“Very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights and it's was pretty basic. The room was okay, nothing special. But the bathroom was terrible, no hot water and the drainage was so bad that whenever you flushed the toilet or had a shower the room stank!

I read previous reviews on the front desk ripping you off with towels being marked etc and this couldn't be more true. When we were checking out the front desk were accusing (be it true or not) that people were using their mini bars when they were adamant they hadn't, then as they paid the staff were smiling at each other... So be careful with what you use in your room. Also when we arrived our pillows were marked with blue paint, so I went to reception and had them changed immediately so we couldn't get charged.

Advice would be to check everything in your room as you check in to avoid being charged a ridiculous amount for a dirty pillow case. Just be careful!

The location of the hotel it's self is absolutely perfect. Bang in the middle of everything, bars, restaurants and pretty much on the beach.. Therefore it is loud when people come back in. But instead of moaning that it's loud, why not grab a bucket and join them? If you want quiet, then book a 5* resort.

It's basic, clean(ish), has a pool, breakfast was fine, and a perfect location, all for a backpacker price!

this hotel was average, you get what you pay, the room was okay and staff are nice and helpful. one thing i complained about this hotel is the water in the bathroom was really terrible.
but besides that, the location was great, near port just 5 mins walking, near beach and centrally located so we can easily go to restaurant, shops, bar, etc
the great part is the pool, it was awesome view straight to the beach, we can swim and watch the sunset, what a great view.

Staid there for 2 nights from 01.06.14. First thing we noticed when entering the room was the smell of sea water, we assumed it was due to it being close to the sea so thought nothing of it. Second thing was the peeling paint, stained sheets and damaged furniture. To cap of we spent about 2 hours killing 40+ Mosquitos (no exaggerating) that we're lurking in the room. Oh and we realised why the room smelt of sea water when we went to take our evening shower...you will be showering and brushing your teeth in sea water!! For some reason this is what comes out of the taps. I've never written a review before on here but felt in this instance it was necessary, worst place I've ever staid in, and Ive staid in some serious sh..t holes.

Room Tip: Spend a few extra dollars and stay somewhere really decent

Phi Phi is a party area, I guess if you want a quiet place stay at out rigger or holiday Inn. It is very close to beach and shops. It is very cheap to stay a very budget hotel is what you get. The is alot of drunk people who trash the beautiful island, the staff are very helpful. They take your bags to the pier for you.

Where to start? The rooms are nothing like the pictures, unclean and need updating, the staff are not very helpful, although the location is quite good.
The location is on the beach and in the town, but this does mean it's very easy for the inebriated youngsters to find their way home to their pit.
If I was eighteen and just needed somewhere to crash this place would be perfect, if you want a relaxing holiday on a beautiful island DO NOT STAY HERE! Try the other side of the island near the andaman resorts

Clean basic accommodation. Good location on the island. 3 minute walk to beach and right on the main streets.
Breakfast wasn't good, lots of flies on the food. Very noisy at night, we stayed three nights and two of them we heard fights and police attending in the early hours of the morning.

My boyfriend and I, (doctor and nurse) stayed here in April 2014. We ignored the bad reviews and chose to stay here anyway. When we arrived the told us they couldn't give us the double bed we had booked. The staff were Extremely rude and refused to give us a discount. They basically told us to go find accommodation else where. The pool is average, warm and plays awful music all day. It was extremely difficult to sleep at night with the blaring hardcore techno music coming from the beach. We were able to break into our room using a piece of cardboard (we accidentally locked ourselves out) so security is an entirely fictional concept here. We had to book an extra night at the end of our stay (unfortunately), requiring a room move... We woke up at 1am with both beds crawling with bed bugs and blood stains on the sheets from where they had bitten us. The mattresses were covered with bed bugs, clearly a long standing problem. The shower was nothing but a trickle of water. The supervising receptionist is one of the rudest human beings we have ever met. PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE!!! IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!!!
