    Very welcoming and social vibe to this hostel! Originally it ended on staying for 2 days but went to 4 due to the amazing hospitality of the place. They got different social themes everyday and staff is excellent. Special thanks to Cindy and the crew for an amazing time!

    Had literally the loveliest stay at Purple Monkey, was feeling down about solo after coming from Chiang Mai but the community here is so welcoming especially Maya and Connor who made me feel at home straight away. Fell in love with Pai here!

    It wasn't the worst hostel and it was in a great location however I did find the vibe there very odd and was glad I only booked on night so that I could change hostels. Overall though if these people were not there it is a sound hostel. clean for a party hostel. Beds are average. Just think about your vibe before booking here

    A social and upbeat hostel with very welcoming staff. Caitlin, Alex and Winston were friendly and always willing to help. The location was perfect, you can easily rent a scooter from the hostel and within a short drive you could reach many of the tourist spots. The outdoor bathrooms are basic but you get what you're given for the price. Overall, I had a great stay and met some amazing people!

    No aircon only fans in private rooms and shared dorms), mosquito net was covered in dead mosquitos. Bathrooms were fility. We actually left during the night to stay in another hostel. Understandable no where in Thiland is going to have amazing clean bathrooms but from the doors not locking, p*** all over the seats, build up of god knows what in the corners.

    A good hostel if you want to party and just need a place to fall to sleep.. but if you also want to see the town and feel clean, it's not the best place. The matrasses were molding and really saggy. the wifi was really really bad and the motorbikes we've renting completely unsafe. But: the included breakfast was better than in other hostels and the other travelers there really nice and open minded and adventurous.. so it really depends on how you want to travel.
