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 own private bathroom with hot water shower (but no balcony!). We are situated directly opposite Baan Tai Beach, and offer free WiFi throughout the building.

NOTE: WE ARE IN BAAN TAI NOT HAAD RIN! HAAD RIN IS WHERE THE FULL MOON PARTY TAKES PLACE, BUT WE ARE A 15 MINUTE DRIVE AWAY TO HAAD RIN BEACH VIA TAXI (COSTS 100 BAHT ONE WAY). HOWEVER, IF YOU”RE LOOKING TO PARTY, BAAN TAI IS ARGUABLY THE BETTER SPOT TO BE ON THE ISLAND! We’re within walking distance to the HALF MOON, LOI LAY FLOATING BAR PARTY, JUNGLE EXPERIENCE, MAYA, KU CLUB (great for drum and bass!) and a very short taxi ride to the BLACK MOON PARTY (boasts an epic panoramic view over to Samui from one of the summits of the Baan Tai jungle!). We like to have fun at the hostel, and have a great, comfy and spacious lounge room with a big screen, Xbox and fully-stocked bar that’s perfect for pre-partying, as well as a huge range of movies to choose from for 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 and little villages, beautiful beaches, stunning secret viewpoints ), 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!

IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE READ CONDITIONS FULLY! YOUR DEPOSIT IS WHAT YOU PAY HOSTELWORLD, AND IT WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR FULL BALANCE DUE TO US ON ARRIVAL! YOU'LL NEED TO PAY THIS TO US IN CASH (THAI BAHT ONLY!) SINCE WE DO NOT HAVE A CREDIT CARD MACHINE.

IF YOU REALISE YOU’RE GOING TO ARRIVE A DAY LATE, THEN YOU MUST CONTACT OUR STAFF BEFOREHAND!! FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN YOU LOSING YOUR BOOKING, AS WELL AS ANY DEPOSIT MADE THROUGH HOSTELWORLD.

FULL MOON AND CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR BOOKINGS!! – PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING!

WE REQUIRE A MINIMUM STAY OF FOUR NIGHTS OVER FULL MOON, AND SEVEN NIGHTS OVER CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR.

EVEN IF YOU BOOK THESE DATES VIA HOSTELWORLD, YOU MUST ALSO EMAIL US DIRECTLY (INFO@BAANTAI-BACKPACKERS.COM) TO CONFIRM AND ALSO PAY US A DEPOSIT EQUIVALENT TO YOUR FIRST NIGHT'S STAY (VIA PAYPAL PLEASE, AND IN THE LOCAL CURRENCY OF THAI BAHT). PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS DEPOSIT PAYMENT MUST GET TO US AT THE LATEST ONE WEEK BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL. IF YOU HAVE NOT MADE CONTACT, REPLIED TO OUR EMAILS, OR MADE YOUR DEPOSIT PAYMENT BY THIS TIME, YOUR BOOKING WILL BE CANCELLED.
