The week I spent in baan Tai backpackers was the best week I've had so far in Thailand. The room was nice and clean. The staff were really helpful and knew where was good to go and all the parties that were on. There's a party every night on this island. The morning after you can chill out in the...

Actually I know they have very good reviews but my experience was not good. I was there 2 weeks ago and after working in hospitality for a few years in different sectors I thought the standards were not good. First of all you have to remove your shoes in the entry which I think is good if the place is...

i had an amazing time at Baan tai! Rooms were clean, ac (good lord it's hot here), and the staff is knowledgeable and awesome! They had everything I needed for a great half moon and the pre party was off the chain. Reasonably priced, strong drinks, and good looking staff. Can't ask for more.

Wooooow !! I didn want to leave. This island is magical. And this hostel makes it sooo easy. First, it's cheap, second, the staff knows everything's about the island (where to party, where to swim, where to have fun, where to eat and mooooooore) The hostel is at a perfect location. Minute walk from the beach, 7/11 (for midnight snacks)...

This hostel is cheap, clean and in an amazing location. The staff know everything you need to know and are the nicest and most helpful group of people you'll have the pleasure of meeting. The location is smack dab in the middle of everything you are looking for if you're headed to Ko Pangan, including the various parties (including the...

Excellent hostel with very friendly staff who can't do enough for you, Karen will sit down with you and pinpoint the best spots on the island. Spent 5 nights here and it was fantastic. Cheap cocktails from the bar and the hostel was full of friendly people. Also had the Netflix room which was good for chilling out in. Koh...

I didn't sleep here so I can't review the rooms but my hostel was nearby and a few of us walked to this bar for drinks. It was so much fun. We played pool, jenga, and beer pong. The staff are awesome! Great atmosphere!

I still think about my time here once every few days. As a first time solo traveler, meeting Karen and Quintin was a pivotal moment in really getting to know Ko Pangnan. A trip meant two least 10 days stretched to ten weeks as fell in love with the island. Staff are awesome and help keep the guests safe on...

Went here for pre-drinks, a really fun bar with good prices, a friendly owner and workers. The bar is quite small which makes it really easy to meet new people. Will visit again and play some pool again!

Staff was so great here that I feel bad having to give this place a bad review. However I travelled throughout Southeast Asia for three months and this was the worst hostel I stayed in. Rooms and bathrooms were dirty. I saw a cleaning lady one morning and she came in with a dirty mop and wet the entire bathroom...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of Koh Phangan's best-loved Western-run hostels for backpackers! Come stay with us, chill out with us and party long into the night with us, all while being sure you'll get an excellent night's sleep in one of our bright, spacious & whistle-clean dorm or private rooms. We're a small hostel (only room for 42!), so getting to know people is guaranteed. In fact, our friendly, sociable environment is one of the things we're most proud of. We really care about your time spent with us, and will treat you like family! ....We're situated in Baan Tai, which is exactly the area you want to stay in for all the island's famous jungle parties, including Half Moon Festival, Maya, Jungle Expererience, Sramanora Waterfall Party and Shiva Moon. We're also within walking distance to Black Moon, Baan Sabai and Loi Lay floating bar party which is on every Sunday night and hosts some of the best DJs worldwide. We're a 15 minute drive to Haad Rin for Full Moon. Baan Tai is also smack bang in the middle of Haad Rin and Thong Sala - the island's main town and pier, so we're a really great base to explore the rest of the island from. You can rent mopeds from us, and we'll give you all our hot tips! ... more   less
