Tourism in Thailand is growing year upon year, we all know that and with over 30 million tourists expected to grace 2017 in total, things aren’t slowing down. What happens when tourism grows, investment grows too. Over the past few years or so it’s been notable that the hostel trend has certainly moved up a gear. There is so much competition nowadays, that searching via Booking or Hostelworld, you have a plethora of choices.
Yet, having a substantial and long last reputation is key to any successful hostel in Thailand. If a hostel has got it right from the start, word of mouth make a big difference. Now, added into the social media aspect and exposure, keeping high standards is a credit to hostel owners and operators.
As you may know already, Pak Up Hostel is in the top 3 of best hostels in Asia, as voted by Hostelworld. Year after year, the dedication Pak Up has provided to keep up to date with travel trends is all to see. Let’s break it down to why Pak Up is one of the best hostels in Thailand.
Best and Luxury Facilities
One of Pak Up’s unique selling points is that provides some of the best facilities possible for a hostel. Sometimes you think hostels might be a little shoddy and thrown together, but Pak Up really prides itself in five-star facilities. With rainforest showers, comfy beds, charge points, lockers, perfect air condition, free WIFI and a social scene, you’d think you were in a hotel staying at Pak Up. Hand on heart, Pak Up is a top rated choice in Krabi Town and arguably one of, if not THE best facilitated hostel in the whole of Thailand.
Constant Low Prices
Enjoying the high standards of Pak Up’s facilities, you’d be not wrong to think that you’d have a high cost to pay. Well, you thought wrong! The prices at Pak Up are very affordable, especially for western travellers. You can pay as little as 250 baht for a dorm bed here which is incredibly low given the luxury you’ll be given.
At the centre of Krabi Town, Pak-Up Hostel get’s the location almost perfect. If Krabi Town was to revolve around one spot, Pak Up own it. Pak Up is only a minutes walk from Chaofa Pier and a short 15 minute drive from Krabi Airport, 20 minutes from the white sands of Railay Beach and also 20 minutes from the buzzing resort town of Ao Nang.
More Than Just A Hostel
Pak Up doesn’t just supply amazing hostel facilities; it has more to it than that. If you want to go on tour with Pak Up, you can, maybe over to Phi Phi Islands or Hong Island? If you want to book transport to the airport or boat trips Pak Up do this too. As part of the Andaman Group, they are also partners with Ibiza Pool Party Phi Phi, Balcony Party Hostel and Pop In Hostel.
Fantastic Customer Service
Behind every good man is a good woman, and behind every good hostel is even better customer service! At Pak Up, they get you and what you want. You have local staff that knows Krabi and the surrounding places to visit like the back of their hands, so don’t be afraid to ask.
Many hostels in Southeast Asia are now being owned and ran by foreign investors, but at Pak Up the hostel is ran by Thai’s. This gives a good impression, because you know there is a passion with the service and a genuine want to help travellers.
