Great value for money, friendly staff, 5 minute walk to the beach and bars/nightlife. Stayed in an 8 bed dorm with attached bathroom with 2 toilets
The guy working at the reception was the most friendy one I ever met at any hostel. The people who stayed there were quite cool, the dorm was nice, also the beds. The bathroom (one for one room): it was a bit tricky to change or shower without enough light and the toilets were often not that clean but that really depended on my roommates, not on the cleaners. I always got my information from the reception guy, he helped me a lot and was super friendly. I always would go there again!

The most clean hostel on my journey! Wauw! And a very new dorm, thought about all little things you need. Good beds, good location and facilities, thank you!
Nice place. We turned up a day early but had previously emailed prior to our arrival but the staff had not communicated well and were very confused. But very helpful sorting our room. Fan was good and so were facilities. good location right near the main road.
It was ok, not more and not less. One disgusting thing is that the trash bin next to the toilet seat were full for 2 days before they changed it. Location was bad, not center of sairee.

Staff quite unfriendly on arrival, lots of waiting around without being told why. They all take over the communal area in the evening and play musical instruments and sing badly. Overall not a great stay.
Fan room with a lovely warm shower. The beds were also so comfy!
Beds in the dorm are very comfy, everyone has space to store their luggage, and has an own spacious locker. There is a common area outside where you can easily meet people but it is nothing special. Walk to the beach is 2 or 3 min so pretty close, same for shops, bars, restaurants. I can recommend the place and would go there again.
Was brilliant, thanks!

We stayed here for 3 nights and when checking in the man was so unhelpful. Rooms were basic but clean enough and only 5 minute walk from strip and beach. There was a younger man on reception for rest of stay and he was very nice and helpful compared with other. Hostel is ok to stay for a night or 2 but didn't have much of an atmosphere.
Nice rooms with functioning AC, decent beds, plugs and lights for each bed and little shelves for water bottles and such. Each room has 2 toilets and 2 showers so you never have to wait, and all are reasonably clean. Decent sized lockers too. Walking distance to anything in Sairee with some good beaches and restaurants near by! Definitely a decent place to stay if you're coming to Koh Tao. Just make sure you research a good company to rent your scooter from!
We actually stayed in a double room at the Amonrada house which is presumably part of the GoodDream Hostel. Rooms were okay and clean, staff was friendly. The location is okay being a short walk to Sairee Beach but far away enough to make it quiet at night.
The staff was nice, but there wasn't any common area to meet people! I also did not like how they turned up the beds that hadn't been rented for the night... it made the room seem cold and uninviting...which is not what you want out of a hostel. Also, the room without A/C shared a bathroom with the staff so throughout the night, they would be coming in and out turning the light on and off and being noisy. These are all things that can be improved on though if they so choose.
Good Dream has a 9am taxi pick-up for the ferry at 9am. Bicycle rentals are scarce on this part of the island. The local beach has turned into what I call the "MARLEY & Me" dog beach and the pet owners only pretend to clean up after the fact. If you see a bar/restaurant advertising all you can eat pizza for a set price...don't do it! Between the fake sausage and the old spinach...I had to stay close to the bathroom for 3 days. Get a reciept...always.
Ants everywhere in private room, disgusting and the staff didn't clean the rooms. Guy at front is helpful. Not far from restaurants, beaches, and dive houses.
little safe in the room, close to pizza and breakfast all you can eat ;-), as we were there they had a construction area beside, which makes noise at daytime, but normally it's a quiete place next to the forest and just 5min walk to beach and 7/11
Each room had two showers, one was hot water and the other was cold. No mixing it for a good temperature. The beds were comfortable though and the rooms were good. It was reasonably close to the main area. Only a 5 minute walk away.
Good place to stay, and one of the cheaper options in Koh Tao. The office manager was very nice and helpful, he noticed that I had a motorbike injury and so he upgraded me to an a/c room for free to have a lower bunk bed, so I didn't have to climb to a top bunk. Recommend staying here.
I can totally recommend this hostel, stayed there 7 nights. Located at the northern part of Sairee beach and really close to the beach. The staff is super friendly and cares about everyone. Clean rooms and bathrooms, common area and snorkel equipment. Just be careful when you want to rent a motorbike at the shops close to the hostel!
