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 fantastic hostel, in a great location, perfectly set up for having the best time on Phi Phi. What makes it that bit better is the owner Jason, who was so helpful and just an all round decent guy giving great advice on how to get the most out of the island while you were staying there and also so great food and drink recommendations. This place helped me fall in love with Phi Phi.

    I can't recommend this hostel enough. Jason is the most amazing and helpful hostel owner we've ever met (we've been travelling for 3 months too) he helped us with literally everything. Every day we just said 'let's just ask Jason, he'll know what to do' and low and behold he always did. I can't wait to come back and see it when the refurbishments are done. The rooms are nice and it has a social environment when full. Thanks again for making our time there amazing.

    It was my first time travelling to Phi Phi and Jason was really welcoming! Good location and great atmosphere. Although it can get quite warm in the bunks during the day time, in the night it can get quite chilly. Nothing more to say, definitely will return here for sure. -jinn

    The hostel staff - Jason and Proiw - are very friendly and helpful. Even if the dormitory has more than 20 beds, everyone has their own space (the curtains provide some privacy). A lot of times per day I could see people cleaning the room and the bathroom. Water, coffee and tea are available in the dormitory. If you have a light sleep, you may need use earplugs because sometimes people coming from the parties are noisy.

    What Dormsin lacks in facilities it more than makes up for in the location and amazing staff. The hostel is in the center of town, super close to every shop, bar and beach. Shout out to Jason for being an amazing hostel owner and wealth of knowledge for Koh Phi Phi and the rest of Thailand. I would definitely stay here again!

    Jason was so welcoming and had great suggestions on where to go and what to see. I ended up extending my stay by 2 nights as I met some really nice girls there, the room never felt busy or crowded even though it’s 18 beds and there’s loads of toilet/showers so never had to wait. Would definitely stay there again if going back to Phi Phi as it’s far enough away so it’s so quiet at night but only a few minutes to the beach where all the parties are.

    This hostel was in a great location, it was easy to get to everything! The staff were also feta they have us lost of amazing tips and showed us where everything was. The hostel was fairly clean just abit run down. The showers were over the toilets and we're just in cubicles in a mixed bathroom. So does the job but might not be ideal for some people! Also the sliding door entrance to the room was broken for pretty much the whole stay, so anyone could come up from the street and just walk right in

    Basic but has all you need. Plug and light per bed and the filtered water tap is good as you can refill and not contribute to the plastic waste. The toilets and showers are in the same cubicle which I'm personally not a fan of. My sheet also had some suspicious stains on it and the easily guessable code to enter the room didn't fill me with confidence. There's not really anywhere to chill out, just the bedroom, so the atmosphere was a bit flat. However, Jason was very friendly and very helpful.
