About Pineapple Guesthouse


Catering to the demands of the budget travelers and those after a good value, this friendly and homey guest house is located on the southern end of Karon and within walking distance of a marvelous beach. This property is made up of 20 guestrooms, each one well-decorated and adequately furnished. All rooms come fitted with air conditioning, an in-room safe, cable TV, large fridge, free Wi-Fi access, and an en-suite bathroom with a hot shower. Ten of the king rooms have been upgraded in the summer of 2013 and are now designated as superior, and all come with balconies. Standard twins, kings, and triples are available. Most of the rooms are up two flights of stairs, so if you are elderly, infirm, or travelling with young children, please bear this in mind. For those on the tightest of budgets, there's a ten-bed mixed dorm with many fans and air conditioning. The in-house restaurant, Pineapple Café, is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and serves up great local and Western cuisine. Just within the vicinity are a number of restaurants and sites for guests to venture out to. This family-run place offers clean, comfortable rooms at a great value, and the hospitable staff will do their best to ensure an enjoyable stay.

Very nice and helpful staff! They even organize and buy your ticket for transfers to other islands which takes a load off. Situated close to the beach and to many restaurants. A short walk to a market as well.

Wonderful staff
Great place for a great price! The two owners were so lovely and helpful. They went out of their way numerous times to help us out. They give great tips and advice. We stayed in the deluxe room and it was very spacious and clean. They clean the rooms everyday. The deluxe rooms are all on the second floor with balconies so you can dry your wet items easily. We stayed 4 nights but could have easily stayed longer. They provide beach towels as well and straw mats and umbrellas! About a 5 min walk to the beach. If you stay here, try pim's kitchen for lunch one day! Garlic shrimp there is to die for! :)

Nice place, nice owners
Owners, Guests, location
The Pineapple Guesthouse is a lovely hostel run by a nice British guy and his wife who will happily assist you with everything you need. The dorm beds are basic, but good. The shower and toilet are in the room (of course behind closed doors), as is a big fridge where the travelers can put their stuff in. Wifi works just fine. 7Eleven and ATM is just around the corner, as is the beach and some nice bars. I also met lovely people staying there - really enjoyed my stay and would definitely come back!

Pineapple Guesthouse Stay
Friendly and helpful staff. Great value for money for budget travellers. Close proximity to food and beach.
It was a pleasant stay. Although I booked king size bed but i got twin bed instead, the guesthouse owner apologize and allow for late check out. The air-cond can be place nearer to the bed for faster cooling. Overall it is a very good choice for budget traveller.
