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

    Ill b back🚀 Gr8 space and vibe. Very central without the noise and drama. Food and fun and beach r a stone throw away. Clean, sleeping area, clean bathrooms and space to chill and read or relax or both. Jason is everything all the reviews say and his staff are the same. Save your money to spend on other things if you are independent and don't need butlers, BS and big bills♥️😎🇨🇦

    Staff are very polite and accommodating. We had to push our booking back because my friend was ill and Jason sorted this for us without charge. We didn’t stay for our whole booking because I then got sick so checked into a hotel but would 100% recommend

    This place is perfect if you are looking for a cheap place to stay in Koh Phi Phi, its your basic bed with a curtain, shower and free towel situation but considering the price of most places in Phi Phi this place worked a treat. Even in an 18 bed dorm there was never too much noise, everything would always quieten down around 9-10pm. Very chilled place in the middle of the madness and also perfect location for bars and restaurants.

    This place is so different to any other hostel I have stayed. It’s one room full of bed - so no real privacy outside of the bed . But because of the close quarters you get to know everyone and it’s an amazing place to meet other travelers. The location is perfect !

    Very Good

    PROS: Run by great people and capsules are actually great. Theres hooks inside, lockers at bottom and I particularly liked the phone mount which lets you watch movies and youtube on your phone with ease. Had no issues meeting people CONS: Washroom needs to be worked on. I really wanted to like this place more but the water would just not run at times like at night when I want to shower off all the sweat and grossness. Once the water came out brown so I just brushed my teeth with bottled water.

    Despite what it says on their listing, they don't accept credit cards. No common room kinda sucked for meeting others as the only areas are sleeping ones. No lines for hanging clothes to dry (on an island... With beaches) meant people left clothes all over the place wherever they could. Wet room (shower/toilet stall) were super cramped. Not a terrible hostel but also not one that I understand how they have such a high rating and price.

    This hostel is very expensive compared to what you get. You are in a dorm with 10-20 people so it is very loud. And there is no lounge or community effort. It's just an expensive bed stacked beside rows of expensive beds.. Staff is excellent though.

    Take your own locker. There was no common room at all which is not good for solo travellers. Still met some people in my room which was nice

    Good location, away from the beach party. Jason was super friendly and helpful. Rooms and shower/ toilet combo quite dirty. We had a leak in the roof after a night of raining. Lockers didn’t fit all my things in. A lot more expensive than other nicer hostels.

    Location and staff were great. The water never worked at nights and we were told "it's just something that happens when we're busy" - they didn't tell us at check in. Showers were often clogged and flooding the bathroom. The toilets were in good condition.
