Property Information:

Dancing Elephant HQ hostel is part of the Dancing Elephant #1 party hostel.
Book here or there you will have the same service, security, fun and cleanliness.
HQ has been specially designed for the young hip backpacker who loves to party.
Centrally located in the heart of Haad Rin village, we are surrounded by shops, restaurants, massage parlors.... Our hostel is only a 2 min walk away from the full moon party, beaches and the pier but far enough so that you can still get a great night’s sleep
Our dorms are air conditioned, comfortable and have good sized mattresses. In case you are traveling as a couple we also have double beds that you can book. All our beds in HQ, singles and doubles, are equipped with electric plugs and personal psyche light. With a capacity of 40 HQ is a fantastic place to meet new friends
The HQ bar hosts warm up street parties all through full moon week and is the perfect way to start off a fantastic night of revelry.
Every night during the Full moon week, 1, 2 up to 3 DJ will entertain you as nowhere on the island!

    I must say I have mixed feelings about the Dancing Elephant. If you like to party EVERY DAY it's probably one of the best choices. They have a bar with loud music and a very social atmosphere. But if you would like to sleep one of those 5 obligatory nights - it's impossible. The stuff is so so. Some (especially guy on the front desk and the girl by travel office) are really nice and always ready to help. The other don't speak English and they even don't TRY to understand you. Not enough WCs.
