This guide is perfect for YOU, when …

  • tired of bad and crappy hostels
  • want to avoid the “young party kids”
  • happy to spend 1-2€ for a better experience

There are so many beautiful places to see in this part of Asia, which is why we put together a guide to the 57 best hostels in Thailand.

We cover in this article:

Quick Introduction to Koh Phi Phi

Average price for a bed: Hostels in Koh Phi Phi cost 5€ – 14€ per night for a bed in a dorm. A private room starts from 20€ up to 30€ per night. This is a rough average just to give you an idea.

Prices always depend on season and holidays. Please always check exact rates on Hostelworld.com or Booking.com.

Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.

Koh Phi Phi vs Phi Phi Islands: Don’t let the two names confuse you – they refer to the same place! Koh is simply the Thai word for ‘island’.

The 3 Best Hostels in Koh Phi Phi

Let’s jump right into the boutique hostels in Koh Phi Phi.

  1. Dormsin
  2. Voyagers Hostel
  3. Blanco Beach Bar Hostel

Overview: Best Hostels by Traveler Type

🦸 Solo Traveler: Voyagers Hostel
🙎‍♀️ best for Female Solo Traveler: Voyagers Hostel
🥳 Party Hostel:Blanco Beach Bar Hostel
👩‍❤️‍👨Couple Hostel: Ibiza House Pool
👨‍👩‍👦 Family Hostel: Ibiza House Pool
👩‍💻 For Digital Nomads: Dormsin
🎒 For Backpackers: Dormsin

We put all three accommodation on the map, you will find the map at the end of the article.

1. Dormsin Hostel

Wander in to Dormsin and quickly become friends with the funny, experienced backpacker friends Frank and Jason.

They’re not randoms, but owners of this budget friendly and intimate hostel in Koh Phi Phi.

These guys turned a holiday in to an idea and birthed Dormsin Koh Phi Phi Hostel for fellow backpackers to enjoy.

Be sure to test their knowledge and have a chat with these two. They love to divulge local secrets, so we hear.

Want to hear something else cool? Always.

This place has just one – yes one – room!

It is in fact home to 18 wonderful pod beds and even has a seating area to encourage socialising.

Quite important as it happens because it has been known for people to get a little too comfy inside their pod.

It’s no wonder when each pod has:

  • Linen & 24cm thick mattress
  • Reading light
  • Plug point
  • Hands-free bendable arm (for phones/ipads)
  • 4 hooks & shelf

And before panic sets in, we can confirm that each bed also has a privacy curtain. This is really one of the best Koh Phi Phi island hostel.

Should you want to store your things safely, remember your padlock and make use of the HUGE lockers.

No great hostel would be complete with free Wi-Fi (check) and a quality book swap (also check).

If you plan to paint the town red, make use of the handy ‘Boudoir’ which was specially designed with getting ready in mind.

Location: close enough to all the major bars and cafes, yet far enough from the noise. Loh Moo Dee beach is under 2km away from Dorms.

2. Voyagers Hostel

You just know a hostel is going to be cool when literally all of their photos include people having an awesome time!

Voyagers Hostel is obviously all about the social vibes and inclusive atmosphere.

Whilst the hostel itself isn’t overally impressive in terms of design and amenities, it more than makes up for it with the awesome location and easily ability to meet new people.

There is only shared accommodation here, with just one 10-bed mixed dorm on the property. This makes it extra intimate and supportive of making great connections.

Just make sure you beat your mate to the bottom bunk as it comes with a privacy curtain!

What else?

  • Fully air-conditioned
  • Light & charging point on each bed
  • Communal area
  • Key card access
  • Free snacks and drinks

Voyagers is close to the beach but it also happens to be located in a quieter area where you get a break from the loud music.

This makes it a good choice if you prefer to get a good night’s sleep!

What about cheapest hostels in Koh Phi Phi?

Of course, there are always cheap hostels.

Keen readers will have noticed that all 3 of the best hostels in Koh Phi Phi are perfect for solo travellers.

Instead, there is a mix of privacy pods and open, classic bunk beds for the more sociable.

Our top choice? Easily #2 Voyagers Hostel.

It’s an intimate accommodation with just one 10-bed dorm.

Party Hostels in Koh Phi Phi

Looking for Koh Phi Phi party hostel? Sure, there are some crazy party hostels in Koh Phi Phi that will have you up all night and constantly amongst the music.

Yet, as we promised earlier; this guide aims to avoid the “young party kids”.havo

That’s why we recommend Hangover Hostel Koh Phi Phi as a good party hostel option. It is also near to beach bar.

As we mentioned earlier, this is more of a base to get the night started.

Meet friends in the big dorms, have a few drinks outside and then hit the nearby parties.

There are no crazy activities or drinking games, so the party pressure isn’t intense.

If you decide not to continue the party, enjoy a quiet night’s sleep as everyone else heads in to town.

Closed: @The Pier 519 Hostel

Without doubt @The Pier 519 Hostel will leave you saying “what a pleasant stay” on your way out.

This cute little hostel houses just 3 different rooms plus a terrace area where you can relax and chill.

It’s actually very easy to meet people here because of the small space.

Start your stay with a friendly welcome from staff. It will be enough to keep the smiles flowing to everyone in your room!

All of the rooms are mixed dorms, ranging from 14-16 beds.

So although the social spaces are minimal, the rooms create a perfect opportunity to get chatting.

Having said that, it’s also possible to enjoy some privacy.

Each dorm bed includes:

  • Privacy curtain
  • Power outlets
  • Reading light
  • Under bed storage

No one will be upset if you decide to close the curtain on the world – that’s what it’s there for.

Note: this hostel only accepts payments in cash.

There’s also a handy tour desk at reception if you have any questions or need ideas.

This is truly one of the best hostels in Koh Phi Phi if you’re looking to enjoy a quiet stay close by to the nightlife.

Basically: party hard locally and return to @The Pier for a good night’s sleep.
