Stepping off the boat we were unsure as where we should stay. We asked a couple of people and they recommended Pak Up. We took a short taxi journey there and there was plenty of room at the hostel for the small fee of £4.50 a night. All the staff were very helpful and with a 24 hour reception all issues are easily resolved, should they arise. The beer was cheap (as it always is in Thailand) and they even had a bar and a pool table in the garden area which is very sociable at night. The toilet facilities are very clean and tidied throughout the day which is a bonus and the beds were comfortable, each with a plug socket, so no sharing was necessary. The hostel is situated close to a few other bars and plenty of restaurants. The river at the bottom of the road is about a 100m walk and going to Ralay beach is made both easy and cheap it is cheap to get there. I'd recommend the hostel to anyone and if I return to Krabi it will be the only place I stay.
