Baan Taveesri is a little off the beaten path, but that's not too much to worry about as it's very quiet around the area. The Lomprayah bus driver did not have a clue where it was, so it could have been a struggle finding it if I hadn't spotted it by chance. It's on Leela Valley, there are other resorts/hostels on that road that have been around longer than Baan Taveesri has.
It's a very decent and cheap place to stay in Krabi. It's a little out of the way from Ao Nang beach, but if you don't mind walking, it only takes about 20-30 minuntes depending on how fast you like to walk.
We were greeted by probably the cutest Labrador, known as Carrot, who loves to play and bark loudly at cars. Coming back to see her after a day out was the best. We were also welcomed by Charlie (the owner of Baan Taveesri, along with his partner Jeab), who upgraded from a basic room to a standard, at no extra cost... result!
Our room was spacious, spotless, with a fridge, aircon, and T.V with a dvd player. There's a bunch of dvd's to choose from in the reception area. Our room was cleaned every other day, which was not a problem.
You can book daily tours at the desk. We booked a tour to Kho Phi-Phi Island for my birthday. It turned out to be pretty good! Price was reasonable too.
The only downfall to this place that we had was lack of someone at the desk or to help out almost everyday. Admittedly you can go next door for help or ring them, but there was one day where no one was around for about 10 hours.
Internet only works downstairs, although you might be able to get a weak signal on the other floors.
One last thing to mention is the local restaurant next door. They mostly serve Thai food with a few western options as well. It's incredibly cheap. Between my girlfriend and I we had 2/3 meals between us and a drink and the most we paid was 200 baht. I highly recommend going there as it's cheaper and tastier than the food served along the main road.
