    I had the BEST time at Spiceytao! Julie at reception is the loveliest caring person she will help you to book all you’re onward travel and advice about the island! A beautiful soul! The hostel itself is in the jungle but a 10 min walk to the beach and 5 min walk to the shops and cheap food places. Great value for money! Yes there are insects but that is to be expected so don’t listen to bad reviews! I was originally at Taco shack which is double the price but lacked good vibes. STAY HERE!

    I stayed there for the third time. Still great. A remote place on this crowed, touristic island. It's kind of like a relaxed resort. Just stay there, expect a jungle vibe, come down, and be aware of the mosquitoes :)

    This hostel is around a 10 min stroll from the Main Street in koh Tao and is set back in the jungle type trees. Pretty cool but a very basic. Walk into your room from outside and no lock on door. Hostel room clean and leather mattresses. Bathroom okay. Only stayed one night but not due to the hostel. Recommend the blue chair restaurant in koh Tao and la pizzeria! Free toast for breakfast with jam tea and coffee. Good value for money

    I mean you get what you pay for. The toilet was bad in the room i was staying and the AC was leaking but that wasn't an issue. Was with friends here so I had a good time. The only problem I had was that the receptionist wasn't around all that much.

    Not as central as it might seem, and the rooms without AC are extremely hot even with all fans on. Lots of ants in the bathroom and no locks on the doors. The people and price are hard to beat, but you kind of get what you pay for

    I’m not sure if it’s because we were off season but we didn’t like this hostel at all. Firstly there only seems to be staff on during intermittent hours during the day, we frequently had to wait around if we wanted to speak to someone. The rooms were extremely basic, a few fans but still boiling hot, shower was a cold trickle, about 3 plugs in a 8 bed dorm, and no social side to speak of. Unfortunately I wouldn’t stay here again.
