Lazy House Hostel was great and made all the better by the manager Taco who was there to answer any and all questions. He really made you feel welcome and helped out in any way he could. The room that we stayed in was a 4 bed dorm with an ensuite. It was basic but comfortable. There was security boxes in the room and the beds were clean and sturdy. The location in the smallish town of Haad Rin was very good as everything, including the beach, was within a 5 min walk. Overall it was a good Hostel

Had the greatest time at the lazy house hostel. Taco the boss is awesome, friendly and always willing to help anyone out. the rooms and toilets are clean, beds are good. perfect location if your coming for full moon party, about 2 mins walk from the beach. lazy house also has a chillout bar that you can go have a snack and watch movies, just around the corner from the hostel. all in all the best place to stay, would recommend to everyone and i would defiantly stay there again.

I stayed there for the minimal of 4 nights because of the full moon party. It has a great score, because the owner let people get away with damage fines if they give The Lazy House a good score. The lockers aren't more than cheap wooden cabinets with a cheap lock. There is no place to lock away your backpack. The bubkbeds are cheap and give little comfort. There is a shortage of power outlets.

Right where to start here ? We DO NOT let anyone off with damages to get good scores you bell end , we dont have to lie on line like a petulant child so why do you feel the need to do this ! In many years of running multiple hostels we have never had a break in to one of the lockers and we still have a perfect record on this so i ask again ,Why lie ? We don't even supply locks at all ever ! The mattresses are good quality ,the bunks themselves have never broken and are in great condition

I stayed at Shenanigans during December/ January 2013/2014 for 7 days. I arrived and was greeted by Paul one of the managers he was kind, very helpful and even gave me a lift on his moped to a restaurant as I didn't know the area well . The room I stayed in was new and had just been built. I was very happy with my room it was comfortable and it was a nice place to relax after a heavy night out. The WIFI was very good and worked well in all areas of my room. I had my own safe deposit box, sofa be

Thaco and his wife and very helpful, reasonable and generous people. Thaco is a great guy who will help you when he can and understands how to run a hostelefficiently at a busy time of year. I stayed at Lazy House with a friend for New Year's. The dorm I stayed in was quiet and peaceful even though it had fourteen beds in it. I appreciated the clean and ample bathroom facilities, AC and clean beds. Good location but a bit expensive. Good place to meet people.

Friendliest staff that we had encountered on our travels and very helpful also. Would always recommend to stay here if you are looking to stay at Haad Rin. Great location, good service and considering the prices that other places on the island were charging, this was really good value for money. The people that stay here are also cool, friendly lot

Paul, the manager there was excellent in his knowledge of the area. even down to reccomending the best restaraunts for my palate that particular day. the rooms were very clean, as too were the toilet and shower area,s. could not ask for any more, from a hostel. informative, clean, happy environment. but in particular the expert advice on hand for me to enjoy my stay and enjoy myself and party, in a safe way, far exceed,s mine or anyones expectations. 5star on a budget thanks for a brilliant time

Close enough to walk to full moon within a couple of minutes but far enough away you didn't hear the music if you wanted to sleep. There is no communal area in the hostel, it's located in the back part of a bar around the corner so made it kind of hard to socialize. We only wanted somewhere clean and comfortable to sleep over full moon and it served it's purpose. Air Con was extremely good. Showers were clean and good.Door to our room was always left open but there were lockers so wasn't worried

Thanks for your review ,although your score seems lower than your opinion . just to clear something up here .All doors to dorms are fitted with door closers so they swing and close automatically , Some GUESTS throw a towel into the door way to stop the door closing when they nip to the toilet . they do this so they do not have to take the KEY , We are constantly asking Guests to not do this ! The hostel has a great CCTV system to make sure our security is top notch !!!
