The newish 88 Hostel occupies a four-storey modern building that’s very similar to the neighbouring hotels, but a bright red facade makes it stand out.

It’s a fine option if you’re after a spotless air-con dorm and don’t like the buzz of the main drag. Sterile dorm rooms are long and narrow, with thin mattresses and fluffy pillows on steel bunks lined up lengthwise on either side, shiny white tile floors in between and sliding glass doors opening on to balconies at the end. Each bunk has a small reading lamp and electrical outlet, and there are enough shared hot-water bathrooms to go around. All guests get their own small locker. The dorms have a dozen beds each and rarely seemed to be fully. This is also the only hostel around that offers a male-only room in addition to the female-only and mixed varieties. The place has a comfortable atmosphere with an upbeat staff, free WiFi that can be used on shared laptops and lounges with sofas next to a flatscreen TV and DVD player. The vibe is more “let’s relax and chat” rather than “let’s pound beers and rage all night.” Ignore the absurdly expensive rates listed on the hostel’s website and ask for a discount in low season. Another nearby hostel option is the iKrabi, a short walk up Khlong Hang Road, which is perhaps preferable if you’re the less social type. It’s a little pricier but has the option of renting one room with only two bunks.
