Never before have I felt so unwanted in a place where I had paid to stay. The woman were angry and very rude. Never before have I met a person who is that bad with handeling customers. You do not feel welcome, and there are more stupid rules than beds in that place. At some point we ask her to... More

Our friend group booked this guest house for one night through our resort back in Patong. We stupidly didn't check trip advisor, as we thought it was only one night and was cheap. When we arrived, miss Lee was going off at multiple people in reception, she demanded our passports and 1000baht per person as a bond. She also told... More

Stayed here for three nights in a fan room. It's hot at night so I would advise air con. Miss Lee the owner is scary! There's no reasoning with her and she talks to you quiet aggressively. It says there's free wifi but it's only in the lobby area and she switches it off at 9pm. If you want it... More

We stepped into Koh Phi Phi without knowing where to go, found Ban Thai and with the price of 700 baht for two beds, fan and private bathroom it became our first option. It seemed alright at first, simple with all the necessities (having used the bin for tissue paper instead of the toilette for a month this didn't concern... More

I agree completely with "theducky1980" review. Ms Lee is quite strict, as others state she insists on a few ground rules. Follow these & you will be fine. Take of shoes, dont put anything down the toilet, dont pee the bed, etc etc. Lol. We also found it quite amusing as she ran through it all with us (but its... More

Accomodation average did not mind the rules and regs when arrived but the host lack of humanity permeated throughout the stay keep away. 1000 baht for key deposit was excessive. Very unpleasant place to stay

We made the mistake of arriving in Koh Phi Phi without accommodation booked and got sick of sweating while hauling our packs around in the middle of the day and stopped here. The owner was so terrible barking at people for one reason or other all day. Room was basic but fine except for the beds were literally the worst... More

This is the worst hotel my family has ever stayed in. We found it on Bookings.com because a friend suggested it. You were allowed one small thin towel, NO BATH SOAP. Nothing. The bed had a sheet on it (no top sheet). Ms Lee was very straight forward, you were not allowed to have your shoes on, internet was turned... More
