First of all the owner Paul is the best! He welcomed us right away and told us we needed to take a load off and have a beer. My kinda guy! This place has a great atmosphere with even better music. The dorms and showers are very clean but its the staff that really makes the place. Not only is the staff down to party with you but they will go out of their way to help you with whatever they can. Paul even sat us down with a map and told us all the best spots to go. Another nice thing about Ringside is they party every night but at about 11pm or 12pm everyone goes out and the bar downstairs closes so if you aren't in the drinking mood you can still chill out and get some sleep. If you are ready to rage the staff will either take you or point you in the right direction to the best parties. I was all over Thailand for a month and bounced around to a lot of different hostels but Ringside was by far the best. I will definitely be back to see these guys! Oh and I have to give a shout out to Wayne..miss you mannnn! Ringside is definitely where it's at!

Wicked place to stay for full moon. Jenna was awesome and put up with some drunken Canadians on the tour. Aside from the Canadians, Jenna and the Ringside hostel were great. Highly recommend for you and your mates, very lush.

This place is awesome. The staff are all fun and I wouldn't recommend any other hostel in Thailand. If you are looking to stay somewhere for the full moon party, ringside is the biggest party hostel around.

From the first day I arrived at Ringside I felt like I was part of their family, everyone that works there is so friendly and so helpful. The rooms are great you have the option of air con or fan rooms and the toilets and showers are great and you can even flush toilet toll down the toilet! There is great wifi in all rooms and outside. It is in a great location, there is a supermarket right next door and a beach just a 3 minute walk away. In the evenings you can pop downstairs to the bar and enjoy a game of beer pong. I was only supposed to stay here for about 4 days and I ended up staying for about 3 weeks, I honestly can't think of anything bad about this place, ringside is a must! Thank you so much paul, Wayne, sam, Jenna etc for a great 3 weeks, had the best time, Ringside is number 1!
