“nice quiet area”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We only stayed here for 2nights, good location in a quiet bit but still close to restaurants and bars, and cheap for an island. We were out most of the day so only wanted something basic to sleep in, which is what Phi Phi dream is. Very basic with a small bathroom. Clean, although our bedding had lots of black marks on it-and there's signs on the door saying not to stain your bedding or you'll get fined 1,000 baht so i made sure i let them know.

The only bad thing which was very annoying is the aircon that we had to pay for, and when we got it it was extremely noisy and made the whole wall shake. It was like being on a very old boat because it was so noisy-we had to switch it off the first night as it kept us both awake which is so frustrating. It might not be like that in all the rooms, but certainly ours! I know it's a basic place to stay, but I expect if you pay for aircon you'd at least get it so it worked properly.

Thank you for your review on this page.
I'm sorry you didnt have a good experience ...with regard air cond,i hope you were able to tell reception about this disadvantage ,so that we can fix it.Our maintenance man is on PP island every days.
Some guests put fan position gives them a bad sound.
all air cond on this Guest House have two years with good maintenance ,neverthless we are not immune to any incident.
Regard to the sheet....we must asking extra cleaning charges when we find it incredibly dirty .
Until now no extra charges application for all ladys who do not remove make up before sleep.Good news ...we just find the solution for remove stains of mascara.
Please to receive apologies for any inconvenience encountered.
Thank you for your visit
Best regards

My original experience of Phi Phi Dream was good, cheap and a good location.
However my GoPro went missing from my room, of which I didn't notice until i was back on Phuket.
I rang Phi Phi Dream over 10 times, of which every time i rang and told them of the stolen property they hung up on me instantly.. leaving a sour taste in my mouth and thinking one of the staff was accountable for the theft, as they were the only other people with a key to the room.
I am grateful for travel insurance, however I lost 3 weeks worth of Memories.

For this reason I would not recommend Phi Phi Dream to anyone.

Be careful people

Sorry in advance for my written english which you will probably find as bad as the mark you gave us.

Thank you very much for your comment attesting a honest value-for-money on Phi Phi Island.

Nevertheless, about the lost of your GoPro - We told you by phone during your second call that nothing was found. For the information, we still have and keep a Canon camera which was forgotten in one of our rooms during high season .

Safety boxes are provided in each room, and we told you to use it when your checked in. Our guest house is one of the only one in Koh Phi Phi where we clean the rooms daily, so yes, indeed, we do have the keys to make this service available. Nevertheless, we ask for your kind cooperation by putting your valuable stuff in the safety box when you're outside your room.
We don't have your GoPro - Our receptionist Jenny told us about your complaint and we responded quickly by putting a new sign at the reception and in all the rooms, repetting to use the safety box...

Thank you for reconsidering the interest we gave you.
Best regards,

We stayed here for 3nights and were apprehensive as to what phi phi dream would be like due to hearing how dirty some of the hotels and island could be. However we were pleasantly surprised with the rooms being a good size and extremely clean. The hotel is located in a good area away from all of the noise but close enough to walk to the beach and nightlife, taking only 5minutes. The shower head was positioned over the toilet meaning everywhere got wet however it wasn't too much of a problem as the rooms were cleaned everyday. Accomodation seems to be more expensive in phiphi in general but we think that paying a little bit more for a quiet, clean room was worth it.

Ko Phi Phi can be a bit noisy. So you need to stay somewhere that misses that noise.
For about $40 a night this place answers all the questions. It is only 5 minutes walk from the beach, bars and noise - but it's only 5 MINUTES walk to get back to them.
So you can have quiet restful sleeps but still enjoy that party atmosphere.
24 hour security. Clean,
...and did I say quiet.

Room Tip: Front, balcony rooms are worth that couple of dollars more. And it's only 100 THB more for airco...

Our three nights on Phi Phi were lovely. Phi Phi Dream helped make that happen. The place was out of range of the party zone and the noise. It was at the foot of the stairs to the lookout. We paid the extra $3 a night for a/c when we arrived and it was worth it. At about $40 a night without breakfast it seemed about the best of the budget types.
It was clean and comfortable with a big bed and a shared balcony. 24hour security. About 5 minutes walk to the beach. Staff were always pleasant and the whole place was very clean. We would have liked a couple of chairs in the smoking area but I can understand them discouraging group behaviour and accompanying noise. This place was very quiet.

Located in the centre but far enough from the noisy banging bars and beaches in the evening, this hostel is also the most inexpensive of its kind.

Rooms are clean and spacious.

This place is also recommended by the Guide du Routard, which is the French equivalent of the Lonely Planet.

Just walk from the pier in direction of the View Point to find this place.

Wifi access from the rooms and speed was quite good compared with other cafes on the island.

Rooms have windows and it is a quiet place. With all the noise and parties around, it is nice to have a quiet place to stay in.

Internet wifi works fairly well.

It is easy also access and central, near the beach and all bars and restaurants, but located in an quiet street behind the banging busy streets.

Staff is nice and speaks good English. The place is also recommended in the "Guide du Routard", the French version of the Lonely Planet, as an additional reference.
