    it is hard to find a fault with summer hostel. the beds are clean and comfortable, the room and bathroom clean and maintained, the common spaces welcoming, clean, maintained. the staff are kind, patient and attentive. they also laugh. there is a lady up the road who is a wonderful cook. i never felt uncomfortable or unsafe, and it is clear that they have worked to provide that experience. i was happily surprised, and cannot recommend summer hostel highly enough.

    Great chill out hostel, so easy to meet people, and only a short walk from sairee beach, i extended my stay and i was given a discounted price from Nicky The staff are very helpful, Apple and Kay are around most of the time, Amy and Vern are great hosts, very social and know where to go at night, and elliot even set up a football match for us on a projector one night. I stayed in the private room, very big comfortable bed and good wash area, fridge and a balcony with a good view

    I loved my stay at Summer Hostel. I got a private, one bed and it was extremely clean. They cleaned it everyday and changed the sheets & everything! The staff was really helpful l, even when I kept coming to them to extend another day (ended up staying 3 extra nights.) Location is very convenient. I would stay there again for a private dorm!

    Really nice environment and great outdoor space to hangout. The hostel dogs were the sweetest. The rooms are comfortable and staff came in ever couple days to change sheets which was a huge plus bc sand is a real thing out here y’all. The a/c was only on between 7pm and 10am which was okay but the room got real warm during the day. Totally fine, hardly spent time in there during the day anyway but my chocolate chip cookies got a lil melty. Overall, highly recommend!

    Great hostel with clean rooms. Really good distance from the beach and restaurants(about a 10 min walk). Nicky, Amy and Liam were all great! Nicky the owner was very helpful when we arrived and one of us was ill, putting the air con on for us. One of the nicest hostel owners we’ve met on our trip. The social area was quite quiet but nice to chill after a day on the beach or exploring the island. Would definitely recommend this hostel!

    Good hostel and the staff are amazing! The only issue is the location. Great if you have a bike though! Chilled vibe at the hostel too and they have some events they put on. Probably a great place to stay if you’re going a diving course, chilled out enough, yet social enough!

    A nice place. Good location- close to the town center. Very clean rooms, bathrooms tend to smell bad (although they were kept clean). Nice staff. It’s very good for the price you pay..

    The hostel was nice, but not overly impressive. There's a 24 hour supermarket across the street which is great. There's a small kitchen but you couldn't cook there. Bathrooms and showers didn't smell great because there's not much air circulation. Shout out to Apple at the front desk who was really friendly and offered great insight to Koh Tao.

    Wasn’t the best but wasn’t the worst. The showers were smelly not particularly clean. We booked her for 2 nights and were planning to extend for another 2 while we completed our dive course but decided to leave stay somewhere closer to the beach that had better facilities for the same price. The beds were comfy enough but very creaky with the ladders banging every time someone went up or down.
