“Wow!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

what a hostel, i have to say it was stye best hostel all round for me so far and it would def take some beating. I stayed here first for 2 days and then returned after a motorbike accident to recover and it was just the perfect place to recoup. they have thought of everything, from beds with wardrobes, bunks that are secured to the wall so you don't hear or feel the person above or below you. own mirror, small changing area, curtains for privacy, plenty of showers and WC's, swimming pool, hammocks, to lounge area and much much more. the sandwich market it awesome and the staff just great. well done to this amazing hostel! :)

This was an extremely well designed hostel, with a modern, clean feel. The bathroom is modern and spacious, and the bunk beds have lots of storage space to put your belongings. The complex has a really nice ambience, and we were pleasantly surprised to discover on arrival that there's also a pool! This wasn't the cheapest place, but definitely the best hostel I've stayed at in Asia. The breakfast is also fantastic - eggs, bacon, ham and toast, plus juice and coffee are all included in the price, and delicious. While this place isn't right on the beach (about a 20 minute walk away) I'll definitely stay here again if I'm lucky enough to come back to Ao Nang!

During the 9 months I was travelling this was one of the very best hostels I stayed in. The facilities were wonderful and Ryk and the owner B were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. Very clean showers and bedrooms which included lockers. Although it was just off the beaten track it only took about 15 minutes to walk to the beach. There are plenty of bars and restaurants locally and lots of trips available.

We stayed here on our way to Koh Lanta, and liked it so much we stayed an extra night, and went out of our way to return.

Firstly, the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, but also give you space and peace and quiet. The owners are very 'hands-on' and are nice people.

The hostel itself is the best i have stayed at, not only in Thailand but in SE Asia. It has been beautifully designed from the ground up as a hostel, and as such has everything you could need. The outside areas are attractively landscaped and practical. The dorm rooms are superb, to the point where it feels like you have a private room. Each bunk has a curtain, lockable cupboard, charging points, light, and mirror. Each room is fully air-conditioned and the beds are extremely comfortable.

The hostel is located off the main road about 200m. It is easy to find, all buses will drop you at the top of the road. The beach is 15-20 mins walk away, and there are many nice restaurants and bars nearby.

Their adjoining breakfast / sandwich bar is exceptionally good and competitively priced.

I have recommended this hostel to many people, and would highly recommend it to anyone in the area. Book early and decide how many nights you want, they get very booked up as most people stay extra nights!!

This really is world class hostel accommodation, enjoy!!

It's not hard to believe that Glur is ranked highly on this site. My friend & I booked into and 8-bed mixed dorm. The bed is really comfortable & we certainly experience nights of good sleep there. The room, compound & toilets are really clean, although you can expect a few lil critters considering where the hostel is located.

There is also a common area where guests can hangout for a chat, a read or even watch DVDs & play some board games. There's also complimentary breakfast every morning consisting of toast & coffee, which is more than I can ask for a hostel. The location may be a little out of the way but it is compensated by a nice quiet surrounding & scenic hills. The staff was really friendly and accomodating in arranging for our rented scooter & ferry to phi phi & airport.

The hostel is about a 20 minutes walk to Ao Nang beach, but you'll be passing by a whole lot of restaurants and shops that you'll eventually reach the beach without realising it. Compared to other hostels, the price may be a bit higher but it's definitely worth it.

We were a group of 5 friends and stayed at glur hostel for 1 night. The lodgings ate excellent, quite comfortable and neat and clean. Even more so, it's more than just an hostel at the price of one with its open area, small pool and pleasant feel all around. The beds are spacious with lockers as well.
Also has free WiFi plus a lounge/pantry with free coffee/tea.
The bathrooms were extremely clean and good.
Location wise its only a 10 min walk from the ao nang beach.
Highly recommended.
