    This has been one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at. The rooms are kept impeccably clean and the staff are an absolute delight! The girls remembered my morning coffee order, which was really nice. Lots of street food close by as well as many 7-11s and the overall atmosphere is fantastic - you will make friends writhing seconds of entering your room. Perfect for a solo traveller and would LOVE to come back again :)

    Was going to stay for 3 nights, stayed for 9. This place was super close to all the restaurants, the ferry terminal and most importantly my dive shop. Out of the main party area (Sairee beach) but had a really good vibe. Good social space downstairs where everyone hung out. Only 20 people in the hostel at a time so it's a nice spot to meet people. Showers were hot. AC was great. Beds and pillow comfy. No privacy curtains on beds is the only downside.

    Booked 1 night and ended up staying 10! Great atmosphere, either you're a group or solo traveller. The staff arrange activities at night which makes it really easy to meet people. They serve good + CHEAP food and some great cocktails too. Staff are really funny and considerate and they know everyone staying there by their name. This really makes you feel at home! A 15 min walk from the beach is a perfect way to start your day, location is good. Loved diving with Finsanity run by the same people!

    Aircon in the room was very cold and the first night I had to sleep without a blanket as they said they would give me one later but they never did so that sucked but I just got one when reception opened the next morning. Friendly staff and the communal area is nice and social.

    One of the best hostels to stay at on Kho Tao for a good budget. CHEAP and delicious food, and great perks if you decide to dive with their partners at Finsanity. Would 100% stay here again.

    The staff are amazing and so friendly! They were always there to help when we needed something from booking the snorkelling to booking a ferry to even helping me when I left something in the locker! It’s in a perfect location right next to the pier and only a 10 minute walk to Sairee beach! There were games to play so lots to do and also everyone was very social! I would definitely recommend this hostel is staying in koh tao!

    Super social hostel, great for meeting people. Dorms are comfy and the cafe does great breakfasts for a decent price. WiFi isn’t amazing. Even though the hostel is a bit out of the main town and Sairee beach it’s only a 20 minute walk/5 minute drive
