Cheap air-con dorm
One of the cheapest spots to be found on Phi Phi, Ploy has 14 beds in two mixed dorm rooms with air-con and WiFi included.
Most of the beds are single, plus there are two bunk beds – same price regardless of the bed type. An upstairs private room with a double bed is also available here, and reasonably priced for the location. Found in the centre of Ton Sai village next to Cosmic 2 restaurant, don’t expect any peaceful nights at Ploy. The sliding glass doors to the ground-floor dorm are left open and we never saw any staff on site, so be sure to make use of the free lockers. To book in person contact staff at Cosmic 2 if there’s no one at reception. If this is full try JDai Dorm across the road, which has a similar set up at the same prices. Its location in the centre of the village means you’ll be in for some loud nights.
