From the moment we arrived we were made so welcome by the lovely owners that we felt right at home. They helped us with all our questions and made us really excited about seeing the island. We had only planned to stay a couple of nights to do the Half Moon Party (just down the road) but ended up staying... More

Best hostel on the island! The staff is amazing. The beds are so comfy and clean. If you stay here you'll easily make friends and the staff is always willing to organize an activity. This hostel is what you'd expect from an amazing hostel.

Upon arriving to Baan Thai backpackers I was immediately welcomed in like I was family. Within an hour I was swept off my feet into the mountains of Koh Phangan with fellow backpackers where we traveled to the most amazing beach just like out of the movies. That night at sunset, one of the owners, Tristan went above and beyond... More

This must be the definition of a perfect hostel!! The owners Karen and Tristan make you feel like you stay in a family house. It's like mom, dad and all the crazy kids :) and the 2 dogs and 1 cat gives the place personality and atmosphere. It is clean, have good beds and the location is really practical in... More

I cant say enough about Baan Tai Backpackers. The owners Tristan & Karen treat you like family the moment you walk in. Within minutes of arriving I knew I had decided to stay at the best hostel in Koh Phangan. The hostel location is top notch and nothing is too far away. Tristan & Karen are full of useful information... More

Nice people. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Decent WiFi and its just down the street from a good co-working space. Great restaurants around. Quick cab from hadrin, and lots of other things as well. Good party, but not so much that you can't avoid it.

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
