Great hostel & so cheap for what you get. Staff are really helpful, location is perfect would definitely stay again.


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.


Good cheap place for a quick overnight stay and they arranged our ferry to Koh lanta. All good


really nice hostel staff, room without aircon is quite hot


Lovely staff, missing them!


Staff were very helpful. Bed was hard but room was cheap so can't complain!


I came in low season, so it was quiet, but they had a nice common room. I stayed in a private aircon room, very clean and comfortable. They have laundry service but not dryers so you have to wait all day for clothes to dry on the line. All in all its a fine guesthouse, good facilities, but a bit boring when i went.


The common area is great, and has the best wifi signal, rooms are clean, staff is friendly but only a couple speak good English. Had terrible ants in my room and was immediately changed to another, no hassle. Not a big deal, really. Would definitely stay again. Close to night market.


Owner is really helpful but does it only for provision. Don't get the fan room, its really hot and humid in there. Clean rooms


staff were very helpful, friendly locals, great locations in the centre of town.


Simple and cheap place to stay. A negative point is that the staff speaks poor english or no english at all. When booking tickets at the hostel, don't do it on the telephone. We should get our tickets for the ferry the next morning, but they forgot about the booking. Good Wifi in the sitting area.


Reception area downstairs is great - bar, tour area, cool seating area. Room wasn't great. The only ‘window‘ was into the hall and it was made of 7 or 8 glass panels that opened like a blind so it didn't keep any noise in or out. Also apparently hot showers aren't included with every room. We had a 2 bedroom private but were told we had to have cold ones even though the place was practically empty.. Staff were helpful with booking tickets.


The hostel is situated at the slightly quieter end, which is great as it's within walking distance of all the action but is nice and chilled to return to. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The room was brilliant, really spacious and very clean. Definitely recommend a stay here!


Perfect for a stop over from the airport, thats about it. It's clean, has basic facillities and a nice bar downstairs with a chill out lounge. Bring your own towel!


The staff was amazing and very patient with our attempts to learn thai. Also very helpful with activity planning, the owner even drove us to the ferry station for free because the bus was full. Very good place to spend a few chilled out days before mastering the islands.


Adequate accommodation within walking distance of the main streets and markets.


This is an ideal location for if you are in search for a basic, clean and cheap hostel. Great price/quality ratio.
