Awesome value for the money. Best price in Aonang for a hostel with lockers and a communal fridge. I went during low season, so the kitchen and bar weren't open, but it didnt matter as there were plenty of places close by. The manager even gave me a discount when I extended my stay. I chose this place because it was only a 15 minute walk to Emerald Muay Thai gym. So if you are looking to do Muay Thai in Aonang, this is a great cheap place to do it.
Havet House was extremely unpleasant place for staying because of two main reasons. Firstly, the receptionist, and the only representative of a staff in the hostel, was very impolite, he doesn't speak English at all, not helpful and friendly at all. I can compare his behavior like a prehistoric man, with screaming and mimics. Second, the hostel is very dirty, especially the toilets which have ants all around the things lest there unclean for days, weeks or maybe months.
Owner was very friendly and super helpful

I had booked a reservation and was told there was no beds available when I tried to check in. They weren't very helpful to me and I was stranded for a few hours until I found a place to stay. I had then booked one night somewhere else, and then booked another two nights back at Havet House through Hostelworld. But after my treatment and non helpfulness to find another place to stay, I felt unwelcomed and didn't go back to stay there and lost my deposits again.

Internet was slow, the staff did not speak good English, and it's about a 30 minute walk from the beach. But it's quiet and clean and close to most things you'll need. Oh, and the blankets only cover about 2/3 of your body--super small.
Except the location which can be rated as average, the rest was just below of any expectations. First, the bed sheets, duvet and pillow cover were not change and with dirty spots on. The TV was not working and despite our efforts to sort this, we were left for 5 days with promises only. In all this tine we stayed there, the room was not cleaned at all. To mention, we had a double private room. The rubbish was everywhere in the building. The only staff there offers just his smile. Bad experience
A pleasant stay. The location is ok. 20 minutes walk to beach. Everything is good. My only complaint is the bed is quite hard.
The staff can't speak English. It's not a safe place cause someone stole me a pair of shoes. Only one good point: Internet is fast.
It is a very fun Hostel, great to meet people! But not so safe and not so clean. It is party hostel, so you're not gonna sleep untill 3h, but the party is amazing!!! Join them! Lol
The person at the front desk (Wren) was rude and his attitude was always changing. Sometimes he would be kind but at other times would treat guests terribly. You are required to remove shoes, but the hostel was not nicely maintained to walk barefoot. We had to insist that the bathrooms needed cleaning. I do not recommend this place. The wifi didn't work well in the rooms. He spoke impolitely to the guests. He also entered our all female dormitory without knocking when one of us was not dressed!!
Super clean hostel with cheap dorms. I stayed one night in an AC dorm and one in a fan dorm, both just fine. The staff is friendly and tries to help, I got a ride when I was really sick and needed to go see a doctor. It is a bit off from the beach, but it's walk-able or you can take a tuk-tuk for a decent price. Otherwise it's all great. A nice place to stay at. I do recommend it.
Hostel was well priced and had everything I needed. Note there is back door entrance you need to use after a certain hour which wasn't explained at check-in. Lockers are available but only for small items. The whole place has only two bathrooms with shower - could result in long lines but no problems when I was there. 30 minute walk to beach which doesn't matter if you book day tours (they include hotel pick up). I didn't price taxi fare.
Hostel was clean and location was fine for me a good 20-25 min walk to the beach. One member of staff was very helpful and spoke excellent English, but another spoke very limited English. Restaurant never seemed to do food which was strange but there was good food nearby. Excellent WiFi.

Clean rooms, nice bathroom. very good for the price. Close to good restaurants and walking distance to the pub street and night market. hired the tuk tuk driver to take us to Angkor Wat and he was awesome!
Great hostel, just a 5 minute ride to centre point where the bars are. A few good places to eat, really chilled out place. The 2 men that work there are friendly and helpful, they can sort your travel out no problem and have found them fairly cheap. Everyone gets their own locker with a blanket and towel, beds are comfy and rooms are clean. There is a kitchen facility with cutlery/plates/cups etc and also a blender! I'd recommend staying as the price is also always good for what you get.
We really enjoyed our stay at Havet House. We extended our stay with no hassle, the guy is very nice and very accommodating as well as helpful with any questions you have or things you want to see. It is a little walk from the main area but it means it's away from all the loud music so you can sleep at night very well. The rooms are very clean, the beds are good. All round a good stay.
In this hostel you get value for your money. Its a cheap and quite hostel but has everything you need on 100 mtr. Party at Slumbers, the best restairant on tripadvisor and the familymarkt or 7/11. The beach is a 20 min walk but easy walk or just grap an tuktuk or motorcycle. Full review you can check here: http://gobackpackgo.com/havet-house-hostel-krabi-ao-nang/
Although the guy at the desk couldn't speak very good english, but then my Thai isn't any better- he really helped me out. He called his manager for me who explained how I could get to another part of Krabi for my visa. He also helped me out with a cheaper way to get to Phi Phi, rather then the tourist places near the beach. The place wasn't that clean
Quiet place. 20 mins walk to the beach. Lots of cheap restaurants abd street food near by.
Nice hostel but not very busy and a bit far from the centre. Wi-fi was a bit weak in the female dorm. Staff is nice and facilities are good.
