This Hostel is one of the best i have been in southern thailand! The hostel is modern and well kept despite its size, along with the beds which are a dream to sleep on. They also have bar downstairs which can get quite lively which makes it good for socialising, and also have a free BBQ where you will get...

The rooms were all great, individual lockers and comfortable beds. location was great, right next to the street food market, and a row of shops selling everything you'd want. Good chill out area in the front to meet other travelers, and...

Pak up hostel was super nice and very clean. The staff were all helpful and friendly and it felt very safe and comfortable. The only issue we had was with the air conditioning at night, the room would sometimes get very hot. Other than that our stay was very pleasant. The hostel bar is fun, they organize drinking games and...

It's a nice enough hostel, it's clean, good facilities. But it's 390baht and you can easily get as good accommodation for 200-250 baht elsewhere. It's nice that the price includes two free BBQ skewers, but it really feels like a plan to get you into their Playground Bar where drinks are expensive-at happy hour they're 100 baht (big Chang), outside...

Overall the hostel is pretty good. Comfy beds and adequate showers/toilets. The laundry and clothes line was an added bonus. But the staff seem less than interested. Vague with answering any questions and didn't engage at all apart from one lad who was on in the evenings. The place was pretty dead but there was a full moon party on...

This is a great hostel!!! This was my second stay here in Feb 2017. The atmosphere is great in this hostel - so easy to make friends at the bar. They always have some kind of games/competitions going on; beer pong, flip cup, etc. They also give everyone 2 pieces of BBQ for free a night which is great as...

Myself and two other friends stayed here. The location was close to enough restaurants and 5 minutes from night market. The reception were very knowledgeable about activities never had difficulty to find things to do. The bbq is pretty good and free in the bar. If in Krabi id definetly return again.

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
