Property Description

Circus hostel is a place like no other anywhere in the world!

Since 2013 we have been the most booked hostel in Pai, a very social hostel known as the most popular place to meet great people and enjoy a good party.

Circus is the only Hostel in Pai with a luxury view point infinity swimming pool with a mountain view to die for and when it's so hot out its a must for afternoons. You can check the famous infinity pool view

Located only 700 meters from the walking street/night market.

Almost every night we have free entertainment for everyone to watch or join in with from, fire show, free Pad Thai dinner, free curry dinner, open mic, pool party, quiz night, pool competition, ect..

Yes we are a party hostel but we try to shut everything down by 12 and we do our best to keep the noise down after midnight so people can sleep. Most of our rooms are so far away from the bar so you can sleep anytime and won't hear great tunes playing but if you do sleep after midnight you can enjoy a room pool/bar side.

For breakfast at circus we tried to do something a little different.
We have a Chef in the restaurant area ready to cook you fresh eggs of any style, fried, scrambled or omelette. Sausages, toast with jam, marmalade or butter, pan cakes, waffles, eggy bread, chicken fried rice, vegetable fried rice, salad, two types of mixed vegetables (seasonal), selection of fresh fruit (seasonal) and a selection of fresh organic juice and ice tea.
Hot tea and coffee

This is an all you can eat buffet NOT included in the room price.
We used to have a higher price and include it for all rooms but 85% of people never wake up for breakfast so why pay for something you don't eat, we reduced the price for the rooms and if you're up in time for it you can always choose to pay to join :)

So why the name circus? For ten years before the circus opened the owner(backpacker from England) was a circus performer/extreme sports athlete. Often the place is full of people juggling, playing with fire performing toys ect… this really can change day by day. If you come to stay at the circus you never know before if the place will be full of circus people or pool party type people. If you're willing to explore and try something different and awesome then this is the place for you.

You can view our video here to see the infinity pool, amazing view (best location in Pai) and atmosphere you won't want to miss!

Many of our guests have commented that staying at the circus is like staying at an epic mini festival on a hill with amazing backpackers always around to hang out and party with.

Sometimes we have volunteers teaching free circus lessons and free yoga lessons but this is dependent on if we have a volunteer staying.

We have high speed fibre optic WIFI in public areas and we have put basic internet box's into the dorms that it doesn't reach. The reception WIFI is the best internet package we can buy in Thailand and the basic internet for rooms is good for checking emails or Facebook. Often this is not working because of bad weather but we bought the best internet in the city and that's the best we can do.

In the reception, we have a large restaurant that seats 60 people, each table has comfortable chairs and a power charging tower so many items can be charged at any one time perfect for digital nomads or just backpackers with a lot of things to charge lol.

Next to the pool is the pool side bar and lounging area, there is a free pool table, lazy chairs for 20 people and 4 hammocks.

We have a very cute and friendly dog called Jack Daniels (Labrador) (understands English or Thai language)
He likes to chill at reception but the moment someone wants to play he is up and ready.
He is getting a little fat guys so go easy on the treats for a few months please lol

We light a bon fire most nights next to the pool for everyone to relax around (weather dependent)

If you look at the accommodation, facilities and the price you will understand why we are known in Pai as the best value for money, being owned by backpackers we always push to keep our prices low to help you with your budget. :)

We rent new safe motorbikes for you to be able to explore the waterfalls ect.. We do not work with rental companies all our bikes our from the hostel and bought new June 2018 guaranteeing no scams and safe serviced bikes.

Twice a week we have a family buffet dinner with over 10 choices of Thai dishes.

We have had over 25 professional artists come and contribute around the hostel with street art, if you like street art you will love walking around looking at everything.

We take the security of our guests and their belongings as a high priority and have installed full CCTV cameras, 24-hour staff and have lockers in every dorm room.

ROOM OPTIONS- please note all our dorms and huts have been designed and built off the ground to guarantee NO bugs, insects or mosquito (IF YOU KEEP THE DOOR CLOSED! ;)

    We absolutely loved our stay here! The entire vibe and atmosphere of the hostel was incredible, the view from the pool was fab, the facilities were super! Free pick up from the bus station too, and scooter rent from the hostel itself! We were so so sad leaving, will 100% be back!

    Best place to stay in Pai. Guaranteed to get stuck in the Pai-hole here. Best part was the atmosphere, great bar and walking distance from the night out. beautiful view during the day with an amazing pool. Lack of AC in the huts is not a problem.

    Good social / party hostel with a nice swimming pool and only a 15 min walk from the main town or 3 min moped drive. Nice bar area and nice barman. Stayed in dorm and private room both were a little underwhelming to be honest, but I stayed here due to the social atmosphere more than anything. AC in dorm was only allowed on half the day and no bed curtains!

    We booked this hostel as we were told it is the place to stay in Pai. We were surprised that the location of the hostel was a little far out, however if you rent bikes then this isn’t much of an issue. Staff were friendly and helpful. The cleanliness improved throughout the stay but when we arrived I felt very uncomfortable on how dirty the showers and toilets were… lots of ants and dead bugs. If you inform reception that you want showers cleaned before use they do take action on it. It is a party hoste

    This hostel has the best common area I have seen, an incredible swimming pool and pool table. The swimming pool is only open past 10:00, which is not ideal. The problem with this hostel was that the dormes were full of bugs and you can see that the construction is bad , many things need maintenance and I’ve heard that the private rooms are way to hot. Overall, it is quite a nice place to meet people and hang out by the pool, however the rest needs some maintenance.

    Heard a lot about this hostel, everyone raves about it though when we arrived we were hugely disappointed. No activities went on throughout the night and facilities were very basic. Double private room had no AC and was unbearable to sleep in with only 1 small fan blowing hot air. Not worth the money.
