Best hosteld i've been to !”

Pak up hostel is a great place to stay and to meet travelers from all around the world. The location is great, the facilities are excellent, and the price is cheap- Best to book this hostel through Agoda- the best deal and the cheapest price for sure, even relatively to booking straight via the hostel itself. All friends i met at these hostel stayed there for 4-5 nights even though there is not much to do in Krabi, it's just a great place to chill out and make friends. The rooms and showers are very convenient. I spent here two nights when arrived from the northern islands, went from here to Railay Beach (the pier is very close and it's 150 BHT for 30 min each direction). Near the hostel is a night market which is very good- tasty and cheap. Also spent there the night before my flight to BKK- its 30 min from Krabi airport. highly recommended !

My favorite hostel in Thailand!”

I stayed at Pak Up Hostel on two separate occasions but I love it so much! The staff is very friendly, it's super clean, comfortable, and a great location in Krabi Town! Only a short walking distance to the night market with great deals on delicious food. They also offer free BBQ skewers every night and you can book tours directly through the hostel. For example, you can hop on a boat to Railay Beach (one of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand) for only 300 Baht round-trip. I've already referred multiple people to stay at Pak Up Hostel during my travels. Highly recommend staying here for a few nights during your visit to Krabi!

Awesome, incredibly comfortable hostel! ”

Excellent downtown location & free transport to ferry terminal

the pak up hostel is one of asia's finest - incredibly powerful air conditioning, high quality bedding, awesome lockers built right into the bed, great shower and laundry facilities, and a popular on-site bar/pub. internet access was incredibly fast, and free. if you purchase your ferry tickets to ko phi phi/ko lanta from the front desk (cheaper than buying at the dock, surprisingly), they'll provide free transport to the pier (a good 5 km away, so not easily walk-able). there is a night market and food stalls next to the river, just a stone's throw from the hostel. i'd wholeheartedly recommend this hostel to any and all travellers - there is absolutely nothing to do in krabi, but the hostel is worth staying the night. even doing a day trip to ko phi phi and staying here would be an option - it's far more comfortable than anything you'll find on the island.

Cleanliness, location, people, rooftop bar

The Pak up hostel is the best hostel I have ever stayed in! It's situated in a lovely area where you are able to go to lots of different places from. The staff are amazing, they are friendly and extremely helpful - whatever you need, they'll help!! The hostel itself has got to be the cleanest hostel I have ever ever stayed in! The dorms are immaculate and so are the shared bathrooms! It really is well looked after and run so well. The rooftop bar is a great place to meet people and they have a live singer every night. They also have free wifi here which was a plus! We are even planning on going back to Krabi just to stay there as it was so nice! A huge thumbs up from me! I loved it. Also great value for money!! Without a doubt.

Great stay!”

Very clean, comfortable bed, helpful staff

Great one night stay! My boyfriend and I stayed at Pak Up after getting in late to Krabi. Found the hostel easily and staff were very helpful during check in, helping us book transport from krabi to koh phi phi for the next morning (very reasonable price-didn't feel over charged). Very clean and comfortable hostel, and the beds were extremely comfy and spacious. We ended up booking another night there on our way back. Wonderful atmosphere for a young traveler- highly recommend.

amazing hostel”

lovely staff and great decoration and rooms

I don't tend to stay in hostels, but as I hadnt been to Krabi before I thought it would be a good idea. Despite the first motorbike taxi man not knowing where the hostel was, the second did, so just make sure you have a map or the address written down. Pak Up staff are amazing and will help you with anything you want, whether it be trips or onward travel, and they do so at very fair prices. The rooms are really nice and large, and the bathrooms were perfect. Would definitely stay here again.

Pak Up Hostel is a very worth to stay hostel for backpackers. I stayed there for 2 nights while solo travelling around Krabi. The staffs are good with english and are very friendly to help you with any information that you need. You could even rent a bike for 150-200baht from the hostel and explore the town.

