What can I say... From the moment I stepped through the door it was one of the best hostel experiences I have had. Scott, the owner was really friendly and helpful, the place was welcoming, clean and sociable and in perfect distance from any of the party's we went to. You could hire mopeds from the hostel for 150 baht per day hassle free and taxis easy and accessible any time of the day.
Beds were comfy and rooms were well kept and clean with option if AC if you preferred. You can't take your own alcohol because there's a bar in the hostel but that didn't matter because drinks were so cheap. The vodka and cokes were my life for 5 days. If I had to say one bad thing it would be that the beach directly opposite wasn't the best for a day out at the beach but there are beautiful beaches within 10/20 minutes so we got mopeds there most days.
Overall I would definitely go back here if I was to do full moon again. Met some lovely people and had a crazy great few days in koh phanghan!

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.
