Property Description

A fun and sociable hostel located on Railay East with a panoramic view over the beach and surrounding mountains. Featuring a pool, two bars, restaurant and common areas for sunbathing and socialising. Blanco is the only hostel in Railay so it's easy to meet fellow backpackers. All of our rooms are air conditioned. Free wifi throughout the property. Blanco Hideout Railay is a resort style hostel. Each of our 4 and 6 bed rooms are all surrounding our pool and garden area and our private bunglaows have sea views. Our pool bar closes at 10pm so a good nights sleep isn't an issue.

All of our rooms are equipped with A/C, showers and toilets, power sockets, reading lights and massive lockers for each of the beds. We provide towels and a proper comfy duvet for free.

We have a Playstation and Netflix area for lazy days also.

We recommend booking more than 2 or 3 nights as Railay is famous for it's white beaches and insane rock climbing. We have many different rock climbing packages to chose from with the most experience guides that are licensed and insured. Our staff know all the inside info so be sure to ask us at reception for all the best beaches, viewpoints, jungle treks, kayaking and other cool things to do in Railay. ATM's, mini marts are all within walking distance of our hostel.

    By far one of the best hostels I stayed in South of Thailand. Great atmosphere, staff were friendly. I stayed in 8 bedded dorm which was the highest room and had an incredible view over the sea with a spacious balcony. If you are lucky you will see monkeys swinging int he trees! Swimming pool clean and so nice with pool bar too. There is a restaurant attached to the hostel, perfect for breakfast/brunch/lunch. Would highly recommend.

    If you go to Thailand you should go to Railay, and if you go to Railay you HAVE to stay at Blanco. Great location and views, fun events and parties, and an amazing staff! Special shoutout to Celine, Lauren and Steve who made me feel at home during my stay. I definitely recommend Blanco to everyone, and I'm sure I'll go back some day!

    Myself and my friend were here for 4 nights - really cool hostel w chill vibes - we stayed in the 10 bed mixed dorm - totally fine, met nice friends, rooms a bit dark and no windows but nice bathroom. Pool area and deck is unreal, staff are great craic! Great hostel if you wanna meet people, they organise buffets, pub crawls etc. Only downside of hostel really is the 1 million steps to the top, killer on the legs and scary when drunk but worth it for the view on the sun deck. Would def return!

    The air-condition al does not work properly, so you have to turn on the fan which is additional in the room. Because of that we couldn't really sleep, and it was really warm in the bungalow
