    Stayed at Lantern for initially 1 night on my way to Pai... ended up staying for a week!!! Pak, Tong, Ching and Charlie were absolutely lovely hosts! They were so friendly and always had a cold drink ready in the fridge when we needed it! They took us to karaoke, proper local markets, night bazar, Zoe in Yellow for a night out, taught us Thai card games..... and my air conditioned double bed was sooooo comfortable! I had the best night sleep every single night :) Thanks so much guys!

    Lantern house went above and beyond when I had a sever allergic reaction. They helped get me an ambulance and to the hospital safely. I can’t thank them enough for all their help and concern. We were even able to go back the next day after check out to make the flower floating lanterns they were doing workshops on free of charge! :) Excellent hostel!

    The host went above and beyond to help us throughout our stay. Nothing was to much trouble, helped us book excursions and also helped out getting medication when I was too unwell to leave the room, due to an infected bite

    Friendly and helpful staff - helped me book elephant jungle sanctuary - they also kept my bag at the hostel when I rented a bike and drove the mae hong son loop which was very nice not to have to bring my big bag with me on the bike. Located just outside the old city. Not a very big hostel. Light breakfast provided

    I don’t know if they have dorms. I stayed in a single room with en-suite bathroom/shower. Cheap but very basic. The lounge is essentially a partially covered patio, so not air conditioned. The owner is super friendly and loves to chat with her guests.

    Good central location and very helpful staff! Not the cleanest hostel I've stayed in and breakfast wasn't the best but you cannot complain for the price! Staff were so helpful, organised our taxi to Pai and day trips, recommended the best places to see not trying to rip you off! Bed was comfy

    Gross hostel. We had multiple red worms coming from the bathroom drain when we showered. Also had a huge cockroach come from the bathroom to the room. Room and bathroom not clean. Comfortable bed. Hostel atmosphere poor-feels like you are in someone’s yard because the owners never leave. The dog Happy is super cute. Smells like cat urine and poo in the common areas.
