WE ARE THE BEST LOCATION FOR ALL THE BAAN TAI JUNGLE PARTIES, INCLUDING HALF MOON FESTIVAL, BLACK MOON AND JUNGLE EXPERIENCE!**

Koh Phangan’s best-loved Western-run hostel for backpackers, voted #1 on Trip Advisor! All our dorms and private rooms are bright and airy, equipped with A/C, large ensuite bathroom with hot water shower, and large private terrace complete with hammock! Our huge newly renovated bar is also famous for its pre-parties - and guests can also enjoy our brand-new A/C cinema room! We're a small hostel (only room for 42!), so getting to know people is guaranteed. In fact, our friendly, sociable environment is one of the things we're most proud of. We really care about your time spent with us, and will treat you like family!

We also have...

1) One of the best hostel pre-party atmospheres on the island with neon, black lights, drinking games, beer pong competitions and free body paint before every big event!

2) Scooter hire – includes free lesson on the back roads if you haven’t ridden before!

3) Friendly and knowledgeable staff

4) Tour desk for all trips and activities on the island, plus onward travel tickets

6) Huge open bar and lounge to get drunk and silly in (don’t forget to sign our walls!), with a range of Designer Buckets and Designer Shots to knock your block off!

7) Hammocks on every dorm terrace

8) All-day breakfasts and a range of home-cooked goodies

9) CCTV and lockers t use for free

10) The Baan Tai Backpacker Island Tour - don't miss out!

We're situated in Baan Tai, which is exactly the area you want to stay in for all the island's famous jungle parties, including Half Moon Festival, Maya, Jungle Expererience, Sramanora Waterfall Party and Shiva Moon. We're also within walking distance to Black Moon, Baan Sabai and Loi Lay floating bar party which is on every Sunday night and hosts some of the best DJs worldwide. We're a 15 minute drive to Haad Rin for Full Moon.

Baan Tai is also smack bang in the middle of Haad Rin and Thong Sala - the island's main town and pier, so we're a really great base to explore the rest of the island from. You can rent mopeds from us, and we'll give you all our hot tips for the best beaches, waterfalls and viewpoints!

We can also book and advise on all kinds of activities for you - including Angthong Marine Park, Slip n Fly Waterpark. quadbiking, ziplining, kitesurfing, wakeboarding, jewellery making, cooking/Muay Thai/yoga classes and much, much more!

Choose from our range of comfortable, bright, airy and whistle-clean rooms: We’ve got 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 large private balcony (either sea or jungle view) complete with hammock! We also have a cheaper basic six-bed fan dorm on ground level, which also has its own private bathroom with cold water shower - be aware, though, that the name says it all (*BASIC!!!!*). There's really not too much room in here, and it's also right next to the lounge/bar so can sometimes be noisy.
