Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
It’s obvious why they use the word ‘guesthouse’ instead of hostel – it’s so homely here and it still offers shared accommodation for the travellers that like to meet others.
How do you like the sound of an outdoor swimming pool, hammocks and beds made from bamboo?! YES PLEASE!
The entire property is set up as a open-plan house to encourage the social atmosphere and homely feel of the place.
It also means that the staff are always around and able to help out or answer any questions, if needed.
Some other things we just love about this hostel:
Delicious, healthy food menu

Oh and again…. a swimming pool!
The photos say it all, really – take a look below!
If you prefer to cook there is also a shared kitchen onsite.
You won’t be disappointed when it comes to room choices, either.
There’s a great mix of female and male dorms, plus separate chalets which a perfect for couples and older travellers looking for a bit more privacy.
The overall atmosphere here is quiet and laid-back, so do not expect party vibes or organised activities. It’s more like a retreat place for relaxation and a chance to get back to nature.
Location: It’s an easy and safe short walk to town from here. That means Pai Night Market and Pai Bus Station are easily accessible. It’s possible to rent motorbikes and bicycles at one of the many shops in town if you don’t fancy exploring on foot.
We suggest that if you found the place for you, it is time to check availability right away and book it now!
