After opening in 2012, Pak-Up has swiftly become a well-known landmark with a happening scene.

Photo of Pak-Up Hostel
It occupies an impossible-to-miss four-storey building with colourful glass windows at the heart of the traveller area. Available in mixed or women-only, the four-, eight- or 10-bed dorms are simple but spacious, with air-con, high ceilings and decent mattresses on sleek wooden bunks, each with a reading lamp, electrical outlet and large drawer-style locker space right below the beds. Huge polished concrete shared bathrooms are clean and equipped with hot water and rain showers in addition to standard moveable showerheads. There are also two air-con private rooms, though you’ll find better value for a private at many nearby guesthouses. You can feel secure thanks to security cameras in the halls and key-card entrances. Common spaces include a ground-floor lounge with LCD TV, rooftop terrace/bar and open-air chill spot with a billiards table. The associated Playground Nightclub and an air-con coffee shop are part of the same building. The place is large enough that you can privately relax while taking advantage of the free WiFi, but also lively enough to easily meet other travellers. While not overly friendly, the polite staff runs a tight ship and seems to really care about their guests. They rent out bicycles and motorbikes and provide a range of tour and onward transport bookings, with many of the minibuses and the Lomprayah bus stopping right out front.
