    We had a wonderful stay with the crew at Purple Monkey so much so that we extended our stay! The atmosphere was the perfect balance of chilling throughout the day and then drinking in the night. The pub crawl was a good laugh! The receptionist was so lovely and really accommodating, Tai was an epic barman and chef and cooked the most amazing pad Thai for so cheap! Massive shoutout to all the reps for making our stay, Matt, Matt, Tom, Ollie, Pheobe, Alison, Charlotte, Hannah and Maddie!!

    Back again! Left for a few nights before I realized I never should have left. Maddie, Phoebe, Hannah, Alice, Holly, Mark, Matt, Tom, Matt, Olly and Tae (best chef in Thailand) are all responsible for the amazing experience myself and all guests have here. If you want to stay somewhere in Pai where you can chill out during the day, and party hard at night this is the place to do it. Easily one of the best hostels I've stayed at, and hope to return again soon.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at purple monkey. The breakfasts were filling, entire area kept very clean, lovely puppies on site, and lastly the staff were amazing. Matt made THE BEST daiquiris and always had a bright welcoming smile. Alison became not only my favourite staff member (sorry guys) but a friend, she had the biggest heart, made us feel included, help us find the best places to visit and made our stay so perfect. Thank you everyone!!

    We originally booked the mixed dorms, and quickly changed to a private hut. Other than that it was a lovely hostel with lots happening. Would love to return to pai and the purple monkey again:)

    if you’re looking for a party hostel you’ll probably enjoy it. we were looking for a hostel with a good atmosphere but this was a bit too much. the beds are right next to the common area so you can’t sleep as the music is blasting out until 4am. beds were like sleeping on rock and the fans in the room provided very limited air circulation. when we arrived the room stunk of sweat and smelled like it hadn’t been cleaned. however it was a good location, 10 min walk to pai centre. cheap and basic.

    This hostel was good location and the reception staff were helpful. However, you could tell a lot of the people working there were already friends which made it unwelcoming and hard to socialise. The rooms and bathrooms are disgusting. Dirty with bugs everywhere. Stains all over the walls. Really wouldn’t go back for this reason because we felt unclean the whole time we were there. The WiFi away from the reception area was awful. Stay somewhere else in Pai this place is completely missable.

    Beautiful hostel, however staff were extremely unfriendly. Had our private room been cleaned before we arrived this would have been an okay experience. Stray dogs/cats everywhere. We were given yellow stained towels but hostel had a policy that you have to pay money if anything gets dirty, which is understandable if you were given clean linens. Cancelled our five day stay and left early. Hostel needs a facelift, good cleaning and hospitable staff, there is lots of potential.

    We booked private rooms with shared bathrooms. When we got there at 2 PM there was dry vomit in the bathroom we were supposed to shower in. On top of this, the rooms themselves are basically chicken coops. 4 posts, plywood floor, metal roof with a mattress and light inside, there were also no photos on the site showing these “rooms.” We asked for our money back after seeing the rooms and they said no. They gave us money back for one night, but kept the money for our first night. Horrible. Dirty.
