Hostel has well made beds with lights and plugs, showers and toilets are ok, washing machine is useful and the free bbq good. The bars prices outside of happy hour are pretty high but overall its a good fun hostel. I would recommend Ao Nang for the location though as it has a beach and is closer to Railey.

The place is far from much famous railay and Aonang beaches but the pier is right in front the hostel to reach any of those in quick time. Dorms are clean, washrooms are hygienic and the common areas are well maintained. There are people from all over the world staying here (literally) and we did make some good friends. The... More

We loved the hotel here. The vibe was awesome and the crowd was cool. Very clean and tidy, even the share bathrooms were very nice. The downsides were the wifi and the bed. You couldn't get proper signal in your room and as a travellers you really need it to book and plan, but if you went outside it was... More

Good location, night market is right down the street. Good vibes, easy to meet new friends. Buses to Ko Lanta pick up here, all you have to do is purchase bus tickets from Pak-up front desk and be there on time. There's a nice massage place right next door. And a nice eatery with very yummy fruitshake.

Hostel was ideal stopover between Bangkok and Phi Phi. Clean rooms and decent showers. Cheap bar at back of hostel and free BBQ, good way to meet others if going solo.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once you come to Pak Up, you will never want to pak up.' If you are looking for a top notch party hostel within accessible distance to all of Krabis' famous attractions while paying a budget price then you are at the right place! At Pak Up, we work hard to ensure every detail is right and the place is spotlessly clean, beds are comfy while providing all the best nightlife Krabi Town has to offer within our safe and secure premises. Pak Up management strives to go from strength to strength, keeping up with all the new global trends in the world of properties and budget travel. When you arrive, you will notice this is nothing like the run of the mill property you will typically find in SE Asia. As a former school, the property is themed accordingly room by room and is in a loft style oversized setting. All our rooms are set to the same standard, with international plugs, reading lights, under-bed lockers, bed shelves, towel rails and 3.5 ft beds. During the day you will be able to either take advantage of the many tours available at our reception desk or just chill out on one of the many terraces dotted all over the property. Our tour desk offers a seamless way to see everything in Krabi at a reasonable price and you will never be left stranded anywhere. Our staff are trained to make sure you avoid stress. We have free wifi throughout the hostel, no curfew and a 24 hour reception to keep things practical for our guests. Notably and extremely rare for a hostel in Thailand, we have official registration which means we have passed all national hotel safety standards. Playground, as the name suggests, is a place for big kids like us to socialise, drink, play, and generally acquire great memories along with great friends from day one. The staff will strive to offer the very best in hostel entertainment with great deals on whenever you care to visit our bars. We have a weekly schedule posted in the lobby with daily activities and weekly competitions. These are usually competitive and involve a lot of drinking! ... more   less
