Nice, clean and sadre place to stay in Krabi. They offer you many services, although you can find them cheaper around....


The hostel is situated in a perfect area in Krabi town, just a walk down the street from the pier where you can take a boat to Ko phi phi, Railey or Aon nang. Also close to a money exchange office, post office, restaurant and night market. They rent scooters. Staff was not the most helpful but they weren't bad neither, just average. Seem like everyone staying here is young and partying so expect a bit of noise and slamming of door in dorms. Overall I like the place and would commend it


Probably my favorite hostel I have stayed in thailand so far. The facilities are awesome and atmosphere is great the two bars at the hostel are a good place to meet people and even Santa showed up on Christmas to give gifts to all the good boys and girls.


Super clean, tons of toilets and showers, nice big under-bed lockers, helpful staff, laundry facilities, lots of restaurants and shops near by, and one of the comfiest hostel beds i've slept in during the last 4 months of traveling. It's worth noting though that there are two bars at this hostel, which wasn't clear to me before arriving. It's not a "party hostel" but you may hear some music from your room and you could have roommates coming in drunk late at night. Overall really great hostel!!


This is a big hostel. It is run very well by the staff and has all the facilites, tours etc. I only stayed one night, but I felt that because it is so big it kind of loses that sense of homeliness and cosyness. It is a very functional and cheap hostel. I would stay here again.


Awesome staff, clean rooms, comfy beds, hot showers and good vibes! Would def stay here again.

Definitely the place to stay if you are looking for a party and people to meet. Can get a little too loud at night because of the rooftop bar. Not too bad though. Id recommend


Great hostel for meeting people. There are activities every night and always lots of people in the common area. Very clean hostel, nice big lockers under the bed, comfy beds. Having a late shower, using a locker after checkout, using the computer and even printing a piece of paper. With that said still a great hostel and would stay again.


Best hostel I've been in. Really comfy and big beds! They do have rain showers. Love the two bars, really nice place to meet people. Close to the eveningmarket. Only the drinks in the bars (especially the rooftop) are way too expensive in my opinion.


Great place to stay social wifi location etc etc


One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Very comfy beds with huge lockers underneath to fit even the biggest bags. The bar at the back of the hostel is a great way to meet people and get a drink, but far enough from the rooms that you won't be disturbed during the night. Really clean with good bathroom facilities and right in the centre of Krabi.


Good hostel but I am not satisfied with the transport to Surat Tani that I bouht through them. They said it would be a big bus with AC but they but me in a small bus and drowe around the city for an hour (to pick up others and do random stuff) before we changed to another small bus that was crowded and the trip was not comfortable at tall.

Arrived late but check in was smooth and quick, although they did not understand we wanted to pay the key deposit in cash and the actual payment on card, she just took one of our money (a big note) and used that to pay for both of us, which left us confused about how much I then owed her! Hostel rooms were quite small, but large lockers under the bed to fit your backpack and more in, and big beds with your own light and plug socket with a shelf too which is good. Roof top bar had a good vibe!


All tourist agencies seem to have linked up with the hostel. I wanted to go rock climbing and asked for prices at the hostel, it was 900 THB pick and transfer from Hotel included. Decided to do it myself and when to Krabi to King Climbers office and checked the prices. It was 1000 THB no transfers included. I did not like the inside rig on this and felt ripped of.


Great facilities and great atmostphere. Every night they have a big party at the bar/club behind the hostel that is well attended. Rooms are large and clean.


low bathroom per individual but staff was very helpful in helping booking tours, etc.


This hostel is nice and clean and has good beds with a locker underneath to fit your backpack in so it keeps the room tidy too! The shower areas were good and included shower gel & shampoo There is a security gate at the end of the corridor and the room doors lock also We didn't see a lot of nightlife around but there is a bar in the hostel which is good


The rooms are comfortable, air conditioned and secure, including lockers that will take even the largest backpacks. The bathrooms are fantastic, clean, with hot water. The hostel is a little impersonal and corporate, charging for many things like luggage storage and post-checkout showers. The staff sell tours, but remember to haggle them down on price.


We stayed in a 10 bed mixed dorm and it was great! Very clean and the beds are super comfortable, you also have a big locker provided under your bed. It was busy when we stayed and the atmosphere was really fun in the rooftop bar.


A really great hostel - great vibe and common area, and clean rooms. Staff are great, very helpful for sorting travel. Take there recommendation on the massage place, which was great. Generally there's nothing to do in Krabi save the Tiger Temple (amazing, get there at sunrise before its hot/busy), but its a good base to travel through to Ao Nang, Railey, Koh Phi Phi, etc. Would love to see such a great hostel as this in other locations .
