Great if you're a hippy, free spirit or lackadaisical, AND want to party. A big warning to all those who are not, or don't want to party.
We met a great guy, and there were lots of vegans, which was great. Unfortunately, the negatives outweighed the positives.
We stayed 5 nights in a Bungalow, switching bungalows after the 3rd night. The reason we switched is because we booked a 2 person bamboo bungalow, with futon on ground, no frame, which was perfect. However, this wasn't available the first 3 nights so they had "upgraded" us to a bamboo bungalow that had a bunk bed with a double futon on bottom and single on top. This was not what we wanted and made it difficult to manoeuvre in the room and bed. To get around my partner in the middle of the night I literally had to climb over her, while making sure I didn't hit myself on the ceiling of the bunk bed.
The bungalows are in pretty rustic condition as well. The fan in the first bungalow didn't even have a place so it sat on the floor making it relatively ineffective. The door was extremely loud and squeaky, the floor was very loose and easy to trip on, and the windows didn't stay open. It generally felt like it had been built and then never maintained.
The second bungalow was in nicer condition, solid floors and doors, quiet manoeuvreing, and one of the windows actually stayed open.
It was definitely not for neat freaks though, ants can and do still get in and crawl on you, and the bug net was covered in debris that had fallen from the tree above through the roof.
Also, the hammocks they provided with the bungalows are the skinniest I've ever seen, pretty awkward to lay in.
The first night we stayed, there was a crazy party with very loud bass pumping until after 3am. It was super loud even with ear plugs. The next morning, the school right next door starts up early and the school kids get super loud.
Every night there were quite a few people partying at the hostel until at least 1 am, and they can be heard on the whole property.
We had a friend staying in the form for 2 nights and he had it the worst. The dorms are literally right above the bar, speakers and common area, making it unbearably loud. Also, almost everybody smokes, and all that smoke goes right up and into the dorms.
The vegan food they said was available for breakfast was essentially a lie. You can get food delivered to the hostel from local restaurants if you're lazy.
The wifi was extremely slow. Every single other shop in Pai had significantly faster wifi.

I was expecting a lot and it turned out to be better than I imagined. The host and the nearby surroundings were wonderful

I came here with a group of 14 people and the owner was very helpful despite us having a slightly rowdy group. The accommodations themselves were decent and just what you can expect for the price. The environment and location are ideal. Within 100 meters from one end of the popular walking street in a quite and secluded area. As long as you are okay with "roughing it" compared to typical western hotels/resorts, then I definitely recommend this place. Location, environment, and staff service are all great.

We booked couple hours before our arrival. Once there we discovered that we have no place to sleep due to some kind of computer problem or at least that was their excuse. I'm still waiting for the booking money.
