NOTE: WE ARE IN BAAN TAI NOT HAAD RIN!
Haad Rin is where the Full Moon Party takes place; we are a 15 minute drive away to the Full Moon Party beach via taxi. However, if you’re looking to party, Baan Tai is arguably the better spot to be on the island! We’re within walking distance/a very short taxi ride – 5 mins – to the HALF MOON, JUNGLE EXPERIENCE, MAYA, SHIVA MOON and BLACK MOON parties in the Baan Tai jungles, as well as within walking distance to the weekly LOI LAY FLOATING BAR PARTY every Sunday!
We like to have fun at the hostel, and have a great, comfy and spacious lounge room with a fully-stocked bar that’s perfect for both pre-parties and chilling out on those hazy days afterwards!
Koh Phangan is famous for its parties, but also has a bucketload of other reasons to prolong your stay beyond Full Moon or Half Moon. Rent a scooter from us and explore at your own pace (everything from waterfalls, unspoilt jungle interior, countless beautiful beaches and special hidden gems), or go jet-ski-ing, zip-lining, elephant trekking, boat-tripping, or try a Muay Thai class and even a sushi-making class at the restaurant next door… the list is endless!! We want you to have the best experience possible, so if there’s anything you want to do but don’t know about, then please ask us!
THINGS TO NOTE!

Thanks for your cooperation!
All over the age of 18 are welcome, but please be aware that we do cater to a younger crowd (usually under 35s) who like to party (including in the hostel lounge room for pre-parties), and who might also be returning home a little drunk at night-time!
