An ok place to stay in Koh Phi Phi. Good location as is out of the way of the hussle and bussle of the rest of the Island. However dont go there expecting a lovely pool, its dirty with suncream grime and absolutely tiny. Have stayed in nicer places in Thailand for cheaper. Also out room wasnt properly cleaned on a arrival.

Brill pool, just what you need on a hot Thailand day! Location great as close enough to go to the action, but far enough from the noise and busy streets. Only thing is it is really dark when walking in at night so be careful but plenty of people around...and cats!!! haha Brill room, reception was good and handy, stairs going up to bungalow were fun!! Big steps!! Chickens everywhere which was lovely as love chickens. Place very nice and pool lovely!! Not everywhere has a pool so a nice change!

Great location, great atmosphere and really friendly staff. It was out of the busy town but not far away at all and very easy to find following the directions given when booking. The cleanliness of the hostel was excellent and it was a real bonus that they had a pool.

Nice facilities with the elevated pool and small poolside bar, which played good music and was perfect for a few drinks post daytime activity and pre-night out. Staff was friendly. Room was good, but there is no wardrobe or place to hang clothing. Only provided one key per room. No TV, but that's not what I came for. Some complain about location/hill, but we didn't mind the walk, we thought the place was worth it. In general, the island is a maze, so make sure to note where you're going!

Well, first of all I stayed in Private Double Suite it totally make me comfortable even i had stay alone as backpacker. The room is clean out of dust even though its in high point. A nice hill view from the balcony. Luckily no mosquito during my stay. Good network coverage in the room even far from the reception point. With a dining place and swimming pool and friendly staff. A great thanks to the staff who lend me his travel adapter when i need it immediately. Definitely will recommend it.

Be prepared to walk when you get off the boat, there are no taxis in phi phi so you will have to carry your luggage.

We wilden even op een rustiger plekje slapen (niet de hele nacht een harde bas aanhoren) en boekten daarom dit. Kamer was simpel en het geld (36 euro per nacht) zeker niet waard. Naar het strand was het nog zeker 10 min.

Best place for a private room at Phi Phi

Was wary going looking at reviews but was pleasantly surprised. Great atmosphere lovely people. Rooms are nothing fancy and it's a bit further from the action but so long as you're in phi phi to party it's perfect.

We had a lovely stay of 6 days in a standard double room. Room was clean, staff spoke English suffient and were very friendly. We didnt mind the stairs (about 5 minutes up), but hopefully they sort out the towns sewer system quickly, cause there are a lot of "surprise smells" (over the whole island btw). Nice and quiet (not to close to town) a 10-15 min walk to beach.

Every morning we were woken up by a loud banging and squealing noise - genuinely sounded like a pig was running around outside! We were in a room with just a fan - would definitely recommend aircon as it got absolutely boiling!! The location was the main issue - up a steep hill away from town which wasn't ideal. Expensive but the pool was good.

Very clean, friendly staff, decent value. Rooms without AC are very hot, and despite having a fan it is very difficult to cool the room since the only windows are very low and do not face an exterior wall. Room was about 5 degrees warmer than outdoor temp at night.

The location of this accommodation is a good 15-20min walk up hill from the pier, which Is certainly a struggle If you are carrying a back pack or wheeling a suitcase. There are no roads so getting aa taxi is not an option. The bungalows are very basic, not very clean and lack air conditioning. There is a swimming pool which Is a bonus, and the low price tag is definitely attractive if your on a budget. But don't have high expectations of this place. You get what you pay for.

This place is fine if you don't mind a trek home every night (or in 35 degrees with a backpack!) The pool is great but owing to the fact it's next to the reservoir it's a bredding ground for mozzies! Staff were nice enough but didn't interact much. There were ants all over my room and I wasn't able to change as they were fully booked! The room itself was nice, a view to the sea from the small window, clean and air conditioned. Not really worth paying £32 a night though!

Short walk to the beach/center of phiphi, swimming pool and bar on site definitely a bonus, food available too! Staff and owners very friendly and helpful (not to mention forgiving when we turn up late after getting side tracked by one of the many bars in town!). Room was cleaner, larger and in general nicer than expected considering the very good price! Would definitely recommend!

Good value for money on what is a pretty expensive island for accommodation. Away from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets and the steps leading up to it weren't that much of a deal. Island is small so only a stones throw from the bars and beaches. Very nice pool to chill out in as well. Only down side is that there didn't seem to be a secure luggage hold and no safe in the rooms. Safety deposit boxes at the reception though. Seemed pretty clean as we didn't see much in the way of critters

It's really not so far away and if you want to be able to sleep at night away from all the parties it's a good option. You have to walk a little bit but if you're in good shape it's not really a problem. However, our deposit got lost, I had my copy of the document so I got my money back (it was taken from other deposit because we were in a hurry) so be sure to keep all the documents until you check out. Either way I would recommend it and would come back.