Best hostel I have ever been to”

Fancy hostel, roof top bar, clean and nice rooms and bathrooms

Pak up hostel is a modern and fancy hostel. I have never been to a better one during my travels through Thailand. They have two bars, the roof top bar and the playground. The dorm rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable and under every bed were big lockers. The staff were always friendly and really helpful. The location were also great. Right next to the pier and the nightmarket. I can highly recommend that hostel especially for backpackers who travel alone because the Pak up hostel is great for socialising and meeting people.

Great Hostel!”

Clean, friendly day staff, great bathrooms

This hostel was a breath of fresh air! There's not much to do in Krabi Town besides massages and bars but its close to the night market and where the buses drop you off. You can also organize lots of tours through the hostel too at a good price, as well as take a cheap bus ride to the beaches from here. I ended up staying longer than expected just because of this hostel.. It is quiet, relaxing, has spacious rooms and very comfortable beds. There is a great rooftop bar with live music and other activities some nights for the party animals, but rooms are quiet. I thoroughly recommend this place!

fun and functional”

Fun environment, super clean, very comfy

We decided to stay at the pak-up hostel in the mixed dorms even though we we're traveling as a couple because it looked so much fun when we stayed elsewhere in the town about a week before. Also they do have more expensive private rooms available. It was also extremely well placed with a cafe we loved kitty-corner to it. It was an incredibly fun environment with at least half the backpackers in the town staying there so we had tons of company. It was also one of our favourite places because not only were the facilities clean and beautiful but also extremely new and upbeat. The bunk-beds themselves were extremely clean and comfy and the blankets were down-filled and extremely comfy. The only thing I could say to watch out for is that while they have extremely handy laundry machines in the hotel that only cost 20baht per wash, that I would only use them if it's actually hot out and you have time to let your clothes air dry, because when i was there it was colder and raining and i tried to use the single dryer they had which was 10b per 10minutes and ended up putting them in for 50min and then leaving them over night to hang and they were still damp. Also we were very disapointed that the one night we were there the rooftop bar was closed, although we could still enjoy the view.

so impressed to stay at Pak-up first time in my backpacker experience. The bedroom and toilet are very clean and comfortable. I met many new friends at Playground Bar inside the hostel.I easily accessed to the way of Krabi people lives because there are the local markets near Pak-up and the pier that I can breathe fresh air after sunset.

Hip place, hopping rooftop bar, Location, comfortable

This is a great place for a solo traveler since the hostel has a great ambiance for people to chat and know each other. It has a hopping rooftop bar (with buckets!) where you can either relax solo, or meet some other travelers. The staff is also very friendly and helpful in booking fieldtrips for you. It also has a good location as it is right by a bus stop to go to Ao Nang beach (beautiful), close to the market walking street, and if you are ever lost in Krabi town everybody knows where this hostel is. If you are traveling solo, this is the hostel to go to. It is comfortable, hip, and well located.

I stayed in Krabi for 3 days & couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. I was visiting Thai friends who came to the roof bar with me at night & were also impressed with the Hostels lay out & facilities. Security was good, plus the lock up luggage draw below the beds were big enough for my suit case, travel bags & computer. I had my own lock but you can get one from the front desk if needed at a small cost. Recommend this Hostel to anyone traveling to Krabi.

Also easy to rent scooters and book tours. The building used to be an elementary school with a playground and was converted into a hostel with renovated rooms, kitchen area, and bar.

Krabi town is a chill place to be, but I loved it. Street food is cheap. If u wanna explore more u gonna have to get a motorbike but the hostel rent for 150bat witch I think is ok. Sometimes they get cheaper transport as well, so keep an eye on it. If u r a solo traveller don’t worry, met loads of people there! A few bars right next to it as well but definitely not a party place to be. There’s a bar in the hostel as well but not so busy. If u r a solo traveller and u looking for a chill place, just talking with people and having a few beers, that’s the spot.
