“It was great 3 years ago.”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

I came back to Pak Up after 1st stay was 3 years ago.
The maintainance of dorms bed are not well taken care off.
The woods are flaking.
The storage space are great under beds, huge enough to fit 2 rucksacks.

Just get them sweep beneath atleast once a week.
The dirt was soo thick.

Was in Geography Room, Level 3.

Dorm doors is making squicky noices everytime it open & closes.

My 1st stay was perfect, it's below expectation for this come back.

Great infrastructure!! Really comfortable, with large beds and lockers, clean, with helpful staff, provides pretty much all you need (information, tours, transport, etc), close to good places to eat and affordable. Definitely of the best hostels I've stayed.

Great hostel. Really spacious. Great dorms wth comfy beds (the top beds are quite high though), huge lockers, great and many showers, one rooftop bar with live music & bar + another bar downstairs with pool table & games organised almost every night. Its the place to be, in fact all backpackers staying at other hostels come here at night for drinks nd fun.
Whatever you want to do or see in the area or wherever you want to go, they'll organize it for you. You can book tours, transportation, activities. You can have your laundry done and they'll send ur mail for you.
We liked it so much that even though we pretty much exhausted the things to do in the area, we will stay there again if we go back to Thailand.
Tip : Dorms on the 2nd floor are nicer thn the ones on 3rd floor.

My friend and I stayed here in May 2014, this was the first hostel we stayed in and choose the private room, the room is Very basic, bed and space to put your backpack but no complaints!
There is a big laundry area to Hang washing and also à tumble dryer which is handy.
The toilet and shower area is a good size, shampoo and body wash provided, the only thing u need to watch out for is the birds that sit on the beams by the roof, they tend to go to thé toilet there too sometimes but really not a big issue.The area was cleaned during the day.
Each night there is something going on, either in thé bar in thé garden or rooftop, this is the best part of the hostel, good time to meet people and have à laugh.
Would stay here again if i visites the area but would probably choose a dormitory to meet more people.

Great lockers, great beds, great service for trips, laundry available. Best hostel this side of the planet.
I definitely recommend this place as a base camp for traveling around the Krabi area. There are many tours available. You can just chill at the night market down the street for dinner after a long day of tours.

Well situated near restaurants, shops, bars, laundrettes, massage and spas, the mangroves, airport, this is a great, fun hostel with plenty of loungy space inside and out, day and night. Coin operated internet available, although cheaper in nearby internet cafes. Bar on roof gets pretty rowdy some nights. Transport and trips can be booked from reception. Rooms are spacious and clean, with plenty of hot and cold water shower cubicles in communal single sex bathrooms and quirky central “troughs” with taps and mirrors. Great unique decor, good atmosphere, well priced, and good amenities. Would recommend.

Awesome place to stay in Krabi. Very sociable place, organised staff, clean rooms and good bathroom facilities. Huge lockable trunks under each bunk bed. Fan and AC in rooms - too cold sometimes! Live band is great on rooftop bar but the party continues nightly until about 5/6am. Still managed a good nights sleep and for 220 baht a night this is super value.
