    A great hostel in a great location with friendly staff, you definitely get great value for money. The hostel offers discounts at lots of places and has a free cycle tour around the island which is well worth it. I am not a confident cyclist at all but the owner Jonny made me feel very comfortable and I really enjoyed it. The only slight negative we can think of this place is that the beds were solid and not that comfy but other than that this hostel has been fab.

    We had a great stay at the Koh Tao Central Hostel. Great location, super clean, cosy/private beds and fully air conditioned. Free tea and coffee in common area. Definitely recommend the bike tours offered by the owner Johnny! Thanks so much for an amazing time!

    A great stay with welcoming staff. We did a bike ride with Jonny, the owner, and it was great to have a tour of the island - would recommend! We enjoyed the social area with free tea and coffee, the included breakfast was also great. A very clean hostel. We would stay here again if back in Koh Tao as it’s central, near the pier and easy to get around the island from here.

    It's far from the famous koh Tao pubcrawl but it's a block away from the pier. So if you have a early right out the next morning it's perfect or if you had a long trip in and cant wait to rest as soon as you get off the boat. It's perfect.

    Very good location, especially if you want to do scuba diving. Bed aren’t the comfiest, but the room was very spacious and the blackout curtain made for better sleep. Staff was very friendly and you are given discounts for multiple restaurants and shops upon arrival which is an added bonus. WiFi was a bit hit and miss, but it usually worked ok. Netflix in the living area and free coffee was fab.

    This hostel is near the ferry which is great if you’re arriving late and just want a convenient close place to sleep. Not a very social hostel.

    Positives: really friendly and helpful staff that looked after our bags after check out for the day. Everything was incredibly clean and the aircon kept the room at a good temperature. Negatives: it is slightly miss-sold as convenient for divers as the majority of dive schools are located quite far away. Also, the beds are slightly on the concrete side of things. Overall a very pleasant stay. Thank you.

    Strange set up, reception is in a tours/travels office which can make things difficult. We arrived an hour early for check in hoping to drop the bags off and wait for the room to be ready. However, this was not the case. We had to go eat in a local cafe. They had genk English brekkies so i highly recommend, believe the hostel has a partnership with them so an extra 10% off is usually available. The bar opposite may look decent but it’s only good for the football. See ya in a couple years? X

    Staff were unhelpful and rude. The air con was freezing and everybody in the dorm asked for the lady to turn it down. She turned it down and it was still cold, we asked for 3 blankets each and we were still freezing. The lady on reception made a comment how we arrived late only 8pm to check in as she wanted to finish work early. There are no staff in the hostel at night so people stay up drinking late making noise and you can't do anything about it. Don't stay here if you are a solo traveller.
