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

    Loved this hostel, it’s a bit of a trek from the main bar strip but it’s only a 2min walk down to get the ferry. Ladies working at the hostel were brilliant - wicked place!

    The communal space is really nice with fairy lights, a pool table and bean bags. Rooms are basic with just a small locker but clean. Great location if you’re planning to dive with Crystal Dive.

    This hostel is nothing spectacular, but it’s in a fantastic location and the girl who ran the hostel was always super nice. It’s only a two minute walk (or less) from the pier, which saves a lot on taxi money. The only criticism I would have is that the blankets were a little thin for how cold the room got at night. Other than that, the price is a good deal for Koh Tao, so I would recommend this place for sure.

    Pro: - Comfortable beds - Quiet at night - Very central location (2min from pier) - Lockers in the room - Door always locked - Good food, reasonable prices - Great atmosphere - all people were friendly and excited about meeting others - Ensuite bathroom Con: - Staff Only thaiwomen who were absolutely disrespectful. Always moaning when you asked them for anything or laughing at you. Not helpful at all, really hated them. Would definitely come back, although I wish they would change the staff

    Very Good

    Overall relatively decent hostel. Lockers for security and really clean. Bonus of really comfortable beds. The showers and toilets are pretty decent too. Staff weren't the most chatty or helpful but were nice enough. Found there wasn't all that much of an atmosphere here but overall a nice stay.

    Smells really really bad like drain in the room. Traveling since 8 months and really didn’t feel too comfortable in the room. Staff is nice, location is good and I like the free pool table. But honestly didn’t feel comfortable in the room at all. No place to really put your backpack anywhere so there are backpacks everywhere. It was clean but it just smelled so bad that I didn’t want so spend too much time in the room. Really sorry love the concept and like the staff :/

    Issues with parking there was a sign saying customers could park outside the hostel, police came and locked our bikes up and we had to pay a fine. Rooms were also very warm, air condition barely worked and gave everyone a cheery cough. When bringing this up at reception they said they would act on this but nothing ever came of it.
