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

    Common Grounds was recommended to me by multiple people and now I know why! It's a great place to meet friends, chill out and there is a bar crawl every night. Everyone heads out at 9 so if you're not keen on drinking its quiet enough to hang around or get into bed. The guys that volunteer at the hostel make the experience what it is. It's a minute away from walking street. The only thing it's missing is a spot to hang out in the sun!

    I knew this spot was great the moment I showed up. Confused and disheveled from the crazy bus ride, I was greeted with a warm smile and something to drink. The hostel is in a dope spot at the end of a street in the main part of town. You’ll have the whole night market a few feet away, but noise won’t ever be an issue. The staff is beyond helpful for any questions you have. The private rooms are large with a loft setup. If I’m back in Pai I’ll definitely return.

    Great hostel, very good atmosphere. Felt very well looked after by all the staff especially the bar manager Jeen. Room was clean and well maintained. Can 100% recommend this hostel. There is a reason they are usually fully booked!

    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.

    Honestly a great hostel. Great chill and hangout place where people were having a few drinks or playing cards most nights. Best thing is that it is separated from the dorms so if you have a big night one night and want to sleep the next it is super quiet. Staff were great and I met some great people. This was the best party/chill hostel mix because you could have either if you wanted. Perfect location, literally 30 metres from the main street and bus station.
