I've been backpacking around the world numerous times and I'd go as far as to say as this is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. It has everything you need: spacious air conditioned rooms with plenty of storage space and comfortable beds, a pool, a table tennis table, a communal area, huge single sex bathrooms, wifi which...

Amazing pool and surround setting, with a look of a 4 star hotel. The rooms are clean, your bed area is big, the locker size is wonderful. Pretty nice customer service. Very clean and nice bathrooms. Just a little far walk from the beach, but many of the hostels in the area are. A little more pricey than many of... More

I love this place soooooo much!! It's really awesome. When I first step in Glur, I feel like "this is what I looking for". You don't have to worry about anything. Nice and clean, relaxed all the time. And you can chose either private room or shared room. You can meet a lot of travelers here. It worths the value.... More

One of the nicer resorts in Krabi, Glur is almost an escape away from the hustle of Ao Nang. Facilities are clean and rooms are made up everyday. There's plenty of space for guests to lounge and there's also a ping pong table and pool for your enjoyment. It looks better in person and pictures cannot do this place justice.... More

The title says it all. The place is reasonable priced and in walking distance to the town and beach. There is a night market right down the street. The staff was very helpful in helping to find transportation when leaving. The dorms have nice private cubbies to sleep in (with curtains). Definitely recommended. Oh, and good, free wifi.

Privacy, comfort, tours, location, and a pool :) Each dorm bed is set up like a pod with it's own outlet, light, locker, mirror, closet and curtain. A laundry sink and clothes line are located on site but if you prefer a washer is just short walk down the street and is available 24/7. Overall the common area is a... More

Very nice hostel! Beautiful public area in garden style with hammocks and pool. But the best thing are the dormbeds! Could you ever walk into your locker?? ;-) The beds have also curtains which makes the stay more privat during night. Small breakfast is also included and free tea
