“Cheap & cheerful but needs a 'refresh'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

We ended up staying at Gypsy as the place we wanted to stay, Oasis, was full.
We had two concrete/brick bungalows next door to each other with a double bed in each.
All in all I think we paid a fair price for the rooms. They were clean and the fan worked, but a bit grubby - marks on walls, small burn hole in sheets and tatty furniture. Oh, and the door didnt quite fit properly so bugs could get in. Could definitely do with a refurb.
The location is great. Nice and quiet, on the path inbetween the beaches at Hippies and Ao Dalam.
Cool to have a balcony to sit and chill on.
If you're after budget accommodation, you'd be hard pressed to do better for the price. We paid 700BHT a night for each bungalow/room.

Room Tip: They all looked the same to me - but see the room and check the fan BEFORE paying!

If you've read other reviews of accommodation in Phi-Phi and compared it to the rest of Thailand then you know that you are going to have to compromise on either price or quality. Accommodation on Phi-Phi is of a lower standard to the rest of Thailand.
The room was 500 baht, basic with a fan, the en-suit was okay but with no warm water. There were lockers available for passports etc at the main Gypsy Village office at the bottom of the hill. These are free and just require a 300 baht deposit.
The location was good being around 10 minuets walk from the centre of Phi-Phi village with all the restaurants and bars, but far enough away that you are no bothered by the noise.
In the late afternoon when we wanted to use the room to shower and change for the evening the place was very hot and we were glad to get out of our room and cool down.
The walls of our room were also covered in the remains of several years of cigarette smoke. However this is the budget end and before going to Phi-Phi we asked several backpackers who'd already been there to recommend somewhere to stay and no one was prepared to recommend their accommodation. So it was still good value for money.
