Rooms were good and clean and there's also a cool movie room in the hostel. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone who... More

The dorms are very nice, clean and cozy and the vibe in the lobby&bar is amazing. But most important is the friendly stuff, that make you feel a part of one big family. The price is very decent and was worth every bhat. Simply LOVED IT. Highly recommend 🙂

I had a great time at this hostel- it was really hard for me to leave haha The rooms were in really good condition and always clean. For me that makes a huge difference staying in a dorm. And with a lot of light coming in from the balcony (room204) it felt more like a proper hotel! Also only 6... More

Maybe is a good place to stay when is full, otherwise is a boring place. Is too expensive for the avarage prices in this area and they dont have anything special. And i had a problem there a dog that belong to the hostel damaged my shoes and they didnt do anything about!!!

I backpacked Thailand for around 2 months and this hostel was by far the best experience I've had. From the second I walked in I immediately felt like family. Pregames every night before going out in the common room and super easy to meet new travelers. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and what to do. I... More

Couldn't have hoped for a better experience at Baan Tai Backpackers, everyone was so welcoming and kind. By the end of my stay I had bonded and made such good friends with all the crew, that I didn't wanna leave! I moved on to the other islands but ended up coming back because I missed my koh phangyan family! Awesome... More

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
