    I straight up loved Summer Hostel. I had the most amazing time and continued to extend my stay. Bells and Izz are such amazing hosts. Nicky, who owns the hostel is so wonderful too. Summer was honestly the best hostel I visited in Thailand. Some of the best and most inexpensive restaurant spots are just down the street too. I loved Koh Tao, can’t wait to go back, and will stay here again when I do. It was the hardest place to leave because of all the amazing people I met. See you guys soon!

    Lovely hostel with awesome staff, a little up the hill from the center of town so a little quieter(which was great for having to wake up early for dives)

    Friendly hostel, overall good place to stay. Decent location, a bit of a walk to the main strip and beaches but there is a super mart right across the street. The lockers are not big enough to fit your bag, however I just emptied mine and used my lock to lock my stuff up inside of it.

    Nice enough hostel, the owner is very nice but felt a bit excluded from the western staff who seemed a bit cliquey. Comfy beds, very clean and ideal location, near town but far enough so that you have some peace.

    The young English girl was very friendly and helpful when we asked to switch rooms becuase we had booked the wrong room. The other lady on reception was not at all friendly. Location is OK, bit far from the main shops and beach and is quite dark at night walking back to the hostel but it was very quiet. There isn't much of a common area so this hostel was not a party hostel. Room was spacious and clean. Would stay again.

    Summer hostel was a bit crowded and even though it says it was a quiet hostel and out of the way it wasn’t really as people were always awake. On arrival, whoever checked us in didn’t seem to care to make us feel welcomed. However, Nicki was lovely and she made up for the attitude of the woman on the front desk. The lockers weren’t big enough for big rucksacks but you could fit your important documents in there so that was good. Overall, it was a nice stay and you get what you pay for.

    We stayed in a double private room which was more like a hotel room, very clean, big bed with free water, teas and coffees. The only problem we had was with the air conditioning. Ours wasn’t working, only blowing out hot air so our room was boiling. They called an engineer who fixed it but it still kept turning off every 15mins or so but atleast the room was cool. A little out of the main town, but opposite a supermarket and you can rent motorbikes for cheap and also snorkels.

    I stayed here for 2 nights in the fan room, pay extra money for the air conditioning! I barely slept, lots of fans it was just not comfortable. The hostel has small lockers for small valuable items but not one for your main bag. The hostel is located about a 15 min walk to the beach, and the walk about is all up hill. I found the reception staff not to be very welcoming or approachable unfortunately. There wasn’t a very good common area, so it was more difficult to meet other people.

    We had a good stay here however some of the staff came across rather cold and rude. When we arrived there was no walk welcome the lady just asked for our names and money. Some of the staff were lovely. However the rude one did make us feel rather uncomfortable and I think lots of other people staying in the hostel felt the same
