              Positive: +Really clean rooms, all spaces (room, bathroom, common spaces) felt really clean and tidy. +Comfortable beds and real duvets. +The staff were so nice and sweet, you could get help with anything. (Really nice) + Good location. Really close to the local market, several mini marts and plenty of good restaurants. Not far to walk to/from the beach. . Everything was really good, there's actually nothing bad to say about this place, however, it was a bit far from the center of Khao Lak, but this didn't really matter, because everything you need is available at Bang Niang.

              It's front of bangnyang market. Bit far from khaolak center but you can rent motor bike cheap price and takes about 10 min to there. Stay calm and clean place and explore khaolak. Host is very nice, room is alway well treated. You can order payed breakfast one day advance. And can book snokling cheaper than other place. Recommand!

              We found the area overpriced, and the owner gave us rides to White Sand beach in her car, and back. She also took a traveler who had an ear infection to the doctor. She graciously keeps a supply of instant coffee, snacks and bananas for her guests, speaks good English, and is really lovely and charming.

              The place is new and the location is the best. Close to the market and 7-11. Dive shops in every direction. It's a little bit loud because it's tile and metal; but everything else is perfect!

              Booked for 2 nights but ended up staying for 4. Really clean, daily cleaning. Suggest booking 6 bed dorm since it has a balcony and view. The 4 bed room is faced to a wall. They have free coffee and tea. Staff really nice and helpful with everything. Restaurants and main road near. Not that many people in Khao Lak right now so be prepared that you might be alone.

              Ich bin letztendlich für sechs Tage geblieben! Die Atmosphäre ist gemütlich, das Hostel hat ein sechser und ein vierer Zimmer. Es ist sauber und Gift ist sehr hilfsbereit!!! Hat mich mal auf einen Markt weiter entfernt mitgenommen und einiges dazu erklärt. Im sechser Zimmer könnte der Spind größer sein, Backpack passt nicht rein, es gibt auch keinen Haartrockner und der Weg zum Strand dauert locker 25 min zu Fuß bei Hitze. Also man braucht schon einen Roller, verleiht sie auch.
