Cliff and his wife Ruth (Mali Resort) are excelent hosts on an island that is not so hospitable. This hostel was a pleasant surprise in a sea of disapointment on Koh Lipe. The locals are oblivious to the fact that tourism and the sea are this islands lifeline. The island gets billed as Pinache with a high price tag. PINACHE No. The island is surrounded by a ring of trash that washes ashore on all beaches at high tide. Perhaps it is time for mother nature to reclaim this island?
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..
