Phi Phi Dream
Ranked #7 of 63 Ko Phi Phi Don B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 25, 2012

This GH is recommanded by the french "routard".
Rooms are tiny (7m2 max)
Some rooms are the on street side : really noisy. It's ok if you are going out all night long !
Some rooms are on the "garden" side : it's in facter on "sewer" side and it stinks.
Bed are warned out.
Regarding price : it depends ... we booked by phone and ageed on 700B for small room per night (or 1000B for big room)... We finally paid 1000B for a tiny room .... i suppose small rooms are just a cupboard.

Do NOT stay here!!!

There are BEDBUGS - I was bitten to death during my two night stay. My friend also found 2 larger bugs on her pillow the day we arrived and so did not sleep with it.

The room was not very clean and the bedding was filthy - covered in stains.

The bathroom smelled of sewage and the toilet blocked and filled with water so that we couldn't use it - no we didn't put toilet paper in it.

There were signs stuck everywhere with long lists of rules on, including many about being quiet and no noise. However, we spent over an hour awake during the early hours of the morning when other guests were shouting and being very noisy.

The staff are miserable and you have to take your shoes off before you enter the hostel.

The hostel advertises that it has a laundry but the whole 3 days we were there it was out of order.

After reading reviews about the hostel having security issues and guests being robbed, we were worried, however the room did have a safety deposit box which locked with a padlock the hostel staff provided us with - but we used our own to be safer. The location is OK and there is air conditioning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is on the inside of the building because the ones on the outside hear all the no...

We stayed here one night. Lucky just one.

We had an unpleasant suprise in the night! Hundreds of bedbugs in the bed and in the whole room. Two diferent kinds. There must be there since quite a while. Next morning we checked out and i did show the "manager" my colection of round about 30 bedbugs in a plasticbottle. He first was trying to tell me that this is/was the first time ever something like this has happend but after a few words he told me it happend before and that they are aware of these insects in the bed. But we where just one day there so they put us in the infected room...Well done!!! I didnt get much sleep this night anyway...

Staff is ok but not helpfull when it comes to bedbugs or a refund of the money for the room.
Rooms are dirty and small but ok if you are just planing a few days holiday. But check for BUGS before you check in...

I guess if they take care of the bugs it is ok for 1-2 days but spend 100 baht more and you can get a nice bugallow just 20 meters further (tropical garden bungallows, thats where we stayed the second night)

Thank you for your review.

Now we cleaning every day ours rooms for check ours beds and we take care about this terrible insects infestations to not coming again.
A bed bugs infestation has nothing to do with cleanliness.
Best regards

Unfortunately we had a whole 7 nights here! The staff are very rude and unfriendly, he constantly moans about taking your shoes off etc but when we ask him to fix the water in our bathroom he ignores us! The bedding needs a serious wash - looked grey! Location isnt great as it smelt of sewage from the poo field behind. Not a pleasant experience - on the plus though no thefts as previous reviews mentioned.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms were very small and dirty to begin with. The staff weren't very helpful. The showers stopped working on two occasions. The location is poor... down some grotty pathway. And you have to take your shoes off before you enter the hotel.

Avoid this hotel at all costs!!! Warnings inside rooms warn of "common theft" and we took all precautions locking up our luggage every time we left the room. While at breakfast across the street for less than half an hour a complete inside job robbed us of cash, travelers cheques, watch and iTouch! They locked our bags back up afterwards so it appeared nothing had been touched. They knew we were checking out that very morning- because they told us the day before we had to leave as they were "fully booked"!- and didnt leave a trace of the robbery so we didnt notice until we'd reached Bangkok! This is a well oiled machine and everyone at this guesthouse- and possibly at the restaurant across the street as well- is definitely involved! They found valuables that were HIDDEN in our bags!!! If you cross this hotel give them a good punch for us!!

We stayed here for 3 nights and that was enough time for us in Phi Phi Dream and Phi Phi itself.

As previous reviewers have said the hotel is backing onto a water treatment plant which smells unpleasant and also on Phi Phi as a whole mosquitos were a problem and possibly linked to this so bring repellant!

The hotel itself was average, the room and bedding were clean and the bed was big and comfortable. The room was furnished with a wardrobe and drawers for clothes and bag storage and a tv but not space for much else. The TV has a range of 70 plus channels mainly Thai but with TAN, world news, starworld and australia network in English.

The service was good - the lady on reception looked after our bags after check out while we waited for our boat and would offer help and advice when asked.

If I returned to Phi Phi I would look for a location away from the sewage works. In fact probably on Long Beach as this area of Phi Phi was beautiful and away from the european holiday resort feel that the main town has - especially at night. However just as a bed for the night if you are planning to be out most of the time or want somewhere close to the bars this is perfectly adequate.
