Hey! Beach Hostel | 606 Moo 3 T. Saladan Koh Lanta Krabi 81150, 81150 Ko Lanta, Thailand
if it’s too hot for you to walk from the port, don’t take a tuk-tuk while you’re still inside the port. a tuktuk driver tried to charge me THB200 for a distance of 2km. I ended up paying THB50 outside. I’m pretty sure you can haggle that some more, but it was too got that day, i just wanted to get to the hostel fast.
it’s not the cheapest, but i don’t remember finding a hostel cheaper than this at the time (or possibly i wanted to get away from where the party bars were). the hostel itself was efficient. what i didn’t like was i had to walk through some sand to get to the bathroom, but the bar by the beach made up for it. you also get a discount from the bar since you’re a guest.
and the beach front was perfect. if i were a hardcore beach person, i would spend the whole day in front of that beach
