Good value for money”

I stayed here back when Covid-19 first started messing up the tourism in the area so my review might not be representative of Pop-In at its full glory. The place is quiet, clean and modern. Bathrooms are shared but they are some of the vest I have seen in Thailand. The location is good. 7 eleven, Tesco, restaurants, the beach, laundry, Makro, pubs and nightclubs are all within walking distance. The hostel itself has a very small communal area which closes at 10pm and the aircon is turned off during the day regardless of whether or not you have left the room. The matresses are thin and uncomforatable to sit on for long periods. There is also no communal kitchen so food has to be bought and eaten outside, which is expensive in Ao Nang. If you don't know the area and you are wondering whether here or Krabi is better for you, then here is better. Krabi is more residential and Ao Nang is the tourist place that you need to be at. The staff were ok. Maybe it's just me but I felt that they viewed me as an inconvenience. I wasn't greeted well and I felt as though I was interrupting just to ask a question. When the all accommodation in the province  was ordered to shut as a measure against the spread of Covid-19, we were notified by a note on the wall. There was little effort to spread the message or help with onward travel. But this was an extraordinary time so maybe the stress of the situation affected how they treated everyone. Overall, I would stay here again. It was clean, modern, had great showers and was centrally located. The price was the best at the time and if it is a good deal again it would be a good place to base yourself for a couple of days.

I stayed for two nights during weekend. I do highly recommended Pop In Hostel because it was nice place to stay at worth price. Room and toilet was clean, accessible to all transportation and shops. New hostel, helpful and friendly staff. It take 15min walk to Ao nang Beach, but you will not feel far, because a lot of shops, restaurants (MCD) along the way. It was nice staying in Pop in Hostel. Sure will come back :)

Pop-in hostel is located very strategically in the Aonang district. You can find plenty of bars, coffee shops, seafood restaurants, convenient stores and street food around this hostel. I enjoyed my stay so much, everything is provided as mentioned and the room was spacious. Not forgetting to mention that you can meet many backpackers and chat all night at the hostel lobby.

So this hostel was definitely up there in one of my favourites... initianally booked for 2 night but stayed 7. Right so I will start with the beds.... super comfy with a curtain and you even get a quilt which is a nice luxury in hostels!!! Next comment is I can't express how wonderful the staff are, they are so helpful and I feel like I became part of the pop in family in my stay... they remembered my name and often had me involved in anything they were doing which was super nice. Finally the free BBQ if you eat chicken is amazing and the cocktails are really good but even better in happy hour at the price. At the Ed of the day I could not recommend this hostel enough. You should stay here!!!

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. This hostel is situated near Ao nang beach and is a very convenient place to stay and explore all that Krabi has to offer. Hot shower was adequate, bed and quilt was comfortable, wifi was fast. The only issue is that the aircond is switched off in the afternoon and you can't use it from 12-5pm

Good hostel that could be great w/ minor improvement ”

Comfortable beds, though a bit cramped in the room and an improvement would be to put curtains between beds, not just sides of bed, as you can see person right in front of you as beds face each other. Good location that is a 10 minute walk to Ao Nang beach, quiet spot but close to action if you want it. The staff at night friendly and helpful, but the morning staff was sometimes curt and not keen on giving good information. We booked transportation through them and it was a mess and they were not professional about it. Nice common area to hang out in and sidewalk seating/bar. Overall, I liked it and think with a few improvements it could be a great hostel.

I traveled most of the Thailand and i stayed a variety of hostels during my journey, but this hostel is the best hostel i've ever seen in Thailand. Clean, cozy, comfortable and social... Stuff is very lovely. Location is very good. It is like 3 min. away from the ao nang if you use motorbike. I would definitely recommend this hostel!

Awesome stay at Pop-in. Met lots of other travelers on the comfy couches and at the bar. Hostel was cleaned very well every day. Showers where nice as where the rooms. Air con worked great, it was unfortunate that they turedn it off from 12-5. Would have been nice for the days I needed to cool off. The staff where super friendly, always willing to help arrange things. Bar outside is fun at night with beer pong and other games, even with a good crowd you could not hear any noise in the room. 10 min walk to the beach.

