Liked: Friendly environment, nice staff, hammocks

Disliked: Cold shower, far from the beach, hard beds, few plugs, not very clean, toilet is just.... Well exactly what you pay for, not much..


The property's response is

When you find out that your 5 GBP on the remote island of Thailand give you less than what you normally have on the mainland, would you try to understand and appreciate what the local business try to offer you for that price or just complain and give bad review because you can..
You got what you pay for... but have you ever think we got for what we offer...

Thanks to those people who is understanding and appreciating... even most of them don't give review. Happy travel!

Liked: Good atmosphere to meet fellow travellers. One of the more affordable hostels in Koh Tao

Disliked: Rooms and bathrooms were very basic but got the job done. We weren't able to go to our room until about 2 hours after we checked in due to a lack of organisation from the host not knowing if previous guests had checked out or not

Liked: The beds are very small, the rooms aren't clean and the bath room is a mess. But.. when you're in koh tao.. go to spicy tao! It's such a nice place to stay because you will meet a lot of people because of the nice 'hang out' place. The atmosphere is amazing. :) Best place to stay!

Backpacking / gap year

Liked: The location is a bit out of the city but it's locates in the mountains and the surroundings are very nice. It's quiet, you only hear some animals and you have the feeling to be directly in the nature.

Disliked: We booked an 8 bed dorm with a/c, but got a 4 bed dorm with fan. The staff had a hangover from the day before and they were only talking about this. When we arrived there was nobody at the reception and nobody knew when they would be back. I think the rooms haven't been cleaned for weeks, the same for the bathrooms. It's a cheap hostel compared to other accommodation on the island but you could get a lot more for that money.
