Wow....that was my first impression of backhome kl, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and haven't felt this way until I stayed at Glur Hostel in Ao Nang, Krabi. This is place is sparkling new and it has everything. The lockers were huge and you would still have more space for yourself. Bathroom and shower rooms were super clean as well. The only thing I wish glur would offer was a simple breakfast like Backhome. I mean buy a few toasters and some bread would make this place almost amazing. They still offer tea and water. They also provided a fridge as well.

They also had a swimming pool and some spaces for you to hang out. Wow. The person who designed this place must have been a world traveller as he or she seems to know what we need.

Although it's a bit of a walk to the beach, I didn't mind it as I enjoy walking and checking out the stores. I would definitely return here.

I booked in here for 7 days but have extended it by another 4 days - that should tell you something positive about the place.

I should have known this to be true, because when I tried for earlier dates, it was fully booked. In fact, for some of my nights I have to move into another bedroom as my bed is already taken!!

The Pros:

Spotlessly clean - everywhere, including showers, toilets and rooms - all super
Wonderful comfy bed
Privacy and space
Beautifully maintained garden with, wait for it, a fantastic swimming pool!!
Fresh fruit, coffee, tea and drinking water provided every day
A large selection of DVD's - if you wish to watch something of an evening
A wonderful eating and communal area to catch up with fellow travellers
A laundry service
The most helpful and accommodating staff - always there for advice and help

Cons:
Absolutely NOTHING

I think you can get the reason I have extended my stay here, without any further praise!

Room Tip: They are all good - as they are all spotlessly cleaned every day.

5 star hostel in Thailand. Beautiful, cozy and very CLEAN. The kind of place that make you want to stay longer simply to enjoy the hostel. Very pleasant staff. I would go back to Ao Nang just to stay there! Worth every penny!!

I had a fantastic time at GLUR. This was the nicest, cleanest and most cozy hostel I have stayed at and the nicest place over all in Thailand. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms clean! Super friendly staff that helps you out with everything you need. They have a great swimming pool and an excellent lounge areas. In fact there were multiple lounging areas to mingle. I met the most fantastic people! Oh an the breakfast was wonderful!

Stayed for 3 nights but we wished it was for longer! Staff were great booking our onward transfer to patong and a fantastic kayaking tour. Breakfast was delicious and there was free coffee/tea/water in a cool common area. Pool was refreshing and bathrooms clean. Room was a bit dull but it just makes you get out and explore the area! Importantly though the air con worked and was clean. Market right outside was lovely and there was loads of shops/cafés and restaurants on the 15 minute walk to beach.

All in all- brilliant value for money!

what a hostel, i have to say it was stye best hostel all round for me so far and it would def take some beating. I stayed here first for 2 days and then returned after a motorbike accident to recover and it was just the perfect place to recoup. they have thought of everything, from beds with wardrobes, bunks that are secured to the wall so you don't hear or feel the person above or below you. own mirror, small changing area, curtains for privacy, plenty of showers and WC's, swimming pool, hammocks, to lounge area and much much more. the sandwich market it awesome and the staff just great. well done to this amazing hostel! :)
