Staff were often so fun they were hungover and unavailable. However when they were around they were very friendly! Unfortunately we booked a triple private room which was actually in a neighbouring hostel so we felt little out of the loop but still partied with the dancing elephant guests. The street parties attract lots of people from other hostels so if social is what you're after dancing elephant is the place to be

Room Tip: Confirm where your rooms will be if travelling with friends as they are all spread out across 2 or 3 streets

Me and my friends stayed here for 5 nights during full moon. Was a bit sceptical staying in a 19 bed mixed dorm but it was a great experience. The rooms itself wasn't too bad, air con was okay. Common room on the ground floor was ideal, you could play table tennis or watch a good selection of films on I think a 37 inch flat screen tv. Security was our major concern but nothing got stole over the duration of our stay. They provided a wrist band where at night you would show it to security to let you in as the doors was locked. The street we stayed on was very lively and busy on the nights leading up to the full moon!

Great atmosphere at this place, run by lovely French owner who was happy to stop and speak to all his guests, really tries to put on a party every night and the guys who run the day to day operations were also great lads and a lot of fun. This place is the best hostel to stay at for the Full moon week, especially if like me you were traveling alone. Everyone parties outside the rooms together every night so you will definitely meet a lot of great people over your stay and you will have a lot of fun! the price could put some people off especially as you are tied in to 5 nights but I would say that its worth it. Location is very good and you get some discounts at various shops and bars through this place, make sure you get yourself over to the sunset beach bar in the afternoons to cure your hangover. Will be back here for sure.

This was the best hostel experience i've ever had! I stayed 5 nights over full moon. I was travelling alone but quickly met someone to share a room with. it was so easy to meet other people staying there, as we all just hung out at the bar everyday/night. They organise heaps of social activities and pre parties to the full moon. The managers were so friendly and helpful and made an effort to get to know everyone. Wouldn't stay anywhere else if I went back!
