    Favourite hostel so far! Staff was very helpful, caring and just a pleasure to be around. Invited us to chill with them, always asked about our day, gave tips, and organised a free bbq for all guests to celebrate their opening! Initially booked 3 nights - turned into 9 :D

    Our stay at here was my fav out of our whole month in Thailand. It all comes down to the staff. The owners & staff are some of the kindest & best people you will meet. They had us smiling every time we walked in & out of the hostel. We planned to stay 2 nights and ended up extending to 7! The rooms are clean & modern. Beds are the comfiest I have had yet & everything just feels fresh and new. We also got to experience the bbq the staff put on for all the guests which was so special! :)

    The hostel is great. Brand new, a nice chilling area with hamacs and spots to sit down, a kitchen available for cooking with free breakfast and lots of space outside. That’s the good point. The bad point is that there is no air con in the rooms and that’s the reason I left the hostel. It gets hotter in the room than outside (over 35 Celsius degrees outside) all my clothes got completely wet because of the humidity and could hardly sleep at night because of that. Definitely go there in winter tho

    Very Good

    Live in Leaf Hostel was very basic but would be good for a short stay as it’s great value for money. The main issue for us was having no air conditioning in the room - we ended up cutting short our stay as it was just too hot. All in all was a basic but clean hostel - it is about a 10 minute walk from Sairee Beach.

    This is a new hostel and needs to iron out some creases, but it has potential. Well located 10min from the beach, has a kitchen and inexpensive. The beds in the 6 bed dorm are actually just 1 giant bunkbed, so you'll be sleeping in the same bed as 2 other people and the fan didn't reach the majority of the room, so it was absolutely baking. The owners didn't have the best English so it was a little difficult to get info. No lockers

    If you like to be waken up by dog barking just outside your room every morning at 6:30 am, this is the place for you ;-) However, the common areas were very clean and cozy - the staff were polite but not helpful at all. The dorm was as good as you would expect for the price you pay - there was a bathroom, and a bed with clean sheets. Due to no air con the room was extremely hot. Over all it’s an okay place for the value of the money, but we found it very difficult to get a good night’s sleep.
