Thank god we heard about this place through word of mouth because typically people stay right on Haad Rin beach. Baan Tai backpackers is less than a 10 min scooter or cab ride to the beach and you don't have to deal with the aftermath of the full moon party - but don't worry there is plenty of partying to be done at Baan Tai. Scott and "A", were always helpful and he even spent the following week with us in Koh Tao certifying us for our PADI open water course - such a great time. Not a single bad thing to say about this place, look no further, book at Baan Tai Backpackers!

We will be back! See you sooner than later Scott! This place was the highlight of our trip!

amazing time for the november full moon. scott is a great guy who cares a lot about his customers. felt like an old friend.
if i ever do that crazy party again, i know where to stay!

had a great room in the "honeymoon suite" after sleeping in dorm beds for a few months, me and my boyfriend needed our own room. had a great balcony and lovely bathroom. the worker who lived in the hostel, natty was amazing.

why stay in the most touristy place, haad rin, when you can stay away from all that and go down to the local resturants and get real thai food rather than mcdonalds??

great customer service, great people staying there. dont miss out!

Awesome! this place has felt like my home away from home while on Koh Phangan. Scott and A have alot of knowledge about the island and will make sure that your stay is as comfortable and as fun as possible. Scott kept us stomach's full of beer and A kept our stomach's full of food. Anyone who stays at Baan Tai backcpackers will surely not regret it and will deffinately leave making new friends in Scott and A. They also have the nicest dorm rooms i've ever stayed in throughout my travels of the world!!!!!!! Whenever i wanted fresh towels fresh sheets or a clean shirt to party in the made me feel like i lived there and i was apart of the family.

Room Tip: All rooms here are great whether your in a dorm or have your own room you'll have no issues whatsoever

Nice clean room, good price. Location by the road instead of the beach is the only downside, but it's still close. Scott, the owner, is a nice and helpful guy, your guide to a great party! And close to the great tacoplace!

Everything about this place is excellent. Its one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Whether you are on your own, in a couple or part of a group Scott and Ae will make sure you have a great time. It's impossible not to meet new people in the communal areas and in the dorm rooms. While a very social hostel, the place is still really clean and comfortable and people seem to respect the place. I was here over xmas and Ae single handedly made amazing food for everyone in the hostel, and it felt like a family christmas despite being so far from home. Anything you need or want to do around the island can be done through the hostel too. If you're coming to Ko Phangan... stay here!
