We loved this hostel and everyone in it! The staff was super friendly and helpful; and even though the Full Moon Party was cancelled, they made sure we had a great stay. The staff arranged day trips to the beach and to bars at night. Facilities were super clean--stayed in a female dorm of 6. Met amazing people from all... More

Really a fantastic hostel. Clean, bright, airy rooms, comfy beds, big bathroom and the best atmosphere of any hostel I've stayed at. Every night was a hoot, predrinking before each party - playing drinking games, beer pong, getting painted in neon colours. The staff were the kindest and friendliest I've ever met, remembering each of us by name and actually... More

Arrived to the hostel at 21:00PM after 16 hours from BKK and man, a beer is exactly what I needed. didnt really stop drinking until I left haha. This bar is a great place to meet up people who stay at the hostel or just passing by.... More

My friend and I booked this hostel a few months in advance over hostel world for the full moon. Online it said you had to stay a minimum of five nights so we went with the cheapest room available. Once we arrived we were put in a sweaty cramped room with no window and no air con. The bathroom door... More

Throughly enjoyed my time at Baan Tai Backpackers. Situated in the heart of Baan Tai, everything on the island was extremely accessible. The hostel has a relationship with a super honest bike rental service (who provide a free lesson) so getting around was very easy. The place is cleaned daily. The beds are bigger than what you'll usually find in... More

Situation close to the half moon party and with all the other parties and events that go along with it this is the perfect place to stay. The staff here were friendly and knowledge about the local area as well as learning our names. The hostel had a great vibe and during the day was quiet so you could sleep.... More

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
