Comfy big room, great location, great value for money”

I went during Covid time so a whole building was only for me. The first floor is the famous gelato shop but they closed during this time. Will definitely come back. The key will come as 2 keys; one for your room and one for the hostel building. At night, they will lock the building so everytime you leave at night, you have to lock the building Room: - just renovated 3 years ago (the room looks exactly like the picture!!!) - big room with a cute sofa next to the window - spacious bathroom - small cute balcony - there’s a bloom outside the room so you can always clean your room from the sand whenever you want I feel really comfortable like I stayed at home! Location: - right on the walking street - less than 1 minute walk to Pattaya beach, very convenient - 10 mins walk to 7-11 - a few steps to restaurants Staff: - The maid was really friendly and helpful - No hostel staff, just the maid during the day time. Night time they said there will send the staff from Vapii resort (same owner) to sleep down stair to accompany the guests Value for money: Definitely worth it! There are a lot of creepy old expensive rooms in Lipe but this place is way better One thing that needs to be improved: - the kettle is rusty. The hostel might have to replace with the new one

Great hostel, friendly stuff, excellent food”

We were hesitant to book this place at first, since it was recently added. But we are so glad we did. From the moment we met the stuff (which is all managed by a group of super-friendly ladies), and saw our family room, our holidays were simply fabulous. We've literary checked all of the hostels and budget accommodation options on Koh Lipe island, and I can state that this was the only place which didn't have molds or was humid and dark. In fact, it was opposite - really cosy, clean room, well maintained and it had everything we need for our stay. As well as nice view from the balcony. The location is superb, right on the middle of Walking Street, less than 100 meters from Pattaya beach. We are so happy we found this little gem, and I'm almost blaming myself for giving up this place, but at the same time I'm pretty sure, it will be pre-booked in advance. Their Italian style coffee is great, as well as super delicious French waffles and real Italian gelato. And they serve amazing breakfast with a discount for their guests. Thank you and we are looking forward to staying here again!

Lovely guest house in walking street”

This guest house is located above the only Gelato shop on the island. The location is very good, close to everything like few steps away from Elephant cafe where we had our breakfast every morning. Few steps to Pattaya beach, pharmacy, restaurants, bars, and short walk to sunrise beach. The place is clean, hot shower, hair dryer, balcony, ac, wifi, etc. Very good for the price. There is an ATM machine right out side the shop. (Krungsri Bank) Staffs were friendly. The only minor thing is loud music from a Beach club on Pattaya beach on some night from 8or9pm to midnight. There is nothing this guest house can do because all resorts and hotels around Pattaya beach will hear this noise. We do recommend this hostel and if we were to go back to lipe, we would stay here again.

Book here if this place is available!”

We enjoyed our stay at Island Cafe and Hostel. Would hardly refer to this place as a hostel, instead it's more of a homestay. Our room was spectacular, the accommodations immaculate: strong wifi, stunning views, nicely decorated room which included a fridge and a hot water kettle. There are only 3 units in this building, if this place is available I would highly recommend booking here. Hands down the best deal in town. Only downfall is walking street itself, the motorbikes and sidecars that plague this small walking pathway can be very annoying.

The staff in the shop/hostel are so kind, room was a lovely base for a solo holiday, perfectly located on walking street as well! Very close to pattaya and sunrise beach. Shower and room facilities were great, loved the little balcony :) If this isn’t booked, since the chance and absolutely go for it, such a great place to stay and amazing value for money. And make sure to get ice cream from the shop downstairs, it’s so good!!

It's more of a guesthouse than a hostel, as there are no shared dormitory accommodations. The room itself is quite spacious and has everything a normal hotel room has, e.g., fridge, tea kettle, air-con, coffee/tea, etc. It's located near the beginning of Walking Street, one of the main resto/shopping streets on Ko Lipe.
