    I really enjoyed my stay at Summer Hostel, the staff were amazing, the snorkel trip and the sunset hike to Two View Rocks was 1 of the best trips I did on the Island. Thank to all the staff and the mates I got to know. Differently coming back

    Couldn't recommend summer hostel enough, the atmosphere is great, it's a popular hostel and the owners and staff are more than accommodating. The big supermarket right across the road is also very helpful! Will definitely book again if I come back to Koh Tao.

    The Summer hostel had a good vibe with very friendly staff. Kane (not sure if I spelled that correct?), Angel (not sure if she actually works there?), and the main Thai lady who is from Bangkok were great to us and provided many useful tips. We rented motorcycles and snorkels from the Summer hostel and the service was honest and easy - They will not rip you off like some other locations. They also provide water refills by donation - Use this service, help conserve, stop being lazy with plastic.

    Amazing stay at Slumber Party, one of the best of my travels! A really nice hostel to stay in even without the social side which was also amazing and led by a great group of staff! Especially Rich who was very welcoming and made sure everyone had what they needed! Thanks guys!!!

    Summer is by far my favourite hostel i've stayed at in South East Asia! Booked for 1 night, and ended up staying 2 weeks. The team at Summer became family and i will miss Nicky, Bella, Apple and K so much! There is always someone around to answer any questions you might have about the island, and everyone instantly makes you feel welcome. The hostel is super clean, and in a great location- but the staff and atmosphere are what really makes Summer special. Sooo perfect for solo travellers! X

    Summer guesthouse hostel gives you a welcoming social feeling. The hostel is cute and people like to hangout outside a lot. There is a 24hr supermarket across the street and an amazing family owned business that cooks food, does laundry service, bike rentals, taxi service and the owners are extremely friendly and give you a family feel. Her food tastes as if it’s a grandma secret recipe that you just want more. We went there everyday to eat. The staff of the hostel were helpful and personable

    We stayed in a private room at summer hostel. It was nice and spacious on the top floor right by a big balcony with a stunning view. The bed was comfy and the room clean. The location is great, just up the street from the main beach, with shopping areas and restaurants. The only downside to our stay was that it seemed as if the toilet and shower pipes were connected in a weird way because sometimes when we tried to shower the water smelt stinky which was a little worrisome also the TV didn' work

    Security: Although they had lockers, they were only outside the room. Door was always open. Atmosphere: Almost not existing, didn‘t get to speak to any persons apart from my roommates. Public area is a big table which is dead most of the times. Cleanliness: Can‘t complain, although the bathroom was under water most of the time and smelled awful. Staff: Friendly, only had contact when I checked in & out. Location: 20min walk from the beach. Value f. m.: Good, as it‘s pretty cheap.

    We didn’t enjoy our stay here much, 6 bed dorm was very small. No where to put your backpack, wasn’t very clean. Quite far to walk down to the beach. The staff were friendly though.
