Stayed here for a couple of days and was glad I booked this. Phi phi is more expensive than many other parts of Thailand, so expected to pay a little more for decent but low end of price range bungalow, and I was glad I did- I met a number of people who paid less and ended up moving!
Rooms are huge, with fridge, decent tv, and very clean. Not a fan of bugs and insects so checked when I got there and saw none the entire stay :)
When booking we were allocated a room close to reception so I had no issues with steps as some people below did, reception is up one flight of stairs but that was all I climbed each day- though there were a few higher up so if steps are a problem I would just ask for a room lower down, staff were accommodating.
Location- 5 mins walk from the action, 10 mins from the beach. This was perfect for us as quiet but closeby, however you do need to walk down a sidestreet for 100-200m or so to get here and not sure I wouldve liked this walk at night alone as it was very quiet. Felt perfectly safe with 2 people however and during the day was pretty busy street. Poo garden is mentioned a lot below....basically on the side street there is an old waste treatment plant that's been turned into a beautiful garden, and yes, it stinks. Wasn't sad to see it go but walking past it a couple of times a day wasn't an issue. Smell didn't reach bungalows, just made the walk a but unpleasant!
Would recommend staying here, while it wasn't perfect for the price range it was great.
