Each of our 4, 6 and 8 bed rooms are all surrounding our pool and garden area and our private bungalows have sea views. Our pool bar closes at 10:30pm so a good nights sleep isn't an issue.

    Blanco Hideout was INCREDIBLE!! The location, facilities, atmosphere and everything about blanco was amazing - not to mention the activities/events they offer and their banging playlist (best music ever)!! The staff were incredibly welcoming and so helpful which made my stay one to remember. The dorms were clean and comfortable with the most breathtaking view of beautiful railay to wake up to. The hostel has everything you need and I couldn’t recommend it enough! Thank you so much.

    we absolutely loved our stay at the blanco hideout hostel. we had originally booked to stay for 4 nights and ended up staying 4 more. the absolute best place in railay to socialize and meet people, the atmosphere is great. they facilitate sick activities that are well organized. the pool is actually coldddd which is so refreshing and nice. I recommend doing the boat tour that takes you around the islands, definitely a highlight of our trip! shoutout to Georgia & Connor #amazingstaff

    My stay here was amazing, especially thanks to the great staff! Everybody is so welcoming and you get to meet a bunch of cool people! The dorms are clean and there’s many spots to chill around the hostel! All the restaurants, beaches and bars are max a 15 min walk away! I extended my stay twice, it’s the spot to be if you’re in Railey!

    The best place to stay, really nice dorm rooms and cleaners come in regularly. Staff are all so nice, railway is so small you get to know everyone quickly however can feel a bit quiet on a night out sometimes. But had a great time could easily end up staying a while!

    Decent if you’re looking for a party hostel to be out regularly. You have to trek up a big flight of stairs to reach the hostel which can be a struggle if you’ve got your backpack with you to start with. The security lockers under the beds are pretty pointless as they all connect so if the person next to yours leaves their side unlocked then your stuff can easily be reached. That wasn’t really the vibe of the place though, everyone was nice. Toilets/ showers are a bit run down

    Amazing view and pool, that’s the only pros. One member of staff was lovely, the others who were men, were cold towards you and couldn’t entertain an excited monkey. The facilities were poor but the beds were ok. Don’t think I’ll visit again.

    The pool is a great feature and there is also a bar and restaurant which is great but the pool area and rooms are very run down. The rooms and bathrooms are unclean, the aircon barely worked, the shower was pretty much broken. The power also went out one morning for a good few hours which meant no air con and the doors had to be broken into as there is an electric locking system! we received no form of apology for this. Overpriced for what you get. Railay beach is an amazing location though!
