About Baan Tai - Backpackers

We offer a range of high quality room types to suit: six-bed dorms (including one female-only), double private rooms and a private twin room. All rooms (including dorms) are air-conditioned, and have their own private bathroom with hot water shower plus private balcony (either sea or jungle view). We also have a cheaper basic six-bed fan dorm on ground level, which also has its own private bathroom with cold water shower (but no balcony!). We are situated directly opposite Baan Tai Beach (and the famous Fisherman’s Restaurant!). We also have…………………………………………………………………………………………………

1) One of the best hostel party atmospheres on the island!
2) Scooter hire – includes free lesson on the back roads if you haven’t ridden before!
3) Friendly and knowledgeable staff who can tell you where to go on them!
4) Onward travel tickets (yeah, yeah – like you wanna leave us!).
5) Strong, cheap drinks at the bar, including Tristan’s very own ‘Dirty Bucket’!
6) Comfy and spacious lounge room to get drunk and silly in (don’t forget to sign our walls!), and also chill out in with a movie - or just borrow a book from our shelf!
7) Secure lockers to use for free!
8) Free WiFi all through the building and in every room!

Come stay with us and enjoy Koh Phangan to the max!


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!


Reception open daily from 9am daily till late, we're very flexible in accommodating all travellers at nearly all hours - but please let us know if you're going to be arriving before 9am or after 9pm. Young children not permitted. No drugs. Minimum stays required for holidays and full moon parties (4-5 nights full moon, 7 nights Christmas/New Year.
If a customer is arriving a day late they must contact staff. Failure to contact staff will result in loss of room/bed as they are in high demand.
ALL FULL MOON AND NEW YEAR BOOKINGS MUST BE CONFIRMED VIA EMAIL WITH STAFF. FAILURE WILL RESULT IN LOSS OF BOOKING NO EXCEPTIONS! A deposit for full moon and New Year bookings must also be made directly with us via paypal, as we have had too many no-shows over the past few months. Deposit equal to first night's stay, and paid in local currency of thai baht. If you have not made contact, replied to our emails or payment one week prior to arrival booking will be cancelled. 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!
