Pak-Up Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

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.

Very friendly, comfortable, cheap and clean. Good atmosphere and nicely designed. Both bars are cool and the staff are happy to book relatively cheap day trips for you.
Good location; close to restaurants, bars, markets, but not to the beach.
Although, not accessible for those with disabilities (the room are on the second and third level with no lift in the building)

The best hostel ever out of all the other places that I stayed. Modern and clean facilities with comfortable beds, clean and wide bathroom/shower place, super helpful and friendly staffs and the best thing is this hostel has two bars (ground level and rooftop) where you can meet lots of other travellers which was the best part of staying here. Also, they help you arrange tours with reasonable price which I fully take advantage of. It was definitely the best hostel! Highly recommended!!

Stayed here for 3 nights in an 8 person mixed dorm. The beds were huge and had very spacious storage draws underneath that could be locked with a padlock. The sky bar was great and gave a panoramic view of Krabi and had tasty cocktails and live music. The showers were lovely and warm and the whole place was very clean. The staff were very good and professional and you could get drinks from the lobby when the bars were closed. Overall great hostel.

A friend and I stayed here for two nights over the Christmas period and it still was pretty cheap! We stayed in a 10 bed dorm and had the best time! The beds are comfortable and the room is quite spacious with large lockers under the beds for your bags and valuables. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the wifi is pretty good too. The bathrooms are good. Clean and the shower has excellent pressure. 50 baht charge in a mini bus from the pier straight off the ferry which was very handy. Highly recommended :)

By far the cleanest, cleverest and most well looked after hostel we went to. Comfy beds, great linen, amazing hot showers and super cheap. Cool bar on top - watch out - their cocktails are rather strong. It is very near to the night markets and the pier. It was a great place to chill out after our crazy stay at Koh Phi Phi
