"Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of drinking ages...if you are heading to Koh Phangan then you MUST stay at Ringside!!! It is the ultimate Hostel experience with AMAZING staff with great info and tips on the Island (ringside mango tour is a must-great way to get to know everyone) as well as some serious Bar skills (ringsides pre party sessions won't be topped). The Hostel is also super clean and to get the best experience the 16 bed is the dorm to be in.

The staff at ringside are awesome and will sort you out with everything you need to know to make the most out of your stay. Do the tour of the island with then too. Well worth the money!

Great hostel...perfect atmosphere, laid back, helpful and friendly staff, who make you feel welcome and become your friend's almost instantly. It is in the ideal location on the island with everything you need within walking distance. Excellent value for money, we even extended our stay we enjoyed it that much! If you are heading to Ko Phangan on your travels , look no further than Ringside... Solid 10/10 from me!!

Great hostel, great staff, all super funny and helpful - even if you need one of them to kill a cockroach!!! Feels like a big family when you're staying there.. have fun and don't miss Crazy Mango Tour, nothing actually crazy about it, but it's a great opportunity to meet other people and go around the island! Ah! And have fun at the water park!

I loved ringside! Firstly the staff were so lovely and welcoming, and incredibly helpful too! Bar out the front where all the backpackers can chill so it's nice and sociable! Clean and affordable as we stayed in low season! Quite far from the main beach but 100bhat in a taxi each isn't too bad to get there! I couldn't recommend it enough! Thank you so much for our brilliant stay!

Definitely a party hostel! If you want to party every night, meet good people and have a lot of fun along the way this is definitely a pretty good option. On the other hand, if you don't want to drink a lot and get some sleep, this is probably not the place for you!

Absolutely the place to be!!! Craziest party hostel ever! Brings out your inner flipcup champion and table dancer whether you want it or not ;) Ringside has a great genuine and welcoming atmosphere, and ofcourse totally awesome sexy ass staff! All of this combined with clean facilities and tasty BBQ:s, what more could you hope for in a hostel. Loved my time here and can't wait to go back sooner or later!! Thank you so much team Ringside!

Really liked my stay at Ringside. The staff is very helpful and the atmosphere is amazing. I was there during the full moon party and they made sure everyone got good prepared for it. Whenever I return to the Island, I will definitly stay there again.

Amazing hostel, one of the best in Koh Phangan to meet people. However the location should be considered, as the main beaches are not within walk distance. However taxis can be arranged cheap to cover Bantai and Haad Rin.

Good little hostel, friendly staff and social atmosphere. Location is too far from the big parties though so you have to allow for taxi money every day which is expensive cos the taxi drivers are kindof scammers. Also, too expensive for what it is during full moon week.
