Good backpacker hostel. Set out in the style of a school, it's interesting take on the hostel give it the edge and unsurprisingly had been voted as one of the best hostels in Asia. The hostel also helps with activities and sorts out transport for you too!

Great hostel. Friendly staff. Lovely comfy beds. Bar downstairs. Good wifi. Very clean hostel. Lockers provided under the bed. Good air con. This hostel is in Krabi town so it's not the party area. But its good access to the boat to railey beach. And it's a nice chilled out atmosphere. Overall I would stay here again.
I loved the hostel. The restaurant was excellent, tasty food and good value for money. It was great that they had a bar as Krabi itself was very quiet with not much else to do. It's a great place for a stop over and to climb the 1,260 steps to the top of the Tiger Temple. The hostel was new looking and the facilities were great.

I arrived here late which I understand. But upon pleading my case that I got left by a bus transfer in the middle of nowhere and hence wasn't able to email them notification of my late arrival, fell on deaf ears that just talked about "policy" and why they have it. Again I understand, but they didn't ever pick up their phone after I called repeatedly, so when I got internet access that's how it went. I told them I'd be staying multiple nights, took my business two doors down and was very pleased
There are much better places to stay in Krabi. The staff are completely rude and tried to charge me an extra night when my bus arrived several hours late. The rooms are okay and the wifi is terrible.
Nice dorms with AC, big drawer lockers that can fit all of your bags in. Big bathrooms with lots of showers/toilets so no waiting around. Lots of cheap places to eat close by. Very well-organised and efficient staff. Only criticisms would be that the staff could be a little more friendly and the wifi wasn't very reliable.
I really liked this hostel. It was super clean, had comfortable beds, and huge lockers underneath the bunk beds. They were very helpful with information and advice, and flexible in terms of check-in hours ( I arrived at 1am). The only thing I thought was missing was a cool hangout vibe, but being there for only one night, perhaps I didn't have enough time. The location is prime, and just a block away from the dock to get to the islands. I would definitely stay here again!
One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Definitely recommend it, the beds are amaaaazing and all the facilities work perfectly. The staff were really friendly and the location is awesome and right by everything. There's not a whole lot to do in krabi so the hostel has fun things to do every night so it's easy to meet people.
Lovely staff! Very clean. They do make an effort for people to socialise but I stayed here during low season. Comfiest pillows ever! Nice big bunk beds, lots of showers and toilets. Would definitely stay again. Can't fault it! Thank you Pak Up!
Amazing hostel. Great atmosphere fantastic bar, cheap drinks! Comfiest beds on the island! Not much around but tourist centre on reception can get you anywhere for cheap. 5*
This is a really lovely hostel, clean and tidy, good for a night out as they have their own bar but the location is pretty poor. Not much to do at all.
Great hostel for solo travelers. Has a bar and events every night to easily meet people. Facilities very clean. Huge locker under each bed. You can also book travel and rent a motorbike with them. Not much to do around the hostel. Wifi was spotty and they didn't have a working computer to use
Hostel is very modern, with a good bar where they try to foster a good atmosphere. Maybe it's the luck of the draw but it felt like they were trying too hard to create a fun environment rather than letting people get on with it. Also the wifi is very spotty... Other than that a good hostel
Overall was good, but I think the hostel need some improvement in lighting. When the night is too dark.
Nice and clean, comfortable bed, and great storage draws for your backpack , the staff were amazing. The curry in the hostel was amazing!!! Over all great hostel. But there's not really much to do in krabi town unless you do boat trips to places.
Comfy beds with lockers underneath, clean bathrooms, and social atmosphere. I like the designated drying section in the back of the hostel, means no dripping puddles in the dorm room! Also, right by the pier to go to Railey Beach, a must visit!
Love this hostel! Super comfy beds, awesome party atmosphere but still really quiet in the rooms. Good location right near the night market and 50baht bus to Ao Nang beach!
Can't recommend this hostel enough, only stayed for one night, staff were amazing, facilities are great. Social area/bar is great fun with different activities avert night, met loads of other solo travellers through a game of beer pong. Rooms are very modern with huge lockers and great air con. Food in restaurant is delish and very affordable!
