Bangkok Party Hostels

Bangkok is the world-leading capital when it comes to fun and there’s no shortage of parties. The best party hostels in Bangkok are Mad Monkey, Slumber Party and Bodega Hostels.

Mad Monkey makes an appearance once again in the Thai capital. Bangkok is an incredible place to party, so you’ll want to stay somewhere where you can meet amazing people to enjoy nights out with.

Located near Khao San Road, this hostel is in the backpacker hub of Bangkok. They have a great swimming pool onsite as well as a bar and restaurant. It organizes regular events, which are the perfect way for solo travelers to meet new friends.

Their drinks specials are a great deal, and so the bar here is the ideal place to pre-drink before a night out.

There’s always something going on here, whether that’s a pool party or a karaoke night.

Check out the short video I took during my stay. Basically, every night was exactly like this, drinking games, shots and then we went to a party on Khao San Road, which is only a 5 minutes walk.

Chiang Rai is much more limited in terms of party hostels, but for a good sociable place to stay, particularly at the weekends, I’d recommend Norn Nung Len.

This Thai hostel has a relaxed atmosphere, and each weekend there’s some great live local music which everyone gathers to drink during.

Chiang Rai has less of a party scene than the cities listed above, but you’ll meet some cool people here and enjoy drinking together late into the night.

It has a small pool with a swim-up bar, so everyone’s drinking here all day and night. They organize drinking games every day, beer pong tournaments, pub crawls, and different other activities.

Slumber Party Hostel Koh Phangan

From my point of view, I think that Slumber Party Hostels Koh Phangan is the best party hostel in Thailand. Home to the Full Moon Party, you’ll want to make sure you choose the right hostel when you visit this island. Koh Phangan is considered the most party island in Southeast Asia, along with Bali and Phi Phi.

Slumber Party Hostels are renowned throughout the country for their party hostels, and it’s the perfect place to meet people from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds.

If you are antisocial, this is not the place for you! Their age limit is 35 years old, so expect a young and wild crowd.

If you plan to stay here for the Full Moon or Half Moon parties, book in advance as they are extremely popular due to the amazing parties and events they organize.

The video below I did record in 2020 in the last month of the Full Moon Party did run. Amazing hostel, right?

When looking for a Thai hostel to party at, you know you’re in safe hands with Slumber Party. Get ready for a wild ride here, as this hostel is located close to Bangla Road.

There are 2 Slumber Party Hostels in Phuket, Thailand, one has a pool and the other one is organizing pub crawls a few times a week.

I’ve stayed in the one without a pool but I went a couple of times to the other one as well for pool parties.

Make sure you give them a call before you arrive as at the time I went there last time (January 2020 I think) they had the wrong address on their website and I was looking for the hostel 30-40 minutes before someone told me the hostel is not there and lots of backpackers are searching this hostel every day in that place.

The hostel from the video below is the one with the pool, but if you stay in the other one they organize a free shuttle every day. I really enjoyed my time here and I never missed one drinking game haha.
