Awesome hostel! It was pretty chilled out the 3 days I was in Pai but that was what I needed... Perfect hostel to chill and watch the sunset from. It's a short walk out of town (10-15 mins) but I always found people to jump on a bike with anyway! Met cool people. Loved the set up. Definitely recommend this hostel!!


It's a pretty cool place to stay but doesn't have windows in the window frames or doors in the door frames as its an enormous hut so at night despite having 3 blankets provided everyone in my group had woken up in the night because they were so cold. An amazing place to stay, just maybe not in Thai winter!


pros: great staff, cool layout, free coffee at breakfast, very social, value for money! cons: stay away if you want to sleep haha. I was unfortunately partied out when I got here and this place does not allow you to sleep. Beds are all interconnected so anytime someone gets in their bed yours shakes as well. Seems to be a bit of a party hostel to as people came back every night I was there loud and drunk at 3 to 4am. If that's your scene, this is your place!


Tim made this place incredibly fun. It's a great place to stay and the best place to stay if you are in Pai. It's location is decent, but everyone gets motorbikes so you can easily access town and anywhere else from Spicy. Really cool atmosphere, unlike any other hostel I've ever stayed at. Definitely not for everyone, so maybe just do two nights and see how you feel after that.


The best hostel I have stayed at yet - amazing vibes

Great hostel! Beautiful surroundings, next to a rice field. Nice bungalow-style dorms, although the big dorm can be a little loud. Wonderful common area with hammocks and a beautiful view. Great for solo travelers or people trying to meet others. Wonderful place to stay in Pai. Staff is not very present, but nice and friendly.


Great atmosphere, loved the place! Easy to meet people.


Great time at spicy pai's! We were there for less than 24hrs but had a great time!


Great staff, fun atmosphere and really good value for your money. Tim


Really cool place to spend a few days! About a 10 minute walk outside of town means that this place is as peaceful as it gets! Lots of cool stuff to do around Pai or just hang out in a hammock and relax. Love the open feel of the place, bathrooms were outdoors, but always clean and stocked! Lockers available to keep your stuff in. Great place to just come and get away from the city.


SpicyThai was better than my expectation. Met many nice ppl there. If you travel solo, this is the place you meet others and exchange information about Chiang Mai.

The place to be in pai if your not here your simply missing out its a complete social hub of backpackers complete with mosquito nets - hallelujah


Location was fine - Pai is not very big anyway. This is definitely a hippie party hostel - so know what you're in for.


Very basic but fun hostel and you get to stay in a bamboo house with awesome views. Would recommend to everyone just for the atmosphere!


LOVE this hostel. Ashley is AMAZING! It's a beautiful location, incredibly easy to meet people, the owners are the best. This hostel made my trip to Pai. Don't say no to the bathroom bar.


Really great atmostphere and an amazing location! It's pretty basic so if you don't like outdoor toilets and showers then maybe don't stay here. I loved it though!


You don´t go to Pai to be in the city, This hostel is amazingly located just a 10 minute walk from the city in the country side. For 150 baht, you get an amazing outdoor experience. Only complaint is breakfast..... the bread runs out early and the bannanas weren´t ripe and the tea was gone by 9. But most people went into town for a nice breakfast later.


Loved, loved, loved this hostel!!! The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming, the hostel was clean and in a great location! Just a short walk to the centre for the bars, restuarants aqnd shops! I would highly recommend this hostel if you want a sociable, party atmosphere!! It was a brilliant price for what you got and i would definately stay here again!!!


loved it and I'm going back


great looking place among the rice field , don't go here if u want a quiet night , breakfast a included I would mention it on the booking site , slightly far from centre and no lighting at night
