Hate trying to decide what hostel to stay at? STOP trying and STAY HERE. A solid staff and committed owners create an excellent atmosphere for socializing while they can also provide you with all the information you may need about the island. Tips: Rent a motorbike, splurge for a room with A/C, brush up on your beer pong skills and enjoy!

They tried to sell the hostel as a party hostel. However there was not that much going on there. Facilities are way below average for thai hostels (no lockers inside dorms, you have to pay extra for them, no reading lights, few power sockets). Cleanliness of bathrooms was very poor. And they had just two bathrooms for around 40 people. Staff was helpful and friendly. But it seemed quite strange when they asked me for a good rating for the hostel before I had even checked in. Location was ok.

What a great place to stay! Staff is fun and there for you. Only thing I would change is to make the beds non metal so they don't make as much noise .... Great place for the solo traveler !

We stayed across the Full Moon period which seems to be when the hostel comes most to life and sleeping goes out of the window. The party atmosphere is great and the pre-party for full moon as well as the crazy mango tour are both awesome! If you like your sleep this probably isn't the place for you as as one party (

Ringside is THE place to stay for 1/2 or full moon parties, or just to party. It and it's sister hostel Slumber Party in Ao Nang are the best we're-a-team-and-we're-getting-f***ed-up hostels going. If this isn't what you're looking for I'm sure there are a lot of nice little bungalows around.

If you love amazing people and an great atmosphere Ringside is a must! The staff are beyond excellent. Jen and Sam are brilliant, they are full of great opinions and friendly advice. They offer great activites eg. Crazy mango tour, which was a fantastic day! These guys will show you what to do on the island and how to party! The location is 20 seconds from a beach and is 10 seconds from a great supermarket and restaurants! Ringside is amazing! Thank you to all the staff!!

Me and 2 of my friends stayed for half and Full moon, all the staff were amazing! They were always there for advice on things to do in the day and threw amazing pre parties at night before we headed out! There's such a great atmosphere in the hostel everybody becomes one big family! If you decide to stay here the 1000bhat bucket is a must buy! It's a great way to get everyone on board for the night! If I ever visit thailand again this will be the first place I will be book! Thanks guys!!

Snorkeling, wipe-out course, and so much more on the tour! The staff is incredibly friendly and ready to help out any way they can! This is definitely the place to stay when you're on Koh Phangan!!

So much fun staying at ringside! If you're in for a good party you should definitely stay here. Paul & the staff are great, they take care of you and make you feel like home. The rooms are clean and the beds pretty comfy even tho it shouldn't really matter cause if you're doing it right you won't spend much time sleeping.. No doubt the best party hostel in Koh Phangan !

I booked my stay for 14 nights. I felt right at home from the moment I stepped foot on the property. The Ringside staff were extremely welcoming. They made everything about my stay as amazing as I had hoped for. They really do take care of you and can help answer any of your questions about the island. The parties are insane, the atmosphere is amazing, and the travelers who roll through are solid people. If you want an insta-family book your stay here! You won't regret it!

This is definitely a party hostel that has drinking games going every night and a bar that can make almost any kind of cocktail so you're not stuck just drinking beer every night. I stayed there for a week and was very pleased with the staff. They're all really nice, fun people that will party with you and make sure everyone feels included. A few of them even took me to a beach on the other side of the island on their day off! Thank you Michelle, Jenna, Sam, Theresa, etc!!!

WOW! What a place, stayed here for 5 nights and they were some of the most memorable nights I've ever had. Every night there's an epic/insane party going on. Crazy Mango tour was a highlight for sure, all the different bbq's were delicious but the pre party before the Full Moon was just the best! Staff were sooo helpful and if anyone ever needed anything then it was done asap and with a smile. Beds were comfy and the place is always spotless. No doubt will be back to the greatest hostel!
