Pretty standard backpacker hostel. Beds aren't too bad, the showers are cold, etc. But met good people and Jik, the lady who owns it is lovely and helpful. Would recommend.


The place itself was very dark, warm and humid, but you can't expect too much for its price range. There was no a/c, which was fine, but the ventilation of the rooms weren't too great. The placement of sockets were terrible, so fans couldn't reach us. However, our room had the strongest stench of sewage. We had no idea how to help it. Apparently, you just shut the bathroom drain hole and you're good. We choked on toxic air and woke up sick the next day. No apologies were made for it.


The most helpful and kind staff we've met in Thailand! Great and very clean accomodation for excellent price.


We were looking for a cheap accomodation so we've chosen the 8-bed Form which consisted oft 8 matresses laying in the ground. It was ok and we met nice people. The staff is friendly and helped us with traveling further. All in all for a short stay and for that money ok, just don't expect too much.


All good. If you just plan to stay a night over in Krabi before going somewhere else, this is perfect. The host is really nice and it's clean. lockers are in room. It's not directly in the centre so the location is not super good.


We enjoyed Krabi town. We were there 3 nights, room was nice and cheap and the owner was really nice and helpful. Hostel was little bit away from the centrum, but still on walking distance.

It's a nice hostel not far from Krabi town. But you need a motorbike, because the beach (Ao Nang) is far away,about 20 km. For 2 nights or for a stop before you drive to the next islands the hostel is perfect. Very nice owners.
