Rooms are a decent size and the A/C is good. Wifi was inconsistent, but for the most part works well. The first room we were put in had a leaking ceiling. We didn't know that the ceiling leaked until we came back at night, so we couldn't ask to be switched. In the morning the woman at the front desk told us that she knew we were in a leaky room and she offered to move us. Why we were put in that room to begin with I'm not sure. Rooms at the end of the hall have windows, which is nice.
The Hotel is located close to the pier. Our Double bed room was spacious enough but nothing Special and quiet dark.
The hostel was spotless and the staff helpful although I didn't really need to ask much. Although the hostel was full most nights I stayed, it was quite quiet which suited me but if you go there to meet people you may struggle. The hotel was located well for the ferry, shops & restaurants and a great place to learn to ride a scooter as the island is small and roads are relatively quiet. The beaches are not really walkable but motos or tuk tuks are abundant.
Definitely a good hostel for its price. There is no dormitory room. So for dorm price you get a single room. Clean, good location (near to pier), lots of unexpected but pleasant facilities (bicycles rent for free, 2 computers for hotel guests - good if you travel without laptop, lounge music in bathroom!:-), shampoo/gel/soup).

Quite basic but very helpful staff, cosy common area and everything you need
Really good cheap hostel, Room was clean and comfortable. Everything was provided, towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash. We rented a scooter, excellent price and great bike. The staff were really friendly and really helpful. The female staff member helped us out loads on the final day when our bus didn't arrive. Free tea and coffee all day.
Good place to stay in the actual town as you can talk to ask the dive shops and tour shops
Very friendly and helpful staff, in the middle of town, very clean bathrooms, would definitely recommend renting a scooter quite island so safe and they provide helmets.
Fantastic place to stay in ko lanta, simple, cheap and friendly! The lady boss can help you brush up on your Thai if need be.
Cats on leashes, toothpaste dispensers, gentle spa music in the showers, and lots of signs are some of the extra touches that make this place special! Highly recommend, great place and great value. Thanks!
Nice staff. The commong area bit tiny but enough to sleep. Excellent location.

I was very impressed by the way Bee run this hostel. Very friendly and accommodating, such a refreshment after the attitude in the hostel on Phi Phi. Everything that you needed was provided for you at Lanta house.
Brilliant location right in the centre of town, but never noisy. The bathrooms always clean. Comfy double bed. Cheapest place to stay on Lanta. Nowhere to lock belongings, but the hostel felt safe. Wifi works well.
Great little place, staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are clean. Bathrooms are all shared and sinks are on the outside, but this is all down to the building layout, not the hostel. The place is otherwise flawless and I enjoyed my stay here. Recommended.
The WiFi was a little bit unpredictable but I think they were working on fixing that when I was there. Staff were wonderful and very helpful - I had an issue with noise from one of my neighbours and the staff were very nice about it. Rooms are very good value for money :)
Great place to stay in Koh Lanta. Easy to find and in the main town. Would recommend renting a scooter to explore the island and its many beautiful beaches. The. Staff was great and very accommodating.
EXTREMELY clean; seemed like the owners were always cleaning something! Very sweet and helpful staff. Clean rooms w/ good space. The walls are thin, not a place for party animals. Owner provided amenities that are usually not provided at hotels, much less a guesthouse. The staff are awesome. One guest got in a motorbike accident, and they helped to take care of everything, even taking her to the hospital!
The rooms were very dark and oppressive, but clean. This place is good value for money and within easy reach of the port, restaurants, shops etc. The receptionist was extremely kind and helpful at all times. However, the house itself has no atmosphere.
