Property Description

Railay's first and only hostel!

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 bungalows 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 recommend booking more than 2 or 3 nights as Railay is famous for its 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.

Please note, big group bookings made 1-3 days prior to arriving can not be guaranteed to be in the same room when booking the 4 or 6 bed dorms. Please email us after the booking and we will try our best to put everyone together.

We also do not accept group bookings if the beds are not full, ie, 3 people booking 4 beds in a 4 bed dorm. Please only book the number of beds you require.

Events every night and amazing views. 100% recommend to anyone looking for a place thats got everything and Railay is beautiful and not to be missed. Just book early! Or try their other place social quarters, its next door and everyone hangs out at the pool.

    It was a very nice experience in the Blanco Hostel, nice view, exciting program every evening/night and very welcoming staff. Would recommend to check it out when you visit Railay Beach.

    Definitely a party hostel, you will need a good sleep after a couple of nights here! Overall a great atmosphere though, really easy to meet people. They take your passport when you check in, which I didn’t like as most places just take a copy.

    I was specifically curious because I saw before my stay several people comment that the hostel is dirty. For a hostel, it’s not unacceptable. But yes, compared to the standard many other hostels have set it’s more dirty. Underneath my bed I could see old trash from past guests and lots of dust and dirt and hair. Also, the area to lock your bag is underneath the bed and it’s clearly not cleaned at all. Other than this, the place is great

    An excellent place to meet people in a great location for day adventures and also some partying. This hostel is great at hosting fun events and encouraging interaction. The beds are comfortable but there's really no privacy and the bathrooms are plenty sanitary but not exactly nice.

    Has a pool which is nice, rooms were average. the door to our shower wouldn’t close, so that was annoying, and bedside lighting didn’t work. One very lovely staff member, a tall blonde girl, she was SO LOVELY.

    Nice privacy as it was out of the way. Good for young people who are travelling and want to meet others. Felt a bit like love island. Activities and nights out were good, right for certain people and not for others. One of the men was a bit abrupt #chillout

    I had an opened condom, some used gum and a used earplug on the ledge next to my bed when I checked in. Was pretty gross, and my standards aren’t very high at all
