I think is Koh Lipe's only hostel, but is not a hostel is a dive center with poorly equiped rooms in the back, no common area, no breakfast, bathrooms that never looked clean and no locks in rooms; you don't get your money's worth. Is a small island and if you plan to go for a few days I recommend you look for a bungalow when you arrive, it could be 100 to 200 baht more but it worth it.


Very simple hostel.. but worth the money.. just in front of the beach with air cond..


Located right on the awesome beach with good comfortable mattresses and kept very clean, good option on lipe


Clean little hostel. No locks for the doors but safes available if you have your own locks. Right on the beach front and a short walk to the Main Street. Only stayed one night, bed was comfy and I had a good nights sleep. Staff are friendly and would go out of there way to help you. Would stay again :)

For this money you could expect better from a Thai hostel, just 2 toilets & showers for a bunch of people. This is the only backpacker on this island among expensive hotels and bungalows, this lil island was one of the most expensive places I've been to in Thailand but it has a gorgeous white beach with turquise water, do the 5 Islands tour and you gonna be really satisfied snorkelling, seeing monkeys etc. Diving is not worth it, rather go to Koh Tao or the Australian Great Barrier Reef!:)


Unfortunately no common area or else but right at the beach instead! Simple but good for sleeping.


This dorm is very simpel but the people and location are great! I enlarged my stay for 9 nights total. Also because the backpackers hostel is owned by the divingschool Davy jones' locker where i did my Padi open water course. (very good course and max 4 person per group, i had private lessons) I chilled out at the front of the shop almost everyday with the staff and a few other customers. Had a great time!


The floor of bed room it have many sand.


Nice hostel in a quiet area, yet close to the walking street. Clean and spacious, unfortunately the wifi was hopeless.
