“Just awful except for Internet”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

The problem is, if you are reading this, it's not because you are looking to stay here, it's likely because you got sucked into staying here because you were tired of walking about Koh Phi Phi Don and just wanted a room. The guy who offered it to you had pictures of a different room, from some other hotel.

It seemed like the guesthouse had just been thrown together yesterday, with paper thin temporary walls, flooring that didn't extend all the way to said walls and doors that hardly closed. The metal roofing outside was loose in places and would rattle and bang with the wind making you feel like the building would collapse. The rooms were dirty and the bed had ants crawling over it.

You will be staying with a bunch of total idiot tourists who will steal your sandals, shatter windows in the middle of the night, and be drunk all day, so it's hard to blame the guesthouse for not going out of their way to help you. They probably just assume you're going to be a terrible person. For this you must put down a 500 baht deposit, and we heard that you can have a difficult time getting it back. Be sure to get a receipt, and if you really didn't damage anything, stand your ground and keep asking until you get it back.

The one good thing about the guesthouse was the internet, it was blazing fast, which was great for us since we had some work to do and didn't really like Koh Phi Phi.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the second floor, but really, just don't stay here.

This place was a dump. The only reason they get people to come to this place is because of all the hustle and bustle that happens at the pier when all of the new tourists come. The photos were deceiving and the guy who eventually got us to agree to stay for one night and then we can look around was either the manager or the owner. These guys obviously are not objective. We got there and it is down some destroyed dirt road(which wasn't the problem) but you get there and it is a total hole in the wall. They gave us room #1, located right by the outdoor reception area, so we would have to deal with all of the conversations outside of the room.
In the room the only thing that was clean was the bed. The walls unfinished and thin (so you hear EVERYTHING). The curtains were barely big enough to cover the slated windows and paper thin so all light gets in. There was only one electrical plug in the room. The room was small and uncomfortable.
The worst part was the bathroom. Ants everywhere and even though we told them, asking for some surface spray or a cleaning but nothing came of it. They did not really provide any service, eventually asking them a few times, they will empty your garbage can and change the sheets. The door did not close and didn't even come close. It was very dingy and gloomy. Plus, there was a vent at the top of the bathroom wall that actually connected with the neighbours, obviously a kitchen of some sort, because every morning we were welcomed into their conversations and cooking sessions with loud voices and pans and pots clacking.
Finally, the towels in the room are random pieces of material that they probably picked up on the ground somewhere. The lady at reception was friendly but completely out to lunch. She accused us of not paying for our room for about 3 days, but after showing her our receipts apologized for confusing us with someone else.
This room was worth at most 2-300 baht, but because of the busy time they scammed some of us into paying 800!!! The only thing good about this place was the free internet. There are a lot of places nearby so take a walk and make sure you stay somewhere else, anywhere else!

Room Tip: DO NOT listen to the guys when getting off of the ferry and book accommodation there. Walk around an...
