Really likes this hostel. It is cheap, clean and has a cool lounge area for all guests to hang out together and watch TV. Also an outdoor bar/food area with pool was fun. Lockers were secure and bathrooms were clean. Not too far from the beach, about 15 mins walk. I would definitely recommend


The hostel is lovely!!!! And has the biggest bathroom ever, seriously it is huge! Awesome common area, clean, ok location, walk to beach 10-15mins but downhill and 7-11 is close so nothing to complain!!!!!!


A bit basic and a long walk from the beach and nightlife but good fun and a good cheap cafe on sight. Booked for 2 days and stayed for 4


Not the greatest hostel, with horrible bathroom n shower with no pressure, clean beds and security lockers in the dorm. Far from the beach or bars, no atmosphere.


Very clean bathroom, very comfortable beds, nice common areas. Met great people there, many solo travellers. Little far from the beach but walkable distance. Cheap water and drinks. Don't book trips with them, they sold me a very bad trip to phuket.


For those who have a functional pair of legs, Ao Nang Backpacker's Hostel is an excellent place. The lounge on the deck is great for meeting travelers, and the TV facilities inside comes with cable and movies, alos well-loved by travelers looking to chill. A little overcrowded for the size of the building, which takes its toll on overall cleanliness and the wi-fi signal in the evening (which is unusable at times). All in all though, a good choice for budget travelers looking to enjoy Railay!


Ao Nang Backpacker is a great hostel! The staff are lovely and helpful, the food is great (and cheap), the rooms are clean and the place has a fun atmosphere. I'll definitely stay there again :)


This was the first hostel we stayed in, we where In the female dorm, which was clean and has a en suit. although area was very small to keep backpacks in. Don't be fooled by reviews saying it's a 10 minute walk to the beach, it took atleast 25 minutes! Don't recommend staying in krabi for long, it was VERY BORING! But this hostel is a good stop off place.

Super clean, hot showers and really friendly helpful staff


Great place to spend a night or two. Aonang is very touristy and you can't feel a local culture, but it's a great jump off point for the islands and Railay/Tonsai beach. Accomodations are roomy and clean, had a young backpacker vibe. Very helpful staff.
