“Amazing place to stay (best shower you'll have in thailand)”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Loved it here! The staff and owner were the best, so friendly always having chats with us and socializing. The rooms are big and clean, with places to store luggage which is very rare. The shower areas are really nicely decorated, water pressure on the shower was so good - something I'd been craving my whole trip. They let you use the chill out area (bean bags, huge TV) as long as you want, when we wanted to relax, along with a few other customers we got a take out from next door (amazing curries) and watched one of the films on the owners hard drive. Location wasn't the best but we hired mopeds (from the hostel) and getting anywhere was no bother.

Moved here after 3 nights at Chillout House (which was lovely and friendly also!) and the a/c was definitely needed! All the staff were very accommodating and helpful, not least when I hit my head when drunk and started bleeding out of my ear!
Highly recommended!

great vibes here. girls who run it are so friendly, such a nice welcome when you've been travelling for a while to get to Koh Lanta. We would have stayed much longer but the weather has forced us to relocate. I always thought people who complain about bed hardness were being prissy but these beds truly are rock solid but not a trip ruiner.
Pricey in comparison to other hostels in the area but the common area is worth it :)

Great hostel, very friendly staff - the girls are amazing! Very easy and short way to the beach. I would definitly recommend this hostel! Also the common areas are very comfy and everything is absolutely clean.

I really enjoyed my stay in non la mer. It is well located, a 10 minute walk from the beach. There are many restaurants close by as well as ATMs and bars.
The hostel was very clean and comfortable. There is a huge selection of films available to watch in the common area for anyone in need if a break from the sun!!

I was there on sept 2013 and i had a really great stay! The staff is over charming and always smiling, they speak perfect english and will help you the best they can. The place itself is clean and tidy, there's a fan living room with big screen Tv with lots of divx. You can eat, smoke and meet other travellers there. The breakfast included is simple but they have nice and fresh wholewheat bread every morning. As it says it is not by the beach but honestly it´s like 3 min walk away from nice long beach! I will book again at this place if i ever go back to Lanta (which is definitely a island you want to check if you want something more genuine and non touristic).

After having spent the last 20 months travelling around the globe I feel like I'm a good judge of a hostel ( I've literally stayed in hundreds ) and Non La Mer is as good as it gets..... Especially for Asia. The staff are very helpful, fun and friendly. The common room is amazing. The dorms are well set out, spacious and very comfortable. I could not recommend this place any more. Stay here!
