Dont expect anything as in pictures. We booked a cottage bungalow and it was ok from the inside but the bathroom was very old. Garden is never cleaned, no lights in the night. Look haunted. Its near to Pai city center. Recommended only for low budget backpackers as by the name.

I would advise against booking this place”

This hostel was so bad that I left after being there for 10 minutes… Bad points: Rooms weren’t clean, mattresses were thin and hard like gym mats, fans in the room didn’t work, couldn’t find staff to check in when we got there, dormitory room didn’t lock and we weren’t given a key, showers had no light, were freezing cold, outside so full of bugs and mosquitos, floor was slimy and overall it was just horrible. Good points: it was cheap but still not worth the money.

Would not recommend the dormitory”

Me and my friend booked a stay in the dormitory for one night. We weren’t expecting much as it was cheap but what we were faced with was unacceptable. The rooms were filthy and the mattress was just a gym mat on a bunk bed. The showers were outside and full of bugs and moss. After we booked in we walked straight out and found somewhere else. The private rooms might be nice so I won’t be so quick to judge as the social area looked nice but I would definitely avoid the dorms.

Totally felt in love with Pai. Saw many Hostels around there. This was my favorite! So many nice people and such a chilled place. Totally loved it! Will never forget. (It‘s better to have a scooter to get to town because it’s a little bit outside. If not there are a lot of helpful people who can drive you to town aswell ❤️)

great view, quiet place, price

We stayed in the cheap room and it was nice :) bathroom is open from the top and it's cold during winter there. We get extra blankets :) location is not like shown on agoda, it bit further so you need motorbike to go to town or you can ask staff to drop you if someone is there. The view is amazing and people around are nice :) they don't speak english but that's ok :P We would come back to this hotel :)

Relaxing place, lovely staff, great view

Really nice place! We liked here everything, from very helpful staff to friendly local neighbours. Only one thing is that, the agoda map shows slightly wrong place, it is actually 10 minutes walk from town not 2, like on map, but hotel owners offered that they will give us a ride to town every time we want, so it was even better! Great stay. We really recommend it!

Couldn't even find it”

The pictures online

This hotel looked completely reasonable online and I thought I made a smart choice renting here. However, due to a combination of Agoda, HotelsCombined, and Google having poor quality maps in the area, me and my boyfriend couldn't find it. We spent about 20 min driving around the area with no luck before finding an open hotel and renting a room in person. Sad that the money was wasted and that the night was more difficult as a result, but at least it wasn't a very expensive loss. Hopefully the service at this hotel is good. I just can't say anything about it.
