We were welcomed by Miss Lee (Manager) within moments of arriving at this bustling guesthouse in the middle of Phi Phi town. She ushered for us to wait a few minutes and she would be with us. She took copies of our passports and then things changed, from here on she had our names memorized and every time we entered...

After reading the reviews i was really surprised. Banthai guesthouse is in a great location. Rooms very clean. The owner very helpful. Yes you have to take off your shoes but that is the same in most of asia. Great value for money. Close to beach and night life.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2015 and had a good stay. As everyone says Miss Lee has rules but she is just trying to keep the hotel in order. We found her to be very friendly, funny and helpful. The hotel is in a great location as its right by the nightlife but you aren't disturbed by...

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...

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...

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...

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...
