This hostel was amazing. The owner Scott and staff were of course knowledgeable about everything to see or do on the island, but then they went a step further by being extremely friendly and even joining in on the festivities. The location is pretty close to the the Half Moon festival (which is what I came for) and the Full Moon beach. The hostel also has a deal worked out with a trustworthy bike rental place which can be hard to come by in Thailand. The facilities were amazing, clean bathrooms, clean bedding, complimentary towel, clean everything. The common room offered nice furniture with a TV, xbox, wii, and tons of movies. It really felt like we were staying in a comparable hotel from back home. Thanks to Scott and the awesome crew of travelers that showed up last week!

This place is awesome.
The rooms are a good size, big beds, really clean and the bathroom, well it's nicer than my one at home.spacious, a real toilet! Big shower.
The owner Scott is lovely, he took me to a reliable tattoo parlour and was very helpful with direction, good places to eat, ect.
The lady that worked for him Ai was also great, she booked my ticket to koh lanta in one phone call. Involving a taxi, ferry,bus,taxi,taxi. How she did it? I do not know.
All I know is this place was awesome.
Will definitely stay here again.
Scott is also pretty nice to look at;D

This hostel is very nice for the price. The rooms are spacious, they have good sized comfortable beds, they have air con, very fast wifi and the bathrooms are the best i've seen for a hostel - they come with free soap, shampoo, shower gel and even shower caps! Mydorm room also had a nice balcony. This is a quality hostel and i would recommend it. The location is not near haad rin so if you want to get around koh phangan youll need to hire a moto.
If travelling solo during low season or not around the parties, maybe try somewhere nearer the action in haad rin first, or if you dont mind your own company this place is perfect and youll feel very much at home. The hostel manager is a very nice guy and is always happy to help.

I stayed at Bann Tai for two weeks, and all I can say (after travelling in Asia for over four months( is that Baan Tai makes my top three best hostel list (and trust me I have stayed at quite a few) Why Baan Tai?

A. Great Location
B. Clean comfortable rooms, with HOT water
C. Social, easy to meet other travelers
D. Mini bar, with a TV running the latest Family Guy/Futurama/South Park, and a freaking Wii console with ton of games
and last but not least
D. Scott - Great owner/manager - friendly, knows the local area well, insures all his guests have a pleasant and comfortable stay.

Thanks Segei, was a blast having you and getting on the drink. We are still Baan Tai Backpackers, not Hacienda Backpackers. Please ignore the name change and please do not review Hacienda Backpackers in this location. Thank you.
