Baan Tai Backpackers is a great place to stay on Koh Phangan! The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk from the ferry pier and is surrounded by some great restaurants and bars! The market is 10 minutes away; anything you could need is within a 10-15 minute walk.

The hotel itself is great! 3 floors, open air hallways and the rooms all have A/C! The rooms are clean, towels are provided, and there is refrigerator (pretty clutch to keep waters/beers cold)! The owner, Scott, does a great job at getting pre-games going for Full Moon parties and things like that. It was great getting to meet everyone in the hostel before going to the Full Moon! He is helpful with giving advice on the island, as well as suggesting things to do around town.

The pool that you get FREE access to is wonderful, just a 3 minute walk down a side street and you are ocean front at a pool (with a swim up bar).

There are hop-on/hop-off taxis everywhere, so getting around is easy. It was 100 baht to get to the Full Moon/Haad Rin beach.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this place. Great atmosphere and wonderful people! I would completely suggest this hostel to anyone! It is a safe place for travelers and great to make new friends!

Room Tip: Don't get a room on the road--cars tend to honk a lot and locals get going EARLY around there!

This is one of the best hostels I stayed in! Happy and helpful staff, very very clean place, we had a fridge in our room that was awesome! The location is very good and so easy to get to Haadrin beach and you are not in middle of the crazy party so you can get a little break :) And you get a free access to swimming pool, we relaxed there over the daytime and got some sun:)
Scott the owner is awesome, so helpful and friendly! We would definitely go there again and again :D
Thank you Baan Tai Backpackers team for everything, we had the time of our life see you soon!!

Great place to stay if you want to have a great time and meet nice people. We stayed here during the halfmoon party and Songkran festival. Scott, the owner, made us feel so welcome. He arranged nice things to do together, so we got to meet wunderfull people in the hostel. You can rent a moped down the road for under 200 baht and go anywhere you want, the hostel is in a central place on the island. We would definately stay here again. Scott keep up the good work and thanks for that unforgettable time!!
