I really loved staying at purple monkey and if I didn’t have a flight to Cambodia I would have happily stayed there a lot longer! We went tubing which was organised by the staff and it was a great day out. Nathan made my stay very enjoyable keeping spirits high and making everyone laugh. Beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were good for their price.

We ended up staying here for almost 4 weeks after initially booking for 2 nights. The hostel has a great atmosphere and it’s really easy to meet people. They have different activities on each night and different drink offers each day. The staff were amazing, especially Adam and Matt, they were always really friendly and made us feel so welcome. The rooms are decent enough and cheap, and the breakfast is a great bonus! Will definitely be staying here again.

Honestly this place has changed my life, such lovely staff such beautiful food. Reasonable drinks prices, and an array of sports and activities for your average backpacker. Felt a warm and loving welcome upon entry, reasonable room and 10/10 service. Would nightly recommend to anyone traveling in the beautiful city of pai. Again 10/10 stay for me and my group of 20.

Purple monkeys is a home away from home. A party hostel which has a good balance between party and chilling out! Each day has a deal be it discounted drinks, pool tournaments, beer pong etc. Really great hostel for meeting other travellers! The staff are amazing, Maisy in particular made our stay! Such a lovely person and so so helpful throughout our stay! You made our trip! From Irish 1,2 and 3 <3
