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

One of THEEE most memorable trips and places of our life, we dint just have a madd time but this one was off the hook. If you need a place to stay theres no place better than Baan Tai. 1 min away from the beach. Super room conditions, even better hospitality by Karen and team definitely worth a visit. Cheers,...

Baan Tai Backpackers is one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed at, and not just for the facilities and location. The staff and owners are absolutely awesome! They know all the best spots on the island for secluded beaches, or awesome sunsets. They also help throw a wicked party when it's Half Moon time! If you're going to the... More

Found this place on Hostel world while checking out places to crash for bagpackers in Koh Phanghan, and read a couple of great reviews about it. Spent three nights here. Its the perfect place to crash for a young partyhard bagpacker. Its a two minute walk from Baantai beach and right opposite the Fisherman Restaurant which is the best on... More

Decided to spend a few days in Koh Phangan to catch the half moon party and was lucky enough to book three nights in advance. The night of the half moon party was one of the best nights of our trip, it started complimentary shots on Karen (co-owner and better half of the other owner Tristan). After a couple of... More
