I loved that the reception is also a bar, full of neon lights. Arrived to the hostel at 21:00PM after 16 hours from BKK and man, a beer is exactly what I needed. didnt really stop drinking until I left haha. This bar is a great place to meet up people who stay at the hostel or just passing by.... More

Once we arrived we were put in a sweaty cramped room with no window and no air con. The bathroom door... More

Throughly enjoyed my time at Baan Tai Backpackers. Situated in the heart of Baan Tai, everything on the island was extremely accessible. The hostel has a relationship with a super honest bike rental service (who provide a free lesson) so getting around was very easy. The place is cleaned daily. The beds are bigger than what you'll usually find in... More

Situation close to the half moon party and with all the other parties and events that go along with it this is the perfect place to stay. The staff here were friendly and knowledge about the local area as well as learning our names. The hostel had a great vibe and during the day was quiet so you could sleep.... More

I stayed here for the Half Moon party and went solo. It was super easy to meet people to hangout and the staff was so accommodating. They are happy to help and create a great vibe at the place. Good place to stay if you're solo or with friends - this is a social hostel. Lots of drinking (but no... More

Loved my time at Baan tai backpackers, I arrived for the full moon and stayed a little longer than expected, the island had a lot more to offer than I originally thought. The staff were great at recommending places to go and originizing groups of people to go out during the day. Really loved the night life here as well... More

Such a great little hostel! Super friendly staff who really made me feel like part of the fam. The staff encouraged us all to join them for day trips to the beach to explore the island. Lots of drinking (at very reasonable prices) - including drinking card games and beer pong - and we headed out to an island party... More

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
