    This was absolutely our FAVOURITE accommodation! We’ve stayed at many hostels in both Asia and Europe but by far, Olli and the team, created a beautiful, relaxing, home away from home. The bungalows are surrounded by beautiful mangroves, right next to stunning blue water, no crowds, no loud vendors, just kind people and delicious food. Everything you need is at the Bananas - we wish we could have stayed longer! Oli, thank you for the lovely stay, please tell diva Sumo we miss her!

    Everyone is friendly, great location but a challenge to get there. The three island boat tour is not worth the cost. The boat was very old and rough, the “snorkeling “ non existent and embarking and disembarking involved walking in knee deep water with mud and rocks.

    Really great if you want a get away from the madness of Krabi. We loved this as a couple there was a great vibe with the guest and staff. The communal dinners were really nice, be aware mostly they are vegetarian as the host Olly is vegetarian. We are big meet eaters but were really impressed. Due to the communal dinners we quickly felt like a big family with all the other guests. The huts as so cool but you will find some creepy crawlies.It’s a bit of a walk to get anywhere without bikes.

    Out of the busy Krabi town and ao nang area, it is perfect if you want some downtime, there is not much going on at all during the hostel as i was the only one in the dorm for the majority of my stay.the staff took such good care of me shout-out to the volunteers Sinan and Pablo! They took great care of me. As you are far away you must eat at the hostel and it is quite expensive, compared to the usual prices. Wasn’t happy about how the trash in my room was never taken out during my entire stay.
