I stayed at Banana Bungalows for 6 nights and had an incredible time. the staff is down to earth and relaxed, but run a very organized establishment! very kind, funny, and warm. I love that they check in with you daily after dinner, asking if you need help planning your next day... whether it's getting to the airport or coordinating... More

Myself and two friends spent 6 weeks travelling through Thailand recently and Banana Bungalows was one of our favourite places! We loved Krabi but it's so nice to be out of the tourist hub but within easy reach of it. We had no problems getting there as the owner arranged a taxi to pick us up when we called which... More

On arrival the lovely Jenny went through several information sheets too many on how the 'commune' works whilst commune chief Ollie (the owner?) patronised us about our budget, we were inquiring into prices, as you do. Apparently we should "go back home to work". There is an information sheet about which questions you can't ask Ollie. I love stuff like... More

Best of class backpacker place like you always dream of - suited in a village without any other tourist, beautifully planted into a mangrove forest with an own seafront. The view is out of this world and when the Muslim prayer sets in with the sunset, echoed by mountains and sea, every sort of stress is gone. Hammocks top the... More

This place is in a peaceful location and is perfect if you want to relax in silence whilst reading a book etc. We took a day tour to Emerald Lake, Hot Springs and Tiger Cave Temple which was brilliant - an absolute must! THE ONLY NEGATIVE - I left The Bananas with mixed feelings, this is because I felt the... More

Following other reviews we stayed in Bananas for nine nights and it was the best choice. It is aprox 30km away from Krabi town and away from all the noise and tourists. It is located in small village and we felt like we get to know more real and authentic Thailand, not the one for tourists. Oli is really nice... More

Stayed here for three nights in the dorm. Really enjoyed my time here, it was a very sociable, each night at 7.30 there was a group dinner for 150 baht for starter,main and dessert, really good price for what you got, you could even have seconds! It was also a great chance to meet other travellers. The doorms were okay,... More

Great place for everyone who is looking for a quiet and secluded place with a beautiful sea view, friendly staff and good mood spreading owner Ollie in Krabi. The idea of communal dinner is also very nice. The bungalows are clean and spacious.
