Great location and very friendly staff!


Pretty much a perfect hostel. Very busy and with good reason.


Staff were great except some had difficulty with English. Best hostel experience in Thailand so far. Very social, but it's easy to get away if you need to. Great WiFi. Easy to rent a motor bike and go wherever. No beach nearby but easy motor bike access. Very clean and homely.


Great stay, very clean bathrooms/dorms and attentive staff, good vibe in the bar at the back & would stay again


The only reason why I'm giving this a bad rating is bc of the guy working over night. When I was asking for help, he was completely useless. He looks at me and tells me there's nothing he can do. Granted that it was an extreme request, he made no effort to help. Everything else about this hostel was amazing! There's a bar with crazy music in the back. The other travelers are super sweet! And they were the ones that actually helped me. Rooms are big! I would recommend this place!


nice big dorms with big private lockers beneath the beds where bagpacks fit in, aircon. nice and helpful staff. bar and restaurant in the back. easy to rent scooters with them, helpful with booking transport. wifi everywhere. clean bathrooms - seperate shower and toilets.


This hostel is great for teenage brits looking to chunder or get smashed and pull ladies. Kinda trashy atmosphere. Cant complain given the nature of the hostel and it was very clean BUT it sucks that guests who pay more to have a four bed dorm are place way in the back right next to the club where theyll hear incessant bass and screaming at full volume until 4 AM. Party hostel or not people need to sleep!


Pak Up was probably the best hostel I stayed in throughout my whole 7 weeks in Thailand. I stayed here for 3 nights and although I found that there wasn't much to do in Krabi, the staff were a great help in booking and recommending trips, cooking classes etc. I found the hostel immaculate and with the bar downstairs it was very easy for me to meet people which as a solo traveller was also a big plus. They really had everything you needed in the hostel and each room/best. 5 stars!


Wouldn't come back to Krabi for any other reason than this hostel! Met some amazing people and had an amazing stay ! 100% go to Pak Up you won't regret it !!!


A perfect hostel! This hostel is perfect for 18 to late 20's! The atmosphere is amazing here. Such good energy. It was built and designed so well. The cleanest and best hostel you will ever stay at! There isn't much to do around the hostel but you could hangout here all day and have fun. Every night at the restaurant/ bar they have different things like beer pong Olympics, twister, Etc. Everybody goes here at night and it's usually packed! Stayed here 2 nights and didn't want to "pak up"!!!!


The hostel is really nice except the bathrooms could probably be cleaned more often. Great beds and hue storage facilities. Definitely a place to go to party and socialize as the hostel as a bar attached to it. Really close to the boats leaving for Railey although in Krabi in general there's not a whole lot to do.


This hostel is alright, the location isn't necessarily the best location because it is in a relatively quieter area of Krabi. It's still a nice hostel in terms of how modern it is. The bathrooms on the third floor were not very clean. There was a lot of mold in the shower stalls. The staff is very short when you ask for help. It seems like they have other things on their agenda besides the guests. I didn't get a genuine vibe from them. still, it was a place to stay. AC works well.


Great social atmosphere and location. New looking building, nice large bathrooms, fantastic bar and helpful staff. My one complaint was that we had a room in the back and it was quite loud at night from the bar.


It is great !!

Excellent and comfy hostel. Would totally come back. No regrets.


This is hostel is a nice big hostel with really nice rooms beds and showers. It's also got a really good bar Shane is krabi is a bit of a boring town with not a hell of a lot going on..


Very clean hostel with massive lockers under bed and individual light and sockets for each bed. Nice common area with bar attached to hostel. Also close to night market.


Loved this hostel. Clean, good atmosphere, great location and friendly staff.
