Great hostel, fun games in the evening (I won a t-shirt playing flip cup!) and a overall fun atmosphere. Very clean and big lockers and the staff were always friendly and helpful. Also easy to find right by the pier in Krabi.
Extremely helpful staff, super comfy and clean. Showers are great! Good atmosphere. Everything you want in a hostel :) !
One of the nicest hostels ive stayed at in Thailand. Krabi Town is a pretty sleepy place but this place is great for meeting people with a decent roof top bar, a big bar area at the rear of the hostel and plenty of seating in the reception area. Rooms are really smart and the air con was great
I was blown away by the edgy hipness of this hostel. Must have been designed by an artist. It was nicer than most hotels I've stayed in traveling S.E.Asia. I'm a 65 year old American woman travelling alone. I had never stayed in a dorm hostel. People staying and working at Pak Up were all so friendly. Everyone who wanted to be included in any social activity or trip, was invited. Yet, once in the dorm, everyone was respectfully quiet. Showers, self serve laundry, bedding was spotlessly clean.

Great Hostel. Had 2 bars - 1 would have been enough. But the staff was always busy and it was not easy to get information about the area around. There were a lot of young people in the hostel.
The hostel is really lovely. Super clean and comfy beds in a decent location and the people are quite friendly. They have a couple of bars which are good but wasn't much atmosphere when we were there but that didn't really matter. The only thing I would say is there isn't much actually in Krabi unless you have the budget for loads of tours however the walking street market on the weekend was amazing. Street food - so yum and cheap!
This hostel is one of the nicest I have stayed at. The facilities are lovely and it is so clean. The staff are really helpful and the social area is great; there are 2 bars in the hostel with different stuff going on every night. It's really easy to meet people and it is close to most things in krabbie. All in all, a great, thought out hostel, and probably the best in krabbie. Book early though, this place fills up quick!
Really good infrastructure, good location in Krabi town.
Of my whole 3 month trip through Asia, this was the best hostel I've stayed. It was recommended to me by a friend and I was not disappointed. It's situated in an old school building which gives it a really cool, somewhat industrial feel. There are two bars and activities are organized every night, which makes it really easy to meet other people. The beds are huge, super comfortable and very clean! They even have (hot) rain showers, which was really nice after showering on a toilet for so long
Pak-up is a great social place with two bars. It's super easy to make new friends there. There's a drinking game each night. The drinks are a little expensive (happy hour big beer 90 baht). The room concept is pretty cool. The rooms are named after school subjects and the beds and lockers are named after certain terms of the subjects. I stayed in Lab room and the beds were called Hydrogene, Chromium etc. The beds were cosy with thick blankets for the aircon (little too cool but ok).
Krabi Town is not really exciting but the hostel in relly nice. Great beds en good atmosphere.
One of the nicest hostels I stayed. Very clean, a lot of showers (including shamoo), toilets, laundry etc. The doorms are clean and the beds very confortable and they have huge lockers for everybody! And not to forget, a chilly roof top bar!
Clean, spacious, great locker space. Bathrooms were compact and hot water was hit and miss based on water pressure (i.e.. how many other people were showering or flushing toilets). But rooms were nice, beds very clean, fan and A/C, and fairly quiet at night. Would definitely come back here.
Staffs are a lil off but that's alright, cause the hostel is beyond amazing!
We only stayed in this hostel for one night after being recommended it. It was perfect so modern beds were very comfy, toilets were clean and there is a chill out area downstairs aswell as bar out back which plays music and games. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would loved to have stayed here longer if I had time!
No doubt the best hostel we have and will ever stay in! Socially it was the best it was very clean and the beds were so comfortable! Showers, toilets and the two bars within the hostel were very good!
Jus a great hostel. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, really easy to meet other people. I had a great time here.
Amazing place, great ambience. Very clean and throughout the day you can see the staff cleaning and making sure everything is in place. Definitely will go back if I'm going back to krabi.
