Pak up is clean, comfortable and has a free BBQ every night. Couldn't look for more in a hostel! There's a bar that's pretty much part of the hostel which is good fun. It has pool, beer pong etc and the music isn't load enough to bother you in your dorm.

A must stay if looking at hostels in the Krabi area. Large spacious rooms with comfy bunk beds and good safe storage units under bottom bed. A/C and fans in all room with Wifi. Lounge/chill out room out the front. Playground area out the back with pool table and games area. Free BBQ every night but wouldn't recommend eating it....

Clean and functional as well as having fun design features. Amazing bathrooms and big comfortable beds - it was always very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Bar is also good fun and they...

Easily my favorite hostel in Thailand. They have the playground bar with tons of activities every night. The staff is amazing and it's a very nice room with very comfy beds. I will definitely be back. While you are here, definitely check out the market and night market down the street. Rai Lay beach and Ao Nang only 10-15 minutes...

I have stayed at Pak Up multiple times now. Every single time has been amazing. I traveled around Europe and SE Asia for 9 months and I can confidently say this is one of my favorite hostels I've ever stayed at. The atmosphere is great and the staff is amazing. On my most recent trip, I left my wallet in...

This is the perfect hostel for Krabi town. It's right in the middle of everything. Since there's not much to do here this hostel has its own fun. They have a huge outback bar where they have a free BBQ you get two chicken skewers which were delicious. Air con dorms are very clean and cold along with the toilets...

If you're going south in Thailand to explore the islands but need to stop off somewhere in between then Krabi town is a pretty good place to do so. Pak Up Hostel was a fantastic experience for someone that has never travelled like that before. Everywhere was clean and safe, staff were lovely and the nightlife atmosphere in their bar...

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
