    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!

    Summer hostel was great! It wasn’t very crowded so my friends and I all had our own rooms. There was about 7 fans in the room so not having AC wasn’t a problem. The staff was very helpful with getting ferry to another island and where to go for snorkeling on our scooters. The owner was very nice and so were the workers. They have a cute dog that lives there too. If you’re not looking for a party hostel this is a great option. Walking distance to the main road and the beach.

    Had the maddest 4 nights at Summer Party, nicest staff I've met at any hostel so far in Thailand. Rooms are nice, hostels opposite a good supermarket, next door to tumble dryers, perfect place to stay in Kao Tao.

    We really enjoyed our stay here. There is a nice chilled vibe in the hostel and everyone is very friendly. Rooms are clean and the staff are friendly. It's about a 10 minute walk to the bars and restaurants. I would definetly recommend.

    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.

    Very Good

    Had a pretty lousy experience here and I hardly know where to start... staff was very unhelpful, mostly on their phones during the day and didn’t tell me how to get in touch with them at night. So when issues arose, I had no idea who to call. I was forced to leave my room at 3:45am while my roommate was having s** with a stranger, and there was little response and no compensation for this. Also their intern brought over a crowd of rude and offensive non-guests to hang out, one of whom groped me.

    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.

    Good locations, 10 min walk from the beach, kitchen area and access to snorkels and beach accessories only through a deposit which is a great idea for short term visitors. However, there isn’t really a social area, no air con in the room so incredibly stuffy at night. Minimal security, no lockers in room and our rooms were down an alley way so didn’t feel safe at night. Very quiet at the time of visiting too, ended up moving to another hostel.
