Stayed for a couple nights in a dorm room. It's pretty close to everything in town like the night market. Across the road you can get a decent lunch for not too much and down the road is the river where the view is awesome.

This was a great hostel! Very clean, good staff, beautiful rooms with reading lights, wifi, and a outlet at every bed. The only thing that annoyed me was that you had to provide your own locks for the storage bins, but that’s a small complaint. We went in the off season and it wasn’t too busy, but would be great...

Only stayed for 2 nights but it was absolutely brilliant! The beds are huge and comfy with actual duvets!!! And provide loads of stowage for your bags underneath. The bathrooms are communal but very clean and the hostel has a nice lobby/common area with a travel desk. The staff are very friendly and organise pick-ups for further travel. They also... More

Everything about this hostel is excellent! I agree with everything that has been said, but these are the things I'd like to point up: staff is super-helpful and gives honest advice on the tours around Krabi town, which is important if your stay in Krabi is only a few days long. In the evenings, you can either relax and watch... More

Literally the best hostel I've stayed in, the rooms are themed to school subjects, and the beds are named according to that subject. You also get a large drawer underneath the bed to store your belongings which was very handy. The staff were extremely helpful and it's a great place to meet other travellers. There are two bars and a... More

Great value for the most high standard hostel in Krabi. Rooftop bar and playground area keeps you occupied with other hostel guests. Staff very efficient and have sound knowledge on what is going on in Krabi and how to get to the other islands. You can book with them. Have a few drinks, relax and unwind at Pak-up!

Everything about his hostel was great the set up of the rooms the check in and the roof top bar. We stayed for two nights and realised the nightlife is at the hostel. It's clean friendly and in a great location. Good value for money and if you want you can chill out and watch a film!

Stayed here with a friend in a 8 bed dorm. The place has a very nice interior, nice facilities and two bars. Dorms and bathrooms are very clean and tidy. In the dorms are large boxes under the bed (which you can put a lock on) in which you can put your backpack and other belongings. A safe place to... More

Clean, comfortable, relaxed hostel. Bunk dorms are made with fresh sheets as you arrive, with towels for 50baht extra. Two bars, a coffee shop and a restaurant on site. Free (slow) wifi throughout. Clean bathrooms. Can rent iPads or watch films downstairs. We paid 220 baht each a night which is a good price. Would definitely recommend to all young... More

The interior of the hostel, is like you see it on the internet and is really ok, nothing special but you have probably seen worse in Asia. When we arrived we got one of the most unfriendly welcoming gestures so far. The woman's at the reception don't feel any need of giving someone information what I for my part consider... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
'Once you come to Pak Up, you will never want to pak up.' If you are looking for a top notch hostel within accessible distance to all of Krabis' famous attractions while paying a budget price then you are at the right place! At Pak Up, we work hard to ensure every detail is right and the place is spotlessly clean, beds are comfy while providing all the best nightlife Krabi Town has to offer within our safe and secure premises. While still relatively new, we have been constantly recommended and commended on all hostel websites, this year being classed as top three in Asia 2013 by Hostelbookers. Pak Up management strives to go from strength to strength, keeping up with all the new global trends in the world of hostels and budget travel. When you arrive, you will notice this is nothing like the run of the mill hostel you will typically find in SE Asia. As a former school, the hostel is themed accordingly room by room and is in a loft style oversized setting. All our rooms are set to the same standard, with international plugs, reading lights, under-bed lockers and 3.5 ft beds. From the ground floor reception, to the fourth floor Top-Up Bar (Sky Bar) and back down to the increasingly famous 'Playground' downstairs, this place is designed to impress. During the day you will be able to either take advantage of the many tours available at our reception desk or just chill out on one the many terraces dotted all over the hostel. Our tour desk offers a seamless way to see everything in Krabi at a reasonable price and you will never be left stranded anywhere. Our staff are trained to make sure you avoid stress. At night, well that's another matter all together! Playground, as the name suggests, is a place for big kids like us to socialize, drink, play, and generally acquire great memories along with great friends from day one. The staff and in house entertainers will strive to offer the very best in hostel entertainment with great deals on whenever you care to visit our bars. Our 'Playground' is currently the only place in south east asia to offer regular Jelly Wrestling with a dedicated pit and commentaries. Top-Up bar, with its panoramic views, superb mixologists and breezy feel, is a place to escape after a long day travelling. ... more   less
