    We've been travelling for 5 months and this was by far the best private room we stayed in, it was simply stunning. The owner was lovely and really seemed interested in helping us. Location is good, next to a couple of nice restaurants, however it is a small walk to other parts of town. Will definitely stay again when we return to Ko Tao!!

    Lovely hostel if you want to chill out and not have too much noise. Clean, easy going, nice beds and reasonably priced food.

    Enjoyed our stay here. Shower facilities are clean but differ dramatically in temperature. Dorm rooms are a reasonable size however there is no space to put your bag under your bunk. Breakfast was simple - some people had ham sandwiches/ fruit, musli & yoghurt - however these weren’t advertised anywhere? Maybe a privilege thing for private rooms? Lacked some atmosphere- but that could just be as we arrived, lots of people left

    Staff were helpful and hostel location was good. Lots of bugs and insects in the shower area and difficult to meet people since not a lot of people were staying here. A few silly rules like not allowed to have backpack on bed as a result would be fined. Overall, a good place to stay for a couple of days and there is room for improvement for the hostel.

    This was a nice chilled out hostel and the AC was amazing! But not really a place to meet other people as there isn’t really a social space apart from where you enter. But the staff were lovely and the location is great!

    Good/clean place. They have a lot of rules (don't put backpack on bed, don't wear shoes inside the room, etc). One very annoying thing was that someone came into my room to turn on the A/C, which was nice, but she kept the remote control! In the night I was freezing but there was no way to turn the A/C off. This is both eco-unfriendly and very uncomfortable. There is no night staff working either, so I wasn't able to talk to anybody about it till 8 am.

    Very basic, get what you pay for. The large rooms are very intense but definitely good for a solo traveler. Only stayed for 1 night so didn't get to experience the atmosphere. But was clean, and felt safe
