Great place to stay on Ko Phangan. It is directly in between Thongsala and Haadrin so you don't have a noisy enviroment, but iy is easy to reach them. There is awesome and cheap Thai-Food directly next to the hostel and good possibilities for Massage, renting a scooter and breakfast in the morning. The owner is a fantastic guy, former tour guide and will help you with everything you need. The recommendations for beaches, sunset spots and food were all fantastic. Highly recommended!


Very good bed, very nice host, a bit more cleaning would make it a nicer place

I really enjoyed my stay at Baan Kai Hostel, the owner Gof is an amazing guy, helping you all the time and always receiving you with a smile as a welcome. The atmosphere is great, the staff is lovely and I felt it like home. Free and good Wi-Fi, breakfast included and there is a kitchen if you want to cook something anytime. Good location, not too far from the beach where is the Full Moon Party and close to the main Pier, Thong Sala. I highly recommend this place, good value for money.


The owner of this hostel is the nicest guy ever and definitely made a massive difference to our phangan experience. The hostel is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy all that the island has to offer with a great location not too far away from Hadrin with the full moon party and really close to the jungle party. The hostel has a great social area with a massive tv with loads of films and tv episodes to chill out, and a kitchen area for cooking your own food. Definitely recommend this hostel!!!


We had an absolutely great stay here. The hostel is spotless, the beds are comfy and showers are hot. There's a communal kitchen for guests to use and the owner supplies bread and milk. The owner is such a lovely man, he took us jungle trekking and on a full day out where we visited view points, temples, got a boat to bottle beach and afterwards went to see elephants and went zip lining. He did this using his own time and not asking for anything in return. Amazing stay here.

Stayed in this hostel over the full moon in February. It was a great place to stay, easy to get to full moon party as well as other locations around the island. The owner was so helpful and laid back, creating a good atmosphere. He assisted in booking transport to our next location as well which was a great help. Would highly recommend staying here. If I return to Koh phangan I would 100% visit again.
