We stayed there 2 nights. As in the other reviews, it is up on the hill which is no problem. Only 5-10 min walk to the center and beach. At night you hear the party probably as loud as when you take part on it so perfect for party people. The most negative for us was the yellow and stinky... More

We stayed here for one night and found it was quite a good option. The bungalow was simple but clean and inviting. It's a short distance from all the action (which is a good thing!) but it was still extremely loud during the night. I don't want to think what it's like to sleep right in the center, as it... More

At first the charming little huts, located away from party central seemed like a brilliant place to stay. But the bass from the beach parties was loud even at 4pm, the huts get really hot, and since the wall is open at the bathroom, animals crawl into the hut at night. Besides, it's quite a long walk up a steep... More

Stayed there with my boyfriend. It is located a bit far from everything, but phiphi is so small, that you can easily walk there. The bangaloos were so cute, I loved it! But the best of all is the lady that takes care of the place, she is so nice and helpful, she really made a huge difference. I just... More

This place seems to get a lot of bad reviews... I'm not sure why, for a budget traveller it's certainly better than some places you could end up in. The "steep climb" up the hill isn't as bad as some make it out to be. A guy meets you at the pier to carry your bags for you in a... More

The bungalow was small and simple but it had everything I needed,my own room with my own bathroom and a balcony! The place is a little bit up in the hills (10min walk) so... More

My friend and I stayed here for a few nights last December and was the cheapest accommodation we could find on the Island. The location is poor as it is situated high up in the mountains extremely far from the town. The huts are basic, but are fine for backpackers. Would recommend paying a bit extra for somewhere closer to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in April and found it to be acceptable considering the other options on the island. The rooms are the definition of basic, small thatched bamboo huts with a mattress thrown on the floor, a mosquito net and a fan. The bathroom is a concrete slab. There are large gaps in the room and the... More
