    Goodtime went above and beyond our expectations. Our private room was quiet, clean, and a perfect fit for the two of us. The bar had all sorts of fun activities for guests such as quiz night (trivia) and karaoke night. The location is right on the beach, and serves delicious food! The staff helped us sort out anything we needed at all. We’d also highly recommend scuba diving with Goodtime!

    Location is perfect!! Chilled vibe but also a short stroll to all of the bars. You can hire bikes, book any activities at the hostel. The sunset from the beach is amazing. Good prices for drinks and good evening entertainment if you’d prefer to stay away from the wild drinking side. The staff were so helpful Only down side is rooms are extremely cramped and the aircon seems to just hit the middle bunkbeds and nowhere else. Also as with any beach bungalow hostel the mosquitos were horrendous.

    The accommodations were fantastic for the money spent, however the staff at the front desk really brought down the experience. They were flat out rude and not helpful. We arrived slightly earlier and were unable to check-in (which is ok) but were given false information on when we could get in our room. Then the electricity was out (A/C and WiFi) which was again ok except that the front desk acted uncaring and led us on as far as when the problem would be fixed. The location is great though and

    Best location!! Beach is right on the resort and the strip is just round the corner. Met some great people here but this is not a party hostel. Also rooms are very tight with 6 bunks in a tiny room. Air con was hot one night and freezing the other two but the staff are super friendly and helpful. Can rent bikes here and get anywhere on the island.

    Very Good

    This place is more of a resort-y place rather than a hostel. If you are with a group, it is a good place to stay since you are right at the beach but if you are travelling solo, there isn't really a common area where you can meet people. They only have a restaurant are by the beach and that's it. The bar was also kind of dead. It does have a nice location close to restaurants and bars. Rooms were good and showers were clean.

    Koh Tao is a beautiful island and the hostel is located right on the beach which is perfect. However, there’s no air con so the rooms are boiling! Also, the staff in the restaurant don’t speak very good English so it was difficult to order food or drinks and they weren’t very friendly either. Don’t think it’s worth the amount of money they charge!
