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

Honestly I really dont understand how some reviewers have rated the horrendous place any higher than terrible, did Miss Lee put you up in a different building??? It was dirty and oh so uncomfotable. We stayed in a room behind the reception block which you had to walk through, what could only be called a filthy dump, only to get... More

We arrived at this guest house to hear the fabulous Ms Lee shouting at a gang of backpackers for blocking her toilets with toilet paper. The room was silent, and it felt like we were back in school, witnessing the naughty kids getting shouted at in the headmistresses office. More and more people kept arriving and Ms Lee would strictly... More

Pros: -Cheapish -Close to the action -Rooms get "cleaned" daily Cons: -Moody staff. -Booked a double room. Got two singles pushed next to each other. -Beds were the most uncomfortable beds I've ever slept on in my life and I've been in a few police cells before. -Wi-fi in the common area is painfully slow -Ants in the shower

Booked on Booking.com for a 2 night stay at Ban thai. Hostile reception from the owner who wasn't friendly or welcoming. Payed the room fee of 1800 and deposit of 1000b when we were told that she had no room for us! We arrived no later than 2.30pm but after a sweaty trek with our backpacks to find out we... More

The shower is impossible to use without making everything wet though. Best thing about the guesthouse was Mrs. Lee who was a very helpfull and... More
