Property Description

Happy House Backpackers is a chilled but very social family run hostel with a homely vibe - we live where we work, we love where we live, and we take a break at 4:20pm everyday. 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.

'BASIC' rooms DO NOT have Air Conditioning

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!!

    I booked one night at happy house and ended up staying a week. The hostel has a chilled vibe and the staff were lovely and helpful. It was the perfect atmosphere for me there, social and friendly without the heavy drinking of a party hostel. Beds were comfy and super affordable. Will definitly be returning to pai and happy house soon!

    A great place to chill during the day and have loads of fun, if you want to! I'd originally planned to stay for 3days,ended up staying a whole week and left feeling like I wanted to stay even longer.

    It was a nice hostel, the stuff is friendly, the areas are clean and they have a ping pong table, a pool table and a nice and chill common area. During the weekend there were lots of people but during the week very few people were staying there. The vibe is chill and I would recommend it

    No complaints but not quite the social atmosphere we were expecting - perhaps it was the time of year we visited! Clean rooms with great aircon for a good price!

    The hostel itself with the staff is great. Great beds, clean and everything else that a hostel needs; except for the atmosphere in my opinion.. They should try to use the bar and common area more, try to organize activities and making something out of the area. But again very helpful and friendly staff, I appreciate that!

    Fun hostel, you meet lotsa people and it's a short walk to the walking street. Only thing to note that in cold season it can be quite cold and they leave on the air conditioning.

    Beds had interesting sheets and didn’t really vibe with the atmosphere but others did so mostly a personal thing. Really nice staff and clean enough bathrooms/showers.

    Reggae theme, Stayed in a private room and the shower was above the toilet, which wasn't great. It's down an alley so it would be scary to get to if you came for the first time at night. Front desk staff was really nice, they even drove us back to the bus station. I'd recommend if you're a no-frills type of person.

    Despite the amazing reviews I read before booking this hostel I was not very impressed. The bedrooms were so dark and there was no personal reading lamp on the beds. The plugs were also far away from the bed making it hard to charge your phone securely. There was no privacy around the beds and the WiFi did not stretch to my room. The hostel is slightly out of town and it was quite a scary walk back in the dark. I felt like there was a weird vibe and found it hard to meet anyone.
