Property Information:

At 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!

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!

    The ladies running Baan Tai are top notch! Immediately felt welcome by warm smiles and great advice for a first-timer to Ko Phagnan! They hooked me up with a great motorbike rental and I had an unbelievable time! Cheers to Baan Tai Backpackers... I will definitely return!

This property has a 1 day cancellation policy.
Failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night of your stay, unless otherwise stated below (see 'Things to Note' information).

Things to Note

All bookings over full moon (any month) and peak season (Christmas/New Year) will require a room deposit made to us via paypal equal to your first two nights' stay. We will email you once your booking comes through with our paypal details. Deposits to us must be received two weeks before your arrival at the latest (or within 48 hours in the case of last minute bookings), and will be deducted from your final balance owing to us on arrival. If deposit payments aren't received, or you do not respond to our emails by this time, your booking will be cancelled. You must also contact us if you’re going to be a day late! Failure to turn up will result in loss of booking and deposit, no exceptions! If you’re going to be arriving very early in the morning (off the night boat blinking into the daylight at 6am-ish! – OR very late at night), then please also let us know in advance. CASH ONLY PLEASE! We have no credit card machine on site, so all payments must be made to us in cash. There's an ATM machine just a two minute walk away from us outside the 7-11. Age Restriction: No Guests over 40 years of age Permitted as we cater to young travellers who like to go out partying and tend to return a little drunk at night time.
