    I kept extending my trip here! Stayed in the 3 bed dorms and I wish more hostels were like that. Gummy took the time to explain everything around and had event recommendations which were all lovely. Great atmosphere that attracts amazing people. It really felt like a big family at times. The beds were comfy and sheets/mattresses and washrooms were changed/cleaned regularly. 10min walk to town but believe me, it's better to stay a little outside where the Penguin is. Much better views and vibes.

    Wow the lounging penguin was such a nice stay! Had a really good athmosphere and Gummi and Fern were the best (Fern makes the best mojito btw!). We stayed in a very nice and homie bungalow. Would definitely recommend!! Takk fyrir allt Gummi!!

    This was probably our favorite place we’ve stayed! Gummi and Fern are amazing and do a really good job of organizing activities and getting people to participate! They also had tons of suggestions of things to do and were so happy to share knowledge of the area!

    The lounging penguin is the best hostel in Pai. I booked for 3 nights to start of but ended up staying for two weeks. In the lounging area there is always something to do or someone to talk to. The staff is amazing!! I would definitely go back there.

    Fern & Gummy (& Tibo!) were super welcoming & told me all about the highlights of Pai when I arrived, they also went really out of their way to fullfill any requests I made. The atmosphere is excellent & very relaxed, quickly feels like family instead of just a place to stay! Rooms have 3 beds which is a nice change from large dorms & they have free drinking water & bike rental.They organised trips to the fire show & host campfire nights. Great value too! Thanks guys, hope I'll see you again! :)

    Best place to stay at in Pai. Super relaxing experience and Gummy and Fern are so helpful and down to earth. They give you a map of all the best places when you first get there. They will help you with anything you need and are always there when you need them. It feels like a home away from home. I was only planning on staying one night but ended up staying three because I loved it so much and I loved the community of people. Definitely will stay here again when I am back in Pai.

    Nice hostel and very nice staff. Everyone was super friendly from the start. It's situated just the right amount of distance from town. Didn't have much of a social vibe which wasn't too much of an issue as you can get this elsewhere in Pai. Could have done with some mosquito nets above the bedvl though as i was bitten a lot while there.

    Very friendly atmosphere, I immediately felt welcome. We stayed in the double private which was spacious. The bed was also one of the more comfortable beds I've slept on while in thailand which is surprising given the cheap price of the room. You definitely get what you pay for though. The bathroom smelled strongly of moth balls which kept out cockroaches and other bugs but was quite a repulsive smell. But overall, for what we paid we were content guests :)

    Chill, easy going, hippie place. Property a little outside of Pai (walking distance).

    I was honestly surprised by its rating after staying here. The roommate I met felt the same way. Perhaps related to Fern and Gummie as they were very lovely people. But I ended up switching hostels I was so disappointed with the facilities. The bathroom smelled foul from bad plumbing and the shower was gross, which could have just been the room I got. No fitted sheets on bed so you’d inevitably end up on the plastic mattress cover. No screen on our window. Men’s body wash for soap in bathroom.
