      Mo and Mind are amazing, they are welcoming and friendly that make the place much more cozy. I went with the idea of staying a couple of days and finally I stayed one week. Is moder, decoreted with new style and dive info, really clean, big and the beds are good. The environment is international and comfortable and friendy but absolutely not noisy. Is not far away from the center and 7' from the beach and they have motos to rent for moving around which is a convenient option to enjoy your days in khao lak.

      I really enjoyed the location as it was off the main road so was very quiet at night. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The place was clean and comfortable. The room had a/c and there was enough room for four people to stay comfortably. I would stay again if I go back to Khao Lak.

      This time no water at all”

      I was in need of a shower, and after paying for this room, was told there was no water at all and no refund was forthcoming. How do you run a place like this? How is this place so highly rated when I had to wait over 30 minutes to check out while the attendant worked out. They spend more time enjoying the facilities than the guests.

      Overrated by a large margin”

      I showed up, was shown around by the female employee, and later when I wanted to take a hot shower, there was hardly a sprinkle coming out. I spoke to this with a male employee, and he said “look, there is hot water” as the few drops dripped down the shower head. The rest of the day I was largely ignored by employees and most other guests. Nothing special at all about this place.

      Stay away! Book elsewhere! ”

      Rude rude rude rude STAFF! Need to replace everyone except the house keepers! They were the only staff that greeted you and that were actually working. The female receptionist had a permanent RBF, and never ever greeted you and she always rolled her eyes at me. Other receptionist and manager weren’t helpful either. The Zleep Hotel on the main road books private singles/doubles with breakfast cheaper than this dump of a hostel. I’ve never in my current 6 months of traveling had such a bad experience. Trust me, don’t waste your money with this place.

      We stayed in a private room here during our transit from dive boat to Koh Lipe. It was good value for what we got, though there are private rooms in Khao Lak that cost the same but have air con and in-room bathrooms. The facilities are very nice though, and we can’t comment on breakfast because our shuttle left too early.

      Not too far from beach. Facilities are clean. Conveniently located in Nang Tong Beach area where the long distance buses normally drop you off. Walking distance to Khao-Lak Lam Ru National Park ! Staff is amazing. Just one minor thing...private fan room's window could be a bit wider and larger to let more outside air in.

      This place is great. Awesome modern fresh interior, very inspirational if you are a diver, great stuff and loads loads loads of cozy social place. However, had really hard time sleeping there. Air con has been way too cold and a gint towel instead of a sheet to cover in the night didnt really work either. Heard that from other travelers too

      Loved the place, very clean, cool and comfortable. Excellent common areas, with pool table, garden and even cool hats to play with! Great atmosphere! Very quiet at night also. Staff is super helpful to rent bikes, excursions (we went to the surin islands though them and everything was perfect!) and to buy tickets (we also contracted though them to go to koh lipe). Lot's of restaurants, shops, banks, and everything you need in the area. There's one beach you can walk to, then you need to rent a bike or take a taxi, the staff will help you with information. I would stay here again!

      Stayed at monkey dive for 3 nights at the Female dorm. - Room was clean, and bed was comfy. There's a bar in the outdoor area. Staff was helpful and informative. The only thing was that, there were only two shower rooms for ladies, had to wait for a while when everybody's back for shower after day trips. - Location: Located in a small alley next to the main road, very convenient to move around while not noisy at night. - Can book day trips and Diveaboard trips at a relatively budget price at the front desk, better deal than what I found at the agencies. All in all, monkey dive is a budget and comfortable option for backpackers and budget travelers staying in khao lak!

      The place was easy to find and its located just in the center. Scooter rentals near by, also 7/11 and McDonalds :) Just a bit away from the main road so it was quiet at night and if you sit in front you can enjoy the atmosphere with nature sounds. Rooms are clean and plenty of space. A mattress is a bit hard but this is common in Thailand.
