Spice up your Pai

Spicy gains its reputation from being the place with great social atmosphere, personal interaction and professional management since 2006. We probably are too young and too poor to have a perfect hostel but we are second to none to create and to run the best hostels.

Here, Spicypai Backpackers, is one of our master pieces. We created this hostel from scratch. Our hard work for 2 and a half months is here waiting for you to appreciate it. This brand new hostel opened its doors on 7th Aug 2011 and it is the talk of the town now for its stunning view, chill atmosphere and great social place. Get a motorbike or hop on with someone to explore this paradise valley; hot springs, canyon, waterfalls, tribe villages etc. Or just walk around in the beautiful valley of Pai, a little hippy town where 90% of the area consists of mountains.

Hostel Features:
-Farmer huts with bamboo & leafs
-Hand-made tree house style bunk beds
-Comfy mattresses with mossy net and fresh sheets
-Common area with great view of paddy field and mountain surroundings
-Easy breakfast
-Coffee & Tea
-Hot showers

While Spicythai offers more luxury facilities like the city house, Spicypai offers a simpler farm style house with enough facilities to keep you comfy at a cheaper price. We believe a good house is not always the house with everything you want but sometime it is just a simple house with everything you need. Nice people to hang out with are more important to make a place the good place.
