Absolutely lovely staff! Our boat company forgot to pick us up from the hostel so the lovely lady saw us sitting outside and offered to give us a free ride as she thought we would miss our boat! She was also very helpful with all our inquiries! Location is OK however there's a taxi which stops opposite which takes u straight to ag nang (can't remember how u spell it) it's about 25mins in the taxi and is only 50baht! Would defo return! Rooms are lovely and clean! Best hostel I've stayed in!


Very good value for the money! Only thing we missed was a safety locker. Staff was helpful!


Nice host, nice place, unfortunately lot of ants.


Really lovely and helpful hosts.... Nice vibe, great dorm room on top floor with balcony and no bunkbeds......:) basically great place to rest up for a few days away from over run tourist places :) great local evening food market near by too... Stayed January time.


Amazing!!!!!! Jik is so sweet and kind. Very clean. Blissful mornings as the sun rises and slow setting sunsets from the balcony. This place is like a dream.


I really enjoyed my stay in thanksin.. Mum tai is a beautiful person, very kind and you can ask everything, she's gonna try to explain wherever you need.. The room always was clean, even the bathroom.. And at the top of the building you can see de sunrise be sunset. Is a nice place to stay. You feel at home from the first moment. Cheers.!


The Location is not perfect, but good for us, since we had to go to the International Hospital. This was only 2 km away and only 2 years old.

When we arrived at the hotel the lady at the front desk advised that she has mistakenly over booked us but offered us a room in her cousin's hotel across he road which usually costs twice the price but she gave it to us for the price were going to pay for the original room. She was very kind and helpful and arranged boat transfer tickets for us to get to koh lanta which turned out to be cheaper than buying then from the pier directly including hotel pick up.


We 3njoyed our stay and was locked after

The staff was very friendly but there was an issue with this hostel.. It was infected with bedbugs.. We got alot of bites on our first and second night.


Just stayed here to be a bit closer to the airport. Wouldn't stay here for longer, rooms are okay, beds fine, old, so not that comfy. Cold shower but the rooms without aircon are smoking hot, so a cold shower is kinda nice. The lady is quite helpful, when you push her a little, taxi to the airport was 350B, 20 min ride.. So when I protested, eventually she tried en arranged a normal price. Nothing around, few local restaurants, night market is quite far, 7/11 other side of the street.


Relaxed place, well worth the money. The woman managing the place most of the time is really nice! Laundry is available for very little money and you get coffee and tea for free. The dorm is a bunch of mattresses on the top floor for everyone to go, which was all right for me, but I guess some people could find this annoying. Over all a nice place!


Rats run freely in this hostel.


I stayed in a double bed private room which was very comfortable. Big room with two windows and a cupboard. Very clean, quiet and a good place to stay for a longer period of time. The hostel is around the corner from two night markets and various other stores.


Its ok for a overnight stay but the place itself looks shabby. Although the room and bathroom were clean but unless you are in a hurry you can get better places to stay in Krabi for the same value.


The staff were so friendly and helpful! The room was big, the bed was comfy, the air con worked well, the shower was good, there was a fridge, overall a nice place.
