This hostel smelt so bad, especially the toilets which made me gag every time I went into them, I don't think this is the hostels fault as this was quite common around koh Tao but it was incredibly unpleasant. Aside from that the staff were really lovely the guy at the front desk couldn't have done more to help, it's quite over priced for what you get but koh tao is quite expensive. It's comfortable enough for budget back packers. There is no common area to hang out with friends though.
