Little bit of a walk with a big hill but not as bad as had expected, Basic rooms and washroom
firstly, it is FAR from town and up one of the steepest hills in existence. when we arrived we found out that we had to pay extra if we wanted air con and hot water - at ridiculous prices (both of which were not specified on hostelworld when we booked it). bungalow full of holes, bathroom barely had a roof, and piece of string to tie front door (felt v unsafe). however, when we left the same day - staff did refund us 2 of the 3 nights booked.
The huts are super authentic and very relaxing! It was nice to have your own bathroom with a working shower & toilet for around the same price as group dorms in other hostels on the island. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were all clean. Only downfall is the GIANT hill you have to hike to get to this place, but it overlooks the whole island, which is nice & not as loud as being in town (only a 8 minute walk to everything though!). No central lounge area to meet people
Fairly expensive, but everything on Phi Phi is. Nothing fancy but each room has wifi, an ensuite
Worst location possible nowhere near anything on top of a huge hill thats only accessible by foot at night when its impossible to see, i never stayed at the resort because i was so disgusted with the location and state of the cabins when i arrived i wasnt charged for my booking but they would not refund the deposit i paid online there is lots of places to stay in phi phi i wouldnt waste my holiday staying there

Very nice bamboo cottages with mosquito net and own bathroom, one of the few showers with decent water pressure. Nice staff, made us a Loi Krathong! Unfortunately very loud music from tonsai beach until late night.
We stayed here for 1 night. The accommodation was okay if you are just stopping for a short visit. As everyone mentions there is a steep hill but it's not too bad. We were collected from the pier and we had a 10 minute walk to the resort, but we didn't have to carry our bags. When we got to the infamous steep hill there was a truck waiting for us so you don't need to worry about climbing up it with luggage.
