|Partying up with travelers and Jojo at Tara Inn|
Room with fan - 500 baht (2 pax) 400baht (1pax) - negotiable if you are nice
Dorms - 200baht
If you are in PhiPhi to party, this is a good place to stay. First of all the owners are lovely. JoJo and Moon will always be there to help you out during your stay. The rooms are basic and clean, and if you have a problem it will be fixed up within a second. The location is ideal, right up at the start of the street leading to the main party beach. There is a shop right by it and a pharmacy to buy your bottle of water and your paracetamol for your hungover. In need of vitamin C? There is a fresh juice stall right by the reception.
I really enjoyed all my stays there. The only down side? The noise! Between the "boom boom pow" coming from the beach, and the drunken idiot screaming outside your door, it's hard to get some sleep. Unless that drunken idiot is you.
|The beach by SeaSandView Resort|
Bungalow with fan 500baht
The picture perfect little bay right in front or the bungalows is ideal for people seeking the cast away feeling. It's a little bit out of the way and has the advantage or being nice and quiet.
The bungalows comes with a balcony with chair and table. Again, clean and basic inside.
My favorite thing is that you can just wake up and jump in the sea in less that two minutes.
Bad point? The heat! These bungalows are HOT. So unless you want to splash on aircon, I hope you got used to the humid thai heat.
|Colorful marine house|
Room (2pax) with aircon - 900baht
A cute colorful tree style house next to the local food market. The marine house has a really chilled vibe, situated in a little street where the noise from the beach is not an issue. Remove your shoes before entering is required. The family that owns it is nice although speak barely any english.
The room are cozy, dark and refreshing in the sticky heat and the bathroom nicely decorated. There is even massive storage possibilities. And plus, their laundry service is quick and your clothes actually get washed. Ideal to relax in the fresh (artificial) air after long weeks of traveling.
So here are my favorite places to crash in PhiPhi if you are passing by. Stay tuned for an update on how to get cheap accommodation if you are staying for more than a month!
