Descripción de la propiedad

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.

¡Únete a la fiesta de nuestra tribu de trotamundos en el albergue The Famous Pai Circus Hostel! Algunos dicen que alojarse aquí es como estar en un minifestival, así que ven y juzga si es por nuestras noches de micro abierto, las fiestas en la piscina o las clases de yoga o circo impartidas por voluntarios. La piscina infinita y el bar junto a ella con vistas a la montaña son el corazón del albergue: túmbate a holgazanear en una hamaca o pilla una bebida. Otro extra: la cena es gratuita; solo tienes que decidirte por un curry o un pad thai. Ah, y seguramente te cruces con nuestro labrador, Jack Daniels, husmeando por ahí.


Cuando llegues, llámanos y mandamos un taxi (gratuito) a buscarte a la estación de autobuses. Pai Walking Street, una de las calles principales llena de puestos de comida tailandesa, está a 9 minutos a pie del albergue, aunque si te da pereza andar puedes ir en nuestro taxi. ¿Quieres disfrutar de unas vistas impresionantes? Alquila una de nuestras motos y en 17 minutos podrás organizarte un pícnic con vistas al cañón de Pai.

Habitaciones y Dormitorios

Tanto los dormitorios como las habitaciones privadas están en cabañas individuales elevadas por encima del suelo para mantener a los bichos a raya. Todas las camas cuentan con luz individual, enchufes y puerto USB, además de una taquilla para tus cosas. También te damos un edredón gratuito, y en las duchas encontrarás jabón y champú de gran calidad. Si te has dejado la toalla en casa, puedes alquilar una.

Extras y actividades

La mayoría de las noches encendemos una hoguera (perfecta para socializar un poco) y durante el día podrás conocer a gente en la cuerda floja que tenemos en el jardín. Aprovecha el wifi gratuito para subir fotos (¡etiqueta a tus compañeros de dormitorio!) y, aunque la conexión es mejor en la recepción, también llega a los dormitorios. De toda maneras, igual tienes que esperar a llegar a casa. ¡Aquí hay demasiada diversión esperándote!

    It’s an amazing hostel to stay at if what you’re looking for are good vibes and people from all around trying to make friends, everyone is always ready to help, and the atmosphere is fun and chill. The view is also one of the best things there!

    La vista de la piscina es alucinante, tranquilamente podrías pasar toda tu estadía en Pai viendo el paisaje desde el Circus. Tienen habitaciones privadas casi al mismo precio de las compartidas, así que vale la pena tomar esa opción para tener un poco más de privacidad.

    Un posto eccezionale! Ho prenotato per una settimana e ho prolungato per altri due giorni. Atmosfera rilassata e allo stesso tempo un party hostel. Il personale è gentile e davvero disponibile,in ugual modo i volontari. Ho letto recensioni negative riguardo la pulizia e devo totalmente smentire. Davvero ottima qualità prezzo.

    Muy buen ambiente en el hostel. EL personal de trabajo es muy atento. De algunas duchas no sale agua caliente y la limpieza de los baños no es la mejor. Algunas de las cabañas no están muy acomodadas para pasar la noche y hace mucho frío.

    El ambiente es muy bueno con los backpackers, pero deja mucho que desear la limpieza de las habitaciones y baños, sábanas muy viejas, colchón muy sucio. Las alfombrillas de los baños muy antihigiénico. Los baños directamente en el comedor es algo muy incómodo.y ver el personal tantas horas trabajando también da que pensar, están desde la madrugada hasta bien entrada la noche... por lo que las caras que llevan es entendible... no me pudieron imprimir el billete para el autobús! Es el primer host
