Ohh what to say about this hostel . . . Dont have enough bathroom to tho guest so always you have to wait . The room smell really bad , first I thought where the two canadians but then realize was something wrong there . The staff during the day is really bad , dont speack inglish and they dont care to help you . No plug at the upper beds . The sheets are old as well the hostel is without care . The owner is a good girl knew in the bussines . Think she is going to do better in the future .
The staff were friendly, helpful, and as accommodating as possible. The dorms were more spacious than most of the other hostels at the same price. There is a new bar next door with live music, which can go until pretty late, so if you want a good night's rest, this is probably not the best place to stay, although there aren't many places on the island that are quiet. The 6-person dorm is quieter than the 4-person because of the direction it faces. It was decent value and I enjoyed my stay.
I stayed in a hostel in Ao Nang called Slumber Party for the exact price at 200 baht a night and it is miles ahead of this hostel in terms of value for money. The Centerpoint is based right in the heart of the Phi Phi nightlife, next to a bar with a singing band, meaning if you fancy a quiet one, you are not in luck. The bunk beds are smelly, sweaty and rock hard, whilst the hot water in the showers are non existent.

first i booked this hostel only for one nite than i decided to stay longer...good location and this is best place to meet other cool travellers.. and cheap price of course
Koh Phi Phi Don is over-rated. The best beach isn't even on this island...It is on Koh Phi Phi Lay. However, a day trip to Koh Phi Phi Lay will get you to the Decaprio "Thw Beach" movie beach. In the morning it is crowded w toirist and in the afternoon low tide sucks all the water out to sea....Just like the beaches on Koh Phi Phi Don (accomodations island). Bring your own toilet paper to this hostel, they only provide micro small pink napkins located outside the toilets. Cold showers! OK
Overall I enjoyed my stay here, for 3 nights. It had a great location in the centre of the area with bars and restaurants, yet relatively quiet as it was down a side street. The security during the day needs improving as dorm doors have no locks!
This hostel is in a good location however this is the only positive about this place. The dorm had a horrible, rotting, damp smell to it, while the sheets were covered in stains. The bathrooms were also damp and unclean. Stayed here two nights before moving to a different place due to the smell!
The location of the hostel is good, but that is the only positive expect for me. It was not possible to lock any doors (both for the room and the bathroom), the owner wasn't very enthousiastic about receiving guests, the cleaning person comes into the room around 10 times spread over 3 hours, which makes it rather difficult to get some sleep... However, I heard only bad stories about other hostels at Phi Phi as well, so maybe this one is still ok compared to the others.
DO NOT STAY HERE! They have BED BUGS! The owner didn't seem fussed at all by the fact that several people were complaining of bed bugs and bites.
This was a plesant enough hostel in a great location. All the bars and nightlife are just a short walk away. The bathrooms could have used some attention in terms of cleanliness, but you get what you pay for. Note that the AC is turned off from 11am to 6pm, so the rooms can get a little muggy. Overall, a pleasant stay.
Cleaners came in at least 3 times a day, we were not able to use the shower at one point because they had decided to retile at 4pm when everyone got back from the beach. Found the guy running it to be unwelcoming. Also had a blood stain on my pillow. Good location and very cheap for the island but would only stay there is everywhere else was full.
Have been to this hostel a few times now and I'm always really happy with my stay here! Really good place for a backpacker, can't say anything bad about this place.
I really enjoyed my time here, but thats largely to do with the people in my dorm (14) there is a seriously lack of bathrooms and the water pressure of the shower is dreadful but you get what you pay for. I've stayed in much nicer cheaper hostels but Phi Phi is expensive in itself so standard is to be expected. Wouldn't discourage anyone from staying here, unless you're looking for somewhere quiet or looking for a good nights sleep!

Alright bedrooms, not very sociable and only one toilet/shower which opens up in view of the street. There was only running water sometimes- others nothing. Can get equally good hostels for 150-200b if you look.

The first night we stayed here everything seemed fine. The hostel is in a pretty good location and our room was decent with its own bathroom. The second night the water stopped working and we realized there were not enough bathrooms to accommodate the whole hostel. It took 2.5 hours before we could shower and even than it was just enough water to rinse off. Also people kept walking into our room (that didn't lock) hoping to use our bathroom.
Great hostel, fantastic value for money. Couldn't be any more central, just a minutes walk to the beach and to the bars. I stayed here for 2 weeks last summer and 2 weeks this summer, and no doubt will be back again! Great place to stay if you are looking to meet other backpackers. The staff are all fantastic... really friendly and helpful and happy to help you out with whatever you need.
Great location, easy to meet people, dingy bathrooms, A/C only on from 6pm-11am in the rooms
One bathroom for like 20 people?!
