    Stayed here for 4 nights in the mixed 6 bed room. Pros: Great social hostel vibe every single night with tons of activities, warm shower, non smelly bathroom, great food in the restaurant, amazing staff Cons: Hard mattress with bed bugs (every person in my dorm mentioned this at one point and several of us had lots of bites ((I even smashed one on my sheet that was filled with blood)), about 10 roosters cocka-dooldledoo at 6am every morning just 20-30m from the room

    Good location and comfy bed. Good food but the bar is not really cozy (plastic chairs and concrete benches.) Super nice volunteers! I would recommend if you plan on staying in Koh Tao, it's a good place. Be aware that it's a noisy neighborhood with a dozen of rusters around...

    There’s a Dutch/Belgium guy who works here. Most arrogant rep I’ve ever seen or spoke too. Spends his whole night trying to flirt or pull girls that he ignores everyone else. Tried speaking to him numerous times and I got nothing back just because I wasn’t a female. Tell him to pay more attention to all guests in the future

    The hostel has a great vibe, very social and nice areas to hang out! I stayed in a double room and although very basic rooms, I can’t complain for the price as it was the best I found in Sairee!

    Seemed to have a really good atmosphere every night if you want to socialise, however my personal preference in Koh Tao was just to relax & plan things (I was also able to do this). The location was good & the hostel had a couple of events in the evening/snorkel trips in the day. For 300 baht a night, would be better to have a soap to wash hands in the bathroom (I had to buy some in the end) & privacy curtain. Value for money could be improved

    I enjoyed my stay here and liked the outside chill spaces. Sociable hostel and close to the main bars for pub crawl. Staff were friendly and helpful. Downsides : shower was cold and the beds were quite hard so not the best nights sleep. Also lots of ants everywhere in the room (and inside my locker?!). I felt that it could be cleaned more thoroughly and no soap was provided to wash hands.

    Only stay here if you’re looking to party/be social in Koh Tao. Staff were absolutely wonderful, the chilling areas are really nice but that’s about it. I’m an easy going traveller, but the beds are uncomfortable, the walls are quite thin so you can hear roosters, music and voices. The bathroom’s had a funky smell. My bed was dirty when I got there but they were excellent and fixed it right away. Taco divers are also amazing! But you don’t get the most rest at this hostel

    Good location, definitely a social hostel as they sell buckets etc but unfortunately the aircon was switched off over night and the water wasn’t running so I checked out early and moved to a hostel closer to the beach.
