Great atmosphere, the staff are all great and make an effort to hang out and get to know people. They will go out of their way to help you. Really great place to meet people and party every night. Our room was a little small but all the other rooms looked pretty big, facilities were good, WiFi excellent.

Hey there. thanks for the feedback. Yes, we are in Ban Tai, which is home to every major party on Koh Phangan except for the Full moon Party. Halfmoon Festival, Jungle Experience, Black Moon Culture, Waterfall Party, Maya Party, Loi Lay Floating Bar Party are all 5 minutes from our hostel. Full Moon Beach is only a 10-15 minute taxi ride from the hostel. Being in Ban Tai, I believe you get a better overall quality of sleep and is also a better base for exploring this beautiful island.

Perfect location for the half moon party. Common area was really sociable and friendly. Good wi-fi and strong air-con. Only negative - not enough showers and toilets for everyone

Hey, thanks for reviewing us and we're glad you had a great time. Halfmoon when you were was a new record with 120 guests. Great atmosphere and lots of fun. It was a pleasure hosting the fun and a great pre-party to say the least. Sorry about the toilet situation. We were putting up a new roof for our back up showers and toilets and we didn't get to finish it, and we didn't expect so many people to come! The roof is all good so there should be enough showers next time. Safe travels!

Great great place run by some great characters. Worth every baht. The atmosphere here over the full moon time with the pre drinking was so much fun, and was a great way to meet others and head out to the parties. It's somehow kept clean even after the place gets crazy at night with all the people drinking. Great place overall. I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks

Best hostel I have been to whilst traveling Asia and south America. Rooms are good with comfy beds and the aircon was great. the common areas are fantastic and makes it easy to meet others. The staff and the atmosphere is the best aspect. Super fun, helpful staff and the pre-parties Nomad threw were great fun. I had more fun with the hostel's pre-party than the actual parties, even full moon. Close to everything. 10 mins to full moon. Not being in Had rin was better as I slept well. Cheers.

Had a great time here, planned to stay a couple of nights, ended up staying 6. Great atmosphere every night as the owner brings his other hostel here. Taxi to the parties at midnight every night. So cheap during non-full moon party time but much more expensive for that is only criticism

Stayed there for full moon party, overall the atmosphere was great! Really like a party hostel. Only complaint is that the toilet is not very clean.

Very social hostel, rooms are nice and air conditioned. Only down side is its a bit far from full moon beach but if you're trying to save I'd avoid full moon all together. Wallet has been destroyed, best time though.

Hey bro, thanks for the comments. Yes, full moon period is the most expensive time of the month on Koh Phangan. As previously noted, we are close to every party except full moon. Half Moon Festival and Jungle Experience are right behind us in the BanTai Jungle. Our location is also a better base for exploring Koh Phangan than Haad Rin (Full Moon Beach). Again, thanks for the remarks and all the best.

Good atmosphere and staff were good fun. Wifi isn't good which could be an improvement to look at.

Sweet hostel. Couldn't have picked a better hostel, especially being a solo traveler. Very fun, welcoming staff. There is a chilled atmosphere throughout the day and it gets a bit crazy at night with beer pong, flip cup and what not with the other guests and staff. Very easy to meet others and head off to the parties together. Great atmosphere. Overall great vibe. Highly

We stayed here recently for three nights, it was pretty quiet when we were there but that's because it's low season, which suited us fine. Staff were helpful with booking onward transport and we felt quite welcome, free glass of water and homemade pizza bread. There are a few cheap restaurants in the area and the beach is ok, but you can rent a bike very cheaply to get around. TV didn't seem to work in the TV room unfortunately.

Hello, thanks for your comments. Yes, you came when there was no half moon or full moon party, so it's pretty much dead everywhere on Koh Phangan, but that's just an opportunity to go and explore deserted beaches etc. The TV does work, but it's only for watching movies via a thumb drive. anyhow, thanks again. Safe travels!

The vibe of this hostel is incredible. Stayed for the FMP and it was the best. The staff and the owners create a very warm and lively environment which was great for young travelers like myself. The pre-parties the hostel put on were fun than the actual Koh Pangan parties themselves. Highly recommend.
