“Best hostel I've been to!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

We stayed for 2 nights. The beds were extremely comfortable, loads of locker space (enough to fit a large rucksack/suitcase with ease) and with your own light and Plug by each bed.

The staff are phenomenal. Really helpful and speak good English which always helps.

Overall an amazing brand new, funky, fun, helpful and DIRT CHEAP hostel!!

You can right away see it's one of those hostels that has had some thought put into it. The small details like having a plug and light on each bed, good lockers, etc. make all the difference. Aside from that great beds, great showers and great staff.

Very clean rooms. Nice bed set up. Clean sheets and towel. Luggage drawer. Free wifi that actually works. BEST SHOWERS. Nothing bad to say at all. Met some very nice people there as well, but that obviously is hit or miss. If you are in Krabi looking for a hostel, this is it. Best hostel I have ever stayed at. Booked my mini bus to penang as well.

Title says it all really.

The beds are very comfortable, every bed has it's own light and electricity socket, the wifi is very fast and free and the staff are friendly and helpful.

It's a little bit more expensive than some of the other places but you get what you pay for.

Strongly recommended.

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.

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
