I've stayed in a lot of hostels during my travels and this has got to be among the best. I arrived for the full moon with my friends and what was originally planned to be a 5 day stay turned into almost a month. The bar is right at the entrance so be careful if you arrive between 8-9; happy...

Not even sure where to begin. When they say there's only so much you can blame on the full moon, the rest you can definitely blame on buckets and baan tai backpackers. The fun truly never ends at this place. To say the staff was accommodating and personable would be an understatement. Every night they'd host a pre-game, ensuring easy...

Our plan in Southern Thailand was to visit Koh Phangan for 3 days, then head over to Ao Nang and Phi Phi. 10 minutes into a conversation with Max. - we cancelled our plans to Ao Nang and make the most of our week at Koh Phangan. The hosts - Max, Nick, Alex, and Tizi were just amazing and had...

We literally got stock in this awesome place. May because we missed the check out every day but never the happy hour or because it's the perfect place to stay forever. The beds are comfortable, the rooms and toilets big and clean and when you have a lil luck you get a lovely balcony. Also we loved the movieroom (so...

The absolute most fun hostel I've stayed in!! Came to Koh Phangan for full moon, planning on being on the island for about a week, and ended up staying in this hostel for over two weeks! The entire staff, from the bartenders to the management to the maid, are so incredibly helpful and friendly! They make you feel so welcome,...

I absolutely love this hostel!! Stayed there last year for a few weeks and again this year, and would come back every year if I could. The location is perfect, not too crazy and busy like haad rin but very accessible to the rest of the island so you can see all of the other hot spots. The staff -...

Baan Tai Backpackers is one of the best hostels I've been to. Very clean, nice rooms and a very reasonable price. I was the first one to try their new food menu and it did not dissapoint! Make sure to try the club sandwich. The staff is so friendly and helpful, they'll give you great tips about the island.

That's all you need in a hostel really. About the hostel itself- -Really cozy place to chill and get to know others. -Located right in the center of the island next to all the party places. -Clean specious rooms with AC and good mattresses (!) But the best part was definitely the staff. They were so friendly and did such...

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
