Pai is a unique place and we want to help you make the most out of your stay in Northern Thailand. Whether you want to do everything in 3 days or nothing for 3 weeks - we will show you how its done.

We have a fully stocked bar with pool table and ping pong. There is free tea and coffee, drinking water & WIFI. The bar is always pumping dope tunes and the beer is ice cold. The common area with lounges and chairs is large and comfy. There are large tables for cards and drinking games. The table tennis can become beer bong at any time. And we are just a stones throw from great local food and of course a 7-11.

Our free pick-up and drop-off service will also save you from lugging your bags around after the infamous ride up from Chiang Mai, and before your hesitant departure from Pai. And for any hockey fans out there - we are Thailands home of the NHL - any game, any team, any time!!

    This was an excellent hostel with even cooler staff. Pretty close to good restaurants and cute shops. Only stayed one night but would have loved to stay longer if time permitted.

    This hostel has a great vibe playing cool music throughout the day. It is a good place to hangout with a pool table and many areas to lounge in. Close to the city centre, day/night markets, 15 min walk to local gym (Pai Fitness Home), and walking distance to bus stations. The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious, and washroom was clean. Staff was friendly and helpful giving us plates and cutlery as we put together our own breakfast. Would stay here again and would recommend.

    Unexpectedly good! very fit for 2-3 nights with family or a group of friends. Accessible and not far from the town, the best part is the owner and staff are very helpful and very chill, me and my friends had the best time there.

    Booked 2 nights and stayed for 5! Always clean, great staff, cheap and delicious breakfast, great location and a really nice place to hang out. Met so many people here. The bike rental and trips are more expensive than other places through so have a look around first

    Nice hostel with a bar. I had an amazing stay and met great people. The chill-out area is cool and great to meet new people. They could hire volunteers that would increase the vibes around the hostel even more by for example organising activities in the evening or showing new guests around the hostel facilities. Overall great value for the money.

    Nice being slightly further from the Main Street for peace and quiet, still a short walk to shops etc. Nice communal area, basic tea/coffee facilities, very clean room and bathroom. Good atmosphere. Strong cocktails.

    It’s a good place to get a quiet night’s sleep, which you’ll need in Pai. About a 7 minute walk to the Night Food street. 7-11 and gas station right across the street. Solid WiFi. 4 bed dorm was nice, no bunks. Atmosphere was a little down, but you’ll spend most of your time in town or out exploring. Ping pong and pool tables are a nice touch. Easy to come and go as you please. Friendly cat.

    The hostel itself is nice, friendly personnel aswell! The music they play is also very good. It’s an invasion of Dutch people, so you have to deal with that, but that’s not the hostel’s fault! They serve breakfast until 12. Also thank you for taking care of my wound during my stay! Thank you!

    Very chilled vibe and conveniently located not far from town. The bunk bed was very high with a difficult ladder to disembark. People didn't seem very welcoming but that could have been who was there at the time. There wasn't much of a social atmosphere. The showers weren't the best.
