K Guesthouse

An oldie but a goodie

What we say: 3.5 stars

Occupying a long two-storey wooden house slightly removed from the action on Chao Fah Road, the K is a long-running backpacker haunt. Rooms come in a few styles, the best being second-floor fan editions with dark-wood walls, high ceilings, very firm beds, private hot-water bathrooms and bamboo furniture on balconies overlooking the street. Air-con rooms are located downstairs and are comfortable enough but less inviting than the upper-floor rooms and not the best value compared to other nearby choices, like PN or Ban To. Tiny fan rooms with reasonably well-kept shared cold-water bathrooms are tucked into the back of the building and will get the job done for those on a tight budget. If going that route, ask for a room with a window: they're the same price as those without. Free WiFi is slow and only works in the ground-floor cafe with a few tables next to the reception desk. Other disadvantages include thin walls and only one electrical outlet in most rooms. The quiet owner is a veteran of the Krabi tourism scene. Though not a modern choice by any stretch, K remains a solid option for those who prefer an old-style guesthouse.
