    We really enjoyed Black Wood! The staff is great and it’s lovely that they have Gonza cook crêpes/pizza on week-end nights for guests ! Everything was very clean and well located near the pier and diving centers.

    An amazing place, the best staff I ever met during my adventures, clean, free coffee/ tea and biscuits. Very close to the Pier and all bars and restaurants. Fall in love with this place. Highly recommended!!!

    Cool looking hostel and not bad at all, but other hostels on Koh Tao just do things better, like just less weird locations or have less mosquito infested common areas to meet people. It sometimes holds after parties though.

    Great place, great location, Gonza is awesome. Really chill place by a ton of great restaurants and the water. Spring mattresses and hard pillows make for a pretty uncomfortable sleep and no soap for the bathrooms.

    We stayed in a bungalow and were a little disappointed by how gross it was. Lots of crusty stains on the sheets and the floor was really dirty. Also, the only blanket was a super thick and kind of gross one- it was really hot, so having a lighter sheet would have been nice. But it was very close to the pier (a 5 minute walk) with lots of good dining options nearby, and it's tucked away from the busy party streets, which makes it a bit calmer.

    The hostel lies a little hidden off the main road in the woods, so there were mosquitos, geckos and spiders in the room. The beds and pillows are all wrapped in plastic?! unfortunately this did not feel very comfortable at all. Very nice staff working there though, nice common area to chill out together.

    The location sucks. Hard to find. Shower water was cold. Lots of mosquitos outside. Beds are not comfy. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone

    Stayed here for my girlfriends birthday expecting a nice private bungalow When we arrived my girlfriend tried to use the shower and the water never got hot. We were told to give it some time, and then the staff member told us that he would call someone in the morning and we could use the bathroom in the dorms. We were leaving the next morning. Wasted 2 hours. To get to the hostel you have to drive down a terribly kept road without lighting. Bed was just springs. Waste of money. Go anywhere else!

    Couldn't stay. Asked for our money back as soon as we saw the room. They obliged. Staff had heard these complaints before. The manager didn't care what was wrong and didn't want to improve his hostel. The room stank of very strong cleaning products. A no shoe policy in the rooms but I think that was so our feet and socks would pick up the dirt and clean the room floor. The ladders to the bunks were rusty and bugs everywhere. Ants on the walls and gaps in the doors for mice. Don't stay
