This place is worth a minor splurge for a time when you're gonna want some sweet comfort in the morning. Rooms were spotless and beds were comfortable. Scott (the owner) is a total babe and really down to earth, he helped us with everything we needed and was cool to party with too. The hostel has a really friendly party... More

This hostel is a special place. Why? Because when you enter the window doors and see all this crazy writtings over the walls from people all over the world who crossed by there and now part of it you can feel a different flow . The owner Scott is such a awesome person who make sure you feel great and... More

Stayed in the 6 bed dorm with AC - great decision after a long night of drinking - didn't want to die in the heat. Very clean - the bathroom was spotless, not even gross usual mold stains. Shower is separated from the toilet in this particular room (unlike many hostels and possible unlike some of the other bathrooms) which... More

Friendly staff,, clean rooms, and great people. I know it's near the water and has a breeze but more A/C in the lobby would be nice. Met some great people and the half moon was well organized, but a little quiet surprisingly. Great place to stay!

You won't find many betters hostels. The room was clean/really well maintained, the facilities are great, the location is ideal (especially for half moon/jungle party) and the messages on the wall are a nice touch. The staff make the hostel though. Scott and his staff were incredibly accommodating from the second we walked through the door and this made all... More

Baan tai backpackers is an awesome hostel. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the food is good, the common room is nice, you can book tours et cetera... but the best parts are the vibe and the people. During the day, there is a laid back vibe (party recovering) and during night the partymode is on!! The hostel attracts so... More

What can I say... From the moment I stepped through the door it was one of the best hostel experiences I have had. Scott, the owner was really friendly and helpful, the place was welcoming, clean and sociable and in perfect distance from any of the party's we went to. You could hire mopeds from the hostel for 150 baht... More
