At first I didn't really understand all the negative reviews and wanted to stay anywhere else but here. Im not quite sure if it's because it's still technically low season but I was persuaded to book after we got a sweet deal for 400b a night in a two twin fan room. Of course there's no hot water and some... More

We had a private Ensuite room between two, paid about £7 a night and it was great! AC worked perfectly and not too loud but still close to the party Would definitely recommend. Staff really nice as my friend hurt her foot and they gave us free crutches to use :)

The room was lovely, the air conditioning worked very well, it was clean and the bathroom was nice. The pool was nice, and although the staff did not converse in much English, they were friendly. The only downside was the location, it was a good 7 minutes walk to the main area and up a steep hill. Wi-fi was a... More

Far away from the main area and is still very loud. Pay a little extra and stay somewhere else. Walls are extremely thin. Beds are hard and there were blood stains on many surfaces. I'm not a high maintenance person, this was still manageable but probably the worst place I've stayed in Thailand. Would not recommend this place to anyone.... More

I checked in and checked out. It was a shed of a room with a hole in the ceiling. Curtains wouldn't draw. No lock on door. No mosquito net. Overlooking a disgusting dried up reservoir. Staff were insanely rude. Urgh. Please don't do it.

Amazing place to stay in crazy party island like Koh Phi Phi The main area is only 5 min walk away and you also have lot of food places just next door with very cheap prices. We stayed in one of the bungalows on the side of the hill, the climb up there yes was a little tiring but it's... More

I was a tad worried about booking with this hostel due to some bad reviews however all hostels on Koh Phi Phi were filling up fast so needed to secure a place to stay. The bungalows are okay, not the best but acceptable. I inspected the mattresses for bed bugs but the mattresses were actually spotless, looked almost new. The... More

Arriving to Koh Phi Phi on the afternoon boat in January means a very busy, chaotic and rushed experience trying to pick a place to stay. Recommended to use the services of the Phi Phi tourism staff at the pier we worked with one of the girls there and ended up, mainly due to the island being extremely full with... More

First of all this establishment is an absolute trek from the pier. You spend maybe 10 minutes winding through the bar covered streets, which in the heat and carrying a rather heavy backpack is not ideal. You then have to climb steps, steps and more steps, an ascent that bear grylls would find challenging. Once you've clambered up the steps... More
