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

The room was clean and spacious-which is unusual for a hostel room! Staff and owners were really friendly and gave us tips on what to do as we got our half moon dates mixed up! Definitely a great place to stay if you're on a budget and off to party!

We stayed at Baan Tai Backpackers for two nights and it was the best time we've had so far on our travels. Karen and Tristem (the owners) were absolutely awesome, knew all the best places and events to go to and were more than willing to help you in any way. The atmosphere of the backpackers was buzzing even when... More

Only stayed there 2 nights. The main thing is that the people are awesome. The rooms are fine for their purpose - sleeping! And the common area is good for chilling with a movie or whatever. And it's a good location in the Island with pretty much the same amount of time to get to had rin and the ferry... More

This place is amazing. The two owners are very helpfull and relax. They are also a part of the relaxing vibe which hangs among the visitors. You can meet a lot of new people here. It's also a really nice place to pre-party before the full moon and half moon parties. A place you hope you'll find again on your... More

My friend and I booked Baan Tai backpackers in advance knowing everywhere would be crazy busy for FMP and through a recommendation from a friend. Karen and Tristan were awesome hosts and really go above and beyond for you. Nothing is too much hassle, from greeting you by your name whenever they see you, to getting to know you, suggesting...

Would definitely recommend. Cheap, clean, and opposite the beach and Fisherman restaurant. Easy to book up diving, tours, and mopeds through the hostel. All the staff there are more than happy to help with anything!! The staff are from NZ, UK and Germany, so no problems with English speaking, they have also lived on the island from quite some time...
