“The place to be in Koh Phangan!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

If you want to meet lots of people to go party with, you should go to Ringside hostel!
The location is very good because it is not to busy but you are still very close to all the party's!
The staff in the hostel were friendly and especially the Thai quy who was behind the bar, he was a partymaker and so friendly! This hostel made our holiday at Koh Phangan!!

I have been to Koh Phangan 4 times.

Deciding to revisit this time around I left things late and my usual place of stay was fully booked. I researched other hostels and wanted a similar location near to the main parties on the island and stumbled across this one.

I can only say good things about this hostel especially the night life. It is busy with room for over 60 people. We stayed in the newly built part. Our room was fantastic and offered a santuary away from the noise of the party so we could sleep when we wanted to but also party when we wanted to. The beach that ran alongside the hostel was very quiet (charm beach) and has an amzing sun set. However, without doubt what sets this place apart is the STAFF. Lena, Jessica, Kong and Paul are the most fantiastic people you could ever meet and I am sure they are the reason for all of the good reviews on hostel world etc. I must also add that the bar was busy every night and the Melon Ball shots became addictive!

If I returned to the Island again, I would without a doubt stay at this hostel. I think it is only a matter of time before everyone hears about it if they havent already.

Best hostel we've stayed in. Everyone was so friendly and helped us with everything from transport to renting a motorbike and even Paul taught me the basics on how to ride it. Clean rooms with a very nice bar downstairs that plays music/movies until late. Would recommend

I rarely do reviews but I really rate Ringside so thought I'd give it some love - there are more reviews on hostelworld if you want a better idea. I have stayed at hostels around the world and this place is in my top 3. Staff (Paul and Jordan) were helpful and friendly, it's very clean and safe. The dorms are good value, they are big, clean and there is no noise. The location is a perfect (super close to the half-moon party, jungle party, pool party etc. and the biggest supermarket on the island is next door), you are 1 minute away from the nicest beach on the island with the most gorgeous sun-set. But my favorite thing is the energy and atmosphere, it was just... fun, the guys that run it made it fun - they throw some awesome parties, which it turns out are kind of famous on the island, and they have different themes on the nights leading up to the half and full moon parties. They made my holiday, definitely my go-to going forward.

Best hostel on the island! Rooms, bathroom and facilities v. clean and great atmosphere. Staff are amazing! Helped us find parties, book travel and gave us great advice for our trip. Extremely chilled out and welcoming owners. Everyone gets together in the bar for pre-party drinks or just to chill out and watch movies on quiet nights so there is always company! Best place I've stayed so far.

Highly recommended!!

Watch out for the FIREBALL SHOT!!!!! :D

Stayed here for 5 nights leading up to and after full moon party. Great vibes room are air con and quiet and we rented motorbikes as well. Staff very helpful would definitely recommend. They were building a roof the day we got here but finished that up real quick. Provided good suggestions about parties and things to do during the day.

This hostel is the best I have found in thailand. Very clean, helpful staff, lots to do and lots of fun. The bar was amazing, and the gal who runs the bar, Jessica is so awesome. She is so friendly and made sure all the guests had an awesome time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
O U R R E P U T A T I O N S P E A K S F O R I T S E L F! If you are visiting this page it's highly likely that you are one of the numerous travelers that have heard about a ''Slumber party''. We are proud that around 50% of our custom arrives through returning guests and referrals (a big thank you to those who have spread the word!) Let us start by confirming that we make no excuses or apologies for the fact that we are the loudest and busiest party hostel on the island, our parties are famous and this is who we are. We strongly believe our commitment to this cause is the reason we are the top rated hostel on Koh Phangan. Simply put, we give people what they want... 1. An unforgettable party 2. Clean and safe living conditions 3. A friendly and warm environment This simple formula has built the foundations of our success! Ringside is an established backpacker party hostel that has been running for years. Do you have the Slumber Party DNA? Here is what we are after: • A willingness to mix with others regardless of gender or nationality • A burning desire to have fun and smile • A respectful, open personality • A strong liver to cope with our head barman! Time and time again Slumber Party is the crowd pulling machine of Ban Tai, when everywhere is quiet Slumber Party is pumping which has quickly led to an enormous reputation and a whole lot of envy from other hostels in the area who fail to recreate our business model year after year. So before you book your accommodation on the island here is a bit of advice from us... Don't let yourself be one of the numerous travelers who drink with us at night having been left disappointed at the unfulfilled promises of other hostels on the island promising some sort of 'atmosphere'. Instead, get it right first time to avoid trying to change hostels half way through your trip! GENERAL PROPERTY INFORMATION You may have been warned by other travelers that Slumber Party is regularly at capacity so early bookings are often ESSENTIAL. Slumber Party sleeps over 60 people a night and offer 4 types of different rooms for your convenience. You can choose from an 8 bed dorm with individual fans for each bed. You also have the option to choose from a 4, 6, and 12-bed dorm all with an air conditioning unit. Our central location offers a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, bars, parties and shops right on our doorstep. You are a mere eighty meters from one of Thailand's premiere beaches not to mention being on the door step of most of the major parties on the island including the half moon, black moon and waterfall parties, we also supply our own taxis to the famous full moon party. OTHER STUFF... • Nightly events including the largest beer pong tournament on the island, wet-t-shirt / short competition, Wet twister, Giant Jenga, Limbo and our very own International Shot Challenge • Motorbike and jeep rentals. • The best Wi-Fi (in all rooms) on the island for FREE • Access to Muay Thai training gym and swimming pools • No curfew • Shower gel in bathroom • Free luggage storage room • Secure Lockers • Our brand new BIG SCREEN to watch all your sports on!! Finally, cleanliness and safety is of paramount importance to our business. We are committed to being the cleanest hostel in Thailand and all dorms and bathrooms are cleaned daily with all beds made with fresh linen. Furthermore, reception is staffed 24 hours per day and safe lockers are available for hire. SLUMBER PARTY ... We know what backpackers in Koh Phangan want!!! Join us for the fun!! * Prices that are confirmed at the time of booking are payable in full upon arrival.
