      nice clean but dark room”

      Room and staff were nice. Room was clean; hallways are a bit tattered. GREAT massage in the spa; restaurant small but pleasant. Next time would ask for a room on the street side which might have more light. Very central location...a block from the airtrain to the airport.

      Old building, nicely renovated with lovely artistic touches but rooms very small. The fan rooms with windows at the front would be very noisy and the air-con rooms were windowless. Only shared facilities (spotless). No idea what the competition in town is like.

      Great renovated heritage hostel”

      Best of a budget stay. Best location on the small main street of Ranong town, surrounded by interesting colonial architecture and vintage shop fittings. Great renovation of an original terrace building, cement spaces downstairs and hardwood upstairs. My clean and cozy room has windows that open out with nice street view. There aren't no mosquito net on the windows though, so not a good idea to keep them opened at night. Shared bathroom facility is also clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend this place.

      Pleasant layover ”

      Nicely styled retro/vintage chic hostel. Convenient location for mini markets, shops and restaurants in central Ranong. Communal areas upstairs very pleasant and clean. Hot water and kettle downstairs. Rooms lack windows but fine if you're only sleeping there. Within walking distance of decent restaurant (Farmhouse and Sunny Side Up) and travel agent (Pon's Place). Short walk to hot spa (free!) or bus station if you don't mind crossing a main road. Ranong not much to look at, more a transit town, but this hostel is great if you're passing through, especially if you get it at a discounted price, off season.

      location,clean,nice atomsphere

      I booked my room in November 2014 for my single nights stay on 2 January 2015. When I arrived they had no listing for me , that no room had been assigned. So with my assistance We looked up there e-mail system to confirm that I had booked and paid for my room. The front office guy spoke ok English if you kept simple. next he said "take a seat as He will and go make up a room" This was happening at 6 pm in the evening and in most hotels all rooms are made ready before 2 pm. Well I choose the room with windows over looking the road. The level of noise from the road was ok . It was the noise from the room next which what woke me up. The bathroom area is clean and roomy. I was surprised it was a common bathroom area for men and women. Lots of privacy. The street outside is great and in the early morning I went for wonderful walk around near by streets and up the hill to look at the sun rise.

      Please stop asking Me to do over reviews that I have already done!!! Do You not bother to check this before demanding them? Apparently not! in the future I will just ignore Your annoying, persistent emails, and just keep deleting them until You finally give up!!! and I only selected family fun so I can send this. The only thing in My opinion that Ranong is good for is a place to get a room to help with visa run, and/or making sure to be on time for the Train from Chumpon to Bangkok

      Great spot for the night ahead of a quick Visa run”

      Great staff, close to public transport, close to food

      Came to Ranong to do a visa run, and really happy to have stayed at Luang Poj. The friendly staff mapped out our trip into Myanmar the next day and onward travel all the way to Koh Tao. They also had some great suggestions for food, and we managed to find a great place just a 5 minute walk away with live music. WIth more time, probably would have spent a couple of extranights here. Had an awesome experience!

      Friendly staff, lost of restaurants around, great stay

      We stayed for one night so we could organise an extra 15 day visa. The staff helped us organise this and made it very easy for us. We were not looking foward to sharing a bathroom but they were so clean and I think we were the only ones staying there at the time. Staff gave me the wifi password without even having to ask for it and they were so friendly - helping us find a place for dinner. It was wet season so was great that we didn't have to go far to find food =) great one night stay - Not too much in Ranong but perfect for what we needed. They have also decorated it very funky! Each room has different theme. Very cool.

      location, great owner, nice room

      our stay at the hotel was for an in between time before we went to one of the local islands. the rooms are well built and quite clean. orginally we were told we were going to be getting a fan room and when we arrived we were given a room with a/c! the purple room was great. our first time we took a taxi out we did it through the drowsy rabbit looking front desk guy who we feel ripped us off by us paying him 200 baht for the pair of us for a ride to the pier. when we arrived t the pier, the taxi guy charged the 3rd guy in our ride 60 baht. it just bothered us. when we came back from our island trip and wanted a place to hold on to our bags for the day before our bus came, we went back to this hotel and ran in to the owner who was a great guy and held onto our stuff and allowed us to use the facilities free of charge for the day. very nice owner who cares very much for his work and building a quality hostel. would recommend staying there, best hostel in ranong. just watch out for a guy that looks like a sleepy rabbit.

      Good deal hostel.”

      Clean, stylish hostel.

      We arrived from Phuket by bus and this stopped really away from the hostel so you have to get a songthaw to the market area and then walk five minutes. The hostel room was clean as well the shared bathroom. Ranong is a small city but the street where the hostel is located seams to be the main one for tourist aiming to go to Kho Phayam, so you can find there some places for dining or having a coffee. We you are ready to head to Phayam you can catch a moto taxi for to the pier which may be located a couple of kilometres away. There are no money changer stalls, we were told that to get baht we have to change money at the banks.

      Friendly staff, central location

      We were on our way to Koh Phayam and needed to stay in Ronong one night. This hotel worked as it was right in town, having easy access to bank, restaurants and purchasing ferry tickets. The hotel has 8 rooms. You share a bathroom facilities which we found to be no problem. There are no windows in the rooms so bring an alarm clock if you don't want to sleep in! The bright green light on the air conditioner was annoying. Quiet rooms were away from the street. Owners very pleasant and have done a lot of work restoring this old hotel. It has character.

      2nd visit, still a great cheap hotel.”

      Modern, clean rooms

      We really like this little hotel on the main road in Ranong, its on the road of the sunday night market which is really good. The hotel is very modern with a shabby chic theme and the shared bathrooms are spotless and stylish. The staff are helpful but a little bit clumsy, for example, they take your passport for half an hour to verify your visa but when we came down to collect it the guy was asleep and our passport was on the reception desk next to the door onto the main street, it could have easily been taken! But apart from that we were really pleased with the hotel and would definitely stay again.

      Although Ranong isn't the nicest place this hostel was great! We booked air con at the same price as fan but there is no air con, the rooms are perfect, clean, modern and very shabby chic, and the shared bathrooms are clean and also very stylish with very little use as there were only 2 or 3 rooms being used when we stayed. I will definitely go back for my next visa run
