Reviewed 17 October 2013

1000B hotel room is clean and big with 3 beds. Shower have good pressure and water is warm. Outside is big construction side, because they make another hotel next to old one. So little a bit noisy day time. Good choice if you dont like bungalows.

I'm really surprised by the negative reviews about this place, I searched the whole of the Sairee Beach area and the bungalows in this place were by far the nicest for the money. They have lots options, the most basic bungalows being 500 baht a night, we had a 700 baht bungalow, it had a fan and no aircon but was huge, had a lovely veranda, really comfy chairs and bed, clean and big bathroom, shower was one of the best I've used in Thailand (it's cold but u don't need hot water here, at all) and the staff were really nice, they have other higher priced bungalows and a main hotel style building where our friends stayed in a fan room for 900 baht a night, also really really nice for the money. We are backpacking so I'm not comparing this to the Banyan Tree but for the budget end of the market this is definitely the best option in Sairee!

When you have to break your shower into 3 parts to let the sewage retreat back down the drain, you know you're in trouble!

We picked this place on Koh Tao as we wanted to be closer to the action on Sairee Beach. However, it turned out to be horrible to the point where I feared for my health!

The rooms were dilapidated, with holes in the walls and furnishings basically falling apart. The windows wouldn't even operate properly. The worst part was the bathroom. It stank of sewage (making the whole room smell) and sewage would literally back flow up the shower drainage hole.

The pillows were covered in mould inside the pillowcases and the bed was quite uncomfortable. Located right opposite Star Bar you are guaranteed to have ridiculously loud music which will keep you up till 3 in the morning even with earplugs in.

The people who run this place obviously don't care and are just running it into the ground. The worst part is, it isn't even cheap. Well over 1000bht a night for the kind of place I described! there are heaps of places on Koh Tao for cheaper and better and we checked out super quick and found one ourselves.

The best part is that the guy at reception ripped us off on a cab ride out too telling us it was a 250bht trip which turned out to be about 400 meters away.
