Great hostel!
Review of Pak-Up Hostel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Feb 17, 2013
Pak-Up Hostel is a great hostel in Krabi Town. The beds have real mattresses and spacious under-bed storage. The design is very cool, too. They have lots of information on tours and trips to Railay Beach and Koh Phi Phi, etc. Too bad that you have to pay to use the computers and the lobby/common area is none too spacious. Not to mention that the reception staff are rather rude. But, get used to that because if you're not paying them or ingratiating, then that "Land of Smiles" propaganda goes out of the window in the parts of Siam, which I visited. Nonetheless, I would recommend it as more than satisfactory budget/backpacker accommodations.

Stayed here for one night and it is very cool! Stayed in a mixed dorm
Which was fine

Very clean and modern. Has two bars which are great. One on the roof and another cool outdoor bar

Beds are a bit hard so didn't sleep very well but the atmosphere makes up for it

Fantastic. The price - spot on. Location perfect, 1min walk from night food market and massage places. Unfortunately a lot of the nice hippy bars have shut down in krabi so the rooftop terrace is brilliant. Beds SO comfy, clean sheets, huge underbed storage which u lock with ur own padlock. Very helpful staff. Huge shared bathroom area with loads of clean showers and toilets.
I won't be staying anywhere else in Krabi again - solo female traveller 23 years old

Room tip: I stayed in 8 bed dorm and it was lovely, chatted with lots of other solo travellers...stayed on 1st floor up so it was ok-didn't get noise from rooftop.

I spent 5 days here recently and was pleasantly surprised and how comfortable it was, especially for a dorm. The beds are big and each has a giant storage space for your stuff. The a/c room was cool and comfortable each night.

Location is good, close to food, night markets, pier for water taxis, and near bars as well.

They have two bars in the hostel, one on the food, both had a decent crowd, some live music, and were obviously quite convenient. They are a little pricey compared to stuff elsewhere in town but they has some sort of special most nights.

Internet-wifi quality was excellent and there is a network for each floor so it was quite fast.

Bathrooms were clean and quite large- one complaint I had was though they claim to have a few hot showers I wasn't successful and finding one. Not a big deal for me but might be for others.

Overall a good experience, you can probably find a private room for the same price around time (270B ish) but for the same price you get a lot more resources and opportunities to make friends at a place like this.

staff: very friendly and very helpful. good english.
dorm rooms: clean, modern, good A/C, fan, 10 beds, a light each, a locker each but have to provide your own padlock.
location: 5min walk away from the amazing night food market. pier is 5min walk (can get a boat to Railay from here). bus stop across the road to go to Ao Nang.
facilities: good wifi in rooms. 2 bars on site make it a sociable place. showers are great, hot water, good wash room and toilet area, washing machines, drying line.

we were here for 3 nights. while we were here we had to be moved out of our room because someone saw a cockroach one evening. they moved us quickly and were dismantling the room the next day. apparently there was a cockroach problem in there recently caused by someone having a nest of them in their bag! the staff seemed very keen to sort it quickly. i must stress that this hostel is very clean!

i would stay here again but there is not a lot to do in krabi. location wise i'd say this is the best you will get for krabi.

railay is a good place to visit and i have heard Ao Nang is ok.

Stayed there 3 nights. After the 1st, almost felt like home. Its in krabi town. No beaches here. You have to go to ao nang or one of the islands for that. But im a city guy. The town area is walks away. 10 minutes walk to the night market. Lotsa eating places in the area. And if you muslim like me, there are halal stalls at the night market or in the evening, down the street near the river.

Love the place. Will go back to krabi just to stay there. Hahahaha.
