                Cleanliness, Friendliness, Easy Access

                I have always been skeptical about backpacker hostel especially interms of cleanliness. So this time I decided to try it myself for the first time and I was quite satisfied. Ao Nang Backpacker is about 20mins walk to the beach but you can rent a bike from them directly and it only take you about 5 mins! Rooms are clean and safe to keep your belongings. Though there is only 2 bathroom to share with everybody, you dont really have to worry about the cleanliness. Best part of staying in this hostel, is that you get a chance to meet with other backpackers too and share lots of travel experience. And when you meet someone who has been staying there so many times, you know its a good hostel. I will definitely be back to stay here whenever I'm back to Ao Nang.

                I stayed at this hostel because it was on the top of a backpacker hostel list. Originally I had looked at the iRest and ultimately ended up moving there. This hostel is fine - clean, wi-fi. There wasn't much in the way of food/drink, tour info, hang out space, etc. It's pretty much the basic of the basics. There are restaurants down the road in either direction. It quite a ways from the beach and all the nightlife, markets, tour bookings, moped rental, massage, etc... like almost 2 miles, not what I expected! I didn't pay the deposit to get a key card because reception was supposed to be open from 7am - 10pm. Well, I woke early and went out exploring. I came back about 7:30am and no one was there. I waited about 15 -20 min, had to go next door and ask to use the restroom, then decided to just leave for the day.

                We really enjoyed our stay there ! The public room has a cool vibe, there's pillows and beds that you can relax on. There's even a tv with american movies. The dorm was very clean and there's a balcony that you can use for drying clothes. The only downside is the location, you have to walk 25 minutes to go to Ao nang beach

                After a serious hangover it was a lovely place to freshen up and get some well needed sleep. A bit of a walk down to the markets and beach but we didn't mind, it kept us away from the club noise. Average size lockers for a small backpack. Plenty of showers and toilets, only had a few guests so they were never occupied. Not much atmosphere for partying but still got on fine with the girls in our dorm and helped us with our future travels. Would definitely stay here again as it was reliable, safe and most of all..clean!

                1. Room and beds were clean. 2. Balcony. 3. Staff were very friendly, approachable and reliable.

                I was backpacking with my friend, decided to get a cheap hostel for 2 nights in krabi since we were on a tight budget and we came across Ao Nang Backpacker. Decided to book 2 beds in a mixed dormitory. Room, beds, balcony, toilet, were all clean. Ample space to place our huge bags on the floor. Sufficient plugs. I found it very good that they had lockers for us to keep our valuables. The wifi was strong for phones and also laptops. Staff was very friendly, approachable and reliable. 👍 Hostel located on a great side of Ao Nang.

                I stayed in the girls dorm with a/c and was very comfortable here. My last night there I was the only one which was nice. It was quiet while I was there. If you want more of a party scene this may not be right for you. If you want a clean, quiet, comfortable stay at a good price, I'd definitely recommend it. A bit of a walk to the beach, but I enjoyed the exercise.

                The hostel is ideally located; work those legs and walk to the beach. It's on the main road so easily accessible and has a lot of good eateries nearby.

                This was my first time at any kind of a hostel and I absolutely loved my stay. It is on the main road and the airport bus drops you right in front. It is close to the beach though there are other options that are closer. Post noon there are a lot of roadside eateries that open up en route to the beach and they are extremely cheap and super tasty. The hostel is airy, clean and safe. The staff is extremely polite and very helpful. I was here for three nights and found it to be very comfortable. Would totally recommend it to everyone.

                Clean, friendly staff, relaxed

                We (3 friends) stayed for one night. We were just looking for cheap accommodation for a night on the way to Phi Phi Island. We stayed in a large open-style dorm room. There were lockers for valuables (300baht deposit). The place was very relaxed. People can hang out in the dorm, or in the t.v/lounge room, or out the front there is a small bar area with a pool table. The rooms were air-conditioned. Location is about a 20 minute walk from the beach but its a nice walk with lots a bars and restaurants along the way. Happy Customers - great value for money.

                It was easy to get to the hostel. We took a public bus from the airport - to and fro - and it stopped right in front of the hostel! My cousin and I booked the 6 br female dorm but it wasn't occupied by anyone else. It was clean and neat and a pleasant place to sleep in! We rented a motorbike on one of the days - although I can't remember for how much. Topped up petrol on our own to discover the island! Such a great stay for the three nights!

                VFM budget hostel, great staff”

                Very helpful staff, budget accommodation, facilities

                Great Staff! Staff is very helpful and attends to your all and silly queries with nice smile and politeness. The room was bit over crowded with 14 beds in single large room but considering the low price of stay I think it should be worth. Clean beds and toilets, Laundry and self-cooking facilities, Big TV room to relax.

                It was alright”

                Friendly staff, great location, good cafe

                The Good: The location of the hostel is its biggest plus point. You can access all local food shops and the great Aonang beach in just 15-20 minutes. For a budget hostel, it was impressive that the hostel provided AC in the rooms at night and also had hot shower. The front side cafe is a great place to relax and have a chit chat with other people from the hostel. The staff were friendly enough to provide necessary assistance and information. The bad: The washrooms are not clean that much, ants are there in the washroom and they do not clean it every day. Also the beds are not cleaned every day. One room has 30 beds stuffed into it, so it feels a bit congested. Conclusion: Well, you get what you pay for, so there is nothing much to complain about this budget hostel. It is good who backpackers who want to crash in for 2-3 nights but I would not recommend it for longer stay.

                customer service, conditions, employees

                Nice environment. During my living, not so many guests, only 5 in the big room which may contain about 30 people, so it is quiet.It is clean an tidy and employees are kind there. If you are a backpacker, it will be a nice choice.

                Clean, Friendly Staff & Comfortable beds

                I have been to many backpackers and this is definitely one of the best one. The only downfall was the extremely slow water pressure for shower. Tuk tuk from the city is only 30 baht per person which is fairly reasonable as the place is a bit out of the city.

                Price, clean, location

                Over all it is very clean place. Absolutely value for money. Its about 1km from the beach but it is a pleasant walk. Too many local cafe and takeaways, close to fruit market. Basically everything you need at your door steps.

                Really lovely hostel, I would def stay here again!”

                staff,clean rooms,comfortable beds and awesome owner

                This was the best hostel I've stayed so far! The owner,Go, was very friendly and attentive. The rooms were very clean and really comfortable. It is a lovely place and a great place if you want to relax. The thing about this hostel is that it is a little bit far away from the beach. You have to walk at least 20 minutes to reach it, it is not too bad to be honest.It is just that walking under the sun discourages you a a little bit.
