The hostel staff was friendly, but did a poor job in explaining hostel rules and their security of the place was very lax. The hostel itself was difficult to find. Googlemaps doesn't give accurate directions to get to the hostel. The local people were no help as well. You need to talk to the diving companies to be able to find this hostel. There are only 2 bathrooms you may use in the hostel.
Was worried that there were only 2 common toilets cum bathroom but it was always available and didn't bother to locate the others. Air conditioning was off during the day when it was needed most and did not see any fan around.
Was in a great location but not much atmosphere, party island so would assume a much more lively/friendly atmosphere which it did not have. Clean facilities- room and bathroom cleaned daily. Staff sat on phone but we're helpful as much as needed.
Good stay overall..loved the location. It is near the beach and very near the food street with the cheapest food so you never stay hungry. Loved the bar right outside the hostel.
Don't let this be your first option for Phi Phi. We booked really last minute so there wasn't much available. Not very clean, no atmosphere and very low security. That said it was fine for a place to crash for just one night.
Wouldn't stay here again. Only 2 toilets & showers available, one of which was broken/blocked and located in the hostel foyer (therefore I wouldn't want to use anyway). We had to walk through the other dorm to get to the other toilet and shower.. No lockers for larger items. Nice aircon in the evening though.
Staff are rude and unhelpful, majority who stay are "workers" that are just rough. The "bathroom" is gross and never cleaned. Beds are comfy but all rooms are basic, general feel about the place just isn't good. Pay that 100b extra and go somewhere else
Staff are extremely rude! room are and bathrooms are not cleaned so overflowing as there is only one per dorm! dirty and people enter off street so not secure at all! Staff would rather sleep on the couches then help their customers!!
The hostel is located above a bar so there is live music going on and drunk people singing until 1-2 a.m. Be prepared for that if you are staying there. The rooms are not that clean but again - Koh Phi Phi is a rather expensive island compared to other islands around so for the money you pay you get acceptable conditions. The location is in the middle of the island so you have relatively the same distance between the two main beaches. Staff was helpful. There are lockers for valuable belongings.
Great location, right across from banana bar solid place to stay. staff are great. seriously have nothing bad to say about this place
Overall two thumbs up. Just odd how the air con comes on only at 5pm and doesn't stay in during the day.
If you can avoid to stay there, DO SO! Staff is unfriendly, they don't speak English very well, so it might be an issue of you don't speak Thai. The only good thing about there is that is fairly good located, next to a couple of good bars and not far from the beach where the parties happen. Besides, It's quite dirty and the air conditioner might be turned off without your consent. This happened with us, the woman just walk into our room and turned that off without saying a word.

The Centerpoint Hostel has a very nice location, even though I think all off the accommodation capacities on Phi Phi are not very far from the town and beaches, due to the small size of the island. The rooms are not very clean and there is something inside that mysteriously and constantly produces sand, making everything covered with it. There is only one toilet in the hostel, but I we didn't wait in queues to use it. One thing I disliked the most was that we had to take off our shoes to enter.
little cleaning, always dirty bathroom, no wifi in the room.
Good hostel. But only two toilets for the whole place. And if you have the bunk under the aircon unit your gonna have a pretty average sleep.

Only one toilet and shower for the whole hostel! Very loud bar next door so don't stay here if you plan on sleeping...
Good and affordable accomodation. The street is a bit noisy if you are a person that need a quite time to sleep other than that it was a nice place with friendly staff.
I had really bad bed bugs here, I left with at least 50 bites all over my body, it was horrible. To be fair, once I'd reported them they did clear out the whole room abut we left that day so it didn't really help my situation.
2 toilets for all the dorms... Other than that, good place!
