    Really lovely hostel to stay in. You won’t find better. Elliot was so kind and helpful. Taught us how to drive mopeds and was so patient and waited until we were confident to ride on the road. Really friendly atmosphere a we travelled in a group but I would feel so safe going here as a sole traveler. Helped organise a lot of our activities and gave really good recommendations. Best hostel I’ve stayed in!

    Our favourite hostel in all of SE Asia never mind Thailand! Nicki and Elliot are the perfect hosts with a great hostel which creates a social and fun atmosphere. Just over the road from a supermarket so super convenient for buying supplies and helped us with all our transport and activities (even after we had left when we had problem with a bike in Koh Phangan!!) couldn’t recommend summer more to anyone staying in Koh tao

    Easily the best hostel I've stayed at in Thailand. The location is great, rooms are clean, and the staff is fantastic. The owners are extremely helpful and knowledgeable of anything you might want to know about Koh Tao or the surrounding area. They can get you a scooter, help book scuba diving, ferries, etc. The hostel was extremely social and the wonderful volunteers helped to organize events every night. Thank you Nikki and Elliot!!

    Me and my friends loved summer so much, we were at Taco Shack and wanted a private room so stayed at summer for 2 nights but honestly wished we’d stayed here our whole time on Koh Tao, summer is a little more out the way but the owners were so friendly and helpful, there’s drinking water, kitchen and snorkels for guests to use for free. The facilities are great and the private room was totally worth it. Such great value for money.

    Loved everything about our stay at Summer in Koh Tao. The staff were super friendly and really helpful in booking activities and transfers. The atmosphere in the common area was great. Our room was lovely and clean with great amenities and one of the best air con systems we have had on our whole trip. Would definitely recommend summer house!
