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 decor 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 decor, 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

    This was the best hostel I’ve stayed in. Jason was such a great host and I felt so at home. I planned to stay for 2 days and extended to 8! The recommendations I got given for day trips etc. made my time so special and I made some great friends and memories I’ll cherish forever. Phi Phi and Dormsin have a place in my heart

    The best hostel I’ve stayed in!! Perfect middle ground between sociable and private. You can still get involved in all the phi phi partying while having somewhere quiet and relaxing to go back to. The facilities were clean and safe. Above anything, the staff are amazing. Jason is the friendliest and most active hostel owner I’ve come across and full of great tips for the island! I wouldn’t hesitate to come back when back on Phi Phi

    Couldn’t have asked for a better stay in Phi Phi, perfect location, Jason was super helpful and gave all good recommendations and helped to book boats etc. Everyone in hostel was so lovely and atmosphere was really good. Especially loved the water fountain in the room giving fresh water whenever you needed, a really nice touch!!

    Great place! The accommodations were clean and comfortable and in a convenient location (a short walk just far enough from the bars to be quiet at night). Jason was a friendly source of information and helped with booking tickets, finding things to do and places to eat.

    Best hostel we’ve been to, beds are super comfy and feel very private. Can’t fault the facilities, not as budget friendly as the party hostels but it’s 1000% worth it as everything was impressively clean, we went to the beach parties and came back to dormsin which was peaceful and really secure. The owner Jason makes the stay, he knows the island well and was around all the time to sort out trips for us, in the quiet nights he’d put on movies for us and in the day he’d help make sure your plans were sorted for the day.

    Pros: towels provided, lockers are huge, Jason and staff are the BEST by getting everyone involved and helping with literally anything, good aircon in dorm, loads of showers, the best location to everything, total privacy in bed, Cons: beds are hard, only little sheet provided as a cover at night Literally the best place for solo or group travellers, definitely stay here!!!!

    Already recommended Dorms to some friends. Amazing hostel with a nice vibe. Jason helped me plan my itinerary and organised a great boat trip for the whole hostel. Also… if you want some sleep but still like to party, dorms is perfect. Lovely people

    Really fun and social hostel! Jason is a great host and gets everyone involved and makes sure you have plans each day and helps you book things. The facilities are basic but clean and the beds are comfortable.
