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

I switched to Baan Tai from another hostel after reading the good reviews. I wasn't disappointed. Someone else here described Baan Tai Backpackers as: "a home away from home", and that's definitely my experience. I ended up staying 10 days and in part due to Karen, Tristan and the people I met here. Thanks to the good reviews, this hostel... More

I stayed there 4 nights in a double room, which was spacious and clean (a bit noisy but mine was facing the street; they've got others at the back which are certainly more quiet). Overall this place is excellent value for the price and you get to meet other travellers easily. Altough it is not centrally located there are many... More

We were advised to stay in Baan Tai rather than Haad Rin by other travellers (which I highly advise) and luckily ended up here. Karen and Tristan made us feel so at home, as well as helped us get the most out of our short time there, sorting out scooter hire, a quad biking trip and a jungle party for... More

We arrived late at night to Baan Tai Backpackers after a hefty day of travel, Karen and Tristen welcomed us with open arms. We checked in to the dorm room and it felt like we were checking in to a hotel. The rooms are big and clean with an ensuite and large balcony. There is a common room beside the... More

What a great great hostel this is! Staff are friendly and helpful. Great place to stay before full moon or half moon parties. Hostel sorts out of drinks before hand and then sorts transport to and from the party. Will one day return! Scott is a legend as well and is completely down to earth!

This is a wonderful hostel a tiny bit away from the (in)famous party beach Haad Rin. Stayed in both a dorm and then a private for a week right after the full moon party. Rooms: The dorm was very roomy with a balcony and a private bath with plenty of hot water. The private had it's own bathroom, stocked fridge,... More

I went to this hostel without any expectations as my girlfriend booked it for me. Let me just say this place was absolutely fantastic in every way you could hope a hostel to be. First, the owners of the hostel are experts on everything and anything to do on the island. Not only do they know where to go, who... More

The friendly welcome from Karen and Tristan made it feel like visiting a friend's house. There's a fabulous feel to this hostel. Great location, all day breakfast, very comfortable surroundings. Fantastic choice of restaurants nearby. The bedrooms are excellent, with large bathrooms and balconies. Great vibe in the bar and rest area at all times of the day. Karen and... More
