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

    Overall a very nice place to stay when your at Kho Phi Phi. Was very pleased with the capsule-like beds... good privacy and comfortable matresses. Just a bit to improve the cleaniness of the Restrooms....

    The beds are capsule design with a curtain which makes your bedspace a nice private area if you want some peace and quiet. There is a shelf a plug and bedside light. At the end of the bed is a space for you to put your belongings and you can lock it with your own padlock to keep your things secure. The upstairs area is spacious and has a balcony. The shower/toilets are OK. The staff come and clean the showers and toilets but the sinks looked dirty and there was no soap (during corona is a MUST)

    Great value and away from the crazy party areas. So it is quiet at night. Each bed is in its own cubby with a small privacy curtain so sound from others is minimal. It’s a simple place to rest the head at night. I would stay again. They provide drinking water and insta coffee.

    Staff was very helpful. Owner was hilarious and made everything awesome. Large room with no lobby. People came back drunk and got a bit loud some nights. I wish I had a thicker blanket but I wasn’t cold at night. Bring your own lock bc the lockers are huge and fit your bag and everything, loved that. Some cats try to get in the room so need to keep the door shut bc they can bite (one bit me) but at least they’re cute. Bring your own soap to wash your hands. Lots of toilets and showers available

    Bed was good I like the private pods. Air conditioning could have been alittle higher at night, pod kind of prevents air circulation. Also bed blanket was a small sheet and towel would cover a child . Showers weren’t cold. But not hot either. Ans drains didn’t drain well. The staff that worked there was super nice. Very nice ladies. They made up for the above said deficiencies. Just by being pleasant to work with.

    Stayed 4 nights across NYE - good location in town that means you’re set back from all the party noise but easy to get to it when you want. Dorm was busy with so many beds which meant noise can be an issue, especially as there isn’t a common area to hang out just sofa in dorm room so people in there to chat not just sleep - gets noisy! Shame there isn’t a better common space to hang and meet people. Bed comfy and super private and lockers huge!

    Wasn’t as clean as I imagined it to be and the WiFi was spotty at best. It was in a great location so if you don’t plan on hanging out on the hostel and just need a place to crash that is what I recommend you do.

    This place is literally a bed and bathroom. Don’t expect anything more. Bathroom and shower are some of the smallest I’ve seen in my travels. Everyone left all their things all over the place and it’s a cramped space already. Staff didn’t seem to care. I don’t expect a lot from hostels, I understand what I’m paying for but this place was really bad.

    The location is good but the hostel was overall pretty dirty. The bathrooms were gross and the pods had stains on the walls (like they weren’t cleaned for years) and we found a bug in the sheet. The entire time there was no hand soap in the bathroom. Definitely nicer places for less money, not worth it.
