This was by far the worst place we have stayed in 5 months travelling around south east asia. Miss Lee was originally very friendly although she deep keep barking new rules to follow. The room itself was smelly and damp but we have had rooms like that before but when the water broke 3 times in 10 minutes, smelly sewer... More

We had intended to visit Koh Phi Phi for a day trip, but after my friend stepped in glass, we spent most of the afternoon in the medical centre and so sought a place to stay for the night. We unfortunately chose Ban Thai Guesthouse. The greeting we received from Mrs. Lee, the owner, was abrasive at best, rapidly descending... More

Was high season in Phi Phi and it was impossible to find out another place to stay. Stay here just if you don't have money or another option. Bathroom is horroble and the bed is like sleepong on the floor. The owner is really crazy and will ask you 1.000 baths for the key deposit. Stay away from this place!

Ok, place was cheap, but geez, manager/owner of this place has no consideration for its guests! She was rude and did not let us use the bathroom in the lobby after we checked out... If you stay there, you'll also have to share your bathroom with cockroaches! Also, the mattress was very thin and uncomfortable. My advice: STAY AWAY FROM... More

I stayed in an air con room for two nights. Room was clean with TV,clothes horse, towels, chairs and shelves. Shower was powerful and warm too. It's basic but at 900 baht per night it's quite cheap for Phi Phi. The lady in reception was very friendly and helpful. Only cons were that there's no safe, there's a large towel... More

I only stayed here for one night and I am quite glad, the owner is very friendly however its overpriced for what it is. There is an aircon machine in the room however I assume it doesnt work because there was no remote, so I had to make do with a fan which wasn't ideal as the room was small... More

The guesthouse was a decent place to stay. The price we paid was high compared to others for what you get. The blanket is a big towel. The mattress was really thin, anybody will sink down to the wood frame. It seemed like everyone flocked here after getting off the ferry. Usually we book a place to stay prior, and... More

On the last years I have been constantly travelling and using accommodations from 1 to 5 stars. The experience at this guesthouse was by far the worst. I read some comments in favor of this property saying that you get what you pay for. Well for me at the end was not cheap and although inexpensive accommodations are sought I... More

We booked two nights at the Baan Thai guesthouse even after reading the bad reviews. Especially the ones about Miss Lee, the lady running the place were worrying. Upon arriving we automatically obeyed the large and quite obvious signs about taking off footwear before entering and got a very friendly welcome. In all honesty, I'm not the most carefree of...

My boyfriend and I arrived at Baan thai a little worried after reading reviews but a group of our friends had already checked in there and they were the only place that seemed to still have rooms on Christmas Day. She seemed to take an instant dislike to us for no reason at all. She took the money and the... More
