What makes Baan Tai Backpackers stand out for me was the quality of the staff they have working here. Friendly, helpful and keen to involve you in the life of the hostel. They made the Full Moon experience one to relish. In other hostels the staff stick to their own, here the European/Australian staff and management treat you like friends.... More

My sister and I stayed here during the low season and loved it. The people who ran the hostel were the highlight. The manager (whose name I never got) was very friendly and emitted great vibes. Alex was so nice and extremely helpful. He made me feel very welcomed. And Lydia is possibly the coolest chick on the island. We... More

We went early July, and they were about 10 people that were checked in. Not too sure when other reviewers were at this hostel, but this hostel was empty, even for the black moon party. We had a dorm to ourselves (excluding the one member of staff) Most evenings and even some staff went over the road to ECHO BEACH... More

Location wise the Backpackers was located... 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
