Had a wonderful stay here during the week of Half Moon Festival! The staff manages to make this a well organized and clean place with fun and very social pre-parties. Highly recommend staying for a few nights before one of the big parties to explore the beautiful island!

Was at the Nomad House for full moon and it was amazing! It was one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. The atmosphere! The pre-parties at the hostel with all the guests was so much fun. The hostel has a well priced bar with great specials and the music selection was awesome. Being American it was nice to be able to play beer pong and flip cup again. The hostel staff are a particular highlight as well. They are fun, loving people and made sure everyone's needs was met. 1000% recommend

This is a really nice and fun hostel. Only 2 issues: the air conditioning was freezing at first (then I tripped an out of the way circuit breaker when i adjusted the temperature). Second is that their bar prices are quite expensive. Many people ended up bringing in outside beer because even if you pay their higher prices, they sometimes serve warm beer. Those are minor issues so I still recommend this place.

It is a very good hostel, staff very friendly, one of cleanest host I've been in Thailand, they make your staying there better as they make nice warm up like beerpongs, cheap drinking before main parties. Even though it's far from the Full moon party beach I super recommend this hostel, easy to get there!

Staff here are super friendly and helped us out so much with getting around the island. We stayed for 5 days on the week of half moon party, it was really sociable, the hostel provided free uv paint and even a few shots. Great bar, comfortable dorms with good air con, everything you could want on Koh Phangan!

Stayed there for the Full moon party, nice stay, slept in the 18 people dorm. It was ok, it's what you expect for a dorm. Place was clean.

A nice place to stay on Baan Tai, away from the insanity of Haad Rin.. cool overall vibe and most of the staff were fun to interact with.

Nice hostel. A ways from the full moon party, but it's no problem getting there that night, and it means you don't have to endure chaos the rest of your stay. They have a nice movie room with a comfy couch and their pizza buffet is super delicious and worth every penny. Only complaints, the beds were quite noisy and many of the sinks never had soap. Otherwise a good place to stay.

Sorry about the soap! We will be sure to take care of that hence forth. some of the beds are squeaky, but we are in the process of bolting all of them into walls so there shouldn't be any more problems. All the best!

Loved it as stayed over the Full Moon Party. Was very expensive as was everywhere else on the Island but had fun. The rooms had lockers and staff were really friendly. Even though this was a party hostel I still slept really well.

Excellent hostel, staff are really cool, Yuki and guys are nice people. My only concern is about the taxi lady, she is always trying to take advantage from the people. Good place for solo travellers, everyday has something to do in the bar. Wifi could be better. I definitely recomment this place in Koh Phangan.

Hey bra, thanks for taking part and being your awesome self and helping us make a great atmosphere here. it was a pleasure having ya here. New Year was a new record for us capacity wise with the addition of a few dorms. The wifi was a bit of an issue with all the people staying here draining it. We are adding new routers and boosters to fix this issue. Best wishes, brotha.

Stayed here for new years, had a great time. Definitely a party hostel but the staff are great and have good events planned every night

While the atmosphere was good and the staff wonderful and kind (Yuki&Friends), I must say that the double bedroom was far from expectations. Was suprised to find out that the hut was quite far from the main place & lobby, had no WIFI, no aircon, no hot water, no water flush (used a bucket). All my neighbours were unhappy too. Internet was shaky and unstable in the main lobby too. Seems like the dormitories had better facilities, anyway, the private rooms are definitely NOT worth the money paid.

Hey buddy, sorry you feel that way about your stay. We're officially shutting down these double bed privates after this New Year experience. Just to share our side, we did explain in the room description that it is right across the hostel by the beach with a very basic set up. Our dorms our much nicer, which is why the price for the private was the same price as our cheapest dorm during the New Year. Sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We're always improving and we appreciate the criticism.

I stayed at nomads with my friend during new years and we both enjoyed our stay very much. There was pre party before all the big parties and transportation to the parties with all from the hostel. And a restaurant just next door which is both cheap and delicious. A bit pricy during new years, but an Awsome hostel, would certainly stay again
