    Great space, gorgeous pool and lookout. Comfy beds, dorms are warm bungalows cold. Good breakfast.”

    I think this review should be able to help any traveler: i stayed at circus for a week and I can tell you that it’s the best option in town with regards to amenities hands down. It was super cold at night and my dorm (stayed in 2) was nice and toasty. The beds were also very comfy and soft. The pool is infinity and gorgeous with a great lookout, perfect place to chill during the heat of the day. The vibe was definitely party and not super chill although that just depends on the volunteers and who happens to be staying there at the time. My friends who stayed in bungalows had a colder time at night. I preferred the vibe of the ppl I met from hostels like spicy pai and deejai backpackers but they don’t have pools and they were freezing at night. As long as your friendly you will meet ppl at waterfalls and Hotsprings or at the bars at night. Breakfast was adequate and all you can eat for 100 baht. Hostel is a 8 min walk from town but motorbike in pai is pretty much a must so good luck!

    Good hostel to party in pai ”

    I loved this hostel : the view is amazing, I loved the infinity pool, the breakfast is delicious, the bungalows are cheap considering the comfort and charm, the scooter rental is cheap, close to the city center but situated in a peaceful and cute neighborhood. Only thing : don’t go there if you’re looking for something quiet. People are partying until midnight-1am with loud music in the garden. If you want to have a good sleep this is probably not the best place. I highly recommend otherwise !

    My stay at Circus was quite alright. The room I booked (with aircon) apparently didn't even exist, but this turned out to be Agoda's fault, not the hostel's. The pool was nice but not very special since it was relatively small and smelly. There was a party vibe yet not in a bothering way; I met the nicest people. They offer free dinner: you get a small portion of Pad Thai or a soup. Moreover, you can rent scooters at the hostel but it's also only a 15 minute walk into town. I liked my stay at Pai Deejais better, but I wouldn't discourage anyone to stay at Circus.

    For the price the hostel was great. Amazing views all day round and if you're up for a good night they provide it. A great way to have a few drinks and spend time with fellow travellers. I've read people say it's clicky bit that's only when groups are travelling together. They are still friendly and inviting for chats etc. At night it gets very cold and the huts we stayed in are not very insulated so be prepared to wear layers until the morning!

    Pretty awful ”

    Easily my worst experience at a hostel so far. Honestly I should have read more before coming here, but I was disappointed in every aspect of my experience here. I appreciate social hostels but this was definitely too much of a party for me. The service was awful and rude, and the accommodation was sub par and unclean. I had to go to the hospital during my stay and the receptionist was only concerned with if I would make it back from the hospital in time for check out or not. I was initially attracted to this place under the impression that there would be yoga, or some extent of circus activities, this was not the case at all, absolutely no classes were offered during my stay.

    I started off as a solo traveler but now am not thanks to circus. The vibe here is better than any other hostel I’ve been to. I was concerned with bed bugs/cleanliness but the bungalows were spotless and never had an issue. The beds are lumpy but I fell asleep easily at night. People take you in as family here. Free breakfast buffet, free dinner, and free sunset shots added up to a great time. Would highly recommend circus for solo travelers or groups who aren’t looking for a drink till you throw up hostel, but a have as much fun as possible hostel.
