Well what can I say? This place is amazing. Best hostel Iv ever stayed in. Helped us out when we were in need and felt like family. Tristan, Karen and all the rest of the team were the most friendly, welcoming and amazing staff Iv ever come across. Chilled out during the day with everyone hanging out together, then everyone...

The staff are super friendly and outgoing - everyone hangs out at the cozy bar and front porch which leads to a lovely communal atmosphere - after a couple of days you pretty much know all guests of the hostel and most of them end up hanging out together! The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms clean and pretty luxurious for... More

Its a must to stay place if you are looking for fun, traveling around the island, socialising and good advices about what and where to find in the island. Very helpful and friendly owners, that will drink, eat and chill with you. Has a bar that will get full almost everynight, and will lead to meeting with new people, definitely... More

Stayed here with 5 other friends and we all loved it! The staff we great, the people were great and the location was great. Would highly recommend staying here if you like to socialise and have a good time! But also good if you just want to chill out, as noise definitely doesn't travel up to the dorms

This is a really laidback, modest but great hostel. I stayed in a 6 person female a/c dorm. The rooms are well maintained clean. What makes this place incredible is the staff. They make a huge effort to make everyone happy, they took me out to some of the best beaches and bars. My time on this island would have... More

Baan Tai Backpackers is in the perfect location, close enough to the craziness of Had Rin beach whilst still within easy reach to all the beautiful hotspots Koh Phangan has to offer. The best thing about this hostel is the staff. As soon as you arrive, you are welcomed with a positive vibe and feel as though you already have... More

My Girlfriend and myself strayed here for 4 nights and i have nothing bad to say. The guys running the place are genuinely nice people and made us feel extremely welcome. This friendly positive attitude starts from the minute you check in to minute you leave and its infectious. Everyone staying seems to pick up on this vibe and it... More
