I really don't know why Tropical Garden got such bad reviews. I went there expecting the worst, but my friends and I thought it was great!
The location is ideal - away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets of Phi Phi where all the tourists swarm. It's really cute too, you actually feel like you're entering the 'jungle' because of all the rocks and trees.
Our bungalow was just fine - the fan worked, the mosquito nets didn't have holes, and the bathroom was clean. In fact, everything at the hostel was clean. We had a hammock out front, with a porch and railings where we could dry our towels and clothes.
And yes, the pool is a little green but it's not dirty. We loved the pool and it was great to relax by when we were too lazy to walk by the beach. We even used the swim up bar to order fancy tropical drinks. The guys who work at the bar are super nice and they play great music.
I would definitely stay here again.
