Brilliant place to stay when in Krabi! The lady and the man at reception could not do enough for you, whether it be directions, using his phone or even giving a little discount off some of the trips! He even sorted us out a taxi to the pier. The hotel itself has very spacious rooms and a lovely chilled bar at the bottom. Wifi also works great, I would come back to JP Mansion if we ever pass through Krabi Town again!

Charming and a bit bohemian place. Nice hall and staff.
We really loved our stay at JP Mansion! Staff was really kind and helpful with any questions we had and always in a great mood. We didn't have internet in our room, but the lounge was great to relax in so we didn't mind spending time there. Its just a short walk from central Krabi so the location couldn't be better. Also we didn't pay anything compared to the service and facilities that we got. Would absolutely recommend this charming hostel.

Nice clean hostel. There is not so much to do in Krabi, but it is a good hostel to stay for a night before going island hopping. Owner is a cool and friendly guy (old hippie) that helped us get tickets for the ferry to Phi Phi. Recomended if you stay in Krabi!
Nice place to stay, the room was clean and big, the hostel has a good location - just a few minutes walk from the Maharaj road, where the food and fun is located. And for some reason we paid less than was announces at the website.
Staff is very helpful with planning things and cares about what you're doing each day.
it was awesome to stay there, the owner was a such nice people and i like them very much, all the facilities are in a good shape and very clean, so calm and nice environment

Very basic facilities at least in the basic room, good value for money though.
Good hostel for travellers. The people who work there are great and sorted us out with day trips and transfers and our next accommodation with discounts etc, so helpful! Bit of a weird location, have to walk 5 mins to see any other tourists. Good wifi, laundry service, clean rooms etc!
Very friendly staff who explained everything we asked. Good location nereby nightmarket and city center.
Ideal if you want to save yourself some money in Krabi when you’re just staying just a night or 2. Room is clean, but there is nothing more than a bed and a chair in it. The owner arranged a taxi for us to go to the airport for a fair price (300 bath at 6.30 in the morning and it was actually 5 minutes too early. This was really nice and saved us a lot of stress.
Lovely place. Our room was clean and air-con was working perfectly. The bar at the ground floor is great, with cheap beer and good music and the people who run it are very nice and speak a good english. No internet in the rooms, though. I would definitely recommend it as it's cheap and good
Everything was fine, apart from internet not working in the room. Beds were quite hard, but could be worse. Close to where buses to the beach stop.
Great hostel & so cheap for what you get. Staff are really helpful, location is perfect would definitely stay again.
The mansion staff (we think a wife and husband) were phenomenal, so sweet and cared for all of our needs. Only downfall was the bed was hard but honestly for $4 a night who cares.
Perfect for a short stay. The owners are lovely and welcoming and very helpful should you need anything from taxis to ferris tickets. It's a quick 2/3minute walk from the main road of Krabi where all the action is. It's in a quiet location and is a quiet place. Internet only worked in the main social area which was a bit of a downer but other than that it was a great budget place to stay.
Owner is helpful and friendly but while he is out the staff on spot is pretty usless (hardly anyything can be arranged, english very poor). If looking for a cheap stay there are better places (though not much). And don't take "7 Island trip" from there - company (name starting on letter "P") orginising this trip is worse than bad. Instead of 7 islands we swam on 1, saw maybe 4 from boat, there were no cave and bats in spite of what leaflet shows, also bio-luminesccent night snorkel was a mistake
The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was a good size and the wifi didn't reach our room. The air con didn't work in the room which was a shame as we had paid more for an air con room, we were boiling. Spent most of our time in the downstairs bar because the wifi worked there and it had fans. The laundry was done the same day.
Very good place, incredible low price with an average quality. This is one of the best choices for people traveling con a budget.
There was no wifi in the rooms and at night, even in the common room, it was incredibly spotty. The bed were a little too hard for me. Even though hostel is a bit off the main part of Krabi Town, it is located next to a morning market and an evening market, lowering food costs substantially by avoiding restaurant prices. Ferries were booked through the staff, who were all very friendly.
