    Loved this hostel and would recommend to anyone. Nicky, the owner is fantastic and so accommodating. The location is great, close to Sairee beach and having a supermarket opposite. The facilities are great and I felt that everything I could need was there. Will definitely be returning!!

    I can not recommend this hostel enough. The staff will go above and beyond to ensure that everyone there has a pleasant stay. I was there end of June and some of July this year when everything started opening up again after corona and Nicky (the owner) would help us with anything at any time with not much staff at her side. The room was also outstanding with very comfortable beds and included all the facilities needed. I also love the atmosphere and I can’t wait to come back never year again.

    Couldn’t recommend enough, arrived at 7am as had an overnight boat and was checked in straight away even though I messed the booking up and accidentally booked a day later than was meant too. Staff were excellent and the room itself was spotless. Just a very nice hostel

    Great stay here! My friends and I were in a 3-bed private and it definitely more like a hotel then a hostel. The staff were super helpful. About a 10-15 minute walk to beach and even closer to the "party area". Also there was a great hostel dog. He was so sweet and nice and we spent a lot of time just hanging out with him. Only small bummer was that, because it was more hotel-y, it wasn't great for meeting other people. Great for groups, less great for solo travellers.

    Basic living accommodation but the social area was great, there were usually people around to talk to. Very well placed, close to the town whilst still being quiet.

    The private room was outstanding, it felt like a luxury hotel with a balcony and a great view across the island and the mountain. It’s a bit far from town, but still walkable. Overall room quality for the value was excellent.

    Standard hostel, I didn’t like that the hostel dorms were just on the side of the street unlocked as it didn’t feel too safe, I liked that it was slightly away from the whole hustle and bustle of the loud nightlife though, and they had a dog

    We stayed in 2 hostels in Koh Tao - this one first and then Lucky House which was just down the road. Lucky house was considerably better. Staff at Summer are so rude and not friendly in the slightest. Our dorm room didn’t even lock which obviously isn’t ideal and as anybody off the street could literally go straight into the hostel as there’s no front door as such, this is pretty poor. The bathroom in the dorm was also of poor quality and not clean with a hole in the ceiling! Wouldn’t stay agai
