DO NOT RENT A MOTORBIKE. You'll think you need one. Don't. It's a known scam, and detracted from my experience to inevitably have to pay "for the repairs", & then be told by the hostel staff that it's a known scam. Why is it offered as a service at the hostel then? Are they in on it and profit too?...

The location is pretty good, convenient and they do provide motorbike rental. You could easily explore the island, get to beautiful beaches where you could chill and recharge your energy on the daytime before heading to the parties at night. The owner treat us as friends more than a guest. We had the best party with all the guests and...

What makes Baan Tai Backpackers stand out for me was the quality of the staff they have working here. Friendly, helpful and keen to involve you in the life of the hostel. They made the Full Moon experience one to relish. In other hostels the staff stick to their own, here the European/Australian staff and management treat you like friends....

The staff especially Lydia and Triston were so accommodating taking us around the island to amazing view point and beach clubs etc.This was my first stay at a hostel and was little apprehensive but turned out to be the best week of my travels. It was so comfortable and homely. Alex and the rest of the guys always made sure...

It is one of the best hostels I have ever been to. The staff and the owners are extremely nice and they can go a long way to help you. My iPhone broke and one of the guys even offered to contact his own friend to help me to fix it. The staff are always there to help, they will...

My sister and I stayed here during the low season and loved it. The people who ran the hostel were the highlight. The manager (whose name I never got) was very friendly and emitted great vibes. Alex was so nice and extremely helpful. He made me feel very welcomed. And Lydia is possibly the coolest chick on the island. We...

We went early July, and they were about 10 people that were checked in. Not too sure when other reviewers were at this hostel, but this hostel was empty, even for the black moon party. We had a dorm to ourselves (excluding the one member of staff) Most evenings and even some staff went over the road to ECHO BEACH...

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
