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

    Dormsin is a great place if you want a little retreat from the sometimes overwhelming Phi Phi island but you don’t want to have to walk all the way back to a boutique hotel every time you want it! Dormsin is in a perfect central location and has everything you need. Not really any common area but the whole island is right outside and super friendly so this is a good home base! Jason was amazingly friendly and helpful with suggestions about the island and anything you want to do on it!

    Jason was really helpful with guiding us around the island and telling things to do/things not do. The atmosphere is what you make of it, nothing is forced upon you but everyone who we met staying there were good fun.

    Had a good stay here despite one issue we had. Jason is really helpful and knowledgeable about things to do. He was very quick to act with the issue we had and had everything sorted as quickly as he could. The only suggestion would be to have proper checks done every 2 days or so. Met some cool people here and would recommend you stay here too. The phone holders are cool too but I never got to use them because I was always out enjoying the island.

    Super nice staff that offers so many suggestions and discounts at local restaurants/bars. Everything was very nice except there was a lot of sand on the floor. Obviously, this is an island, but it’s still something that could be improved

    We we’re welcomed by Jason who gave us the full speech about what to do and see and how and where to do it. We were only there for one day, so he really wanted to organize the day as best as possible - huge thanks for that. The only some what kind of negative thing to mention, was the mattresses; they were to hard for us. I had s fan pointed directly at me, while sleeping with a sheet as the only cover and froze the entire night - sadly. Other than that, it was a super nice stay. Thanks Jason!

    this is a highly social hostel and you'll never feel alone, always someone inviting you to do something with them! location is absolutely perfect, on a quieter road but a 1 minute walk from all the hustle and bustle. the greatest reason to stay here is the hostel owner, Jason. his information, honesty and recommendation is second to none. this hostel isn't the prettiest, but definitely makes up for it in every other way.

    Jason was really nice guy very helpful however bed's weren't that great holes in mattress cover and it's kinda like sleeping in a coffin however location is very good. Pity there wasn't a communal area here.

    Hospitality from the owner was great as his recommendations of where to go (food/bars/viewpoints/beaches etc) lived up to better than expectations! However, on a sad note, the pod-hostel is one where as soon as you open the front door you enter your bedroom! So no lounge area where you can chill. Bathroom + cubicles very small. Doors to close the shower/toilet area had large gaps so you could see through them. Shower was too close to toilet so your leg would touch the toilet. Would not recommend
