    I absolutely love this hostel. It's close to nature and quiet. You can bring your own food and drinks and the vibe depends alot on the people. We had the absolute crazyest parties here in the livingroom, but it can also be super relaxing and chill. I prefer the ac dorms but there's many fans in the fan dorms. The two hostel Dogs are super cute and cuddly. If you feed them they will love you forever. Best hostel on a Budget and to stay a while.

    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!

    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.

    Whilst the staff were decent, the hostel itself is a run down mess. This is such a shame as it could be beautiful! The setting in the jungle, not far away from Sairee Beach, is beautiful but unfortunately they don't look after the place. Dorm room door didn't close so all the mosquitoes swarmed in at night. The beds have zero cushioning. There was litter everywhere. The cleaning staff just walk in without knocking and their dog follows! At one point the dog wouldn't let me back in! Very poor.

    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.
