Krabi: Pak Up Hostel Review


If you are looking to spend a few nights in Krabi, you must consider staying at Pak Up Hostel. The hostel is located in the center of Krabi Town, within walking to most of the attractions such as the night markets and the town boat terminal.

Almost everything at the hostel is impeccable. From the stylish reception area to the plush beds, it is hard to find fault with this establishment. My favorite feature of the hostel would have to be its huge and very comfortable super-single beds. The bed, pillow and plush comforters are akin to those found in more expensive hotels and most importantly very comfortable.

All the rooms were very clean, as they were cleaned daily, and air conditioned. The air conditioning worked really well, which is absolutely blissful for a good night’s rest or when you want to sleep in on a hot afternoon.

The only downside to this hostel is that it is located about a 20-minutes away by car from Ao-nang beach. Nevertheless there are plenty of public mini buses that can get you there all day long for just around THB50 one way (I can’t remember the exact fee, but its around that range).
