I booked 25th feb to stay today, I went there and they hadn't had a bed booked for me so he started to try find it then he started blaming it on booking.com saying it's very complicated. But then he found my booking sheet inside their folder, he could of just admitted it was their mistake. Anyway he was a nice guy and did find me another room in pranee resort which said was his sisters? Also he kept saying I was very lucky to move here instead of apologising. Although now I'm here I have to change room in the morning cos the bed is booked for tomorrow night and it's a diving only resort which isn't what I wanted although yes I'm aware koh tao is mainly for divers! soooooo not best pleased to say I booked two month ago!

Hostel was ok, staff was very unfriendly but rooms were clean. Own locker, which is very unsafe by the way but nice for the idea. Location is ok 10 min walk to restaurants and beach. They have a bar but it is closed all the time. Small common area outside. Ok if you are Looking for a cheap place but there are much more better hostels to go.

The hostel set up was fantastic. There were plugs for every bed and the rooms were nice and ACed. Great value for what we paid, no complaints whatsoever. They included a common area as well to make it easier for travelers to socialize.

Very good as far as hostels go. Just minutes away from Sairee Beach - so you are cut-off from the late night noisy scenes. A/c, water, Wi-Fi work just fine - no reasons to complain at all. Staff is very friendly and helpful with special mention for Ryan.

Room Tip: Buy water from Ice Shop - close to 7-Eleven. Price of 6-pack here is about half in other shops.

one of the best accommodation we stayed at during holidays. We stayed in 8 people mixed dorms. It was very clean , toilets were great conditions,clean and showers with hot water. They were cleaned before we even get up!
The owner is not the chattiest but very helpful. It's very good deal for this price especially on Koh Tao which can be very expensive. Also is located close to the beach, but yet aside from all the crowd, so it's very quiet at night.

Room Tip: Book in advance, it's getting full quickly.

The place is clean, friendly owners, wifi works perfectly. Located in a quiet location for a good nights sleep but only a 2 minute walk to the beach and bars in town. Good value for money, would certainly stay again

Ryan, the owner, was amazing. He helped us book some day trips and came to our room to let us know our boat to Koh Phangan was cancelled and he would book it for another day. Our room was cleaned everyday so it was always tidy. So cheap but it doesn't feel like it. If I ever go back, it will be the only place I stay. We had an 8 person room and there were 6 of us traveling together, but the other 2 roommates ended up being amazing as well so it was a nice way to meet people.
