    Blanco is the only hostel on Railey. Met some amazing people and had the best time. Kept extending my stay - pool is COLD and refreshing and super convenient you can buy food here. Staff is helpful. Not super clean and could use some updating as well as better mattresses and bedding

    I had a nice time at Blanco. I do not usually stay in party hostels but I enjoyed my 3 days here. I met a lot of great people, enjoyed the pool and lounge area as well as the bar and it’s many options. The rooms are average, the beds are not very comfortable especially the bedsheet that is used. There was however ample space for storing one’s backpack and clothes. There are food options on-site and I loved the Muay Thai fight and fire show.

    Great facilities! Has a pool and lounge area with great music day and night. A nice place to relax at in the afternoon or night if you run out of things to do at Railay. The steps leading up to the hostel though...going up and down was a pain.

    Hostel was quiet when I was there due to low season and the full moon party happening. Room was a little run down but don’t really spend a lot of time in them anyway. Friendly staff. Great pool area Lots of work happening on the beach due to low season

    Great hostel for a few nights as has an amazing view and great pool area and bar, however I did not find it the most sociable as most people were travelling in groups, and I stayed for a week so there were some things that I could have got past for a couple days, but became unbearable by the end of the week - the shower/toilet combo was difficult to manage with 8 people, and the beds felt sticky and damp so hard to sleep, in fact the whole room was damp! Everything else was great though!

    Due to the very reasonable price, I would probably stay here again. The room had a killer view, but there were few issues: I paid upon check-in to avoid the hassle later, but that backfired because they tried to charge me when I checked out, then made me wait for 15 minutes while they attempted to locate the exchange on their CCTV. They also "required" holding my passport during my stay. The on-site bar bumps music well after 10PM. If you want a party hostel, this is the place.

    Friendly staff, no hot water in the showers, aiming for a party vibe but falling well short, average location, poor privacy.

    Booked & paid our reservation in advance but staff informed us “Hostelworld” made an error with the amount of beds available and our party of three were separated into different rooms. This would have been fine except the beds in our rooms were damp, full of sand & not swept. It was so dirty we left early and paid for a different resort despite blanco still making us pay cash for a night we were not staying there. Poor business and non-accommodating staff. Food is also more expensive there
