I know Ko Phi Phi is probably the most expensive island in Thailand but despite the crowds it is still a beauty and worth visiting in my opinion.

Last time I've been to Phi Phi I didn't plan anything and ended up paying a walk-in rate of 900 Baht for room I didn't like so much.

My question is, can one still find a room/beach hut for less than 600 Baht? preferable cheaper. Of course we are talking about a fanned room.

On the low season no problem at all. Last May I heard several people mentioning the region of 200-300 baht per night for the best superior rooms. How to go about getting those special deals are a bit more hit and miss. I've heard that it might work to call to any hostel or guesthouse found online and negotiating a price, they might be willing to slice the web-price because it is the low season.

In low seasons you can also play them against each other and possibly carve a little bit off the price too.

In the high season (December-March) you can still find accommodation in dorms easy for 300 baht. As of writing this message I see there is a place called "Phutawan Bamboo Resort" that has double bed rooms for 250 baht even in december.

So I would say yes, there are still deals to be made. And of course you get what you pay for in many cases, and on Phi Phi I would try and find pictures of the place, or if I'm there I would ask to see the room first.
