    Railay itself is a cool place and this hostel just topped my stay there off! Met some cool people and all the staff were helpful and social as well! Done the blanco boat party through the hostel and had a right laugh doing that while seeing all the cool sights around the place, along with other activities like the bar crawl available! I’m a solo traveler and this is the perfect place to meet new people and explore Railay, always a good atmosphere and easy to get to everywhere from the hostel!

    Blanco is your budget-friendly, solo traveler and/or fun option for Railay. They put on events each day of the week and have a welcoming atmosphere for travelers. I was there alone and easily made friends at the pool and at their nightly events. The staff is awesome and the views are great. I think 2 nights is plenty here, but you should check it out if you can.

    Best hostel ever! Great staff, clean rooms, awesome pool. Wish breakfast was included but you can’t win them all. It overlooks a gorgeous beach and there is so much beauty in Railay! Yes, the stairs are annoying but they should not deter you from staying here (I just thought if it as a little forced exercise on my vacation). I was a solo traveler and immediately met people- atmosphere was AMAZING. They have great activities planned & the boat tour was really fun too. Would 100% stay here again

    Railay East is a mangrove coast, not a beach you can swim in, and there’s a HUGE staircase to get to Blanco. But once you’re up there you don’t need to leave, there’s a gorgeous view, a pool, a bar, and a restaurant. They host activities every day/night. I did the buffet, the boat tour, and the Muai Thai - all were fun but I wouldn’t pay 1000B for the boat tour again. Feels like a resort, easy to make friends, highly recommend this place!

    Blanco is beautiful and offers amazing views of the ocean from the pool. There are plenty of social activities to do and the staff are helpful. It is relatively expensive to stay here (as everything is on Railay) and I was disappointed that they charge for water. There are no curtains on the dorm beds either, which was odd. If I had been in a partying mood I think I would have enjoyed it more, but I unfortunately got sick. Be advised that they play EDM music pretty loud at night.

    Excellent staff and lovely clean hostel. The bar & restaurant staff were especially helpful with my medications as this needs to be kept refrigerated. They made sure this happened, and sorted my ice packs for me ahead of my next journey! :-)

    Blanco is in cool location, with a decent pool and veranda. I also slept pretty well in the 10 person dorm—everyone went to bed by midnight and were pretty quiet. That said, there was only one shower and toilet for that room, and the bar did play EDM late. No free water or breakfast. Free towel and people were friendly. Also took your passport as a deposit which I found strange.
