Amazing place to stay in crazy party island like Koh Phi Phi... the main area is only 5 min walk away and you also have lot of food places just next door with very cheap prices.we stayed in one of the bungalows on the side of the hill. the climb up there yes was a little tiring but it's OK eating all that good food you need a little exercise. lot of monkeys around there to so it's like staying on a little private dzungl.pool is amazing to and the bar next to it. nice and quiet in the night time.


This place was very dirty and small. Not a good price or spot for your money! Overall, I would not recommend the Golden Hills Bungalow to anyone traveling on a budget.


This hostel is very far. Although it may advertise it is close to the beach/pier and the time distance is correct, it is EXTREMELY uphill and a trek up to your room. The rooms were sparse and dirty, and no one came to clean our room. Our towels smelled like a zoo and were questionable if clean or not. There was no AC, and the wifi never worked from our room. The shower never had hot water (although it was pretty hot so we were able to make do). Everything was poorly lit, and dirty.


Perfect stay if you decide you might want to sleep since you can't hear the partying; but also just a short walk from the party. Clean rooms, but pretty hot. The AC didn't work, and the fan only works when the key is in the room. Bathrooms are good, though you can hear everyone outside the room pretty clearly from them.


About 15 min from the pier by foot. Cleanliness could be highly improved, just as the leaking ceiling... Nevertheless a cheap and not too noisy option to other hostels on Koh Phi Phi.


We stayed at Golden Hill Bungalows for a night. It's a bit off the centre up in the hills but that was okay because we wanted to get to the viewpoint anyway which was on the way. The place was alright. It's basic but nothing to complain about. The weird thing was that the walls of the bathroom didn't go all the way up to the ceiling so it's kind of "open". You have to hang your keys at a hanger near the reception which says "Clean the room" or something to get your room cleaned up.


Average hotel with small rooms. Probably the furthest away hostel but was not a massive walk away as Phi Phi is a small island so a lot of hostels were this way too. A window in our room was smashed when we arrived, but didn't cause a problem as it was small. Small pool which people used daily. Monkeys on the roof one afternoon which was funny!

Very Underrated hostel. It's cheap, the staff are friendly, it has a pool, it's a SHORT walk to the village and beaches (I mean like 5/10 minutes), hot showers and air con. It also looks nice. I have stayed at far worse places that are rated higher. Should be over 80%
