“The coolest place i ever stayed at!!”
It was definitely amazing, i went to Khao Lak for only one reason.. i wanted to dive.. and monkey dive hostel gives you that feeling from the time you arrive.. there is information about sea animals painted on the walls all around!! Super CLEAN, great staff and peaceful at night.
I dived with seven seas which belongs to the same owner of the hostel.. again fantastic experience with great dive instructors..
Over all... excellent and worth every cent!

I travel often - mostly to Europe and SE Asia. Stayed in many hostels - from boutique styles to ones where you are not sure if there's running water. However; my worries were gone instantly when I arrived at Monkey Dive. The vibe, the style, the aura and the sense of community was felt right away while I was checking in!! I felt right at home! I was able to stay in the private "seahorse" room and it was such a pleasure - didn't have AC but the fan will cool you off!! The community room is the area to be hanging out at! You can play pool, watch a movie or have a few nice cold beers. My biggest concern about any hostel is the bathroom. I was beyond impressed with how super clean the community bathrooms were!! My overall experience was beyond amazing. This is the only place you should consider staying while in Khao Lak!!

I came here for one night but decided to stay here for 6 days which i spent in Khao Lak. It is great place for relax at center of the city, staff is very friendly and helpfull. I stayed in dorm, but it was very comfotable room. Great spacious common area. Clean and quiet. And great design. You can leave your luggage and use safe for free. Thanks guys for nice time!
“Great place to stay”
Not much to say about this hostel other than "why stay anywhere else?"
Great staff, reasonably priced, fun set up, clean, tidy, nice rooms, brilliant atmosphere for relaxing and meeting people. Shame we couldn't stay longer! Cheers guys, Simon and Alex

“Excellent accommodation great vibe”
This is one of the nicest places I've stayed on my trip so far.
Me and 2 friends stayed for 3 nights sharing 2 double/single rooms. Very basic, clean and stylish.
The workers are great and very friendly, common area is awesome too and everyone staying there was lovely. I think most people were on diving courses whereas we were just chilling for a few days before heading on.
