Great hostel with clean rooms and bathrooms! The staff was amazing! They were very knowledgable and provided great tips for island exploration. There are even movies provided in the common areas for quieter nights. We walked in and were given a great deal!

Stayed here for a few weeks, really enjoyed my time! Met a lot of fun people. We had hilarious predrinking sessions before the main parties, there's free neon body paint for everyone and sometimes the owners even went out partying with us! The rooms are clean, the standard aircon dorms have a nice balcony and hot shower, are well-lit and... More

Three of us spent three nights here over the half moon period, it was exactly what a hostel should be especially for pre drinks - everyone drank and played games together and then we had free body paint to throw over ourselves for the half moon party. We paid for the standard room which had air con, and the hostel... More

This hostel was recommended to me by one of my friends who had previously stayed here and thank god for the recommendation because it was one of my favorite places from my 3 weeks of travelling around Thailand. We arrived in Koh Phangan after a very wet boat ride from Ko Samui and as soon as we walked in to... More

Absolutely loved Baan tai Backpackers! Karen and Tristan had only been running it about a week and yet they seemed like pros! They were really friendly from the start and looked after us for our whole stay. We were able to get recommendations on where to go, hire mopeds and get tickets for events/travel really easily and they were also... More

I love Baan Tai Backpackers! The owners Karen & Tristan make it what it is. They're so friendly, approachable and helpful and they really get involved with the social side of things. They helped us with all sorts: hiring mopeds, booking onward travel, party tickets, recommendations on where to eat & where to go on our mopeds. The rooms are... More
