    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.

    I love the location of this hostel. Close to a lot of the diving schools. They give a lot of coupons for 10% off. The staff is friendly. I was thankful for the free bananas. I love the curtains for the beds the bed light does really work. You have to make your bed upon arrival. Very spacious. The toilet does smell but people in my room (10 bedroom) just closed the door behind them so it doesn’t travel upstairs. The showers are separate from toilet. It’s a good hostel and I stayed an extra night.

    Nice hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Recommended us the bike rental store next door which was great, always a worry when renting bikes so nice to be pointed in the right direction! Mae Head is nicer and more chilled than Soiree Beach, but make sure you go along for the Koh Tao bar crawl!

    located on the quieter side of the island but you can easily walk to bars etc. Nice tv and free coffee and biscuits that we loved. Not very sociable but nice room with curtains and really good toilet and showers.

    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

    All the room doors are left open (to let the AC circulate), no real social area other than a small sofa and TV which people just tend to watch and not talk. Bathrooms were okay, bit smelly (but I think that’s more of an island problem). Staff however were super nice, free banana, tea, coffee and cookies. Okay as a “place to sleep” (have to make you’re own bed). But probably wouldn’t stay here again.
