Decent hostel - really clean with great facilities and super comfy beds. Not a brilliant atmosphere - no real character


Good social hostel. Good location and clean rooms. Only stayed one night due to it being booked up. Close to other good bars and restaurants. Great for groups or solo travellers as there is a bar and common area with daily organised events.


The hostel was very clean and had cool room names. It's connected to a bar and restaurant which is very handy. I really liked this place and it had a really good vibe.


Haven't a bad word to say about this place. Fantastic staff especially the late night staff. A friend got to drunk and a person in the bar complained but they backed us up because we stayed there. Great games and the tiger temple challenge is very tough but a great experience. Wouldn't recommend to fanies but as a back packer in a group or alone it's a great place to make friends in a comfortable environment.


Really good hostel! Definitely one of the best I have ever stayed at!


All I needed to do was crash for the night before catching a flight out of Krabi, and this place was perfect for that. Options around the hostel for eating are overpriced but you can't have everything. It was very clean, well-run, and convenient. My one complaint is that there seemed to be other people who needed an early-morning taxi to the airport, and it would have been nice of them to offer to try to group people together (I was traveling solo).


Lovely hostel! The evening activities were really good and very sociable! Nice to actually have a proper bed pillow and duvet! Showers were a bit temperamental but atleast they were actually warm. Good storage under the bed!


Great place to stay! Awesome place to party.


Great hostel and extended my stay for another night. Really helpful with arranging transport and what to do in the day. I didn't want to party but found the reception area quiet in the evenings and still a nice place to chill and meet people.


Good location, good social area, rooms are nice, staff are nice. All good!


Very nice location, hostel & value for money.


Overall. Not that great of a stay. That's not to say that the place was bad or anything, but my poor experience stems from the other guests. Other backpackers were incredibly rude, dirty, and very inconsiderate of others in the hostel. There are a few things the hostel could improve upon, however. For one, the rooms closest to the lounge stairs are absolutely AWFUL when it comes to sound. I don't know who decided to put glass doors as they did not help with outside traffic or guest noise.


I can see why this is a featured hostel on this website. It's got a hip aesthetic with new and well maintained facilities. While I didn't think the town of Krabi deserved much time when other beach / island destinations are nearby, this hostel was absolutely amazing.


Fantastic Staff! I did the Friday hike to Tiger Temple with a bunch of people and that was fantastic as it got you to know LOADS of people! Only 100 Baht so a bargain. Location is great, buses & boats are opposite the hostel to take you everywhere. Beds are comfy, rooms have air con and the playground bar offers very cheap & tasty food until 2am! Drinks are WAY cheaper by reception and most people bought their drinks there. Would stay here again!


Very cool place, great social areas to meet people. Room was clean and comfortable and bathrooms were fine. Did feel a little bit money-making though, there were a few extra costs I did not experience elsewhere.


Great hostel overall. Comfy beds and huge lockers. Awesome patio bar with nightly events. Only feedback was pricing for tours/transportation could be more competitive with other agencies nearby offering the same tickets.


Don't recommend


This is actually the nicest hostel I've ever been in. Just stay here you won't regret it!


Great hostel, with one of the busiest bars in Krabi. highly recommended
