If you want a place to make lots of new friends and stay in a buzzing and friendly atmosphere then this is the place for you. The owner Gof is a super guy and so helpful. He took everyone out on little group trips and BBQs. Great place especially if your looking to go to the full moon party and want to meet people!

A good distance away from Haad Rin, however it is so easy to get a taxi to/from there. Took probably about 10 minutes by taxi. Goff, the hostel owner, is so lovely and helpful. He made our stay here! He was more than happy to tell us the best places to visit. There is also a wide variety of movies in the communal area. I would definitely recommend staying here!

The owner Gof is without any doubt the best one I had during my trip. He organizes trips and bbq's free of extra charge (of course you pay for the costs), and he creates a social atmosphere, is friendly and nice to chat with. The common area is very relaxing when hungover with lots of movies and tv series.

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!

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.
