Stayed here for 2 nights in the mixed dorm. Was 150baht for the night but even so was not worth the money. Have stayed in hostels for 100 baht a night which were much better than this place. Upon arrival the staff were not friendly. They quickly checked you in and ushered you to your bed. The dorm was rammed.... More

I stayed at this hostel during my time on Ko Phi Phi. If you're looking for cheap, no frills accommodation then this is for you. The dorm rooms are very basic with faux-leather beds, one bed sheet, two fans and one plug point in the room of twelve beds. This is great if you intend to spend your time on... More

*Disclaimer, we did not try the thai food, it could be amazing. Went to the Rock Restaurant today to people watch. Super disappointing.Have had lots of great pasta on the island, but not at the Rock. Pomodoro spaghetti sauce was really gross. It was similar to a watery jelly or plum sauce not tomato sauce. Also paid 60 baht for... More

We didn't stay at the backpackers itself, however the attached restaurant serves incredible meals that are all well priced. Great vibe, good music & excellent service. Highly recommend trying the chicken pad thai.

Awesome except for the roosters that start crowing at five in the morning. Bring headphones! Nice, clean bathrooms and peaceful yet central location. Really liked the views from the upper bathroom sinks! The dorm beds were pretty awful, but the room we switched to was nice.

I stayed in both a fan room and the dorm room with on Phi Phi. The fan room is very basic but I had no complaints other than it getting very humid. Oh and the roosters that start constantly cock-o-doodling at 5:00 am. The upper bathrooms are clean and nice. The dorms basically have plastic mats for beds and pillows... More

It had to be said. After searching desperately for some vegetarian food, my sister and I settled on a vegetarian pizza here at the Rock. It was crap. Like how do you mess up pizza? I don't know. They've truly done the impossible here. Service wasn't impressive either. We'd finished our unfortunate drinks by the time our unfortunate meal arrived.

Well I have to say I like the location of this guesthouse. It located in the rock of the island and I can watch the sunset, listen some backpacker plays guitar and chatting with them. Stay in the dorm is quite inconvenience because the bathroom condition is quite bad. However, the staff is friendly and the fellows backpacker is interesting... More

Best garlic bread Ever! By far the best food I have experienced in Thailand to date, I would highly recommend the ninja pizza! I only wish I had eaten here for every meal. I heard the dorm rooms are some of the best on phi phi aswell, so I would recommend staying there.
