The sheets were greasy and room was very hot ( fan room ) location was ok but not much to do there tbh


V unhappy with my stay. The owners are friendly enough but were totally unwilling to abide by their 1 day cancellation policy even when given sufficient notice. The room itself was "private" twin so i was expecting better than a dorm, considering the price was around 225baht per night. The room was squalid, reeking of damp with signs of mould and decay on the walls. There was no a.c in the room, no wifi and no lamp, the bed felt greasy. Stay elsewhere in krabi town with better value for money


Me and my friends stayed there for one night and that was enough. The common area was nice but the rooms were totally wet (matress, bed sheet, blanket) as there were no windows and both rooms.. that was quite disgusting. The stuff was ok.. the receptionist wanted to book a bus for us.. when we told him we already booked a flight he was rude and somehow grumpy.


very empty and quiet when I went and very difficult to socialize with other guests. may have been because of the low season but as a solo traveller, I quickly got out of there


At its knockdown price and location, it is good value.


Nice hostel very helpful staff and very clean. Close to shopping and markets


Basic room and facilities but get what you pay for! The room was clean and the owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Helped book trips at short notice and arrange whatever we needed. Hostel in a great location, only a 5 minute walk from the Main Street night markets in krabi where there is excellent street food and entertainment! Highly recommend for those requiring a basic place to stay in the middle of town close to the food markets.

just what we wanted and you cant beat the price. Stayed one night then came back for another before flying out.


Our room was so damp it left our clothes and bags damp too. It was horrible sleeping on a damp bed! Staff weren't particularly friendly, no atmosphere


We had a nice stay here, simple accomodation, you get what you pay for. We had a large spacious room but found it to be very damp. On checkout, we were double checking to make sure our taxi was booked. Unfortunately due to a language barrier we were misunderstood by the reception lady who rang the owner. He then spoke to me in an extremely rude manner and gave out to me for double checking. Found the owner to be friendly up until this point so we left this accomodation extremely disappointed.

Can't really pick a fault, rooms were okay, bathrooms what you'd expect. Really helpful staff, very central, easy to get a boat or bus to the beaches or railay. Organised a 4 islands tour through the hostel which I would highly recommend it was really good fun! Stayed in a fan room (even though we thought we had air on) so was a little stuffy!


Very nice staff and so helpful. If you are looking for a taxi, boat or bus to somewhere, ask them, they know the prices and you will get good prices.
