Amazing location for backpackers, right near the bars and close to the beach! The manager Miss Lee makes it, she is very friendly and so helpful, she looks after all her guests and always takes the time to find out how your day was and check you're ok! If you are backpacking on a budget it is perfect as it... More

The basic clean accommodation is located in a brilliant location in between the beach, shops and bars. The manager Miss Lee is very friendly and welcoming - just make sure you take your shoes off when your inside. Given the location and the atmosphere I would say it is great value for money!

This is such a great location- right near the bars where it is all happening. Miss Lee the manager is great she looks after you, I wish she could manage every place I stayed! It is very basic but also cheap- so you get what you paid for. The rooms are cleaned everyday and in general the whole place is... More

Banthai Guesthouse is by far the best guesthouse ive stayed in while traveling south east Asia. Miss Lee the owner is a legend so friendly and kind and all the staff are amazing, your room gets cleaned every day with fresh sheets and clean towel. Miss Lee has been on the island for 16 years so knows everything about the... More

We moved to Miss. Lee's half way through our stay in Phi Phi and it was one of the best decisions we made. It's like staying with your wacky aunty. She has lots of rules (but hey! where would we be with some rules). She is warm, genuine and hilarious. Take her with a pinch of salt and enjoy the... More

Never before have I felt so unwanted in a place where I had paid to stay. The woman were angry and very rude. Never before have I met a person who is that bad with handeling customers. You do not feel welcome, and there are more stupid rules than beds in that place. At some point we ask her to... More

Our friend group booked this guest house for one night through our resort back in Patong. We stupidly didn't check trip advisor, as we thought it was only one night and was cheap. When we arrived, miss Lee was going off at multiple people in reception, she demanded our passports and 1000baht per person as a bond. She also told... More

Stayed here for three nights in a fan room. It's hot at night so I would advise air con. Miss Lee the owner is scary! There's no reasoning with her and she talks to you quiet aggressively. It says there's free wifi but it's only in the lobby area and she switches it off at 9pm. If you want it... More

We stepped into Koh Phi Phi without knowing where to go, found Ban Thai and with the price of 700 baht for two beds, fan and private bathroom it became our first option. It seemed alright at first, simple with all the necessities (having used the bin for tissue paper instead of the toilette for a month this didn't concern... More
