Property Description

Hello and Welcome to Dormsin Koh Phi Phi, We are Frank (French Canadian) & Jason (UK). We’ve both lived and worked on Phi Phi, on and off, since 2011/12 (and have we seen some crazy, messed up stuff) we are backpacker friends who turned a holiday into an idea that turned into Dormsin…

Frank speaks French Canadian, French (Tabernacley different), Spanish, a little Fijian and is currently learning German...Jason, on the other hand, mumbles in English, although does have excellent mime skills.

When you book with us at Dormsin you are, not just, staying at Phi Phi’s best reviewed hostel, you are also getting the inside line to all our contacts (drinking partners), the island’s local people information (basically gossip) and real money discounts. (actually, this is true)

Dormsin is Phi Phi’s Original and Most Stylish Pod Hostel. With 18 pod beds set in ‘one grand room’(truc_m085019. 2018) with Stylish, Trendy décor and seating throughout.

Each of our Pods has full privacy, as well as a light, plug point, shelf, four hooks and a hands-free extremely bendable (A.I killer robot arm from the future*) to watch phones and tablets on.

All our linen is 100% Cotton, we also have hypo-allergenic pillows too (what was the world like before such inventions...truly savage dark times).
With our 24 cm thick spring mattresses, we think, this makes us the smartest, comfiest, most kitted out pods on the Island...we think you will too think that we thought about the thing you will think. Clear...Good. Moving on.

User warning:
When you spend the night in our comfy, quiet and darkened ‘womb-like’ pod (not a wet squishy sack) you are literally bordering on sensory deprivation. So, don’t do what one guy did...put on a blindfold and ear plugs inside his pod...he overslept and missed his dive by 5 hours...and watching him emerge dazed and confused, once we finally stopped laughing, we managed to pull a few strings and once the dive shop manager had stopped laughing, our customer did indeed dive the next day.

Introducing our ‘Boudoir' an area designed specifically for getting ready to go out, because as our friend said 'I do like a place to put my face on’...and it’s true, he really does.

Our Bathrooms are new, Stylish décor, with rainfall showers (Not Property Agent speak for 'hole in the roof' ) and amazing opening, closing and re-opening DOORS...which Frank made.
Trendy textured wall tiles that look...trendy and feel…textured. (and were a bugger to put up)


BIG storage lockers, (bring a padlock)
Three hot showers, obviously.
Free water, tea and coffee all day, (and hot chocolate when it rains) not so obviously. 
Quality Book Swap...we do not except swaps, for example, of a 3 page leaflet on Thai table manners for Shantaram. Capiche?
Staring into mirrors
Not staining sheets
TV series & Movies etc
.We don’t know why we bothered writing this personal Opus (look it up) nobody reads this far anyway, You’ll read half the intro and then go straight to reviews and photos. (Ok we do realise the irony in asking a question, with a proposition, that states nobody is reading the question)
So, if you are reading this, man you must be bored, but if you are, put the words free drink in the special requests option and when you book, your reading diligence/boredom threshold will be rewarded. We will also get an idea how many of you have read this far down…..empirically sciencey!

There is a reason we did not use capitals or speech marks or any other way of highlighting the words free drink (we are mentioning this it too many times) to camouflage the words and fool the people who are just speed scanning all this nonsense and their ‘party brain’ (neurologically proven term) picks up on the words free drink (Ssssssssh, ffs that’s three times now) and honed in. Hopefully, you found it through curiosity, captivation or even confinement. (ok this is a literation stretch, granted, but it holds just keep reading, you've come so far, your nearly there!)

To you ‘Party brain' people you should probably consider staying at a party hostel, we understand they offer free 'sand in your bed skin exfoliation process', wipe down mattress and vibrating beds that harness the awesome power of room shaking bass all night.

See you soon

Frank & Jason

    We had an amazing stay at Dormsin thanks to Jason and Frank. The hostel was clean, quite and perfect located to make the best out of our stay. Frank and Jason shared the secret favorite spots and through their knowledge made our experience of the island even better, thanks for that! We’ll be back.

    Great little hostel, Frank and Jason know everything to do on the island and will help with any inquiries you may have about Phi Phi. Lots of privacy in the pods and beds are comfy too. Short walk to all the bars but quiet at night if you want to rest. Great hostel and I will definitely stay here again if I’m ever back on the island!

    Definitely the best and most convenient hostel in Phi Phi! After a bad experience at a different hostel, I decided to give Dormsin a try for a night and ended up staying 3 nights. The beds are big and comfortable, everything gets cleaned multiple times a day. Most of all, Frank and Jason are the best people you will meet in Phi Phi! They really make sure that your trip becomes memorable. I will be back!

    Would definitely stay here again! Frank & Jason are so helpful. They know the island like the back of their hand! Discounts offered at several restaurants. Can buy ferry tickets directly from them! Provide clean towels and gigantic lockers!

    I’ve never actually bothered about leaving a review before but I feel like this place deserves it. Frank has been absolutely amazing and helpful during my stay. Even before I arrived I got an email with further instructions on the location. When I got to the hostel frank took the time to highlight in a map the main points of the island, explain tours, hikes, bars and others. The hostel is close to nightlife but is away from the noise. The room is cleaned often and the beds are comfy. Recommend!

    Chill hostel. It's basically just a dorm room but you get a good night rest. Showers are hot, room is cold. The owners are so kind and help you out with any questions about the island.

    Had a great time here. Never stayed in such a big form before but it wasn't too bad. It's not a party hostel which is perfect for those who like a quiet night in or just want to do their own thing. It's away from the party scene but quite central too. The owners were amazing and gave really is some really good places to go to and suggestions of what we can do in the island. It's also quite easy to meet people if you're traveling solo.

    As a relatively newly created hostel there were a few issues that arose. That being said, as a backpacker or a partier who wants a place to stay close to but far enough from the noise and the parties I could not recommend a place more highly. Frank and Jason were among the kindest hosts I have ever met and helped positively shape our trip ten fold. As hosts they not only helped recommend activities based on our wishes but helped make other suggestions as well. They make Dormsin worth your stay.
