Love this hostel! Really great staff, so friendly and help you out whenever they can. The location is great, not on the main beach but 3 minutes away from the pier and a gorgeous beach nearby. Surrounded by great bars, shops, travel places and places to eat. Definitely coming back!

Had a great stay here and met some lovely people. The staff were fab and very helpful when it came to booking trips ferrys etc. great location beside the pier and a 15 min walk from sairee beach so close enough. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return. Toilets and showers has a horrible smell around them but apart from that everything was great!

Couldn't have asked for a better hostel experience! Booked in for 2 nights and stayed for 2 weeks. Rolf, the manager/owner, helped us out with discounts on almost everything on the island. There was a cleaner on site almost constantly and the 24hour aircon was a welcome relief from the humid heat. You even get a 10% discount with your key at reef bar next door which acts as a great common area to meet people. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

Great hostel on Koh Tao. Minutes walk away from the main piers and a short walk to the nightlife in Sairee beach. The hostel is very clean and dorms are well laid out with own personal light and plug. Air con is on 24 hours a day and there are security cameras all around. Would recommend to anyone travelling to Koh Tao!

Pros: Great location, wonderfully helpful staff, and a fantastic price. The cleaning lady comes every day and does quite a good job. The recommended scooter rental place was great. Downsides: the toilets and showers by the 14-bed dorm all have various things broken about them, the wifi is *achingly* slow with frequent disconnects, and the 14-bed dorm has no way to turn off the dim guide lights.

Stayed 3 nights at Central hostel and thought it was brilliant. The staff on reception were super helpful and friendly. The dorm had a fab atmosphere and the showers and loos were super clean (there seemed to be a cleaner in all day). Perfect location for the pier and only a 10 min walk to sairee beach. Bar across the road a good place to chill. Would strongly recommend!

The owner was really nice and got us a couple beers for respecting his hostel. Gives discounts to places in town since there is no common room so that was helpful, also the security cameras watching the lockers made me feel safer about my important items.

Hostel is located very close to the pier, so this makes getting to the hostel very easy once you get off the boat. Excellent,friendly staff and you get a free drink at the bar across the street. The A/C was not great, but it was not bad. The hostel is a bit older but not out of date by any means. The lockers are small, but they have many so if you get lucky you can get a couple lockers. Overall, a solid place to stay on a great island.

Pleasant stopover. Staff have a great introduction routine, very helpful. Arrived late in the evening and still received well. Beds were a good sleep. People seem to make more noise in these dorms than any other. Maybe it's the layout. Everywhere was very clean but the sulphur smell from the showers/toilet block is overwhelming. Otherwise good for a night or two.

Great atmosphere, the staff were so helpful and accommodating. The available lockers and CCTV make you feel completely safe which is a massive factor when I'm travelling alone.

Such a great, clean hostel. Even in the big dorm you have enough privacy. If you have got any questions the great staff will help you. I loved to stay there and just can recommend to stay there if you want to go to Koh Tao! Thanks for the great time!

One of the cleanest, coolest (temp), most comfortable dorms I've stayed in. The bathrooms had a strange bleach smell and the showers need a few extra hooks to hang stuff.

Nice clean hostel and a good place to sleep if you're not stuck by one of the yellow lights at the end of the room. Wifi is alright and cool underground theme. Recommended

The dorms are clean and the seperations are great. The AC was really cold but you could ask for another blanket without any problem. Staff was great and the place looked nice although there wasn't any common room... On the bad side, you had to walk at least 15 minutes to get to the beach area and to the bars. Depends on what you're looking for but if you want to be in the party, I wouldn't recommend this place.

Great hostel, I really enjoyed staying at central (part of the reason I stayed on a further 3days) the hostel has a nice theme to. I didn't find it hard making friends, but you have to put yourself out there - there's no communal area however the reef bar adjacent is a good place to play games, & hang out. Literally a 10 minute sober walk to sairee beach. The owner Rolf is an awesome guy, very accommodating to your needs & queries & genuine guy to share a beer with. Would definitely return!!

Nice location, just a 10min walk along the beach to the main bar / beach area. The hostel is very clean and nice ! Owners and staff are kind and helpful. Only negative is there is no such social area. They use the restaurant across the street but sometimes it's a little hard to get to meet people.

The hostel is great. Absolutely love the underground theme. The showers are good and toilets always kept clean. The AC in the rooms is perfect. ALL staff are great (Rolf!!!). People moan there's no common area. THERE IS A COOMON AREA. Reef bar across the road is the common area. You get discount there and it's got a great atmosphere and good food. highly recommend.
