    Worst place ever ”
    There is absolutely nothing positive to say about this place! It is far on a hill, dirty, old, holes everywhere, even on the mosquito net and very noisy from the music in the beach. I would definitely not recommend this to any one.

    A little too Expensive for what you get... ”
    We Came as a family of 4, all adults to stay in the bungalows,. Firstly we have to say although we had a pleasant stay, we wouldn't be returning. The Reason being was the huge hill you have to climb to reach the bungalows, 8x days of Trekking up and down this nightmare of a hill will not be missed at all! I would say even a person who is fit would find this hill testing. Would I say it hindered the holiday abut? Yes I would! So in our honest opinion, it's best to stay were you aren't seriously having a major challenge getting to your place of stay. Staff were lovely and I can't recommend the receptionist enough, always helpful and kind. Shame about the hill though.!

    Nice location uphill on the way to the view point. The bungalows situated in the garden with palms and have no shelves or some stand to put the things on so be prepared to use the floor for it. There were quite noisy till 2am because of the clubs situated on the north beach.

    I am giving a honest review yes there a hill to get up to the place but right went u doc off the boat they have some one to take your bags and walk with u to the hill and a mini van to drive u up the hill for free which was awsome and the staff are really nice any time u need water or tp they will give u for free and the hut is cozy yes there critters at night so use the net and Spray the net with misquito spray but other then that it's the cheep est place yull find for 2 people on the island and once u get to know the area it's by far bang for buck the best cus at night the music is very load and it's every night including week days Monday to Sunday and most of the places to stay are right near the beach and the music is on till about 3am so if u stay on the beach and u don't like the noise that good luck ever sleeping

    price, quiet, view
    Hotel was good, nothing fancy but exactly what you would expect from a basic bungalow. Just know that there is a huge walk up a hill to get to the bungalows so I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone that's out of shape. There's also the whole noise issue with the music coming from town until early in the morning. Bring earplugs

    Very simple hut, but comfortable enough for the cheapest price we found on the island in that period. The only issue is the noise at night that comes from the beach. Although is the price to pay for being well located near the party scene and all the nightlife!

    This is a bamboo bungalow, so you have to expect a bamboo bungalow. The staff is amazing, very friendly and helpful. The location is 10 mim walk from center, what is good because it's far from the night noise (and you still can hear) I recommend this place.

    Very nice bungalow in bamboo, people very helpful telling you about the island what to do and giving nice tips without being pushy. Speak english and french perfectly. Small inconvenient is the noise until 1:30am as if a disco was right next to us. Not the fault of the place just the sound from the party beach that is more than exagerate and that sounds over kilometers. We still recommend it warmly!

    The staff were so accommodating, it really made our stay special! The main man was full of tips about the island and helped us with our bags! Location is pretty far up the hill and the room didn't have air-con so we had a lot of mosquitos but they do provide nets! Would definitely recommend a short stay in the bungalows as the setting in beautiful and not to be missed!

    Best and cheapest bungalows on phi phi”
    Price started at 600 and later down to 500. including free water refills and tea/coffee. The staff are amazing and location is good its one of the quietest places on the island I think u would find
    Best choice to stay here. It is at the top of a big hill but they take all your bags and give you a lift when you arrive. Afterwards they give you a lot of lifts but its not that bad, you get used to it. The location is much quieter than the main town Staff are incredible, so kind and helpful. Genuinely nice people. Free water tea and coffee :) Bungalows are basic but you can't complain for the price. You get all you need plus I found the beds really comfortable. Cold shower but I was to hot for anything other than that! The bungalows don't look like much but the place is safe, the people lovely and the price is cheap... was perfect for us. Was supposed to stay 3 nights and stayed 8! Check out reggae bar at night :) so funny and best place we found to eat was called tom yam - cheap but great food

    Pleasant stay”
    value for money, quiet and peaceful, plain and clean.
    We stayed that for a night only. It was a pleasant stay for what we have paid for (around USD 17/night). The location was a bit of a walk from the 'city center' - about 10mins but otherwise, it is quiet and peaceful. It is located on the hill side, needs a little more effort for the ascend to reach the resort. Had a bit of problem with the bathroom as the drainage system was clogged, but the staffs were efficient and solved the matter promptly. The hut was cool, with basic utilities. A mosquito net for bed was provided. We recommend this place to couples/solo traveller whom on a tight budget.

    Get what you pay for”
    Nature, Nightlife, Price
    If you want to stay somewhere close to the nightlife but has the feeling of sleeping in the jungle - this is the place for you. It's cheap so don't expect any luxuries, and there's also bit of a hill you have to walk up for 5 minutes to get there. However it's close to the beach nightlife (about 10 minutes walk) and relatively close to the main town (about 15-20 minutes walk).

    This hotel is a bit of a hike up a hill, but there is a shuttle service which helps you move your luggage up the hill from the port. Even if you're pretty fit, I defy you not to be a bit out of puff when you reach the top! However, for that small downfall, there are a lot of upsides. The price is seriously under what it should be - the huts are so nice. The staff are very friendly too, and attentive. The bed is really comfortable, I had a great nights sleep there. Its far enough away from the main strip that you don't hear the noise which goes on until 5am, but close enough that its an easy walk back. We wished that we had booked here instead of our first choice for the entire stay!

    away from beach
    At night, there is usually a pandemonium at beaches of phi-phi. All the bars play loud music which I fear every resort at beach can hear. So, it's better to stay away from the main beach so that you can sleep. Phuttawan bamboo resort is uphill hide from view hut like resort. The rooms are made of bamboo. The rooms are non-A/c but it is simply what I was looking for. A budget trip to phi-phi. I learnt some Thai phrases, thanks to hotel staff at resort. don't forget to buy mosquito coils if required.

    We loved the night in the bungalow, because of its real and wild jungle feeling - nature around you, orchids on doorway and lizards walking around. Even the music from the beach and every sound of your neighbors were heardable, the price and emotion are very good plus lovely owners. Thank You!
