Stayed with the girl reviewer below as we both found the fan accommodation our dive school offered lacking... A/C. Seriously, it's hot on Koh Tao, get a room with A/C!!
While this place would be overpriced anywhere else in Thailand it's a pretty good deal for Koh Tao. A/C was strong, beds were comfy, and room was always clean by the time we got back from diving. Bathroom was often smelly, as I've found is common with outdoor facilities in SEA, but quite large w/ hot, strong showers.
Breakfast buffet had the most extensive variety I think I've ever encountered--the omelet station was an awesome touch! The location is pretty perfect, surrounded by plenty of restaurants, it's a 5-minute walk from most of the dive schools located in on Sairee beach, and about 10-min from the strip of bars/clubs.
Normally I wouldn't spend this much on a room by myself, but after the dump I moved to once my roomie had departed for her next destination (I wanted to continue with my advanced certification) I wish I had stayed at the Simple Life.
Even if you don't stay here, best to spend the money you save on diving on a decent accommodation as the budget options on Koh Tao are pretty abysmal.
