Nice clean place to stay.”
(-) The fan room can get a bit stuffy as there's only one window which doesn't let much air through. We wanted to book another night but the lady at reception said all the fan rooms were booked out and there were only expensive rooms available. So we just went online and booked the cheaper fan room again. That was a bit weird. The staff were very nice other than trying to up sell us on the room. (+) Great place to stay though. The showers were very nice and the shared bathrooms were very clean. There was a guard at night on the front gate which was good. There was a cafe in the hostel where you could sit and relax in.

Lovely place - great location”
The Chanchalay was one of the best accommodations we had during our 5 weeks trip! We loved the cozy, light design of the place. We had a double room with private bathroom and fan. Other than in many places the rooms are spacious and offer plenty of space to hang and store your stuff, which is not all too common for accommodations in that price range. Also we enjoyed a very comfortable bed after many hard mattresses at other places - finally a good relaxed night rest without backpain :-) A lovely plus is the open air shower in a sweetly designed bathroom. Usually we found those only at beach bungalows and were happily surprised to find such an open air space in a town guesthouse. The staff was very friendly and helpful at any time and we felt very welcome. Also we enjoyed the location as the Chanchalay is perfectly situated just a few walking minutes from everything you need - markets, shops, cafés, bars, restaurants, river and pier. Next Krabi visit - Chanchalay again!

They don't seem to care.”
I got in late and the woman who checked me in, despite my having asked in advance for help booking a minivan the next morning (and having readily gotten that help elsewhere), truly did not seem to give a damn whether I figured it out or not--she just told me to walk down the street and find an agency. That did not work, and not-fun experiences ensued. There were cute aspects to the room but the sewagey bathroom smell was also quite difficult. I was hoping for a retreat, but I would not come back here.

Adorable ”
This is such a lovely hostel. The decor is very much a Greek beachy vibe with friendly staff and clean rooms. The area is quite quiet but it’s in walking distance from the nigh market (2 mins away) and the walking market (5 mins away). The only thing I would say is that it can be a bit loud as it is by the street but that can’t be helped. I would definitely stay here again!

The stay was quiet comfortable. The rooms are well kept and must admit that it deserves high rating as the rooms were really well kept. Best part which our family felt was the Open bathroom concept which was surprisingly different from normal ones. Thanks Agoda.

Super nice and amazing value”
The decor and quality of this place was just great. Super clean and comfortable that we ended up booking at least 3 more nights there. The neighboring building on the left had great motorbikes to rent for a good price and tours to book. The location was very central to street markets, shops, and food that were walking distance. Everyone from Krabi was so friendly and welcoming. We would definitely come back here!

Desperate times call for desperate measures”
So, where to begin. Firstly, I’d like to question the 8.9 rating this hostel displays in the lobby. The internet is a beautiful thing, which offers us many choices in today’s world. After reading the scoring of this location, and seeing the cheap price we chose to stay. God, what a mistake! Where to begin? The rooms were small and boxy, after paying for a room with A/C we were then told the unit was broken - and instead we were given a fan. Staff tried to sell us rip off ferry tickets, and continued to accuse us of lying when told that we had been offered the same ferry for 300 less. DONT TAKE TICKETS HERE, instead find a street stall (this was much cheaper). The walls of the room were covered in dirt stains that are incredibly easy to wipe off, as well as having a small empire of god knows what bug swarming in the corner of the room. It was that hot without A/C that we saw other visitors with their fan lodged in the door blowing the cool air in. This wouldn’t be a problem, however the ‘security guard’ working the night shift obviously had better things to do with his time and wasn’t to be seen at all on the second night. Not at all safe since all that separates the rooms and the street is an unlocked gate. Breakfast looked alright, but I didn’t chancing it as this also looked alright before we arrived. Enjoy waking up sweatier than you fell asleep. Don’t go unless you’re BROKE.

We had some doubts as we saw that the toilet was shared, but it was honestly one of the cleanest and better toilets we'd been in all our trip in Thailand. (we went in low season, don't know how it would be in high). The beds are comfy and clean.
