Tranquil guesthouse in beautiful setting
This little hostel on the outskirts of Pai was a great tranquil find with a real relaxing yet sociable atmosphere. UP2U is well within walking distance to the town centre although we hired bikes from the town during our stay, I believe the hostel also offer bike rentals and there is ample parking.
We stayed in the 12 bed dormitory situated on the lower level in the room with the big circular hobbit type door. The room is made up of bunkbeds each with its own mosquito net, reading light, powerpoint, locker and numerous fans dotted about the room. The beds although rather hard were pretty comfortable, the only issue for me personally was the heat, not nearly enough fans for my liking. I believe the guesthouse has private rooms also, as well as different size dorms on the upper level. For the price you get free tea, coffee and water refills throughout the day, there is also facilities to do your own laundry. There are two social hangout areas the best being the one on the roof with plenty of seating and hammocks. The communal bathroom is situated outside on the lower level with a cracking view of the mountains and river Pai whilst you shower made for a lovely experience showing out in nature.
The staff here are also pretty friendly and let you get on with things whilst being helpful advising on places to see in the local area.
Overall if your looking for a chilled and relaxed yet social guesthouse in a beautiful setting at great value for money then give UP2U a try for £3.00 per night you can’t really go wrong.
