Hostelz.com's Review
Pak-Up Hostel is a good hostel for solo travelers as well as groups or couples. It is a good place to stop for a night or two on your way to or from the islands and it's a good place to meet people in a town that doesn't have much to offer.

The Location

As Krabi is so small, most hostels or guesthouses are pretty well located, as pretty much everything is within walking distance. Pak-Up Hostel is on a well-circulated street corner, one block away from the night market and less than a ten-minute walk from the city bus stop. The songthaews (share taxis) going to Ao Nang or elsewhere pass by often and stop across the street.
There is an ATM across the street, and several good restaurants close by.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are very clean and very modern. The bunk beds are made of sturdy wood and the mattresses and pillows are comfortable. The ladders to the top bunks are made of wide wood slats, which don't cut into your feet as you go up or down. The top bunks are high enough for the person on the bottom bunks to sit up, even if they are very tall. Each bed has an outlet and an assigned drawer locker under the bottom bunk. They are very large lockers, and we have managed to fit a large and a small backpack inside with room to spare. The padlocks are not provided. There is also a small table and mirror in each room. There is both a fan and air conditioning. The Wi-Fi works well in the rooms.

The bathrooms are very clean and modern as well. There is hot water and the shower cabins are large enough to bring in a change of clothes without getting it wet. There are shelves as well as shampoo and soap dispensers in each. The sinks are in a separate area, and the toilets are also in separate cabins.

Common Spaces

There are several common spaces. There is a computer and hang-out area on the ground floor, as well as a table with benches outside. There are also common areas on the second floor and the rooftop. People use all of these areas, so it is a sociable, friendly hostel. There is a bar on the rooftop and staff are encouraging guests to participate in activities. The first floor has several washers, a dryer, and clotheslines. The prices for the machines are very reasonable.

Summary

Overall, this is a very good hostel in Krabi. It is easy to meet people, and the rooms are far enough from the common areas, so it is not too loud if you're looking for a quiet night.
