“Compared to everywhere else on phi phi this is great!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

Unfortunately the accomodation on koh phi phi is really disappointing. We stayed on the island 4 nights and went somewhere different each night due to either everything being booked, it being ridiculously expensive or finding out that the staff beat their customers when checking out 5 minutes late!

Luckily our reason fore leaving phi phi dream was that they were booked! We would have loved to stay there the whole time!

The previous night as backpackers we 'splashed out' on andaman beach resort for 1550 baht a night and I can honestly say that our room at phi phi dream was 5 times as nice. It's basic but the bed was comfy and the room was homily and everything worked. Which we found out is harder than you think to find at phi phi!

Maybe our room was especially nice but either way if I was going again if just check in here my whole time to put your mind at ease.

If this hotel was anywhere else in Asia I would have maybe given in average or very good but considering the other options, phi phi dream was excellent for us!

Stayed here this week for 2 nights and at £10 a night it was a bargain.
It's close to the bars, short 5mins stroll and equally close to the beach or the viewpoint.
Rooms were cleaned every day and well kept, good tv channels and a safe in the room. Bathroom was ok, clean but didn't smell great... I assume the drain doesn't drain too well as it always a little unpleasant smelling after showers.
People who run the please are really nice and smiley and happy to help. I would defiantly recommend if you want a good location, nice service and decent rooms.

Great location but the air con in my room was faulty at although they tried to fix it was still not working. I was never asked if I wanted to change room but overall everything was good. I'd stay there again.

The room itself was okay, the beds were reasonably comfortable and it was kept pretty clean. As with other reviews, we agreed that the bathroom had issues. The smell is pretty pungent, especially after rain (which unfortunately came down for most of our trip to Phi Phi!). The shower is also pretty poor, the stream was really weak and it was barely lukewarm. It is also a sort of 'wet room' configuration, which we've come across a lot during our travels in Thailand. However here the shower was pointing directly over the toilet, so unless you were sat/stood on the toilet, you got a pretty pathetic shower.

The location is good, it wasn't too noisy, and not too far from bars and restaurants. It's also located at the bottom of the steps to Phi Phi viewpoint, definitely worth a visit! We found it difficult to find good value accommodation in Phi Phi which didn't have terrible reviews, and Phi Phi Dream seemed like the best of a bad bunch (unless you have lots of money!). It was more expensive than what we have paid for other guesthouses/hotels in Thailand (of vastly better quality..), but even the price of 7-eleven water is hiked up in Phi Phi so I guess that is to be expected!

By the way, thanks for saying our prices are low ... 400 baht or 600 baht with air,Cable Tv, shower ,daily room cleaning ,fresh towels,free wifi and now free computer down in agency... Perhaps why until now we are for you "the best of a bad bunch ".
We apprecieted you honest review ,that motivates us to improve more and more .

We found Phi Phi Dream through recommendation of a girl working at one of the scuba shops on Phi Phi, she is living there whilst she's working on the island. The resort we were staying in was expensive, not the best location and no where near to a good standard. The receptionist at Phi Phi Dream was welcoming, hospitable and friendly and We were able to see the rooms before committing to them which is always a bonus. It was 600TBH per night which is most definitely one of the cheaper guesthouses on the island. It was well organised and they were very persistent when it came to people/guests being quiet after 8pm so people could sleep which rang true - great, in disturbed nights sleep the whole time we were there. Rooms are cleaned and made up every day and there is a balcony to hang your things to dry, plus a cheap laundry service. There is air conditioning as well as a fan and the rooms are basic but have good bedding compared to the sheets I've been given in other places, a TV, a safe and hanging space for clothes. The bathroom was small and compact and the only negative I would say was there was a slight "sewery" smell from the bathroom but I do think, after visiting Thailand a couple of times, that this is difficult to avoid because of their plumbing systems particularly on Phi Phi. It was nothing horrendous and didn't really have an impact on our stay. Wifi is available and they do say that it can be slow at times but there's an Internet cafe just below the rooms that you can use free of charge as long as you show your room key which was great! The location is nice, just out of the "centre" of Phi Phi village so you have access to the main areas when you want it but also peace and quiet to sleep at night which was important to us. Everything was made simple and easy at Phi Phi Dream, it was cost effective for someone who is travelling Asia for 3 months, a nice standard to enjoy spending time on the room and friendly staff that are easy going and there if you need help.

I have stayed in phi phi many times. Usually pick a hotel over a guesthouse but I booked last minute this time. I couldn't have picked a better place. The hotel receptionist and had us checked in very quickly. The guesthouse was spotless and always being cleaned. Rooms were spacious and pleasant. Will definitely be back to phi phi dream and will recommend to everyone I know visiting the island. Hidden gem for budget travellers.

I've stayed on phi phi several times and have always booked into a more pricey resort thinking there wasn't many good guest houses around. I stumbled across this place during a panic to find a room for a few nights. Ended staying over a week. Best stay ever in phi phi. Staff were amazing. Always cleaning and place was spotless. As for noise you get the odd person shouting late at night but name me somewhere not like that on the island. Highly recommend to everyone on any budget. 1/10 of the price I usually pay and 5 times better.
