Should I change jobs even thought I don't hate my current job?

Current job: good hours, mid-low job satisfaction and colleagues not very socially inclusive sadly

Prospective job: 1.3x pay ($1k++ more), bad hours, heard from others that job satisfaction and colleagues are good (but of course this may differ from person to person - no way of saying if I will feel the same way)

What would you do? Moving into a tougher job and unknown environment is scary and I'm not sure if the pay raise/potential upsides are worth it.

Well, do you need to have work life balance in this stage of your career / life? Do you have a family / young kids to take care of? If you don't have any commitments at the moment, can consider the prospective new role since it pays better. And use this as a stepping stone to the next role with higher salary. But if you have family commitments, may be a better idea to stay put since the hours are better.
