Cleanliness

Value
Hostel '69 Koh Tao is a small and sincere home of international travelers who believe hostels are much more than a cheap place to stay. Our main goal is to provide a safe, open, and easy going environment so everyone can tap into the chill vibes of the Summer of 1969- share laughs, build friendships, and enjoy some sun rays! Enjoy our large court yard with hammocks (and yes, a puppy!) or the chilled-out TV room with hundreds of movies of file. In true Summer fashion we like to periodically host BBQs as a great opportunity to bring guests together for a night of fun and delicious food. We are also in a great location, in Maehaad area, between Sairee beach, Chalok Baankao and Aow Leuk.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hostel was clean and a great size. That meant that everyone staying quickly made friends and spent most of our time together. The live music every other evening is a massive bonus and the standard of music is unreal. Staff are really helpful whenever you might need to avoid tourist traps/prices. They give great recommendations of places to go. The only downside is that Matias keeps promising to do a song at open mike and at this stage I feel slightly betrayed.

A good hostel located just outside the town. Good as it’s in a quiet location but also only a 20minute walk away from the bars and clubs down in the town. Great staff really helpful and friendly. Good range of drinks at the bar. Only thing that makes it a 4 not a 5 is the toilet and bathroom situation it’s very small and quite dirty but we weren’t fussed! Great place

I loved staying at 69. It's nothing fancy, but it's common area is so nice, the people working there are just lovely, the Bar next door with it's live music every second day is great. I can definitely recommend it!

Leaving Koh Tao was emotional! The beautiful people I met at the Hostel, the loving and friendly staff and owners made my stay in Koh Tao. You will find comfort, cleanliness, friendship and amazing vibes at the bar behind the hostel where live music is played most nights. You will also get any kind of support you look for from each and every person at the Hostel and it's perfect for solo travellers. When I go back to Koh Tao there is no doubt this is where my heart will guide me! Enjoy!

Negative points are: no aircon, just fans. The bed wasn’t really good either. Staff were really helpful and friendly. The bar was nice, with live music. Only problem, there was nearly nobody besides me. Prize: 300 bath per night is okay. Conclusion: 2 of 5 circles

We planned to stay here for 2 nights ended up staying 4! The atmosphere around the hostel is amazing with everyone being friendly and keen to know where you are travelling. 2 of the 4 nights the bar in the hostel had live music with some of the best music I have ever heard. The staff even stopped the music and sung happy birthday for my friend when it was his birthday one night!! A must stay!!

This is a place you can get comfortable and stay awhile! It’s full of people who want to chill, explore, have fun and eventually everyone becomes like family! The owners are super awesome and friendly. Gae knows everything about the island and can help you do what ever your heart desires! Matthias is such a fun loving guy who will take you to the best sunsets and beaches for snorkeling! The bathrooms are clean and the rooms are comfortable. The bar is the place to be with live music and jam sessions. They have community BBQ and game nights. It’s located close to the pier and an easy walk to Sairee! Make your trip and stay here!!!

I felt in love with Koh Tao and the diving. Coming home at this hostel in the evening really felt like home! Spending the evenings in the cozy bar in the garden, meeting great travellers was so nice. The People who run the hostel & bar do it with love and always ready to help you. The vibe and atmosphere are just perfect here, miss it already!
