Come hangout with us! We’d love to have you!
Our communal area is the perfect place to meet other travelers. Play pool, watch a movie, read in a hammock, or have a beer. Come see why we are consistently ranked as the #1 hostel in Pai.
Steps away from Pai’s night market and walking street, yet tucked away in our own beautiful garden sanctuary, Common Grounds Pai’s location is perfect for a mix of convenience and comfort.
All of our rooms are well built, modern, air-conditioned, and super comfortable. We have great, comfy beds, and lockers for your valuables.
Communal dinners, pub quizzes, group outings to the waterfalls or pool, we strive to make you part of our family.

After only 5 nights staying here I was welcomed with open arms into the Common Grounds family as part of the bar staff. It really didn't take much convincing to stay on and work, I had known in the first 15 minutes of arriving that it would be hard to leave. Pai is incredible - simply put - a paradise in the mountains unlike anything you have experienced. Lay in hammocks all day listening to ridiculously talented musicians and creative humans or hang with locals and get the inside tips on local nightlife, tour deals and delicious food spots. There's really is something for everyone at Common Grounds and a family is just one of them. Thanks team for the unforgettable memories!! ?Berry

Only planned on staying for 2 nights and ended up staying 6. CommonGrounds offered such a welcoming environment. There was a pool table, darts and plenty of tables to socialize. In addition, the staff attributed to making my stay there beyond perfect. Jake made sure we always knew where to eat, where to go and when. He never let anyone feel left out and was always lending a helping hand. As a result CommonGrounds turned out to be one of my favorite places, thanks Jake and to the rest of the CommonGrounds staff. Highly Recommend!

Managed to grab a room last minute, as it was getting late and couldn't find our hostel....bed was harder than the floor and there were ants everywhere. Location was good for town, but would've been nice to sit outside in the common area to experience this 'family atmosphere' everyone is talking about!

Common ground exceed expectations. The dorm was clean and beds super comfy. The best part of the hostel is the common area. Top points for the pool table. The staff were the icing on the cake. The stay wouldn’t have been the same without Jake and James. Both awesome people � Thanks Common Ground!

Common Ground Pai is really really nice place to stay, easy to find. It is located nearby the night market and the bus station. The couple who run the place is funny and lovely.

My favourite hostel I have ever been to. Try to go back as often as possible. Nice rooms, friendly and attentive staff, and an atmosphere unlinked any other. Highly recommended

Common Grounds Pai was a whole lot more than I was expecting. The rooms were okay and did what they say on the tin. The thing that exceeded my expectations was the staff. Such a welcoming group of individuals which make up one giant family. I seriously urge you to sit and get to know them over a few glasses of wine. They will give you an insight in to Pai aswell as some valuable words of wisdom which has made me take a look at my life and re-evaluate the path I'm on. Thank you. You helped me more than you will ever know.
