This crew has a solid establishment! First arriving you're welcomed with a very laid back approach and it's almost like you have been there before. A lot of times you feel like you can't ask hosts recommendations but they have no problem giving solid places to go, see, do and how to do it proper; that in my opinion goes... More

The best place to go party and have fun !! The vibe is amazing as the people staying there! The place is close to most of the parties and the island is easy to go around. Its also really good to visit all of the island which is beautiful!

On arrival this place looked a little different to most places we had booked. However straight away Doug helped us out, showed us around and ordered us a scooter to be dropped off. Tristan and his girlfriend were fab at directing us to the best spots. But overall Ive got to rate Zak as a 5* host. He made the... More

I was going to stay 2 nights and ended up staying for a week. I really enjoyed everything about my stay, especially the staff. They were fantastic and had great knowledge of the area, things to do and see. They were even kind enough to take us to some awesome sunsets.

We stayed there for 5 nights. The staff was awesome and helpful in every way. The owners live already a couple of years on the island and are happy to share some insider tips. The rooms have a good size with a big bathroom. Downstairs you could chill out if you are sick of discovering and around the hostel are... More

The rooms are very clean and spacious. The common area is excellent for meeting other travellers and having a drink or two. The hostel staff is amazing especially the manager Zach. I recommend this hostel to everyone. Had a great time and will return!

Great place, great location, great staff. I stayed in one of the deluxe 6 bed dorms which were very comfortable, clean, airconditioned and come at fair prices! All the staff are super friendly and always happy to help you out. Right after my arrival, Zack, the manager, sat down with me and showed me several good spots like bars, beaches... More

I'm so glad I decided to stay at Baan Tai Backpackers for 3 days during the half-moon party. The half-moon party was awesome and the hostel is very close, but surprisingly, my favorite part of my stay wasn't the party, it was the people I met at the hostel, including the owners (Tristan and Karen) and staff (Doug). They are... More

Let me start by sating that I didn't even stay at this Hostel, however the experience I had here made me feel the need to write a bit to let you know the great sense of family and community you get from the moment you walk it. I was staying just right up the street at a place I had... More

From the moment we arrived the staff were welcoming and had lots of information about where to go. The room was large, very clean, and had a big balcony. The staff made sure we were all having a great time. Zach and Karen-thanks for the best few days!!! Definitely recommend this hostel as the place to stay while on the... More
