The staff are super friendly and outgoing - everyone hangs out at the cozy bar and front porch which leads to a lovely communal atmosphere - after a couple of days you pretty much know all guests of the hostel and most of them end up hanging out together! The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms clean and pretty luxurious for...

Stayed here with 5 other friends and we all loved it! The staff we great, the people were great and the location was great. Would highly recommend staying here if you like to socialise and have a good time! But also good if you just want to chill out, as noise definitely doesn't travel up to the dorms

This is a really laidback, modest but great hostel. I stayed in a 6 person female a/c dorm. The rooms are well maintained clean. What makes this place incredible is the staff. They make a huge effort to make everyone happy, they took me out to some of the best beaches and bars. My time on this island would have...

Baan Tai Backpackers is in the perfect location, close enough to the craziness of Had Rin beach whilst still within easy reach to all the beautiful hotspots Koh Phangan has to offer. The best thing about this hostel is the staff. As soon as you arrive, you are welcomed with a positive vibe and feel as though you already have...

My Girlfriend and myself strayed here for 4 nights and i have nothing bad to say. The guys running the place are genuinely nice people and made us feel extremely welcome.

The staff at Baan Tai is incredible. They really show you that their sole aim is to make sure that you have the best possible experience. From a schedule of activities for all guests before the Half Moon Party to get to know one another, to an unsolicited ride to the ferry so that we wouldn't miss it, they go...

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
