We had stayed in bungalows similar to these before which were riddled with bugs so I was pleasantly surprised to find that these ones werent! The pool is nice and the beds are comfortable and although it is right next to the town, it is a bit of an uphill trek.
Also keep an eye out for monkey neighbours! I walked out of my room one morning to find two large monkeys sat on my porch!

This place from the ferry port is atleast a 10 minute walk up hill so if your unfit or have heavy bags prepare yourself. The actual place is fine and the rooms are clean enough ALTHOUGH we had bed bugs and I was bit many times within the 3 nights there. It's only until we pulled the mattress up to find blood stains we realised. The pool area is friendly which is good for young travellers. There is a big water reservoir next to the place but if your in the pool you'd never know. Didn't interact much with staff but they where helpful if needed. Would recommend here but you could probably find same price closer to the action. Although this is a good option if you want to be out the way of it.

We are seasoned travellers and have had our fair share of bad luck when in comes to accommodation! but this was an all time low!! And the first time that we've ever felt that we have to write a "terrible" comment.
We had already booked and therefore paid on arrival but would rather loss the money than stay here, so after 3hours we left.
Dirty, yellow marks on the towels and sheets, hair on the pillow cover!! It was obvious that the bedding had not been washed.
also the hostel is situated at the edge of a plastic dam, not the nicest of places.
Anyway we decided to leave at 3pm, reception was extremely rude!!!! At first we didn't mention why we were leaving; she didn't even bother to ask what was wrong!! When we said "looks the sheets are dirty." She didn't even look at us, let alone speak to us.
The worst service we've ever experienced.

We stated here for 6 nights during our time in Phi Phi.
It is out of the centre but as with everywhere on the island within walking distance.
The rooms were nice and had air con and the pool was great but did get quite busy.
Staff were friendly and great when we asked to stay an extra night.
Would definitely recommend to stay here.

I went to Phi Phi twice in Jan, the first time I had already booked elsewhere but the 2nd time we booked on arrival at the pier - I had seen reviews for Golden Hill already online but was put off - anyway, it was the only place in our price range so we went for it and I'm so glad we did !!
The rooms are basic but if you're not fussy they are fine. The pool makes the place, it's great for meeting people and hanging out if you feel rough after a party. Wild monkeys are on site too, loved them!
The family that run this are lovely and the little twin girls are so cute. I had to leave to travel on and my friend left too but he's back already !

The pace itself is ok. You get what you pay for it. The rooms are clean enought, and the place has a relaxed vibe, and great location. The staff was super friendly, and even managed to find and send a passport to the right location. :)

We stayed for 6 nights and had a great time. The pool is nice and the rooms are good, I'd say this place is mostly for young people who want to party. It's great for the price. We didn't have any complaints at all. Beautiful views from the balcony as well. Wasn't to far from everything, about a 5 minute walk
