Good Dream Guesthouse
83 Uttarakit Rd, Krabi T: (075) 622 993
Thoughtfully managed and very popular, Good Dream is a complete budget guesthouse package with an energetic social scene.
Most stay here for the lively atmosphere and central location, but the rooms represent solid backpacker value as well. Each is a bit different from the next, some with balconies and TVs, others minimally furnished and relying on shared hot-water bathrooms. Small groups can settle into a spacious triple with multiple fans or air-con. The place really sets out to accommodate, allowing you to check out several room options before deciding, if they’re available. The ground-floor lounge and restaurant has several communal computers, a bar and tables overlooking the street -- a prime spot to chat up other travellers around some beers and burgers. The personable staff also runs Good Dream 2, which is right down the street and has similarly priced rooms to go with a tasty Mexican restaurant on the ground floor. The owners have put together loads of info on the area, going so far as to provide honest reviews of several local tour companies.

has evolved into a mash-up of funky bars, Western restaurants, old-school markets slinging fiery curries and the same sorts of modest shophouses found in any Thai provincial capital. Somehow these pieces fit into a fun and intriguing puzzle, all set to a backdrop of mangrove-lined rivers, longtail boats, jagged karsts and a busy patch of the Andaman Sea.