Good staff and bright spacious rooms”

I have tried and seen the different room types in different occasions. The private rooms are really spacious and clean. The dorm rooms also are spacious and very bright. There is a common area that is not as sociable as other hostels social areas, but you can meet some people (and can easily connect to other travelers on the trips organized by Pop In). On a screen in the bar area they show videos of pop in pub crawl parties which I found too cringy, but I am in my late 20s and also must say that I didn‘t perceive the hostel as party focused ;)

Had an awesome stay in Pop-In Hostel for 9nights”

Really enjoy my stay here as the staff are really friendly especially Kat and Tam. They’re extremely helpful and will ensure that everything was well explained before check in. I am thankful that I managed to get an early check-in. Cleanliness is really good and location is great. It’s right Infront of a mosque but I have no issues at all. It’s totally fine. Street food and restaurants are everywhere so there’s no problem w getting food. Also, it’s away from the main crowded Aonang street, it’s more quiet and you can really get some quality rest. However, there’s one thing that will need to be improved, the couch at the common space are really worn out and a lil smelly, hopefully it gets to replace w a new set.

Pop in is for sure one of the better hostels in which we have stayed. Very clean, free bbqs in the evenings and activities like tours and beer pong tournaments. Friendly staff, willing to help with everything. Location is approx 15 minutes walk from the beach but we thought this was fine. Furthermore, everyone has a big locker for their backpack and daypack in one. All in all great hostel!

Close to Ao Nang beach ”

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights. It is about a 15-minute walk to Ao Nang beach, along the main road lined with restaurants, convenience stores, and clothes shops. There is a great cafe called Buzz across the road, and the best restaurants we found were just off the main strip. The ticket office for boats to Railay and nearby islands is right at the bottom of the road when you reach the beach, so the hostel is really conveniently located for that. They offer tours etc., but we didn’t take advantage of them. Room was clean with air con, and there is free tea and coffee on the 2nd floor. We left some laundry behind when we checked out, and the staff have been really helpful in having it sent on for us to collect at our next destination.

Good to meet people without pressure”

Being a 30 yrs old solo traveler, I hesitated to book this hostel since I was not into the idea of a hardcore party hostel, but I still wanted to meet people. This worked out well in this hostel. Both the private rooms and the dorms are clean, bright and nice. Everything is a little worn down (standard for hostels I guess) but not old and in a good condition. You can meet in the evenings at the free BBQ (never had it but saw that they even got vegetarian options available. Just a snack but good to have a beer and chat with people) or even better at their day trips which have okay group sizes (ask if you are not sure, staff speaks English). They can arrange everything for you like transfers and trips for okay prices (didn't hear about other hostels/agencies being cheaper).

This place is great”

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. It was about 3 months old when I got there in January 2017. The upsides: - Nice chill out area - clean and decent toilets and showers - 2 Free BBQ Skewers per day which means people stick around if you want to meet anyone - There is a daily tour to somewhere (did not try but appreciate that it was available) - The beds have a light, outlet, shelf and curtain - They rent out scooters - Overall well organised and smoothly running Downsides - The Mosque opposite to the Hostel might wake you up in the middle of the night - Some of the staff is fairly new so looks like some might need more training (My experience with Martim was not great, he is very distracted, makes you wait endlessly and doesn't know about certain rules nor informs himself when I told him other staff told me other things than he did, so I hope he gets some more training) - If you have the top bed of the bunks and you're not very tall like me, the climb seems rather dangerous. Overall had a great experience and would definitely come back if I go to Krabi again.

Very nice hostel with perfect service ”

The hostel itself is very nice, with cool comfortable beds (just a/c turns itself off at morning, but room temperature still okay by waking up), there is plenty of good showers and toilets available for use. Staff is very caring and able, you can book easily almost everything through them and they even offer own tours and rental scooter. There are also several places to relax and you can buy drinks (or have some free BBQ) from the front. Good and cheap breakfast is just on the opposite street from the hostel Only negative for me was the distance from the hostel to the beach (and longboat transit)
