Loved is secluded the place was, just what I needed after a few days in Phi Phi. Natalie was such a sweetheart but the owner always seemed to be very short with me. Not sure if he was stressed but he didn't give off the friendly vibe that I had read about in previous reviews. Anyways, lovely hostel, absolutely beautiful view. Would definitely recommend!
Loved this hostel! It was more than a hostel, it was a community experience. Complete with family style dinners and common areas that drew people together. The in-house kitchen was spectacular, staff beyond friendly and access to book outside tours was quick and easy. I couldn't recommend this hostel any more highly!
Stay here! I originally booked one night and within 20 mins of arrival booked an additional 3. It really does have a special atmosphere this place which is a credit to Oklie and his team. Communal Thai good in the evening is a great chance to soak up each other's stories of travel. It's amazing what you can learn from other people experiences.... Especially when it comes to getting around Thailand. I fully recommend Bananas... You won't regret it! Thank you Ollie, Andrew
Yeah, it was a tad far from anything else, and yes, it was warm in the dorm when it was not raining, and yes, definitely pack the mosquito repellant. But I thought everything else was quite perfect. The room was clean, the staff and guests were friendly, and the quay at the door was beautiful. It was easy to go island hopping, kayaking, exploring the area by scooter or just getting cosy in one of the many hammocks reading a book and having a massage right after. Thanks Oli and all :D
We absolutely loved our stay at Bananas, we were so sad to leave. Olli and the rest of the staff were lovely and helpful. The food was amazing - home-cooked Thai food every evening (e.g. soup and a curry for £3) and wide selection of food, drink and tours on offer at reasonable prices along with some great advice. If we return to Thailand this will be our first port of call!
A great place to come for some relaxation and to get away from the hectic city life. A bit far out of the way so getting there is quite expensive if traveling alone though.
Great place and friendly atmosphere. Bamboo hut was super clean. I would go back there in a heart beat.
The Banana's guest house was the perfect little oasis for our short stay in Krabi. We loved the surprise of a private outdoor shower in our suite (cool feature) and the possibility of renting motorbikes (spent a great day visiting neighboring beaches). Unfortunately we had ants in our room (even though we didn't have any food on us), but we mentioned to the owner (cool guy) and he took care of the issue. Thanks for the great time!
