We had a private room for two with balcony and it was clean and comfy. One night. Very good. The location is good, on Ao Nang beach (if you like this area, which we did not because over touristic) and we thought it was quiet. BUT it's a pity that the people working there are thieves and not honest. First,...

We(my wife and me) had a short 3 night trip to Krabi. We wanted to stay close to the beach and at a budget place so that we dont spend much on accomodation and travel. We got to know Zabava through tripadvisor. checked reviews on multiple sites and finally booked through Agoda. Property: Its like a hostel set up but...

Booked this hotel for its location, close to everything but not noisy. We were dubious when we arrive and saw an Irish pub next door but it was fine as our room was actually a few doors away anyway. We were in the penthouse which had a balcony and you could just about see the beach between the buildings, which...

Central location set back from the street just across from the beach lies the guesthouse split across two buildings separated by a massage parlour and an Irish pub. Grey, gloomy, concrete corridors led to our room up some stairs at the back of the second building. Tiny, gloomy room despite having two windows and a third in the toilet. Worst...

Location is perfect, on Ao Nang beach, in the centre of all the bars and restaurants, however as it's set back behind the Main Street by a 30 second walk you can't hear a sound. Room is clean, small and bed is extremely comfortable, bathroom could do with some modernising but for what you pay it's well worth it. We...

We, a family of four, spent two nights at Zabava Guest House. At 4200 THB per night (around 95 GBP or 110 EUR) without breakfast, this turned out to be an expensive stay in a Backpackers purporting to be a Guest House. The room was spacious, with two comfortable double beds - but that is where the luxury ended. The...

Great location! Kind staff! Free breakfast and comfy bed! The breakfast include toasts, coffe and tea, fresh fruit, butter and jam, some cookies, juice and milk. All of these for a cheap price. The Wi-Fi also works really well. What do you want more? I would come back here for sure!
