We arrived on Ko Tao at around 8pm after our boat was a little late. Immediately upon arriving we checked trip advisor to identify somewhere to stay for the night since all of the Dive companies with accommodation were already closed.

We booked Nirvana House through bookings.com (who thankfully don't accept online payment?!) and made our way there on foot only to find that the reception was closed - it was around 10pm by this time, so we anticipated it would be closed - but the number they had posted on the door to call on arrival ignored our calls. We tried knocking, and calling again several times, calling the reception too, at our own expense, but to no avail. After waiting around 30 minutes we left to find alternative accommodation which, luckily, we did!

Definitely do not trust this establishment with a 'same day' booking or if you know you'll be arriving after hours.

Also, we have since been contacted by bookings.com to suggest that we were a 'no show' and they were attempting to charge us a 'cancellation charge.' We have provided booking.com with all of the relevant information and are awaiting their response. Very disappointed with a usually reliable service.

We stayed here for about a week and also rented a scooter. Can't say anything but good things about this place. It;s good value, the people are friendly and helpful and you can rent a scooter without losing your passport here. All in all worth a recommendation!

Beautiful rooms, fridge, nice staff, they rent new motorbikes for fair prices, very good for getting a good night sleep, highly reccomended. Stayed there for 3 night and loved it! Got a tv which is a nice touch and a good location, don't take a taxi from the pier, you can walk and save you the 400 baht!

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for about 5 nights while we were diving on koh tao. If you are looking to stay in this part of the island (Mae head) then I would highly recommend it. The rooms are large, clean, and have decent air con and a fan. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is very close to the bars and restaurants and dive schools without being noisy. The shower did not have a huge amount of pressure but I think that is a reflection of an island with not much water generally and not a criticism of the guesthouse. I would definitely stay here again.

If you are staying in Mae head, this place is great. Rooms are clean, spacious, nicely designed with wood furniture. Bed is very large and very comfy with very nice clean sheets. Has fridge, tv (actually with a movie channel) is excellent value and everything you need.
Opposite is a great local thai restaurant and turning right up the hill is a stand with the finest BBQ chicken sticks I have tasted in Thailand! Also if you head right out of the hotel and right at the castle roundabout there are several good thai places to eat along this road.
They had some wifi troubles while we were there but gave us the password for guesthouse next door.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back mean you avoid any road noise.
