Stayed here for roughly 4 nights before and during the half moon and had a great time! The guys who run the hostel are reallyy good fun and want all their guests to have a great time; they're really accommodating and go out of their way to make sure that you're enjoying the island and the nightlife. I stayed in... More

I'd really recommend a visit, great restaurants near by and employees know all the best places to go! We love Karen ❤️ Maddie and Riya xxx

I had a brilliant time here with the best parties just right in the hostel, super-friendly staff and a very convenient room. The place is nice located next to many nice restaurants which are still cheap and even more important : next to the best jungle / waterfall parties on the Island... !!!

Baan Tai backpackers! I had such a great time. Really fun, really friendly. Karen & Tristan are great, super friendly & full of knowledge and suggestions about the island and because of this I ended up hiring a scooter & riding all across the island, discovering heaps of beaches & going to parties. So helpful! It is definitely a social... More

Wow! Just returned from a 3 night stay with Baan Tai Backpakers and missing it already! From the moment my friend and I arrived, Karen and her incredible staff were the most friendly, accommodating and chatty people and made it feel like we'd known them for years! This is the perfect happy medium for a hostel and everything a hostel... More

After landing on Koh Phangan (not during the full-moon or half-moon party) we were disappointed at how quite the island was. We happened upon this backpackers and the best two days of our holiday were the result. Friendly people and amazing recommendations led to us visiting some of the best bars, currys and burgers ever.

I showed up to the port with zero idea of where to stay, so I walked into the first bar I saw and sat down. The owner there was very friendly and gave me an orientation to the island, and rented me a motorbike. He also gave me a few hostel recommendations, Baan Tai Backpackers being one of them. He...

I highly recommend Baan Tai hostel in Koh Phangan. The staff are really welcoming and chilled but most of all I felt that I was part of the family. Zack the hostel manager is such a cool guy and really fun to have a beer with. The hostel is in a good location, not too far from the full moon... More

Baan Tai Backpackers is a gem. It's location on the south central coast of Koh Phangan allows for easy access to the entire island. It's 15 minutes to Haad Rin. 20 to secret beach. 10 from the Half Moon and Black Moon parties. 10 minutes from the pier to Koh Tao and Samui. If you're looking to explore all of... More
