    Had a really great stay at Central Hostel Koh Tao. I like the concept of the hostel and the fun facts that were pasted on the wall. I was alone the whole time during my stay but the staff were still very welcoming and made sure everything was in order when I checked in. The breakfast opposite is also delicious! I had muesli with fruits and fried rice on one of the days! Got a chance to meet the owner of the hostel, Johnny, who was also very friendly. Location is great and convenient as well!

    Great hostel right next to the pier! Very friendly staff and they were very accommodating to us leaving on the 6am ferry. Free breakfast was great a choice of fruit and muesli, egg on toast or fried rice available until 1pm each day. Beds are super private and have a wall partition between each bunk. Only small lockers for valuables. Free tea and coffee and bananas! By staying here you get discounts around the street, most notable from the scooter rental shop next door 50 baht discount.

    We really enjoyed our stay here. We just wanted somewhere to relax and this hostel was perfect. The curtains around the bed mean that you have lots of privacy and everybody who stayed in our dorm was very quiet and respectable to others. The staff went above and beyond to make sure your experience was easy and worry-free. We booked a snorkelling trip through them with Diamond Tours which was great. The free breakfast is a real treat and they also provide free bananas which is very kind.

    It is a nice hostel to stay at when you are looking for a good time. Even though the atmosphere was not the best, there is a common room where you can hang out and meet people. It’s a short walk to the beach and a lot of bars and restaurants. Also you get some discounts for different things when you say you’re from central hostel. The breakfast was very good!

    Decent hostel. Free breakfast and coffee/tea/bananas/cookies makes it a good value. Location felt secure, so everyone left their stuff out without fear of theft. Bathrooms are clean and organized, but the layout is strange because you have to walk down stairs to use them. Shower isn't quite hot enough. And the bunk bed ladder isn't the easiest to get down from. If you shell out $5 more, you can get a private room at a dive center that is much more comfortable, just without free breakfast...

    Nice hostel in a good location, about 3 min walk from pier and 10 min walk from Sairee Beach. My only negative is there is not too much of an atmosphere so if you are looking to party go somewhere else.

    Has potential, but there’s literally no where to meet people in this hostel, it’s just two staircases up to a room. Can find better in Koh tao unfortunately. But staff was very nice!
