“Rip off - Avoid!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

We arrived to Ko Lipe on the Valentine's day weekend and the island was basically fully booked. We only found a room at this place after asking other 15 and they asked us 3000 bht, at that point we were happy we found a room. But the room really did not seem to be worth the price and we discovered they charged us almost double as usual (on the website max price is 1650) !!! They just took advantage that the island was fully booked and this is definitely a rip off place to avoid! And the reception lady was far away from being nice, we also asked for an explanation about the price difference when we found out but she did not care at all!!! The following night we spent same amount for one of the beatiful Castaway bungalows on the beach!

Stayed February 2014, travelled with friends

For me, a resort is something different than this. This place is just a spot where you can hang around to have some sleep. As it does not have aircon, the nights are quite hot.

It has a good location, and, furthermore, the staff is sympathetic.

We stayed here for two nights as a last resort, my partner and I were I'll and desperate for some AC and a good nights sleep. We paid £35 per night for a dirty, smelly room that was infested with bugs, worms in the toilet and bathroom and mosquitoes everywhere. The AC did work though so that was a blessing. Lipe is a hard place to find accommodation on, it's busy an expensive so shop around.

Location of this place is very good, on Walking Street 100 meters from Pattaya beach.
It can get a bit noisy at night but at midnight music is tourned off everywhere so you can get good sleep at night.
In the morning the other guests will not pay much attention at your quiet so be' prepared to be waken up at around 8.
There are several places nearby where you can have your breakfast, lunch and dinner and nice bars also.
Longtail bar was my favourite, with live music every night and a cozy atmosphere.
My room at Kasirin had no AC and no hot water, but had a good fan. More expensive rooms have AC.
Room was basic but clean, with TV (almost alla channels were Thai channels, no movie channels, so pretty useless...).
Bathroom was very very basic, with toilet with no flush, but okish.
You get wifi internet in your room, but very very slow, as on most of Ko Lipe island.
Prices in peack season are quite high (I payed 1250 bt per night) and you can find much cheaper places on the island.
But in the end location is very good and sometimes it is worth it to pay a bit more for it. I spent 2 weeks there and I enjoyed it.
If they charged lower prices like 800-900 bt per night that would be perfect.
Nevertheless I was there for Christmas and New Year and they were almost always fully booked. So do consider advance booking for this place anyway as for that period you will not be likely to find rooms available just walking in.

A nice quaint little terrace accommodation. Small room (able to sleep 3) with TV and wifi. No hot water. Generally clean room and the air condition functions well. When staying in this property, look for Baan Kasirini 2 instead of the older block. The BK2 is located further east in Lipe walk nearer to the Sunrise beach.

Pros
- cheap and located in heart of village
- air con, wifi, tv
- quiet even during peak season
- clean at Baan Kasirini 2 terrace
- staff not very hospitable but they fix your woes (very few)

Cons
- no hot water
- a walk from the beach
- no shampoo/washes/soap etc (yes to towels)
- no housekeeping

It's a nice property and cheaper if you walk in than book online. In fact all hotels we checked we're cheaper/can be bargained if you do a walk in. Online rates during peak or high season are crazy.
