the issue - thank you . A fab hostel!!!!
Staff were very nice! They even serve you a proper breakfast in the morning! Had alot of dvds that you could watch in the common room or take to your room. You could make your own tea or coffee anytime and they had a fridge for guests to use. Bathrooms were very clean but I wasn't a big fan of the room, it had a sort of stale smell but it did lessen when I opened the window. Also they use fleece blankets which are too warm for Thailand and don't have a sheet underneath. Happy overall
Glur has definitely had the best hostel facilities I've seen in Thailand. Huge beds, massive lockers and personal mirrors in the dorm. Bathrooms were amazing, with warm showers and always so clean. The staff was absolutely lovely, gave us shelter from the rain, snacks and wifi even before we could book the hostel and when it was full. The location is great because we hated Ao Nang as it was very touristy like Patong, but the area around Glur was super cheap, nice locals and quiet.
Main disadvantage was that the common area had no mosquito prevention as it was located outside and as I am prone to getting eaten out here it put me off sitting in the common area during the evening periods when i wanted to relax

Great! I would come back here again next time
Although is not in the center of Ao Nang is not really that far away. The atmosphere and the quality of the hostel are amazing!
Absolutely loved the place! Only thing is they could provide locks for the cupboards, apart from that everything was amazing!
We had to ring this hostel as we were arriving late from hat yai we told the staff that we would be there at 12am due to us greeting a bus the bus was late from hat yai we got there at 1:30am the lady owner was more than helpful in checking us in when we got there. Also there was two other European tourists with no accomodation with us who were looking for a room and they also managed to occupy them for the evening. Overall pleasant venue and very helpful clean and a quirky hostel thanks guys!!
Really clean, helpful staff, easy to book things through. A little far from the beach but worth it!
Nice atmosphere, chilled out place

The hostel itself is great: super clean, great beds with big lockers attached to them. The downside is that the location is a bit far from all the action. It was low season when I was there so there also was not a whole lot going on. Other than that, everything else was great.
A calm, tranquill and relaxing place to unwind and rejuvenate after travelling! The building is contemporary in design and the grounds (not forgetting surrounding mountain) is beautiful! Management was a great help and its more than apparent that they do a great job of looking after the place.
Great place to stay. A little far from the beach but worth it because it is so clean
