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)

Also…...

BIG storage lockers, (bring a padlock)
Wi-Fi
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!

BTW.
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 up..so 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

    Jason (who owns the hostle) was beyond helpful. He is English and knows the island off the back of his hand, so if you haven’t visited before I would highly recommend just on Jason’s knowledge alone. The hostle is ideal, a bed, shower and toilets. It is a very sociable hostle if you want it to be or it a great place to just have a bed as it’s bang in the centre of Phi Phi. If this is your first time DO stay here

    We really enjoyed Dormsin! Frank was extremely helpful with recommendations and even helped us book activities. The beds were comfortable and the room was nice and cold. The lockers were huge and allowed us to lock away all of our stuff. Would definitely recommend.

    It was exactly what I needed for a solo trip! I met wonderful people, the staff was friendly and super helpful, and it was close enough to the action to participate but far enough outside to get away when needed!

    Bed comfortable and not claustrophobic as I had worried. I think having so many beds in one room can make it a little harder to socialise. However if you are brave enough to start a conversation, you are bound to make friends. They have shower/toilets which at first I wasn’t too keen on but after using them they were fine. The staff were frequently cleaning so the room was kept very clean. Would stay again if I ever return to phi phi.

    The hostel is located in the heart of phi phi. I booked this place because of the comments about the owners being very helpful and they were right! The guys are very nice, fun and welcoming. They will give you all the tips on what to do, where to go, where to go out and what to expect whether you're staying for 1 night or 2 weeks.

    Way too small, tight space, no common area to socialize in, bathrooms were terrible and beds were super uncomfortable. Staff were great and it was clean. Frank was super helpful and was a wealth of knowledge when it came to what to do or see.
