Property Description

Common Grounds Pai is a Backpacker Hostel & Hangout in Pai City Center

A social backpacker hostel in the best location in town, Common Grounds Pai is the place to be to meet & bond with fellow travelers. During the day, we often have awesome things to do together like day trips around Pai to see the waterfalls and canyon or a chill day at the coolest pool in town (Fluid Swimming Pool). At night, we pregame at the hostel together until 9 pm and then hit the best bars and nightly events in town, from open mic nights to pub quizzes to dance parties. Since we close early, those that want a good night's sleep can get one comfortably. We have small dorms (6 beds each) with air-con, lockers, comfy beds, and individual power outlets. We can't wait to host you soon!

We aren't a party hostel so if you are looking for an absolutely mad time, you might want to look elsewhere, but each night we do pregame and socialize together in the communal area and then hit the best nightly events in town at the local bars, from live music to beer pong tournaments. We want the people who need a good night's sleep to be able to get one so please be quiet when coming home later after a great night out!

-Best Location in Town (50 meters from the Walking Street & all of Pai's best restaurants and bars)
-Chill & Social Communal Area
-Pool Table
-Pub Crawls & Day Tours (sometimes)
-Free Water Refills
-Free Coffee & Tea
-Free Wifi
-Dorms have air-con, lockers, and are small (only 6 beds)

Leaving the local bus station, go right, take your first right, and the hostel is down on the right (1-2 minute walk).

Our new private rooms can sleep 3 people (2 in a king-size bed, 1 on a comfy sofa-bed) at no additional cost. The cost is equivalent to 3 dorm beds so if your group of 3 wants the privacy of a private room but the social atmosphere of a hostel, this is an awesome room to book! View House Rules

    This is the most amazing hostel, seconds away from the main night marker street. The common area is perfect for meeting people and everyone is so friendly. The staff here are amazing, super helpful and always have recommendations for things to do around Pai if they haven’t already organized something. I recommend this hostel for solo travellers or anyone who’s open to meeting new people! Try to plan to have the option to stay here longer than you intended you’ll want to!

    Common Grounds hostel was the best hostel I've stayed in over my month of travel. It was very social, and interactive with other guests, which I appreciated as I am traveling solo. The staff was incredible and very helpful and very fun. I stayed in both the dorms and in a private room. Both were great, but the private room was like a suite, with living room area (no TV) and an open loft bedroom. I will definitely be back again!

    Had a great 3 nights here, very social and easy to mix with other travelers. Right in the middle of pai, just off walking street. Free pool table, good common area layout. Only thing they could do with is improving the toilet shower areas. In saying that it wouldnt put me off staying again.

    I loved staying here. Met a lot of great people. Enjoyed playing pool and going to the bar hop. Pai is about being social and this hostel delivered but was also respectful for those who wanted to sleep. Right near everything. Would stay again.
