Phi Phi Island Accommodation | Hostel on Phi Phi Thailand
If you need a Phi Phi hostel this might be the article for you. There are many Phi Phi Hostels in Phi Phi Don Village aimed at those who want to spend time on the beach doing things, hanging out with friends and not just whiling away time in their rooms. Phi Phi island is a place to explore. It's bays, beaches, diving and nightlife making it a 'must do' type of place.
Phi Phi Island has very mixed accommodation from luxury to hostel rooms suited for travellers and backpackers and makes you feel at home whether you are a high roller or on a budget.
The secret to this feeling at home is the island's format. Whether you are walking out of a Phi Phi hostel or a 5 star luxury resort, the predominant dress is shorts, t shirt and beach shoes. This means everyone looks the same in the day and pretty much, the same at night. Whether you are coming out of the luxury Phi Phi Island Cabana Hotel or a neat Phi Phi hostel like Phi Phi Beach Front Resort you will be unable to distinguish people by dress.
This very 'easy, easy' style works with the southern Thai notion of 'Sabai Sabai', a Thai version of the Spanish 'Manana'. On Koh Phi Phi you are invited to live in the moment. Phi Phi is the final destination, you are not going anywhere else, so relax, you've made it.
