It was a great stay. The best part about the accommodation is the fisherman's restaurant right across the street. Otherwise you need a scooter or have to put up with incredibly expensive taxi fares in order to get around. The beach right by the hostel isn't the greatest.

Best hostel staff I have met, if you want a social hostel this is perfect.

cheers Mark, amazing how your opinion is so much different from the last review despite the fact that you stayed in the same room hmmmmm??...?

This hostel was great for socializing and having fun/partying but other than that its pretty sub-par. I stayed in the non-aircon room and it was really cramped and stinky and noisy but maybe the aircon rooms are nicer.

Owner Comment (Hide)
the air conditioned rooms are much nicer, the booking description for our basic fan dorm is just that BASIC, that is also why it is so cheap compared to the other dorms with more luxury, again as we state on check in should you have any issues with your room just tell staff and we can sort them, waiting until you leave to complain on the internet is helpful for no one

Great facilities - a computer, Xbox, lots of movies to choose from. Scott the manager was super friendly and always willing to help us out. Around 10 minutes to the full moon party beach, tuktuk costs 100baht per person - easy to get there and also nice staying away from the noise. Ensuite bathrooms were great.

We were staying in baantai backpackers during full moon april 2014 and we enjoyed our stay here to the fullest. I would recommend it to everybody. We stayed here for 4 nights, and you can relax here, socialize here and preparty very well here. The staff is amazing and very friendly and welcoming. Scott is a nice, very helpfull owner and together with nataree and harry they managed to make everybody enjoy their stay. Harry even went to the jungle party and fullmoon with us. :)

Had a fantastic time here during Songkran and Full Moon Party! Scott is incredibly welcoming and there was a great group of people staying here. We stayed in the 6-bed female dorm, beds were comfy, large, and the room had a great ensuite bathroom!

If you are young and want a to make lots of friends to go to a moon party then baan Thai is perfect. It's has a really chilled sociable atmosphere. We are sad we didn't get to meet the owner Scott (who are apparently is really cool) but Harry was so sweet and helpful! Also the Thai lady behind the desk was soo lovely and makes great food!!!!

Stayed here during full moon party in march. The atmosphere is great, a nice place to hang around and meet fellow travelers. Scott (the guy who runs the place) is great and can help you with everything, like hiring scooters, transport to the different parties etc. Loved it and would definately concider staying there again!

Great place to stay for the half moon party! Scott knows how to get the pre drinks started, and is extremely helpful for info on getting to and from the island. This is the place to stay if you don't fancy a tuk-tuk back to haad rin after a huge night... you can stumble home on a 20min walk.
