"Great hostel in Krabi Town. Pak Up is very clean and the facilities are excellent. The beds are a great size and there is one draw big enough for two large backpacks per bed. The staff are helpful…"

Liked: Fantastic location. Close to the markets, ships and boats. Can hire scooters for really cheap and the staff were very friendly. Dorms were a great size and had draws underneath so you weren't tripping over everyone's stuff. Lovely communal area.

Disliked: Didn't see the kitchen so can't comment but with food as cheap as 80p just across the road and in markets there was no need to cook.

Liked: It had a good location and is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. Also basically has the only half busy nightlife in the city although we were there out of season.

Disliked: Krabi just wasn't the best of places. Much better to stay at tonsai or railey.

Liked: Very good quality hostel especially compared to some of the other hotels/hostels you might stay in in Thailand. Nice rooftop bar and staff were very helpful with tickets for ferry to Phi Phi and accomodation there as well.

Disliked: Noise from the bar if you are on the second floor does get a bit annoying.

Liked: This hostel was actually epic. Probably one of, if not THE best hostel I've stayed in. The whole place was so clean, showers were epic! Beds were amazing! The place had two bars and a common room and every night they had a cool drinking game competition. Like Flip Cup, Beer Pong, Twister, etc. Unfortunately Krabi isn't a super partying hostel, so the games didn't really take off. But there's a lot of potential there with the right crowd. But even though we didn't do much partying there, we still met some of the best people of our whole trip who we then partied with in Phi Phi.

Disliked: The bars have these drinking games every night, but you have to sort of set it up and organise it yourself, and that turned out to be really hard. Whenever we spoke to someone about it they sent us somewhere else to ask until the boss eventually came.

Liked: This was a really nice place in the middle of all the activities. The airport bus stops in front and you can book all the attractions from them. The dorm was large and the lockers were big and spacious. The bathrooms were clean and plenty of toilets and showers etc. The price was reasonable and the area for meeting others was big and spacious. The staff was helpful and there was ample food places in the area including a night market with really good and cheap food. The rooms had air con and fans.

Disliked: nothing really to complain about

Liked: Awesome hostel. The beds are awesome and very clean. If you stay there make sure to go to Easy Cafe for food. Best food ever, plus super cheap! Its just down the road and around the corner in front of the pier.

Disliked: The staff are unfriendly and very unhelpful. If you want any help you're better off asking other travelers. And the cleaning staff are constantly in and out of the rooms making lots of noise while people are trying to sleep.
