The hostel is based in a perfect location right by the acropolis entrance! Amazing part of town, very pretty. Lots of places to see eat and drink! The hostel itself supplies a good breakfast, rooms are adequate. There is a great roof too bar view. Hostel needs to stop squeaking bunk beds, renew showers, staff need to be more openly welcome, communal area don't offer much. It is a expensive hostel which is relative to competition, but for the price it should be a lot better.

Unfortunately we did not get a chance to stay at this hostel due to a change of circumstance. However we we're contacted a few days before said stay to ask if we needed a airport pick up, which is very helpful. And the owner was very understanding about our cancellation.

Good hostel with regards to facilities. Wifi is very fast, tv and movies are good, breakfast is good tea toast fruit and eat as much as you want. Location is just in the edge of little India, good spot right in the heart if Singapore within walking distance of everywhere. Staff were very helpful and understanding. The one thing I would advise would be to add curtains on the beds as they are cubicle style. Other than that I would recommend this hostel.

Pak-Up Hostel

Krabi, Thailand
83%

This hostel looks really great, there are two bars and lots of common space. The rooms are large and beds comfortable. It does seem to have a lot of cleaning going on but, it seems like it is quite superficial. More attention needs to be paid to the areas that are not in constant use or on show. For a very large hostel with 2 bars there is no food. And also no air con in the common areas. You can hire scooters to travel around which u will need. Wifi is very poor. Staff very helpful

Good place for a short stay, rooms are good showers are clean, but a quiet stay for those looking for some peace and quiet, not a party hostel. I would stay here but only for a few nights, not because the place is t good but because it doesn't offer lots in the way of atmosphere or additional experience.

This is a good hostel! It facilities are good and room qualities good too! However it does seem to pride it self on being clean, but I would say only superficially! It does need some more attention to detail. It's location is good, but it is a fair way from Khoisan road if that's what your looking for. There are some good food places near by street 20! Plus the train station isn't far either. Sky bar is just around the corner and cabs around Bangkok are reasonable.

Overall the hostel is good, it is a little noisy but no more than the average back packer hostel, music is off by 11/12 too. The staff are helpful with organising trips buses etc. it's a great stop to explore pp. food is good and not too expensive. We are staying here again on our way back through pp. the private rooms are very good, ac big comfortable, well worth the extra couple of quid. I would reccomend a stay here! Be careful with wet floors, I slipped and really hurt my knee!

Is in the main shopping district rigt by a train station. It is a very good base to go off and explore. The dorm rooms are medium size, heating in the rooms is ok, but hard to balance between the top and bottom bunks. There is minimal plates knifes etc to use, but there is a good communal room. There is a washer /dryer but it does not dry your clothes at all so if you are here in winter it will take a few days. This hostel is fairly a average. There was construction on during our stay. V load!

Hostel is a good stay when seeing the warriors. Food is good which was a real bonus, and the private rooms are good value for money. Would choose these over communal rooms. The staff were very helpful when we had to change our booking last minute. The hostel is a welcome stay away from the hustle of xiian. On first arrival the hostel from the outside doesn't look like much but you will be please fly suprised. Good stay here would reccomend staying here.

Good location right next to the train station, so it's easy to get to and get around from here. The staff were also very helpful. However we were not keen on beijing itself. As for the hostel it's an old refurb hotel so the rooms are good, clean and fairly new. However it does smel of smoke (but so does everywhere else in china) and I would not advise eating there as we saw the kitchen. On what must have been a bad day and it was horrific. Good overall but I'm sure better can be found.

This hostel is close to the airport and the owner supplies a pick up and drop off service which was perfect for our 1 night stay. Other than that I would not stay here, cold, middle of no where, nobody there, no privacy, it appears that the gentleman who is very nice has just turned his home into a hostel. Perfect for a stop over close to the aiport.

The hostel was pretty good. Very hit and air con is only on after 7pm till 10am, and this is only in the rooms not the communal areas which have none. Toilets are located in the dorms and and some times used by non dorm users, can be a little frustrating. The security was good, but you need your own lock, only big enough to fit an iPad mini. Showers were stone cold but pressure good. Great location though and worth the visit. A mid range hostel for the area, Vivi v helpful!!

The area around the hostel is residential but feels pretty safe. It is also located on the bus tour route. Good place for a short time stop over.
