                      Great place to stay before a dive trip”

                      I stayed in a private room with a fan. It was simple but comfortable. The bed was firm and the fan worked well. They only give you a blanket which was too hot at the start of the night and perfect by the morning. A sheet would have been nice as someone who needs to sleep with something covering them. The front desk staff was super helpful and the general vibe was great. For the price it was spectacular!!

                      Spacious dorm room, easy access to the beach, plenty of local restaurants nearby, easy access from the main road. The bathroom was not very clean though, and without any window, dorm room was mucky and smells of mildew.

                      Amazing hostel with great people and facilities”

                      beds, location, facilities

                      Monkey Dive Hostel is a clean and lovely hostel in the heart of Khao Lak. The beds were among the most comfortable I ever slept in in Thailand, and the design of the hostel is pretty cool with the underwater theme. Met a lot of fellow divers here and some lovely non-diving people. The staff is super helpful and friendly and will go out of their way to make you feel at home. In the hostel there are several lockers for your belongings, a fridge, a kitchen that can be used by all guests and even a pool table for some entertainment. Wifi is free and good. There is a supermarket right down the road and tons of shops, Dive shops, ATMs, and pharmacies in close range. The Nang Thong beach is about a 10 minute walk away, if you want to check out the surrounding beaches you can get a good scooter for a good price at the hostel. Khao Lak is not exactly a backpacker hotspot, but if you are travelling alone and want to meet some people, I would recommend this place. I stayed at Walker’s Inn last year, probably the only other real backpacker hostel in the area, but Monkey Dive is definitely better facility and location wise, as it is more in the heart of the town and the beds and showers are in much better condition.

                      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!

                      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.

                      Everything was great

                      Great hostel!! It was clean, comfortable, and modern. Good prices for Khao Lak. Booked a great trip to Similan Islands through them and it was by far the lowest price I found. The staff are rad and they're SO helpful. Rad common room/patio. One of the best hostels I've stayed in in SE Asia. Khao Lak could really use more places like this! Complaints: get a sign on the main street guys! It was hard to find the first day and didn't show up on Google. And tea next to the coffee stand would be lovely! (Not really a complaint.)

                      So stylish and cozy hostel. Shared bathroom but always clean. The location is so convenient to get to other places in Phang Nga. All the staff are super friendly and helpful. I like the atmosphere which made me feel like I was staying in my friend's house. Over there we can also make friends with the ppl who love diving or surfing. Have been there for only two nights but it was a great time for me. Monkey Dive Hostel was one of the things those made this trip in Phang Nga very memorable. I like this hostel very much and would like to go back there again.

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.

Rooms and shared bathrooms are clean and included is access to a kitchenette with a microwave, fridge, hot water and condiments. It is located at the centre of Khao Lak near restaurants, tourist agencies and supermarkets and we arrived and departed from nearby public bus stops.

                      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.

                      Great location just off the main road in Khao Lak. The dorm rooms are spacious and clean. It is not a very social hostel. Would be nice if they had a better outside area not just a few plastic chairs, looks like there used to be a bar but its closed now. Would be nice if they provided breakfast as well. Ok for a few nights

                      I was hesitant to stay here because I thought the rooms would be too hot without air conditioning. The rooms were actually a great temperature, no need for a/c. The building is shaded and it's set away from the hectic traffic of Khao Lak so it felt like a peaceful place yet close enough to the main street. It's one of the best value stays in the area.

                      It seems that guys know what they do and why. The place has a spirit (in comparison with most of Thai places I visited during my 4W trip). The only disadvantage is lack of A/C in private rooms which in most of the nights during high season might be difficult. However, if you consider this and prepare you body for it, you get calm and nice accommodation in the center of Khao Lak with everything in walking distance.
