I stayed here for 5 nights in Krabi Town. The room i stayed has totally six beds and i am on the upper bed. First, the staff there are friendly and willing to meet most of the request you have made. The common areas including six tables, checkin counter, tours leaflets desk and a little open kitchen. The place looks really fantastic. To enter into your room, you have to climb up the stairs but it is not a big deal if you can not with a very big luggage haha. The bed in he room is gigantic. Also, there are an area to keep your own belongings but you have to bring you own lock. Since i dont have any valuable stuffs, it is not a big problem for me to not have a lock. The hostel provided with shampoo, shower gel, hairdryer (note: only one in the second floor). It would be perfect if the hostel can provide each tourist with 1 or 2 hanger as there are no space to hang out all the cleaned clothes. For your information, toliets and shower room only in the 2nd and 4th floor, it would be a little bit inconvenient, BUT it is acceptable. What impressed me the most is the room price include the breakfast, such as toast and bananas. It is a all-rounded hostel. Last but not least, it only takes 8 to 10 minutes to the night market and transportation there is acessible. The hostel even surrounded by motorbike and bicycle rental services shop and tour guide shop. Definitely a good place. It is a pleasant stay for me in Krabi town. There are nothing to complaint at all!!!!! Highly recommend you to stay here

I really liked this hostel. It's located right in Krabi town next to a market and also there is another market on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon to late evening (I loved that market, couldn't stop eating all the delicious food and buying loads of clothes!) The hostel itself was very clean and tidy. I especially really liked the dorm room, the beds were huge, also it's the little things that make a big difference like just having a ledge next to your bed to put some of your things on, a cubby hole at the end of your bed to put and lock away your valuables (padlock needed) and also a curtain to pull across for some privacy and to keep the light out. They all make a big difference! The showers were good too. It's not very Harry Pottery themed, apart from some Hogwarts names here and there, but that doesn't really matter. It was nice though to have Harry Potter films on during breakfast and you can put the other films on too if you fancy a movie day which is nice sometimes. So a great hostel! Would definitely recommended.
Great hostel in Krabi Town”
Having stayed a week in Ao Nang I found Krabi Town to be extremely boring and way more difficult to do any of the activities in the great area. If you're going to stay in Krabi Town, then Hogwarts is a wonderful place. The setup is a little weird with all the showers and toilets on the second floor, but other than that the rooms are wonderful. The beds have curtains for privacy and there are huge lockers for your stuff. The breakfast is basic toast, cereal and fruit. The staff were good and were able to communicate clearly. If you are looking for a place in Krabi Town, it's a great spot.
Perfect location for traveler who wants to have a sightseeing session in Krabi town. You can walk everywhere provided it is not raining. Halal food is everywhere. The nearest food haven you can from this lodging is the market that sells variety of food, drinks, snacks and fruits. I think it is quite safe to walk at night because other travelers are also exploring the town. It was a night market on Wednesday evening. The hostel also provide touring package and I chose the 7 island and sunset tour. The host allowed me to check in earlier than it was supposed to be. I had a fun stay.
Cheap hostel just around Krabi town”
The hostel is near the night market in Krabi town. They have cheap rooms too. I opted to stay in the mix dormitory. They have good beds too. Only not advisable if your travelling with big luggages since they do not have lift. But the front desk was also helpful.
Cute hostel, amazing staff!”
The location was excellent as it was around the corner from the night market and a short walk to the boats to Railay. The place is new and has great facilities but could definitely do more with the theme. That said, I have absolutely no complaints because the staff here went out of their way to help me during my short stay. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone passing through Krabi!
One of the best hostel in Krabi. Value for money and the location is perfect . Just behind the night market. The room was very clean with both air-con and fan. And lastly,the female and male staff was really friendly! They willing to help you whenever you need them. Totally recommend! 👍 👍 👍👍👍
Nicest hostel ive stayed in in Thailand. Great bug beds with curtains for privacy, steps up to the top bunk so no annoying ladder, great showers, around the corner from awesome markets with the best food, and you can easily get a taxi boat to railay an the caves as a great day trip, but still nice and close to the tiger temple which is another must do in krabi!
A cool place to stay! ”
I wish I stayed here the previous time I came to Krabi town. The beds are spacious, private locker near your bed, huge curtain for privacy and beautiful wood bed frames. Lots of bathrooms which was nice! They even started breakfast a little earlier because I was leaving for the airport earlier than 7. Very nice stay!
Nice hostel ever!! ”
If you fine some cheap hostel. I recommend Hogwortz hostel. Good location, nice staff, clean room and comfortable.
Clean, affordable and comfy / Receptionist could be more friendly”
It's very close to all main attraction in Krabi. Great value for money, super clean toilets and showers and nice beds. Only con: the lady at the front desk could be more friendly. Check in is 2pm. A arrived around 12pm and asked for an early check in. She said I could enter in 1 hour, so I decided to wait at the reception. 2 hours later she allowed me in.
The place was very clean, dorms have all the facilities. The location it's in Krabi Town ( no beach) but easy for move to a lot of places.
Good location: near the night market and a smaller local / cheaper market. Good and clean rooms. It is in Krabi so you have to commute to the beach (in Ao Nang) Breakfast is quite simple but fine. Good rooms, good beds.
Decent hostel for one night”
I stayed for one night to catch my flight out of Krabi. The staff wasn't too helpful because I asked if anyone else was going to the airport early so we could split a cab and they said no. I went to my dorm and found out there was a girl who was going the same time (same flight!!) so we went down and rearranged our cabs so we could share.... A/C only works when you are in the room and have your keycard in a slot to register.
best hostel ever !”
i stayed there two times (2016 and returned 2019) cause it is one of the cleanest, best organized hostels i have ever been. the price is great, beds are comfy with personal locker, free soap and shampoo and bananas for breakfast. you can refill your water and book cheap transport to other destinations. next to the hostel is everyday nightmarket where you can have really great food. the hostel is directly in tje city centre. i really recommend this place !
Good location and helpful staffs”
Good to stay here if come to Krabi town. And staffs r very friendly and helpful.
small blanket ”
The blanket is too small. I have been in Krabi for two week. You can find better hostel !
Comfortable stay for a night”
Cons - shower room has some stink smell, water drains a bit slow, cleanliness could be better -bed is too hard -WiFi connection is not stable, ended up using my own phone data. - have to pay 300 baht deposit for each person, since I didn't have enough cash, they keep our passports until check-out. Pros: - very near to the weekend night market area, excellent location - the hostel is very quite at night, i had my good sleep. - love the room ambience, nice smell and clean, and privacy space with curtain. - they provide bath towel, shampoo and hair dryer - strong water shower pressure - simple breakfast such as cornflakes, milk, breads, bananas, coffee and tea -there is storage for luggage outside the room, you may bring your own lock to keep things safe.
Staff just not very friendly, I dont even think I got a smile.”
Overall was fine, the staff answered my questions etc just unlike a lot of other places I have stayed this was nothing special at all. I have found the hostels in the south to be a bit more expensive and a bit less friendly than the north, Cambodia, Vietnam and even China. I attribute this to the bad mannered backpackers and tourists I seem to have crossed paths with more and more the further south into Asia I moved. not related to hogwarts apart from a picture outside you can put your face in.
