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

    Wow. One of my favorite hostels in Thailand for sure. The open common area is a great hangout to meet new people, and the in-house bar makes it a convenient pregame before a night out for a pub crawl. Facilities were clean and quiet during the appropriate hours. Staff was super friendly.

    Grew hostel. Friendly atmosphere and the people really made it what it was. If you can afford it, try booking the private room, there's two beds in it.

    Fab time here. Staff were fantastic, great mix of fun and relaxation. If you want party party all day and late into the evening stay elsewhere. Common areas close after 9pm and bar doesn’t open until 5pm.

    The staff is super nice, common areas make it easy to meet people. It’s a 1 minute walk from the street night market which makes it super easy to find cheap food in the evenings. It’s also really close to all the bars and they do a free bar crawl every night which was always so much fun! If you want to get a good nights sleep, this is the place to do it because the bar crawl leaves at 9pm. Only thing: bathrooms are semi-outdoors which means you’ll be showering with geckos watching you.

    We got a private room which was perfect, couldn’t have asked for much more really The staff were very very friendly and helpful and helped us with a lot tips and just in general We didn’t spend too much time at the hostel itself unfortunately so can’t comment on activities for example but every time we were around everyone was so friendly, helping and just an all round good vibe. Was a very reasonable price for our room and we kept extending our stay each day because we just didn’t want to go

    Loved my experience here such a chilled out hostel, maddie, Justine and Harry were so friendly, really soft bed sheets and comfy beds, hot showers and generally just felt really comfortable here, although the AC filter hadn’t been cleaned it made everyone in our room really sick. Other then that it’s amazing, the location is perfect can easily get a bike from dragon fly round the corner 7/11 30 seconds away, would recommend
