    Hostel incrível! O pessoal do staff é fantástico, principalmente o John! Quando você chega, a recepção te da uma toalha de rosto umedecida e perfumada, isto foi incrível! O ambiente é limpo e confortável, lugar ideal para fazer novos amigos ou apenas relaxar. Recomendo!!! Muito obrigado John pela hospitalidade!

    Super nice private sleeping bunks, incredibly friendly staff, fluffy puppies running around, amazing cafe food and atmosphere downstairs( do yourself a favor and try the mango ginger smoothie and the pineapple pancakes), cool hammock hangout spot, a pool table, and even the soap in the bathrooms smell amazing. We would have stayed longer if we didn’t have a ticket back to bangkok booked, just stay here you won’t regret it.

    Gecko is one of the best dorms to stay in koh tao with its friendly staff always giving the best tips about the island. Super clean dorms and showers, cozy interior design, second floor hamaks and the best coffee banana pancake deals made me stay here for 6 nights. I m happy with my choice of diving course that i found through them too.

    This was my favorite hostel I’ve stayed at. I booked for one night and ended up staying for 5! Walking distance from the ferry drop off, this clean and peaceful sanctuary became my home. The cafe provided free vegan Thai breakfast every morning, delicious coffee, hot showers, shampoo and towel. My usa plugs worked in all the outlets and my pod was silent the whole night. Ac worked really well and the location was perfect. Close to everything. The love the staff showed was the best part. Stay!!!

    One of the best Hostels in stayed at, also from value. Super nice staff and pool table. Lockers with plugs. Unfortunately breakfast and other foods are nice but a little pricey, even for Koh Tao prices. If you are on a budget you would be better of going out to eat. Unfortunately not many places are open before 10am for breakfast.

    Awesome hostel! Beds were super comfy and clean, showers too. Met some really nice people here, and the staff were extremely helpful - I left my notebook at the hostel and they helped send it to me to another island before my flight to vietnam! They also gave us lifts to the ferry when we were leaving Kho tao. Would definitely stay here again
