Property Information:

Pai circus school and backpackers resort really is the talk of the town, opened in December 2012 and fast became the most popular place to hang out and meet new people while enjoying great facilities, an amazing view and the best atmosphere in the small town.
Please watch our video on the left next to our photos to see the great fun that is always being had at our guesthouse.
Close to the heart of Pai, Pai Circus School & Backpacker Resort offers guests a warm Thai welcome, friendly service, and what its most famous for the best atmosphere in town
This year we have been awarded a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence and South East Asia Backpacker magazine have wrote a five page story about staying at the hostel naming us a backpacker destination hotspot.
Please note
We have had some negative reviews about our bathrooms.
People spend alot of time playing out on the grass, jumping on the trampoline, playing pool ect.. and then walk lots of mud into the bathrooms.
Although they are very well cleaned twice a day the floors spend most of there time muddy.
If your looking for the real must see backpacker experience wrote about in south east asia backpacker magazine and numerous blogs then this is the place not to be missed.
We have tried different methods to keep the floors clean but when so many people every day play around such a huge and beautiful site its inevitable the floors will get muddy

With such a huge site we can offer three different covered areas for relaxing or entertainment all with great views of the mountains.
Our large reception area has a cosy lounge, bar and restaurant with an amazing view, and here you can find free tourist information, rent motorbikes, attraction bookings, free WIFI, TV, DVD player and games.
The on-site restaurant offers traditional Thai and Western food, as well as fresh fruit and yogurt shakes all at low prices.
All ingredients are locally sourced and some grown right next to your bungalows.

Our Circus bar offers beers and delicious cocktails, come and try.

In the centre of the resort you can have a swim in our infinity pool or sunbath poolside on beautiful rattan furniture, bean bags or sun loungers.
Towards the back of the garden you can jump around on our extra large trampoline and at the same time take in the wonderful views of the surrounding area.

Towards the side of the resort you can relax in our view point hall, great for reclining in a hammock or enjoying dinner with a beautiful view.

There is a very large grass area for many games to be played.

We have a large amount of different circus equipment all free for you to pick up and have a play with the group.
We also have a circus course if you’re interested in a full circus experience.

The circus school building is also a very popular hangout area with music and very comfortable seating.

We offer five types of accommodation.

Large poolside bungalow with private bathroom, TV, balcony with hammok, bench and luxury mattress

Large poolside bungalow with three single beds, private bathroom, TV, balcony with hammok, bench.

Bungalow with shared bathroom and queen size bed

Four bed dorm poolside with shared bathroom, private balcony, hammok and bench.

12 bed dorm rooms.

The private bungalows are all fitted with queen size beds.

Almost every bungalow features amazing views of the beautiful surroundings and, because of this, many customers choose to eat breakfast in bed or on their balcony.

Having so much going on at the resort means it’s a great place to meet new friends and have fun.

We have many more photos and stories on our Facebook page as well as YouTube videos of different fire shows we have in the evenings

    Nice location with some nice staff but far from town compared to a lot of other places. It's not a clean hostel with very few showers and toilets which very aren't good. Beds aren't great either. Would stay closer to town for cheaper and cleaner and visit for the view.
