Privacy, comfort, tours, location, and a pool :) Each dorm bed is set up like a pod with it's own outlet, light, locker, mirror, closet and curtain. A laundry sink and clothes line are located on site but if you prefer a washer is just short walk down the street and is available 24/7. Overall the common area is a great place to meet people whether you are chilling in a hammock or hanging by the pool.

Glur is close to many restaurants and just a 20 minute walk to the beach, make sure you stop by the Reggae Bar on your way by :) There is a night market on the same street as the hostel on the weekends with cheap eats.

Due to the location, which is superb, there are quite a few mosquitos at night.

One gripe, you cannot wear shoes in the rooms or the bathrooms.

To date this has been my favourite hostel.

Room Tip: A room with a pool view was nice :)

Very nice hostel! Beautiful public area in garden style with hammocks and pool. But the best thing are the dormbeds! Could you ever walk into your locker?? ;-) The beds have also curtains which makes the stay more privat during night. Small breakfast is also included and free tea

Stayed for 3 days 2 nights.
Love the design concept of the hostel though didn't spend much time there as my friend and I were mostly outside adventuring Krabi. Equipped with free wifi, what more can we asked for?! Hehe. Would definitely stay here again on our next visit to explore and spend more time in the hostel. Overall, we had a pleasant stay in Glur Hostel and would recommend to others!

Cheers!

Great bed area with plug, light, curtain & personal locker with plenty of space. Good a/c and wifi too. Really good rooms overall. Only negative about the rooms was the terrible pillows - very high, very hard. I couldn't sleep on them and ended up using the blanket provided as a pillow. Good clean toilets and showers too. Nice communal area with free water & tea/coffee. Price was rather high for a hostel at 600 Baht a night. Also location wasn't brilliant - 20 min walk to the centre.

After a month of backpacking, I can honestly say: I wish every hostel would be like Glur!
pool? Awesome hang out area, fruit & water, nice staff, stunning surrounding views, auper modern bathroom, cozy bunkbeds with curtains and son on...

Just perfect! Treat yourself, you wont regret the few dollars more.

I had originally planned to stay for 4 nights but the experience was so good that I had decided to extend one more night and I’m glad that I did. It takes about 15-20 minutes to walk to the beach and there are so many restaurants along the way so that’s a good way to explore the place. Breakfast is available at the Sandwich bar next door and I absolutely loved it. Try the steak and cheese set. The portions are generous and totally worth it. You can’t go wrong on that one!

Since it was my first time in backpacking, I was pretty apprehensive about how my overall experience was going to turn out but I’m so glad that I chose Glur. If you want to book a tour, I would suggest getting it done at the reception and you can save time. Their toilets and bathrooms are well kept and every morning, you can see the efforts put in to tidy up the place. Swimming pool is available for your use, coffee and tea is provided as well at the pantry area. There is a reading corner, television and hammocks for your use if you want to stay in and have sometime for yourself.

I was completely bowled away with the privacy that was provided for each bed. You could actually draw the curtains and that was a huge plus for me! I took a female, 4 bed dormitory and have no complains. I had a fantastic trip and I can’t wait to be back.
Just a lil’ heads up, remember to bring along mosquito repellent because there’s quite a number of them at night. Besides that, you have to stay here and experience for yourself. Cheers to Rick and his team for having an awesome place. You made my trip more memorable. :-)

Room Tip: Remember to bring along mosquito repellent because there’s quite a number of them at night.

Stayed in a private room, bunk beds were comfortable, tv, dvd player, huge bathroom very modern and clean. Nice quirky hostel, swimming pool was great, in a garden, kitchen, communal area, free tea and coffee, water and fruit. Quiet location on a little side road, 15 minute walk to beach. Very nice but I think it is too expensive for the private room. Walls are thin so could hear next doors baby!
