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

    I loved my stay! Staff was friendly, place was social and HAD space to be social. Very close to all the night market and bars - only a 15 min walk to Paradise. Beds were great. Had to figure out the toilet paper was outside the facilities not in the hard way 😜 the facilities were clean though! Showers were great! Some may say a soft pressure but I didn’t mind 🙂 I stayed in the 6 mixed dorms are they were great! Didn’t have a problem or felt like I needed the en-suite upgrade.

    Favorite place ever. I stayed 3 extra nights because I couldn’t get enough! The staff is the BEST & the location couldn’t be better. By far my favorite hostel experience so far! Would stay here forever if I could!

    Fun hostel, clean rooms. There is a pub crawl/other drinking activities every evening which makes it very social, and is located very near to the bus station.

    Nice, chill hostel with hammocks for during the day and pub crawls every night. The hostel closes the common area at 9pm meaning everyone goes out together. Air conditioning works well in the dorms. Location is perfect, less than a minute away from walking street. There are also cute hostel dogs. However, a bit expensive relative to other hostels in Pai.

    I would come back if I was to stay in Pai. It’s worth what you pay, the location is great. Right near walking street and all the amazing food carts that open up in the evenings. Too be honest Pai is such a nice place to hangout the place you stay doesn’t matter too much!

    Very Good

    This is a party hostel, but it’s a very average party hostel. The AC runs all day, so that’s nice and there in unlimited drinking water. Overall, I just think the hostel is way over priced for what it is.
