“Very Modern Good Value Guesthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2008

Booked one night at the Bird Cage via a travel agent/tour desk in Phi Phi so was a little hesitant as hadn't heard anything about hotel before. When we arrived we were very impressed, the lady at reception was very friendly, great level of English.

Our twin bed room wasn't available for 30 minutes so we went to grab some lunch when we got back our bags were already in the room. I was very impressed by the room - it was very modern and new. We stayed on 2nd floor - the steps were wide so easy enough for few people to walk down at once - unlike some places I have stayed.

Apparently was wifi internet but didnt have laptop so didn't use. The reception has a box full of recycled shopping bags - they are very concious of recycling and saving water. Eco consious.

The rooms were very clean and big tv with sattelite tv - lots of english channels - although spent most the time shopping not watching tv.

The shower had great pressure - just make sure you take out eth toilet paper before you shower otherwise it will be saturated.

We got twin room for 1200 baht in peak season they had cheaper rooms for 800 baht but they all had double beds so to get twin bed have to pay more for the bigger room.

THe location was great - close to Bangla Road and the beach. Down a quiet lane so no noise which was great.

I would recommend this place for couples, singles, friends, familes. I would definately stay there again if i returned and wanted a cheapish place to stay. Fabulous!

Great hostel, what feels like a hotel.
Check-inn was very smooth, however they don't accept credit cards, only cash. But they give me a day time to get cash from a atm.
The reception is a bit simple. The rooms are ok. Good size, good tv, beds and very good pillows. The bathroom is simple, but clean. They only problem is the old aThai tradition of not having shower curtains.
They have free wireless internet for your own laptop, with a decent speed.
The location is perfect. 5 mnutes to the beach via a typical thai or sureback alley. 5 minutes to the entertainment street Bangla Rd.
They give a free two hour late check-out.
The corridors are very clinical, like a old hospital. Which result in loud noise of closing doors.
Wil return for sure.
