I spent 2 months in this hostel. I had an amazing time and partied hard. The people that run it, Tristan and Karen treat everyone more like friends rather than lodgers and genuinely want everyone to have a brilliant time. They know the Island so well and are never short of friendly advice on things to do, places to see,... More

We stayed for four days over half moon and song kran. We had a private room which was big, comfortable and clean. There weren't a huge number of people staying as it was not full moon and it was heading into low season, but the guys who run the place still made a great atmosphere. Everyone (guests and staff) went... More

Stayed here for the full moon party and loved every minute. Was so sad to leave and can't wait to go back. The staff are absolutely amazing.....from Karen with her cat in a bag to Tristan taking us to his favourite sunset spot. There's games to get everyone introduced and advice on where to go on the island, scooter hire... More

I stayed at Baan Tai Backpackers for 5 days over the Full Moon period this month. From the very beginning all staff were so helpful and full of advice for someone who had only arrived in Thailand a few days before. We stayed in the cheaper fan room which was perfect for the budget traveller. IN BTB, there's always something... More

You will not find better hosts on the island than Karen, Tristan and the team at Baan Tai Backpackers. Both with extensive knowledge of the area and years of travelling behind them, this is reflected in BTB and why it is such a great place to stay. Whether you’re looking to party or have a more relaxed time BTB has... More

Bit off the beaten track but excellent location for either half moon or black moon parties, an excellent quality hostel. We shared a private twin room for good value which was of surprisingly great quality with AC and a balcony. Tristan and Karen are two of the nicest hosts of any hostel I've ever stayed at and went well out... More
