This place is pretty cool. There's a couple of bars and the lobby has a tv room to make waiting for buses bearable. The place is quite modern and trendy. The staff seem nice and are able to book transfers easily. Would recommend.

This is a fab, modern hostel with small dorms, where you have your own lockers. Really clean rooms and bathrooms. Staff were all so helpful and friendly- they helped us book our accommodation for our next stop. The only negative I would say is that the beach is a good half hour drive away. But this was a great place... More

Great great value! This hostel is definitely the best I have been. The designs were great and it's clean, with big and comfortable beds. I highly recommend this hostel. The best way to travel in krabi is probably to stay here for a night or two, then move other islands like Railey and stay there for a night. There's a... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights in April this year and had a great stay. The hostel is in a great, reasonably quiet area of Krabi, but equally very close to all the action. As such, it's peaceful when you want to sleep and within a short walk of the local action (night market, bars, food market, fire... More

Pak Up Hostel must be the best option for Krabi. Clean beds, good service, huge shared bathrooms. Almost everything a traveller needs. Nice minimalistic design everywhere. Funky bar on top and around. Would choose again.

Very nice hostel, very central, nice view, wondweful facilities. Roof top bar is a plus! Cons - room too big (10 people) people comming in and getting out of the room the whole night. One can find accomodation for 2 people in the region for the same price as the hostel. But the hostel atmosphere there is the best.

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
