This hostel is cheap, clean and in an amazing location. The staff know everything you need to know and are the nicest and most helpful group of people you'll have the pleasure of meeting. The location is smack dab in the middle of everything you are looking for if you're headed to Ko Pangan, including the various parties (including the...

Excellent hostel with very friendly staff who can't do enough for you, Karen will sit down with you and pinpoint the best spots on the island. Spent 5 nights here and it was fantastic. Cheap cocktails from the bar and the hostel was full of friendly people. Also had the Netflix room which was good for chilling out in. Koh...

I didn't sleep here so I can't review the rooms but my hostel was nearby and a few of us walked to this bar for drinks. It was so much fun. We played pool, jenga, and beer pong. The staff are awesome! Great atmosphere!

I still think about my time here once every few days. As a first time solo traveler, meeting Karen and Quintin was a pivotal moment in really getting to know Ko Pangnan. A trip meant two least 10 days stretched to ten weeks as fell in love with the island. Staff are awesome and help keep the guests safe on...

Went here for pre-drinks, a really fun bar with good prices, a friendly owner and workers. The bar is quite small which makes it really easy to meet new people. Will visit again and play some pool again!

Staff was so great here that I feel bad having to give this place a bad review. However I travelled throughout Southeast Asia for three months and this was the worst hostel I stayed in. Rooms and bathrooms were dirty. I saw a cleaning lady one morning and she came in with a dirty mop and wet the entire bathroom...

Great little hostel! The staff is very attentive. The rooms are spacious, clean in a dormitory for 6 people with or without air conditioning with a very good value for money. Possibility to rent scooters at a very reasonable rate. Then several activities are proposed according to the day of the week and trips tour. Would recommend to anyone. I...

I've stayed in a lot of hostels during my travels and this has got to be among the best. I arrived for the full moon with my friends and what was originally planned to be a 5 day stay turned into almost a month. The bar is right at the entrance so be careful if you arrive between 8-9; happy...

Not even sure where to begin. When they say there's only so much you can blame on the full moon, the rest you can definitely blame on buckets and baan tai backpackers. The fun truly never ends at this place. To say the staff was accommodating and personable would be an understatement. Every night they'd host a pre-game, ensuring easy...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of Koh Phangan's best-loved Western-run hostels for backpackers! Come stay with us, chill out with us and party long into the night with us, all while being sure you'll get an excellent night's sleep in one of our bright, spacious & whistle-clean dorm or private rooms. We're a small hostel (only room for 42!), so getting to know people is guaranteed. In fact, our friendly, sociable environment is one of the things we're most proud of. We really care about your time spent with us, and will treat you like family! ....We're situated in Baan Tai, which is exactly the area you want to stay in for all the island's famous jungle parties, including Half Moon Festival, Maya, Jungle Expererience, Sramanora Waterfall Party and Shiva Moon. We're also within walking distance to Black Moon, Baan Sabai and Loi Lay floating bar party which is on every Sunday night and hosts some of the best DJs worldwide. We're a 15 minute drive to Haad Rin for Full Moon. Baan Tai is also smack bang in the middle of Haad Rin and Thong Sala - the island's main town and pier, so we're a really great base to explore the rest of the island from. You can rent mopeds from us, and we'll give you all our hot tips! ... more   less
