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

    Comfortable rooms with sturdy beds and good AC. Good vibes in the common area. Definitely not a party hostel, but I like the option to all go out as a group at 9pm every night. Pai is amazing and so is this hostel!

    Can't fault anything. Really social and great for meeting people. Nightly bar crawl really helped for that. Free pool table, good showers, helpful staff and spacious rooms. What more could you want. From speaking to others staying elsewhere, this definitely seemed like the best hostel in Pai.

    Amazing location and atmosphere! Common Grounds is located less than 30 seconds away from the bus station in the center of Pai. The atmosphere at the hostel is friendly and social. There is a free pub crawl every night, and the common area is closed once the pub crawl leaves to ensure that everyone can still get a good night’s sleep. The dorm rooms are spacious, with nice beds and good air conditioning. This isn’t the cheapest hostel in Pai, but it’s certainly one of the best!

    Great social hostel and right near the night market with lovely staff. The only thing I would complain about is the number of showers and toilets! I had to wait ages for the loo and a shower on a number of occasions and because so many people are using them... it’s a bit grim and blocked up!

    Can’t say much about this hostel as I was so ill the whole time I was here, so hardly left my bed. Very good location, close to the night market and the Main Street as well as 7-11 and Tesco, and the staff seemed very friendly, however the bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. I normally prefer a firm bed but this felt like sleeping on a concrete slab, which was not good considering how much time I spent in the bed. The room was okay though and the chill area seemed cool

    Overall experience was meh. The guy that showed us to our room was nice at the beginning but then only talked to a few ppl he wanted too. Didn’t make everyone feel welcome. The front was nice asked for help once. Wasn’t as clean as I was expecting based on other reviews. They do a pub crawl at night which is good for those looking for a good time. But also quite for those that want a quite night.
