“Amazing!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Friendly staff,, clean rooms, and great people. I know it's near the water and has a breeze but more A/C in the lobby would be nice. Met some great people and the half moon was well organized, but a little quiet surprisingly. Great place to stay!

What a place. My friends and i had so much fun here with all of the other guest and of course scott. He was a great host, told us where to get great meals and cheap! Set up pre party drinking games and the thai woman working for him helped arrange boat tickets for us to get over to koh tao. Im missing this place already

been meaning to write this for some time now, had my best experience traveling through asia with these guys, dorms are big clean and super comfortable, spent a few days hungover not leaving the room and was so glad for the air conditioning, the common area was great for chatting and pre drinking with other guests, drinks are cheap in the bar so load up here before heading to the parties, staff were really helpful about which parties are better then others and we hit up a few in the area that were better then full moon imo, totally recommend this place to anyone wanting to have fun and meet others, if you are not social I wouldn't come here

Room Tip: air conditioning

You won't find many betters hostels. The room was clean/really well maintained, the facilities are great, the location is ideal (especially for half moon/jungle party) and the messages on the wall are a nice touch.

The staff make the hostel though. Scott and his staff were incredibly accommodating from the second we walked through the door and this made all the difference.

Baan tai backpackers is an awesome hostel. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the food is good, the common room is nice, you can book tours et cetera... but the best parts are the vibe and the people. During the day, there is a laid back vibe (party recovering) and during night the partymode is on!!

The hostel attracts so many fun people, loved our dutch/canadian female dorm 203! Celebrating Songkran, going to the jungle party and going to the full moon party with almost everyone staying in the hostel was so much fun and a not to miss experience in Thailand.

Scott, you make the hostel an amazing place to stay!! Everything was so well organized. When there was a problem with the ladder of the bed, I told Scott and he fixed it in 5 minutes.

Thank you Scott and the rest of the staff for our awesome stay in Baan Tai Backpackers!! I definitely will be back someday :)

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!

This backpackers is the center of where your fun will start on Koh Phangan! Short distance to the Jungle Party and Full Moon.Best restaurant across the road on Koh Phangan! Scott and his staff are always eager to help be it places to see or things to do,they can even set you up with a scooter to get you around the island(this is a must do). I had the best time doing the pre party before heading off to the Full Moon Party! No complaints here at all....I'll be coming back!

Room Tip: All rooms are great but get in early!

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 a 15 minute drive to Haad Rin for Full Moon.
