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

    The location is amazing, right by the pier so no trek when you arrive and you are minutes away from some really fun bars/shops/restaurants/beach front. However, the best thing about our stay was Jason (and his lovely staff). He will make you feel so welcome and comfortable. We messaged him a couple of times asking for suggestions/help and he replied in seconds. He knows everything there is to know about Phi Phi so you’re in good hands! Would love to stay here again at some point!

    Jason was an absolute star! He was always on hand to give me recommendations and help me plan my days on Phi Phi. The hostel is amazingly situated right in the heart of the town but just far enough around the corner from the main bars and clubs to not be disturbed by the noise. The lack of hangout space does mean it could be harder to meet other travellers but the island is very social and this wasn't a problem for me.

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in by far! Not only do the staff go above and beyond but they also offer discounts and advice on the best things and places to do whilst in Phi Phi!

    Jason is wonderful and full of recommendations, and the location is great. There isn’t a common space and the toilets double as showers, but it’s an island and I doubt other hostels have better facilities. There’s a woman who cleans every few hours and that’s really nice for keeping the space tidy. I’d stay again.

    We had an awesome time in Koh Phi Phi and ended up extending our stay at the Dormsin by days. It was a little rough around the edges but the owner, Jason, made our stay incredible. We could tell he genuinely enjoyed giving his guests advice on all the best party places, restaurants, and local spots... and we were never disappointed! Thanks Jason for making Koh Phi Phi the best way to end our trip! Hopefully we’ll be back one day

    Dormsin is in a great location and it's very secure, but what really makes this hostel great is Jason. He welcomed us on arrival and immediately started helping us out with organising everything we needed. He is super honest and genuinely has your best interests at heart. He's very hands-on and will always be around or contactable if you need him. I recommend staying at this hostel :)

    Very Good

    Jason was super helpful, giving everyone tips on where to visit, eat and drink. The pod beds were comfy and did the job. However there is no socialising space, only beds and some benches. The bathrooms weren’t great, but apparently they’re being redone. Overall a good place to stay on phi phi if you want to party and sleep as it’s only a short walk away from the action, but not close enough to hear it once in bed

    If you literally just want a bed in a box with access to a shower and toilet this is the place for you. On that note the bed was comfy and good privacy. Zero common area. Don’t go here if you want to party, go to the beach hostels. On the bright side if your looking for less of a party experience and more touristy stuff in KohPhiPhi, the host, Jason, was a great guy and has lots of tips and advice on things to do. We got kicked out for partying too hard but no hard feelings

    This place is a s***. Bedsheets were stained and dirty. I woke up with some kind of bug bites that itch like hell. If that's not enough, the showers are inside the toilet cabins. It seems like they don't give a f*** about hygiene. Don't stay here
