Ao Nang’s party hostel
The Slumber Party group runs two hostels in Ao Nang plus one each in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Ko Pha Ngan and Phuket, and they’re all more about the party than the slumber.
The group’s original property sits on the main drag in Ao Nang, nearly two kilometres from the beach, though most guests don’t mind this distance given the social scene revolving around a large bar, beer-pong table and beanbag lounge. The other property in Ao Nang is smaller and quieter with a location just off the beach road, and there’s a free shuttle connecting the two. At both you’ll find dorms only; no private rooms.
Both were closed for renovations when we last passed through in mid 2018, but we know that the tightly packed, mixed-gender dorms come with four to 10 bunks that each have electrical outlets and reading lamps within. Bunks at the “beach” location are a little pricier.
It’s easy to meet others at both—and whatever shyness you may possess will likely evaporate during one of their popular pub crawls and daytime activities like “Island Awesomeness” and “Secret Kayaking Adventure”. If the original property is full you could head across the road to the simpler Ao Nang Backpacker Hostel. Another party option is Balcony Party Hostel, which is set off the beach road and run by the same group that oversees the popular Pak-Up Hostel in Krabi town.
