Property Information:

**DANCING ELEPHANT HOSTEL** was the very FIRST hostel, 6 years ago to hit Haad Rin. The home of the monthly Full Moon Party!!! We are in the heart of the famous Full Moon Village, a bustling, multi-cultural party spot.

Surrounded by beautiful beaches and people. Only a 1 minute jog from the actual Full Moon Party putting you in the best location possible!


Run by individual people from England, Sweden, Australia and the crazy owner David from France. We will give a great contrast of experience, worldwide knowledge and of course a bloody good party!


We provide a clean and safe hostel, with vibrant character and colourful charm like no other you will visit in Asia.
A place you can arrive on your own or with friends and call home straight away.
At the end of the day ‘Dancing Elephant is a mixing bowl, you are the ingredients and the recipe is always tasty’


We have four funky big dorms, which we promise you get a quiet and good night’s sleep in. Most importantly they are full of exciting, energetic party people that end up like your family.

We do fill up fast so booking in advance is advised!


During Full Moon week we are the crazy ‘Street Party’, the same original ‘Street Party’ that makes us what we are today. Hundreds of party people from all countries, dancing with buckets in there hand to international guest DJ’s.


Also we run warm up parties for all the major events on the island, organising cheap taxis to get you there safely and your tickets to get you in quick… Who likes to wait?


Get out of bed, hang overs aren’t that bad!!! There are many cool things to do in the day which are whole lot better with 50 - 100 bunk mates all sliding and flying into water, seeing sunsets on booze cruises and much, much more.


Our travel desk will help you with your onwards travel, it is run by experienced travellers who always try to get you the best deal they can. Normally people arrive with 1-5 in there group and leave with many more.

    Dancing Elephant has the friendliest staff and best party atmosphere of any hostel I have stayed in so far in Thailand. The location is right next to the beach and they hold the best street party around. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone coming to Koh Phangan. Will be very sad to leave.
