Probably the best hostel on earth !


Was nice to experience staying in a bamboo hut for a couple of nights, however I think more than that it would get a bit boring (but that's just me!). Nice views from the pier, manager was great and chatty and the food being excellent. With it being bamboo huts it doesn't feel too secure, but the good vibe about the place eases it slightly. Would recommend for a couple of nights to have total peace from everything else, but if you can't handle the wilderness even slightly this isn't for you!


Olie was amazing! We had a wonderful stay and will defeninitly come back next time we're in Thailand! It's perfect if you're looking for somewhere relaxing away from a party atmosphere. Highly recommend !

This hostel was AMAZING. One of the best I have stayed in. The owner and staff are super friendly and very helpful. They offered us day packages to do excursions and were honest about what places are worth going to and spending g the money on. We stayed in the dorms; bathrooms and the dorm are super clean and nice! This hostel is definitely off the beaten path a bit, but it was perfect for a few days to chill out after leaving Kho Phi Phi! Also, food here was delicious!! Highly recommended!!


Bananas is the perfect place to go if you're looking for some solitude. They've got everything: island views, jungle vibes, bioluminescent plankton and delicious Thai food. You really feel like you're in paradise. It's quite a ways out, so be prepared to spend some cash getting there but also know you won't want to leave and that there's plenty to do once you arrive. Definitely recommend.
