Good location just far away from the bars you don't here the music at night , but close enough to be in the centre .

We stayed at Banthai for 3 nights. I would say that the critic to Miss Lee is not deserved at all. Respect her property like you would respect anyones and she's a lovley sweet lady. If you're ignorant and don't care what she's saying, she will treat you the same way, like most normal people. Miss Lee is the reason...

Ok so I saw the reviews on here and thought twice about my booking but went anyway. As it turns out Ms Lee is a lovely lady the only thing is she is very traditional. It's tradition in Thailand to take off your shoes and she only asks you to wash them before you go to your room to keep...

I've never stayed anywhere that doesn't change your towel daily regardless off the cost it's just disgusting. Very rude Mrs Lee!! avoid her like the plague. Awful aircon that keeps you up all night and the remote gets confiscated like your a child?? Couldn't wait to leave!!!! Do not stay here!!!!

After reading the reviews, we considered booking somewhere else but on arrival it seemed okay. Apart from being told to take off our shoes when we were still carrying in suitcases. This is expected each time you enter the property. On first impressions, I thought the reviews about Miss Lee were a bit harsh. Friendly enough to us, remembered our...

Me and my wife stayed in an aircon room here for 1,000THB a night (£22). Previous to this we had walked around the island looking for somewhere to stay and thought the rate for this room was reasonable compared to everything else we found. Accommodation on the Koh Phi Phi seems to be more expensive than all the other islands...

The room was basic, the cleanliness was not good enough. It seems like there are heaps of rooms and backpackers there. The location was quite closed to city central. I did not have any issue staying there. The air con was good, everything was ok. But I remember an old lady (maybe she's the owner). She was a bit unfriendly,...

Horrific visit. We had a fight with the lady who owns the hostel because she wouldn't turn back on the water because we came into the hostel with sand on our feet. Bathroom was filthy, rooms were tiny.

The woman who runs it is crazy and not in a good way. When we arrived she was shouting at people charging them 500 Baht extra as they were trying to check out at 10.15. When they pointed out they weren't told checkout is 10am she no word of a lie just wrote a sign and stuck it to the...

We had a bad experience at this place. We found the woman who runs it, Mrs Lee, very rude. We would not recommend staying here. It brought me nearly to tears at how badly she treated us. She will not give you the remote for the aircon and there is no wifi in the rooms.
