Very clean place (cleaned at least 2 times a day). There is a lounge to watch DVDs (wide selection). Krabi isn't exactly a happening place in terms of partying, as most people use it as a pivot point for their next move, but they do try to get people to come together. Staff at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. I accidentally bumped into the maid and said sorry, and while I was showering I could hear them making fun of me and mimicking me saying "sorry" in a mocked American accent.
The only thing that lets this place down is one of the ladies at reception. She was absolutely useless and did not know anything. Room was clean, good size locker under the bed, plenty of clean showers. 2 good bars and a ok selection of movies. 1 min walk to the pier to catch the boat to Railay which is worth doing. Would stay again!
The only thing is that it is themed in a primary school. Aside from that, it is perfect, the environment is cool, there is a bar with music and games at night, really well located and the staff is really helpful. I found everything I needed there.
great atmosphere, great location in the centre of krabi, lots of backpackers, bar is awesome and the whole place is clean and attractive to chill out in. Would thoroughly recommend it, and it's cheap as well!
Very good hostel. More and cheaper accommodation facilities around - one of them just next doors. But if you want to party with other guys from the hostel. Go here... Staff not always quite friendly but OK.

The place to be in Krabi! big robust beds, "creative" atmosphere (for example names of the rooms are subjecrs from school (at least on one floor). two cool bars on the first floor roof top (had organized beer pong competitions every night :)), fun drawings on the walls. One of the best night markets i've seen in whole Asia around the corner (but only on weekends i think).
Amazing building, facilities, was like a 5 star hotel almost-really funky and boutique like! However staff were obnoxious and cold upon arrival and bad atmosphere as you walked in. No locker provided which I think was disgraceful.... If you wanted to lock the small draw each person is provided then you have to "buy" a padlock. My recommendation would be to provide everyone with thier own padlock for piece of mind and return it at end of stay to get deposit back. Shame. It has potential!

Reminded me of any big hostel in Europe. Really clean and great facilities. Would stay again for sure
Fantastic hostel! Great atmosphere with things always going on - two bars and massive tv lounge area. Staff were great, very helpful for organising trips. Honestly one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Rooms massive, clean and security is great for your stuff as your whole bag will fit under the bed in a lockable drawer - I'd be shocked if it doesn't.
The cleanest hostel I've ever seen. Bathroom are nice, and there is free shampoo, shower cream and conditioner! The beds are comfortable. The staff is amazing, very helpfull with any questions. Location is also good. close to the saturday walking street and not too far from the bus terminal

Loved our stay here! The rooms were super clean and had excellent storage for your bags. The beds were nice and sturdy too. Very central location and all around super clean. Would highly recommend it!
overall a superb hostel! however, on some nights there are some loud parties happening at the hostel and depending on where your room is located, it definitely could mess up your sleep. ear plugs!
Probably best hostel I stayed in during 3 month trip around SE Asis. Lovely clean hostel. Lovely dorm rooms and beds. Hot showers. Just a cool place! Stayed here on two separate occasions
I have stayed at many hostels all over the world. Pak Up is by far The best one!!
Best place I've stayed at in Asia so far, rooms are clean and well set out. Beds are big and have a huge pull out locker/draw that will fit a backpack/suitcase underneath. Showers are hot, there's free shampoo and body wash, and hairdryers! It even has laundry facilities and clothes lines! Staff are very helpful and most will go out of their way to help. The two bars at the hostel are also good. Location in Krabi town is also good - close to everything including night markets.
Lovely accommodation and friendly staff, the whole hostel feels renovated and modern. Would happily stay here again.
One of the best hostel I have ever been to! Amazing rooftop with live music and open mic! The staff doesn't look friendly but actually helps you to book the trips.
Excellent hostel. Only place to have a drink in krabi town!!
I absolutely loved this hostel. One o the nicest hostels I have stayed in so far! Big beds and fab storage under the beds. Hot showers and a ready light and power socket for each bed. Two bars are a great place to socialise, however it can be a bit noisey in the evenings if you aren't going out! The reception area is a nice place to chill out. A great location if you want to get the ferry or simply explore Krabi Town. Really close to the night market for excellent local food at a great price.
