“True Phangan experience!”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

I loved my stay at Baan Tai Backpackers!!! The rooms are SPOTLESS, nice modern bathrooms, TV with movie channels, air-con, and a beautiful pool you can use for free, right on the beach. If you get a chance, try the massamun curry at the restaurant by the pool - DELICIOUS! It helps that the friendly owners have lived in Thailand for years and can recommend all the good things to do in the area...besides full moon parties, there's also great diving and Ang Thong National Marine Park to explore near by. Will definitely be back on my next visit to Koh Phangan!

I had a really great stay at Baan Tai Backpackers over the Decemeber 10th full moon party. Scott the owner was amazing and helped us out loads - even holding our bagage for us whilst we hopped over to Koh Tao for a few days. He arranged a social area for pre drinking before the full moon party as well - such a nice guy. The accomodation is really spatious and the beds are very comfortable. A few of the rooms we stayed in had cable tv as well which was great when we were feeling abit worse for ware the following day. Location was perfect for the ferry and only a short distance in a tuktuk or by moped to Haad Rin. Would highly reccomend staying here!

Room Tip: Go for a mixed dorm if you are looking to make friends or a smaller 4 bed if you want abit more quie...

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
