nice hostel budget price


Pros- it's right on the beach, aircon for cheap, big dorm room, big lockers, towels, good showers Cons - a walk to walking street and food but walking on the beach is really fine! Door doesn't lock, no communal area after the diving shop closes at end of the day, slow wifi, toilets got cleaned once in 3 days so it smelt because you can't flush the toilet paper down For one person it's easily the cheapest place to stay! Would stay again if was by myself


On an expensive island, thus backpackers is a great option. It's right on the beach and even though it's at the end of the beach, Lipe is such a small island, it doesn't nake that much of a difference. I had a very chilled time, met some lovely people and enjoyed my stay here!


Lipe backpackers was perfect for what I wanted, the hostel was right on the beach and is run by the best bunch of people. So friendly and helpful. The hostel room was clean, tidy and came with aircon, and very comfy beds. Loved the vibe on ko lipe, so chilled but busy at the same time.


Was a nice stay as the beach is directly in front. Horrible nights sleep... dorm set ups suck but it'll do since koh lipe is such an expensive island but not my favorite dorm room ever. It was clean though!


The only budget-friendly accommodation o the island. Well worth the money, but its located very remotely in the very end of thd Pattaya beach. dorms are nice with big bunks, toilets and showers are clean.

Awesome! Located on the beach! Sand was everywhere, but that is expected when staying on an island! Staff was wonderful!


This place is amazing, it is right on the beach, facilities are clean, there's aircon, you actually step out of your room into the sand. Beautiful!! Staff was super nice and helpful.


empty the bins in the room, as rats come in at night, more power points as there was only 3 plug ins to a 6 bed dorm. shower/toilet/tap water was yellow. wifi was temperamental but speedy. its on the far end of pattya beach. 10-15min walk to walking street, but everything in lipe is walkable. very spacious and airy with fan/aircon compared to the other hostel on the island. there is only two hostels on lipe so prices is the cheapest you can get. not the best value but worth it for koh lipe


Great hostel to stay. And the only place that's cheap on Koh Lipe. Can't understand why people are complaining. They have lockers, close to the beach, close the everything to be exact. And it's logic you have sand everywhere because the hostel is actually on the beach. Wifi comes and goes. I had a great time there.


I loved the location right on pattaya beach so easy to get around and about 10 mins walk to the walking street. They overbooked quite a lot of the time, there was so much sand on the floors, the door just closed with no key or security. The water in the taps was yellow it was really off putting.


Could be a bit cleaner, but overall a nice stay and the location directly at the beach is just fantastic! Price is also okay for Ko Lipe.


When I stay the hostel at the period, the water is very yellowish an the floor is full of sand. They need to sweep the floor frequently if not the sand will drop at the bed. Other that that is ok.
