We stayed here for a few days and really liked Buffalo. The room was quiet and clean, and the location was great... a 2 minute walk to the walking street, and not more than 10 or 15 minutes to a couple of beaches. The breakfast...was great - huge portions, fresh fruit, and delicious pancakes!More

We loved our stay here. We stayed for 3 night. We lived the staff and they were helpful. They made breakfast to our specifications and it was very tasty. Rooms were very clean. This place is on walking street and everything easily accessible

You’re not looking at Thailand’s cheapest burger restaurant, but let’s keep in mind here that Koh Lipe, being a small island in the very south of Thailand, is generally a bit more expensive. So, starting from 300 baht you get a pretty decent burger; in...fact, it clocks in among the best I’ve had in Thailand. The meat is well seasoned and flavorful, fresh lettuce and onion, the cheese tastes like it should and the bun, even though I was skeptical about the fairly soft dough, hold everything together neatly. No greasy mess at all, everything was kept in place very well(and colour me surprised here!). I’ve had a lot of French fries in Thailand, and I’ve been disappointed by the majority of them so far. I don’t know what it is, but a lot of times you get half-finished, soggy fries that don’t taste of anything else but salt and despair until you drown them in brown sauce or ketchup. Here, you guessed it, the fries were good. Very good actually. Crispy, nice texture inside with a good taste and a light paprika Flavour to boot. The atmosphere of the cosy restaurant in a side-road off walking street is rustic and modern, it reminds you of all those hip, zeitgeisty Cafés which seem to jump out of the ground in bigger western metropolis like they provided carbon-dioxide filtration systems to the inhabitants. In other words: it’s good. I’d eat here again after a good day of diving.More

We only had a breakfast here, but it was really nice that I would definitely recommend. Fresh fruits, french toast, sandwich, etc., everything we had was more than expected! I wish my everyday breakfast is like theirs... P.S. If you are a guest of this...hotel, the breakfast is included, so I also recommend to stay here as well.More

The most basic burger cost 300 bahts. A bit expensive for cheese, tomato, lettuce and onion. Then it just gets more expensive. The extras are 40 for bacon, 30 for egg... It comes with side french fries. The taste is not even good (nor bad),...just average.More

Stay there for 2 night during low season of koh lipe. Room is clean and comfy, I like the design with the big windows. Toilet also clean with hot water. The breakfast is great, yummy. Snorkling mask available for free. The stuff all very nice,...not all speak english thou, but the person in charge speak good english. Ben explain to us about the island during check in. When we check out, George (I cannot really remember his name, but seems like george, sorry ☺️) arrange the free transport for us. Location is like 1 min to walking street. Very recommended!More

워킹스트리트에서 골목길로 들어와 조금 거리가 있지만 찾기 전혀 어렵지 않고, 아담하고 작지만 깔끔하고 조용한 분위기입니다. 커피를 잘 마시지 않는데 동행인이 커피가 맛있다고 해서 한 모금 맛보니 맛이 좋았어요. 재료가 없어서 주문이 불가한 요리가 세가지 이상 있었습니다. 원하던 메뉴 대신 주문한 다른 음식의 맛 역시 평범했습니다.

I think this is the best place to eat meat. there is also a choice for vegans. The pork ribs were amazing. Special thanks to Ben and Suise for patience and excellent service. Also this place is an excellent non-expensive hotel. with very clean rooms...and all that you might need.More

Just off Walking Street you'll find a tiny yet trendy café serving great coffee. It filled up quickly the morning we visited. They offer yummy burgers, too, if you're hankering for one.
