I actually stayed here in 2011, but I have never forgotten how lovely this hostel was. After months of staying in god awful dives, I remember thinking this place was like a 5* hotel. The beds were big and comfy, the facilities were great and the bathrooms were spotless. It was such a treat to stay here that I booked... More

Nice Hostel with great rooms, lockers, huge bathrooms, laundry facilities and busy bar!! This hostel is a perfect hub before you get anywhere else like the islands, heading south to Malaysia or just to keep around Krabi!! Very close to several facilities!! If in Krabi this is the spot! ;)

The facilities are great. Good showers (although they didn't work for a half hour at one point during my stay), under-the-bed sliding lockers, great bunks, and an outlet and reading light for each bed. There is also several drying lines on each floor for laundry. The wifi was on and off, although generally it worked well.The staff are a bit... More

Easily the best hostel I've checked into in Thailand. Though situated in a slightly remote location, it's so easy to get around Krabi Town from here. The beds are so comfortable and the showers are the only ones in Thailand where I've been able properly adjust the temperature and enjoy really powerful water pressure! The rooms are themed and the... More

A very nice hostel with sturdy bunkbeds and adequate lockable storage space in a convenient location. I stayed in a mixed room with mixed bathrooms and everyone I encountered was polite and friendly to me as an 18year old female backpacker. I would surely recommend this hostel if asked.

Stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time! It's a big hostel that attracts lots of backpackers making it very easy to meet people - also has a bar at its 'playground'. The facilities were better than most other hostels I've stayed in, and you can also organise lots of tours/activities through the hostel. The only negative point... More

This hostel is well designed and organised, clean, modern, and social. The beds are large, comfy, and come with designated locker-drawers underneath big enough for you to store all your belongings, including backpack, which frees up floorspace. Each bed has a small shelf, light, and plug socket, and there are shoe racks outside the dorms. There is wifi for each... More

We moved in here after seeing how busy it looked from outside and it didn't dissapoint! Room was super clean, paid a bit more than usual but they have their own bar and drinking areas with regular activities. Overall it was lush, really easy to get to railay and many other places too.

Great hostel with a lively atmosphere and fun people. The beds are really big and comfortable and the rooms are nice and cool. The staff are helpful and the free rum and mixer when you book something through the hostel is a great idea. I stayed two nights then after I returne from Phi Phi I stayed another night. Loved...

My friend and I stayed here on two separate occasions and loved it both times! The rooms are very cold and cozy and the beds are actually pretty comfy as well. Each bunk has its own huge lockable, roll out compartment that is honestly big enough to hold two large back packs (my pack is about 17 kilos and I... 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 party 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. Pak Up management strives to go from strength to strength, keeping up with all the new global trends in the world of properties and budget travel. When you arrive, you will notice this is nothing like the run of the mill property you will typically find in SE Asia. As a former school, the property 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, bed shelves, towel rails and 3.5 ft beds. 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 of the many terraces dotted all over the property. 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. We have free wifi throughout the hostel, no curfew and a 24 hour reception to keep things practical for our guests. Notably and extremely rare for a hostel in Thailand, we have official registration which means we have passed all national hotel safety standards. Playground, as the name suggests, is a place for big kids like us to socialise, drink, play, and generally acquire great memories along with great friends from day one. The staff will strive to offer the very best in hostel entertainment with great deals on whenever you care to visit our bars. We have a weekly schedule posted in the lobby with daily activities and weekly competitions. These are usually competitive and involve a lot of drinking! ... more   less
