Shoestring budget travellers should be satisfied with Krabi City Dorm’s bare-bones accommodation and welcoming staff.

Photo of Krabi City Dorm
The cement shophouse has a very small common area on the open-fronted ground floor, with stairs leading up to a handful of rooms on either side of the narrow halls. Small fan dorm rooms with three or four firm single beds (no bunks) and shared lights/outlets can be rented by groups of travellers or by the bed. Both floors have one single-person bathroom with hot water that’s shared between guests. Also relying on the shared bathrooms are a few basic private fan rooms with windows that face the hall, or, for an extra 100 baht, overlook the street. Don’t expect much in the way of decor in these rooms -- small tables are the only furnishings and the walls are blank white, but they are well kept and adequate for the super-low rates. Tucked onto Soi Ruamjit, the quiet location puts you around the corner from both Maharaj and Chao Fah roads. If you want a larger selection of cheap private rooms, also with shared bathrooms but some with air-con, head next door to the quirky Area 51 Guest House.
