“Just don't bother going anywhere else”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

- in terms of staying somewhere for the party vibes of the island, this place is exactly what you need. Great place to meet people, be hungover (hundreds of films) pre drink -alcohol is super cheap and owner makes great cocktails! The owner is super laid back, and the hostel literally offers anything you could possibly need ! Just literally don't even bother going anywhere else !

Stayed here during the halfmoon festival. Had a great time, met loads of people and scott is amazing and helpfull. Aaa makes the best toasties in the world. On the opposite of the road there is a great restaurant. You can rent a scooter for only 150B for 24hrs and see the rest of koh pangnan. We loved it! X Eline & Imke

I booked two nights just after Black Moon and ended up staying another two. Even though the place was pretty quiet (as there were no big parties on) and it's in a slightly quieter part of the island (although still convenient!), there was a great crew there and Scott and A made everyone feel very comfortable. Heaps of South Park and The Simpsons available to help with your hangover, as well as cheap/tasty homemade food and cheap/strong hair of the dog.

The atmosphere at Baan Tai is wonderful super laid back. Scott the owner is super helpful and so is A (sp?) the Thai woman that works there. I was there over the half moon party and the "pre-party" at the hostel was great! Free paint, great music, and a fun atmosphere. I had almost as much fun there as at the half moon itself!
The rooms are super clean, the shower is hot, the A/C is AMAZING, and besides the half moon party night it was very quiet.

I stayed here over the full moon. Staff were lovely and friendly, just a little bit deaf. I felt able to ask anything and all questions were answered.

It is a good hostel!

Stayed here over New Years, Scott and the crew made each night amazing! Not only the nights though, during the day it was nice to just chill out meeting lots of people. Rooms were great, beds are nice and the air con is cold! I would defiantly recommend this place to anyone!

One of Koh Phangan's best-loved Western-run hostels for backpackers!

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 a 15 minute drive to Haad Rin for Full Moon.
