What a wonderful experience! The staff is just incredibly friendly. I really recommend this place for solo backpackers who want to meet others friendly people. You cannot feel homesick with such a team.

I stumbled into this hostel by chance and stayed for the spacious and clean rooms, friendly staff, and vibrant atmosphere. Right when you walk in, you're greeted by the open space with a pool table and bar. Great place to chill and relax before embarking on any adventures you seek on the island. This place is centrally located between the...

Moved here from the "Beach Backpackers" on the other side of the road due to lack of sleep for 3 days. (and a huge disappointment from the beach itself which you don't want to step into) Unlike the former, Baan Tai backpackers is quiet at night and lets you get some good rest, rooms are always well maintained and everything...

The Baan Tai Backpackers is a great hostel! There are 6 bed dorms and they are really big, every room has a clean ensuite bathroom with hot water! The chill out area downstairs is great! You have a pool table, a chill out zone and bar area and as well a cinema room for a chilled evening. The beer pong...

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
