One of my favorite memories of staying on Ko Phi Phi Don 20 years ago was staying at a very basic bamboo bungalows with thatched roof right on the beach. So when I was planning our trip to Ko Phi Phi and read all the descriptions on Tohko, my husband wanted his own bamboo bungalow memories. Out of a week in Ko Phi Phi, we stayed 2 nights each at Dee Dee Guesthouse on Tonsai, at Tohko, and then at Holiday Inn on Laem Tong Bay. At Tohko, we had a beach bamboo bungalow with no AC.
We read the reviews on TA so we knew what we were getting and really enjoyed our stay at Tohko. We were picked up from Tonsai pier around afternoon with other lodgers and took about 30 minutes on a long tail boat to get to Tohko. Be ready to get wet. Check-in and check-out transport from/to Tonsai pier is free. All other transport to/from Tonsai, they will charge a fee.
Our favorite part of the bungalow was the deck perched above the clear blue waters with cool ocean breeze. One negative about our bungalow was lack of breeze when sleeping even though we had a fan and the windows were open. This might be problematic for some. In which case, they offer rooms with AC and I think they are cheaper than the beach bamboo bungalows. We didn't have much of bug problems except some gnats in the bathroom and some mosquitos got into our mosquito net our first night. As someone else said, there's no electricity in the rooms during day time. But it didn't bother us, they have power at the lobby/restaurant all day and that's where everyone is free to charge their electronic gadgets.
As for food, we didn't miss going to other restaurants because their food was really yummy and they even have cocktails available.
For entertainment, they have a nice little beach, go hiking up the hill to the viewing station 2 toward Tonsai (took us an hour at slow pace wearing flip flops), they have snorkel gear (free, or at least we were not charged), pool table in the restaurant, and they have some books and cards to use.
Upon checkout, we used their long tail boat to take us to Holiday Inn Resort for 1000 baht, going rate.
Overall, we enjoyed Tohko and we received friendly service. Bed was comfortable and the view and the breeze off of the beach bamboo bungalow deck was delightful.
