    We enjoyed our stay here. After having stayed in various hostels for the past four weeks, this one has the most comfortable mattress. They have hammocks and bean bags upstairs for relaxing. There are plenty of bathrooms and a convenient place to hang clothes to dry. Good showers that did not run out of hot water. John and Karen are friendly and helpful and the staff smiles. We would stay here again.

    Absolutely loved this hostel. The vibe is so friendly and laid back. The beds are sooo comfy! And you've got your own little pod which is really nice. The hostel has a nice chill out area with hammocks and an amazing vegan cafe downstairs. John and the girls are so lovely and made me feel so welcome. I ended up extending my stay because I liked it so much! Would definitely recommend staying here!

    I did not want to leave Koh Tao period. I ended up extending my stay for two more nights. Staff was always very helpful and super nice. Rooms are nice and clean. Bathrooms as well.

    Jon (owner) his team made me feel very welcome right from the beginning. The dorms are enclosed pods with a curtain so you get privacy whatever time you are in there. The showers and facilities are A1 and can’t be faulted. Unfortunately I fell ill and had to cut my trip to Koh Tao short however I would love to come back sometime soon and this will be my first port of call! Jon and the crew at Gecko went the extra mile, thanks again.

    I truly enjoyed my stay at Gecko. There is the downstairs restaurant and upstairs hammock area that are great spots to relax or meet new people. The owner and his staff are more than helpful and gave us great tips for good spots on the island and local cuisine. Also, the sleeping pods are so well designed that it does give you a sense of privacy when sleeping. Not to mention, that they had the cutest puppies running around. I will definitely stay there again when I make it back to the island!

    Staff were so helpful arranging activities, helping with island advice and directions. The facilities were some of the cleanest and best maintained I've seen in Thailand so far. Would definitely stay here again.

    Nice quirky hostel, dogs in the reception/communal area are super cute and friendly. Met some nice people there and is in walking distance of things you need on the island. Was great atmosphere when was busy and people were up for a good time, was a bit too quite on my last day when most had left.

    Box style beds all on top of one another, comfy and clean but not roomy at all. Big lockers fit my whole backpack in. Nice cafe with really delicious food down stairs (and it’s vegan which I didn’t know!) but a little pricier than eating elsewhere. Short 5 min motorbike into the main area. If you’re not comfortable biking, and don’t want to pay for multiple taxis - stay closer! Cute puppies. Upon checkout my friend and I were charged different prices confusingly though. Would stay again, thanks!

    Very Good

    This hostel is very nice the communal areas are very chilled, there wasn’t much of an atmosphere but I’m sure there would be at a busier time. The staff were friendly enough and the place was relatively clean apart from what looked like an unchanged sheet on one of the two beds we’d booked. We did have a pleasant stay though. The little dogs that live there make this place worth a visit regardless.
