Krabi, Thailand – what is there not to love about this enchanting place? I fell in love with it the moment I laid my eyes on it from above, in the aeroplane. With its magnificent limestone cliffs, lush greenery and idyllic beaches, Krabi is a popular destination among travellers and adventure seekers like myself. 😀
Glur Hostel – The Preferred Hostel on Tripadvisor
During my fun-packed, 4 days 3 nights adventurous trip to Krabi, Thailand in July 2013, I stayed at Glur Hostel in Aonang and mark my words, it is no ordinary hostel. If you know me or have read my profile, I have a penchant for visiting or staying at accommodations or places which are unique; may it be décor, concept or environment which are usually affordably priced and is value for money – right down to the very last penny. 😉
Glur Hostel happens to catch my eye with its interesting concept and décor. I found out about this unique hostel through travellers’ review on Trip Advisor. It is ranked as #No.1 of 49 Speciality Lodging in Aonang on Trip Advisor and it has strong reasons for being so. With that, I booked my room at Glur Hostel on Booking.com with a peace of mind.
Shuttle Bus Ride From Krabi Airport To Glur Hostel
Getting there from the airport is really easy. First, by taxi which costs about 600 Baht per taxi/journey. Second, by shuttle bus which costs about 150 Baht per person. Both the taxi and shuttle bus will be waiting outside of the airport. Just inform the taxi driver/bus conductor your destination by telling him/her the name of your hostel/hotel and they’ll drop you off right in front of the property. 🙂
This Thai sentence was provided by the hostel management for my convenience: “ เกลอ โฮสเทล ซอยอ่าวนาง 11/1 (ซอยกรีนวิว รีสอร์ท ตรงข้ามมัสยิดอ่าวนาง) เข้าซอยมา 200เมตร อยู่ขวามือ ”. It means “Glur Hostel. Soi (it means lane) Aonang 11/1 (or Soi Greenview Resort, opposite of Aonang mosque.) About 200 meters from the main street and on the right side.” I took the shuttle bus to Glur Hostel and I must say, I enjoyed the 20-30 minutes scenic ride very much.
I will tell you more about the hostel and the amazing room which I stayed in in my next few write-ups. Below are some photos of Glur Hostel and its surroundings. More photos and information will be shared in the next few write-ups so, do follow my blog closely.
