First thing this hostel is in a whack location. It’s in between towns on a main road. Nothing is in walking distance. Otherwise the atmosphere is dead - probably to do with the location. Showers are great and the hostel is clean. WiFi is dope.

If you want a social hostel near restaurants and bars DO NOT STAY HERE. We ended up spending a lot of money on taxis when we wanted to go to a somewhere with atmosphere. It was incredibly unsocial too. We were asked to leave the hostel social area at 9:30 because they didn't want any noise! The lights in the dorms are turned on by motion meaning they turn off after every 20 seconds. Extremely irritating as you end up living in darkness. Dorms were also tiny with no floor space. Very disappointed

Pods are abit strange. Very comfy though. Was a fan inside the pod but they were all under construction making it very hot on a night. Lovely free waffles in the morning.

Great hostel, one of the comfiest so far, beds are amazing for a hostel & 2 fluffy pillows A bit out of the way from the main party strip, but thats probably a good thing (can be walked in approx 25 mins) (100bht each way per person taxi or 200bht per day motorbike hire) Facilities great, thai owned and run, lovely people who cant do enough to help Security bands for a access to rooms & large lockers to store all your belonging, booked 1 night & stayed 4

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review - we really appreciate it. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much you extended it! Comfort, cleanliness and security are definitely some top priorities on our list so we're happy we could provide that for you :) Since we are located in the quieter area of Koh Tao we like to promote those chill and relaxing vibes, but we still have plenty of great beaches, viewpoints and restaurants right on our doorstep. Thanks for staying with us, we hope to see you again, best wishes, Team Gecko

Had a nice stay at this hostel. A/C very good, very clean, staff lovely, free breakfast muesli is nice, good showers, very secure lockers. Location is a bit far from things and could be difficult to meet people here. Would stay again.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review us - we really appreciate it. We're so glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay with us. While we are located in the quieter area of Koh Tao we're still lucky enough to have plenty of great beaches, viewpoints and restaurants right on our doorstep. While our current social area is a bit on the small side we are developing the large space downstairs and working on how to make them more comfortable and inviting. We hope you come back to check out the new communal area! Best wishes, Team Gecko
