Best Party Hostels for the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan

Best Party Hostels for the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan
Jump to:
Koh Phangan is one of the top party destinations in Thailand. Most people head to the island for the famous Full Moon Party. The idea of the Full Moon Party began in the mid 1980s in the Haad Rin area and this area is still at the center of the party today. There are bars that line the beach and travelers flock to the area for the alcohol, music, and the seriously intense party scene.

Most people head to Koh Phangan between the months of November and January. In particular, New Years Eve is a popular and busy time to experience the island. There are hotels, hostels, bungalows, and guesthouses all over the island. It's an expensive place to visit and most hostels and hotels require a minimum of a four or five night stay. If you're in town specifically for the Full Moon Party, it's probably best to stay on the southeastern side of the island near Sunrise Beach and Sunset Beach. These areas are close to Haad Rin.

Many people prefer to make reservations online before they arrive. This can be a bit of a gamble because it's hard to tell the quality of the facilities when you're booking. Accommodation in Koh Phangan can be quite expensive and of a significantly lower quality than you'd find in Northern Thailand or Bangkok. Many bungalows and guesthouses also aren't listed through online booking sites so your options are a bit limited if you do make advanced reservations. If you decide to make reservations in advance, we've listed some hostels below. Remember that the quality is always changing so it's best to read the most up-to-date reviews from recent guests before committing to a place. Also, as is common in Thailand, many hostels change management frequently which can effect the quality of the facilities.

If you're comfortable arriving without reservations, it's best to get to town about five days before the party officially begins. As the day approaches, prices get steeper and rooms start to fill up.
