- 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.

We stayed here for 5 days during over one of the
Full Moon parties and our stay was awesome!! It's a great place to meet other travelers and there always people to go out at night with. The owner Scott is great and he had all the advice on where to go for the best experience. Definently stay here!
