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

    Great social hostel. Second time staying here. Staff are great. The location is right off walking street. Nightly pub crawl is great fun. Definitely recommend if you are coming to Pai.

    Social place, nice vibe. Duvets could do with a refresh as they had a slightly damp smell about them but apart from that the stay was good

    absolutely loved my stay at common grounds — i ended up coming back for a 2nd time on my trip! felt super safe throughout my time here and welcomed by all the staff (adored all the volunteers! especially the english guy keto hahaha maybe a little too much). i recommend doing the tour that CG offers with random people from the hostel, it’s a great way to see all the big sights in a day and to bond with new people. the pub crawls were one of my favorite parts 10/10 recommend goin (every night) lol

    I had such a great time at this hostel. It was in the perfect location in Pai and the staff were really helpful. It’s definitely more of a rustic feel but every night I was there I had a ton of fun and I made friends instantly when I arrived. Pai is an awesome city but it makes a huge difference to be right on the walking street! I would 10/10 recommend!

    Common Grounds was a super lovely social hostel which created space for both party vibes and chill. Ore drinks and pub crawl every night free of charge meaning it was inclusive of all guests regardless of budget. Beds were comfortable, good air conditioning and amazing communal chill out area, with friendly staff always around for a chat. Bathrooms were not the best, but were clean and got the job done. Would definetly recommend for your Pai stay, as amazing location, on the walking street.

    If you like to meet a bunch of new fun people, this is the place. Great way to start in Pai en make some friends for the rest of your stay. The community area is chill and relaxing. The check in lady is such a nice person. Stayed here for two nights and had a fun time here. Some people think this is a party hostel but that's not really the case. The barcrawl starts here at nine, but the party itself is in barstreet. It is not a fancy posh place, but a hostel with a chill and fun vibe!

    Very good hostel! LOCATION +++ right on main street!! Common area is beautiful with a pool table and cute dogs hanging around. There is also a bar and this one more experienced lady makes great drinks (better than the other bars in the city). You need a key to access each individual dorm room and a locker is provided. Staff is courteous, not specially friendly or helpful. The place is clean enough. They organize pub crawls which is great to meet ppl. All in all, pretty great hostel!

    We booked 5 beds in a 6 bed mixed dorm but upon arrival we were told that our group couldn’t stay together as some people had decided to extend their stay. At no point did we feel welcome in this hostel. The people who stayed in my dorm informed me that two people had had sex in my bed the night before and no one had washed the sheets which they knew as they had stayed in the whole day. The communal bathrooms were disgusting. A dog in the hostel bit a girl. Free coffee was a nice touch.
