Literally the best hostel I have stayed at. Such a unique experience! You have to stay here for the full moon period it is insane! Met some of the most amazing people and the managers Davin and Alex are great! They party with you like anyone else (obvs still whilst doing their job), until 12am ha The owner David is great and very friendly, just wants you to have fun. You'd be doing yourself an absolute injustice if you do not stay here. Rooms and good & clean and there's security there also.

This is one of the best hostels ive ever said that. Davin and Alex, the owners, and the rest of the staff, create a great atmosphere for having fun! If you're doing full moon you have to stay here, there's no better way to experience it. I stayed in the 42 person room, and while the mattresses aren't top tier the lockers are sizeable, security guards exist to protect your stuff, the location is amazing, and the bar has decent prices. If you're a social person stay here!

Dancing elephant is the best hostel I've ever stayed!! As soon as you walk in the staff makes you feel like home! 40 person dorm is awesome! Every night there's a party and it's insane! From sniping some ginos at beerpong, doing strawpedos, chugging buckets, you will never be bored! Big thank you to Davin and Alex you guys were legendary!

We stayed there for the Full Moon party. Atmosphere is great with various countries. It's ONLY for partying, cause the beds are hard as a rock!

If you want to be in the center of an all-night party, stay here. There is a constant gathering of people drinking and dancing in the street outside the hostel and it's a 5-minute walk from the beach where the Full Moon party is. In the 41-bed mixed dorm, you may have to share a mattress with a stranger. The staff are friendly, but my only complaint is that someone was having a medical emergency during a party and the staff did not do anything except continue to hype up the party.
