Great hostel...staff okay. ”
Wicked hostel in Krabi. Super social and fun but u can have a chill time if ur just wanting to do tours. Rooms and bathrooms are excellent! My only problem was w the staff. They come into the rooms super loud at all times of the day including the morning. And I had laundry go missing. It was brand new and expensive. Of course when asked they werent able to find it. It happens when traveling, i know. But it just leaves a bad impression if u cant trust people w some clothes even.
Stayed here 3 separate times. It is clean, the dorm rooms are comfortable with excellent AC and really big sliding drawer lockers! The bathrooms are nice and the showers have really good pressure. Staff was really helpful and the free kebabs are a nice touch, however the music in the bar area is quite loud making it difficult to have conversations while eating
For one night, sure.”
It had all kind of things in offer, roof top, bar, excellent lockers, clean showers and bathroom. Stayed only for one night because wanted to get to islands and needed place for one night. But if I would be younger backpacker this would be really good place!
One of my favorites hostels during my trip. Super cool vibe, the staff was really nice and good English. They have a huge laundry room and the bathrooms were big and clean as well. I really recommend it.
Amazing stopover in Krabi”
Was blown away by this hostels facilities, hands down the best hostel in terms of facilities & convenience. Didn’t spend much time in Krabi so was only here 2 nights but if you need a stop over hostel to get stuff done like laundry then definitely check this place out.
Very decent hostel!”
Nice property overall with a school theme. Big lockers and nice AC. Showers have great water pressure! Nice beds and also a gym at the top floor! Possibly the only downside was they were pretty aggressive about getting people signed up for the bar crawl.
best hostel I've had”
➕ location is great (but it's krabi, so not so much happening around) family mart/foods/night market nearby lots of activities with affordable price (joined the Ao Nang pub crawl, it was great) facilities are well maintained staffs are helpful and friendly ➖ can't really complain about anything, maybe the price is not the cheapest though.
Best hostel in Krabi downtown ”
I used to stayed there 7 years ago and I decided to visit pakup hostel again last week and I found that they still maintain their quality and service. The hostel was clean and located in a good place which you can walk to the night market, the river and park. The price per night was really cheap and value for money you pay.
I only stayed here for one night but it was such a modern and cool place! Super clean and a very nice vibe, would’ve definitely enjoyed staying another night here as the bar downstairs is really cool and they had a good round of beer pong games
Not nearly as good as the reviews suggest ”
Stayed two nights and after reading all the good reviews and being excited to stay here I was very disappointed. The room was ok. The lockers were very big which was good and the bed had a curtain. The sheets had some stains in them and there was sand in my bed. Also the wooden parts of the bed were full of sand. It could've been cleaner. The toilets and showers especially. What shocked me the most was the unfriendly staff. Everything you asked was answered very fast and vague meanwhile working with something else on the computer. Didn't seem like they care a lot. I understand that every traveler asking the same questions can be annoying but that's the reason they're there.. I also got mixed information about transportation from two different members of the staff. I was told there is a shuttle at 8am the night before and in the morning I was told there is no such thing as shuttle at 8am. This caused extra stress in the morning of my departure and again the staff didn't seem to care.
Overrated by a lot”
This place is a machine so the efficiency is good. The sheets are old, the rooms are not attractive. The bathrooms are huge at the end of a long hall on each floor. The gym is a joke, honestly. Not a fan. Ick!
It’s everything you want in a hostel ”
From the time we arrived this place has delivered to our expectations. The staff was friendly and same with the other packers. There’s tones of necessities around like a 7 Eleven, coffee shop and night market is a must. The pier is close by for day trip excursions. They also have a bar for all the packers to mingle. Very strong wifi to top it off.
Lovely and Nice Hostel in Krabi ”
I love this place. Lovely and Nice place to stay in town , Bed very good and Location is supper
Friendly, clean, quiet, great location”
This hostel was great, it was really clean, comfy beds with curtains and a light inside. Spacious dorms and a nice social space in reception. Breakfast offered was cornflakes and nice enough but not huge, however the staff are extremely friendly and can help you with any queries. Great location near all the main bits of Krabi and right near the ferry to Railey. All in all a great stay.
Perfect for an overnight stopover: stayed twice, both on the way to and from the islands. Comfortable, clean, great showers, good wifi and staff are great at organising transport and answering any questions you have. Walking distance to both night food markets which are good for a cheap and filling meal. Only negative I have is the breakfast is VERY basic - just serve yourself cornflakes which isn't enough to fill you up.
One Night Stay”
Used this hostel for one night prior to my flight to Laos. Arrived late afternoon and departed early morning. The hostel rooms were clean and well organized with spacious lockers for your belongings. You need to provide your own lock. Organized a taxi for early morning drive to airport.
Good fun place ”
Beds are well made and there is storage space underneath. They havevsocial spaces and a bar with fun evenings although prices are expensive after happy hour ends. Free bbq good is pretty good and they had a computer to use. Location is not great, it is near the bus and boat stops but Ao Nang is better as it has a beach and is closer to Railey.
Fun party evenings, well made beds and ok toilets. The bar gets expensive after happy hour. Washing machines are usefil if you have a lot to wash. You can get a Songthaw from right outside or a boat from nearby the boat people are annoying though. I got to use the computer quite a bit as well.
Really great backpackers!”
Pak Up is one of the best hostels I stayed in in the South of Thailand. It has very good vibes, it has good location and in general is very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again. However, the excursions and tickets at the reception are highly overpriced so I wouldn't recommend to book your activities through the hostel.
