Property Description

Our goal is to make sure that our guests have an unforgettable island experience.

The hostel is centrally located in Mae Haad, less than a two-minute walk from the main pier where you arrive by boat and just around the corner from the walking street that parallels Sairee Beach. For those who knew the Old Taco Shack#1 it is at the same location. DO NOT TAKE A TAXI!!

We have very spacious AIR-CONDITIONED dorms with 10 beds, each with access to two electric outlets for charging and for plugging in a night lamp.
We have multiple HOT showers and toilets spread throughout the premises. We also offer FREE DRINKING WATER refills to reduce plastic waste.

Each dorm is equipped with secured lockers. The mattresses are new and very comfortable. We are frequently told by people that have travelled to other hostels in Thailand that our beds are among the most comfortable.

The rooms are quiet in the night for sleeping, and we ask our customers not to make too much noise after 11 pm.

Restaurant : Green Shelter is also a super affordable and delicious restaurant combining Thai and Western cuisine with healthy Vegan and Gluten Free options.

Facilities : The hostel has a number of spacious common areas. There is a central open patio covered by a tree canopy. There is a lounge chilling area with floor pillows and a 40-inch flat screen for movie nights and quiet afternoons. Come meet fellow travelers over a game of pool. We organise social "shared table" evenings twice a week where you can meet fellow travelers over food and drinks. We also have two evenings of social games including the favourite beer pong.

During the day the patio area is a great place to lounge in the shade of the trees and chat to fellow travellers or just relax and have a refreshment. We offer discounted activities which connect you with the best sights to see in Koh Tao like Scuba diving, hiking, Thai boxing, exploring beautiful beaches, capturing perfect sunsets, whatever your interests are, let us know! We are here to welcome each and every traveller to our home as a new friend and make sure you have an incredible stay with us. Koh Tao is a small island so even the farthest destinations are only a short motorbike or taxi ride away.

Please don’t forget to book your onward journey with us, as during the high season places are limited.

We support activities to make tourism on Koh Tao sustainable and eco-friendly. We offer waste recycling, avoid using plastic (our straws are metal and recyclable bamboo). We also give FREE DRINKING WATER REFILLS. This saves thousands of plastic bottle waste every month.

Reservations : The reception and restaurant are open until 10 pm to welcome late arrivals. Please email us if you plan to arrive late so we can save your reservation. For morning departures the reception and restaurant open at 8am.
Once you check in, you need to pay for the balance due for the entire stay as booked.
Please note the Aircon is switched off between 11am and 2pm. View House Rules

    Absolutely love staying here! Clean facilities, welcoming, warm staff, and a great central area for those who want to dive, as all of the main dive centers are a five minute walk away. Close to the beach as well, near the best restaurants on the island, and Crystal Dive. Pro tip—order the fruit smoothie bowl (vegan), and the cocktails during happy hour. Amazing staff, keeps the environment very cheerful and have the kindest hearts. Much love for this hostel! xx

    The staff were really friendly and helpful with all my queries. I loved the events that they put on as they help get everyone together, the food from the buffet was excellent! The restaurant area itself is a really nice socialising space. Very close to the ferry port and everything is within walking distance! Everything was clean and well kept - really enjoyed my stay here!

    Exceptional hostel. Great chilled out atmosphere so that you can meet other travelers. The common area outside has a very relaxed chilled vibe. You can easily just sit down and read a book for hours. The hostel is great for solo travelers. The staff are really nice and fun to be around. They have a great food menu if you are hungry. I would recommend the mixed fruit bowl ! Overall a great hostel- This is actually my first time writing a review of a hostel so it must be good.

    Really nice hostel. Nice big rooms with big beds. Showers could’ve done with a shelf and hooks to put your stuff, and our bedroom didn’t have any curtains on the windows. Also they turn the aircon off at 8am, so it’s absolutely boiling if you’re having a lie-in! Other than those super minor things, it’s a really nice place to stay. Great location near the pier so you don’t have to walk far with your bags, and can still walk 10/15 mins to the bars along Sairee Beach easily. Would recommend!

    Slept very well on the clean beds, free filtered water so you can fill up your bottle as much as you want. shower curtains could be changed as they were a bit dirty but not disgusting, 2 min walk from pier, 3 min walk to closest beach. Everyone was very sociable

    Nice hostel... friendly staff and nice atmosphere ! The bathroom is the only thing that bothered me:not always clean and there is no door with the shower, only a curtain which can be quite tricky when it was windy 😂

    Very Good

    The hostel is actually really decent, great vibe and the dorm rooms are very spacious. Only downside is that the staff are probably the most rude and dismissive staff that we've encountered over 3 months travelling. Sometimes they wouldn't even look up when you're talking to them and made you feel like a burden for asking any questions. Such a shame because this did let the hostel down.

    Door was never locked so people could walk in whenever. I had the bed by the door and every time someone came in the part of the door by my head opened as well and it wouldn’t lock so I was constantly shutting it. Location was good for diving but that’s about it. Showers were downright gross and there was no place to put your dry clothes so I ended up wandering around in a towel and changing in the toilets. Everything else was ok but the security and showers sucked

    Unbelievably rude staff! Upon checkout I mentioned that I needed to pay for the single night I extended, however the hostel demanded 2 nights payment. The staff denied the amount of time I had stayed while refusing to return my passport unless I pay more money, in addition to the treat of police involvement. This also happened to another guest during my stay. Would not recommend, much better hostels very close by.
