Central with a pool
A plunge pool draped in disco lights and boxing gloves makes Your Hostel stand out from Krabi’s growing pack of dorm options.
With a bright yellow facade in the heart of town, the urban-style hostel materialised out of an old cement shophouse, adding a large purpose-built section out the back for a cafe, bar, billiards table and the pool. Relying on modern hot-water bathrooms, the four- or 10-bed air-con dorms are both mixed gender and each bunk comes with private reading lamp, electrical outlet and locker. Dorms are clean with a fair amount of space, a few windows and polished concrete walls.
Private rooms are also available and while we like the pricier editions with river-view balconies, TVs, firm beds and rain showers in spacious bathrooms, we’d pass on the smaller privates that do not have windows or ensuite bathrooms. The place has a party vibe and the staffer who most recently showed us around was notably friendly and helpful, with a great attitude.
Next door to Your Hostel is Good Dream Guesthouse, an older spot with a dive-bar vibe including its own billiards table and private rooms starting very cheap.
