If you're staying in Krabi, this is the place to sleep. The hostel is themed like a school which is done great. It also features a nice rooftop and backyard bar. Staff is friendly and facility's are good and clean


AWESOME HOSTEL !!! THE BEST IN SOUTH EAST ASIA ! Two bars ! super cheap laundry facilities ! Air con ! Staff is ok... Super cheap scooter rental ! When you go to Krabi visit the Tiger Cave Temple and Railay Beach (don´t go to the regular beach but climb up into the lagoon - the track is just off the main walkway. A bit challenging but worth every drop of sweat ;) )


Staff were very helpfull with booking trips and transfers. Great location not far from town and boats. 2 very nice bars and rooms are clean and comfy. Nice to chill out in after a crazy few days travelong


Staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to help you! One of the best hostels stayed in while in Thailand! Would highly recommend!


Such a great hostel! Rooms are clean and have great sercurity with every person having there own lockable draw. Showers and toilets were always clean and staff friendly and helpful! Added bonus of having playground bar downstairs as well! Would definately recommend if spending time in Krabi or even just using Pak Up as sleep courters at night while you do day trips to the islands etc :)


Clean, good atmosphere, great bar on roof. Overall no complaints and really good for the money


This hotel is very nice, staff helpful but not super friendly. The biggest problem is to sleep : party on the roof top til 1am people entering dormitory all night without any discretion. If you want a place to rest it is not there ! Good for young people full of energy !


Good cheap hostel, tours are a bit pricey so check other tour agents before u book at the hostel. Staff are thai but speak english. Ive been in ao many hostels and i have to say this was by the THE CLEANEST one ever. And nice and cheap.


A must stay when you're in krabi! The hostel is a great place to stay especially if you're in college. The staff are great as well but there were some staff that seems to be distant when asking questions. The location is great as well, near pretty good restaurants. They also give pretty good discounts on tours. Again, encouraging y'all to stay here!


Well located, clean and fun hostel.


Great hostel overall, only problem was it was far from the beach! But well worth the money for how clean and safe it was.


I love to stay here.Its cheap and clean! But , the guy staff that little bit chubby should improve his service.He was so arrogant too.However , i love this hostel much :)

Very clean and super comfy bed! Best hostel I've stayed in while visiting Thailand.


Stayed for 2 separate 2 night stays, Beds are nice and sturdy and have great secure storage for big bags underneath. Hostel has good bathrooms on every floor and wash areas. Is quite a quiet place so wouldn't spend too long there but the hostel is at the heart of town and tries to keep lively with two bars and events on. Good for chatting to other travelers and getting recommendations from people.Good night market nearby for food and near pier to railay.


Lovely looking hostel - very clean, modern, and cool. The rain showers are amazing. However, the service by the staff could improve. They didn't bother to show me my room or where anything is after I checked in. They will help you book stuff but the travel agency across the street is most likely cheaper. Also, the social environment is there but could do with better execution from staff. The open mic started over an hour late and they never even ran the twister tournament on Monday.


Lovely hostel only stayed for one night so didn't really get the chance to experience it fully


Nothing to add to most of the positive reviews - if you wanna stay in a dorm/budget accommodation in Krabi (220 baht per bed), you must come here! The only downside really is the terribly disinterested and plainly customer-unfriendly performance of the staff. A friend of mine had an issue with a rented scooter of Pak Up, and suffice to say, the staff's attitude is mirrored in the hostel manager, as well. So don't even think of arguing with any of them - either you take it or leave.


The hostel itself is very nice. Clean, secure and easy to get to. However, the reception staff is downright rude and won't do much for the guests. Their booking service is overcharged (booked a day excursion for 500tbh more than other people doing it with me). Great place to stay, but stay away from the staff!


Very good hostel. Close to a night fiod market and to a lot of resraurants shops and travel agencies. Its very clean and the servicr is really good! Bis lockers for do all the stuff insite. Very comfortable beds!


The bar out back was the best part. Other than booked tours i found krabi town to be rather boring
