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

Visited Koh Phangan for the Half Moon Festival and stayed at Baan Tai Backpackers after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor. I loved the hostel, the the owners, and the guests -- all very friendly, fun, and hospitable. The owners even provided neon paint and helped us get ready for the festival. If you stay here, make sure you visit... More

This place is worth a minor splurge for a time when you're gonna want some sweet comfort in the morning. Rooms were spotless and beds were comfortable. Scott (the owner) is a total babe and really down to earth, he helped us with everything we needed and was cool to party with too. The hostel has a really friendly party... More
