“Worst place we've stayed by a mile!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Felt pretty unsafe. Was a building site by day and a drugs den at night. Not too fussed about the fact accomodation wasn't great, expected that for the price paid and being koh phi phi. Even the noise from the beach didn't both us, but seeing drugs openly being dealt by people who were meant to be running the place made us feel very uncomfortable there. Would have stayed extra nights on phi phi but didn't because we wanted to get out of the place!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

At night something went wrong outside. Two guys were playing some frisbee and hit the desk from the office. The local Guy who was working there got really angry. He Was acting redicilous and Pulled out a knife. In the end he said the guys should Pay 200 baht for his shirt who got wet.


The Guy of the family is really insane. The morning after the frisbee incident, the Guy got angry again. He asked the guys who threw the frisbee to get some valium instead of paying 200 Baht. So the guys were walking To get valium. at that moment The owner/Guy got more angry. 'Suddenly' his iPhone was broken because of the frisbee and the soda. He wanted money from the guys. He start hurting two guys.
After we thought he cooled down, he got angry inside the 22 bed dorm while people were sleeping. He was really really really agressive and hit the guys again. He was fighting a lot.
I think all the people felt unsafe. The group of guys felt so unsafe that they left the island. The owner/Guy followed them to start a fight on the street again. Insane!!!!!!

I checked out next day. This was one of the worst stays in my 8 Months journey. Really bad experience, not much sleep and too noisy all the time. They should close with such behaviour like this. This is not safe at all. It was just about a little accident.

It was really bad. It will not happen a lot, but this is defenitly not safe....

Im Sorry to write this, because of the staff can be kind as well...especialy the cute and happy kids.


Without this fight, i would say:
The stay was so so. Nothing special. Big dorm, 22 hard beds with mosquito net and 3 shower and 3 toilets. And A LOT mosquitos. But good to meet new people. And 250 Baht is cheap.

I stayed in the dorm as well as a private bungalow. Both were nice and good value. I really enjoyed my stay here.

The dorm is big but only 4 beds were occupied during my stay. Each bed has its own fan which is a luxury on Phi Phi.
I checked out some other hostels as well but Flower was definitly the best, and best value, on the island. Close enough to the beach and party scene, but far enough to get a good night sleep.
Fan Dorm = 300 baht per night

The bungalows are simple but have everything you need. Cute bamboohuts with a porch and hammock.
Fan bungalow = 500 baht per night.

Free toiletpaper as available at the reception as well as free towels.

After reviewing numerous bungalows on Phi Phi we headed to Flower Bungalows. First night stayed in a dorm room with AC and then returned for 4 more nights in our own bungalow with fan and private bathroom. Also available fan dorms for 20 people (cheapest option) and AC double rooms (slightly more)
-Staff were excellent, friendly, safe and helpful.
- drinks availabke to buy (we ot free water when we left)
-Very reasonable price compared to some of the other guesthouses on the island that charged excessive amounta for the same standards.
- close to viewpoint
-2 minute walk to beach, bars and restaurants
-clean, linen changed evryday if requested, towels provided.
-friendly rabbits and pink chickens wondering around!!

we are 2 girls in our twenties travelling together and we found it very social if you wanted or you can just keep yourself to yourself.

would definatley stay here again!

Room Tip: we booked on the day we got there, however can book online before also. Is the best value on the isl...

Is close to busy beaches so is loud.. But if you on the island to experience the party this place is great. Also for the price is hard to beat for a traditional bungalo. Staff always helpful and leave you to it.. For the price spectrum can't complain

Well, Well, Well there are some ups and downs regarding this place. I mean on phi phi islands, everything is scarce and little bit expensive. So, considering that:
-- The rent is cheap and for that money on Phi Phi islands, u r getting what u deserve, though a little bit cleanliness will not hurt anyone.
-- The location is good, quite close to the party places.
-- U will definitely meet some of he craziest persons during your whole trip here, actually because of that this place is still running.
--Last, this will be the place in ur trip after which u will feel proud of ur travels and u will be like yeah, I have seen some hard time and I survived it.
-- Mosquitoes could be a problem so, take some mosquito repellent.
