“Highly recommend this hostel!!!!”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

I randomly stumbled accross the hostel as it is so close to the pier...perfect location really if you have just done the long jounrey from Bangkok! I ended up extending my stay as i was so comfortable there. The guys Johnny and Rolf are amazing and so helpful. They have the travel shop to book all your tours, trains, boats etc, probably the most trustworthy place to hire your motorbike as you can get ripped off a lot on the island! In addition, there is also the Reef bar opposite where you can get discount and great to socialise with people who are staying at he hostel. All in all,everything you need! The hostel itself is great, very modern and super clean. The Seperate hot showers and toilets are lovely! The rooms are fab as you have your own reading lights and more than enough privacy for a dormitory..and i cannot stress enough how comfy the beds are! : ) Overall, i had such a pleasant stay there.

stayed here just after they opened and was glad I did, everything is new and really clean, beds are super comfortable and separated with walls so its a little private, good thing when you are sharing your bed ;)
staff were really helpful with info on the island, there is a great bar across the street that gives guests discounts on food and drink and has a free pool table, travel shop located beside the hostel also help get my boat tickets sorted out for me
overall great experience, thanks guys

Pretty much everthing was in way better condition than i expected it to be for that price on an island! Superfriendly staff - A/C worked perfect - A housekeeper pretty much constanly cleaning rooms and facilities.. not just once a day - the doorm-beds are seperated by walls within the room which made me feel like i had my private space - small reading light for every single bed - best location - proper w-lan and warm shower.
You also get a dicount for good food and drinks at the reef bar on the opposite site of the road. They have a free pool table and european football on a projector for those who are interested.

Only the rooms are a little bit dark because they don't have a very bright room light but you might appreciate that if you don't want to wake up every time a roommate comes in.. thats why you have your own reading light anyway.

What do you want more?

Rocked up to Koh Tao without a place to stay and my plan was to rent a motor bike and go looking for somewhere affordable and nice. I walked into the motorbike rental side of Koh Tao central and asked about a bike and if they knew any good but cheap places to stay and to my surprise they informed me that they were also a hostel! Great news! From that moment on I had everything I needed in such close proximity. Motor bike rental, an affordable hostel with helpful staff, air-con dorms, free internet, clean bathrooms and a restaurant/bar (which they also owned) just across the street.

It's located a convenient 30 seconds walk to the piers where the boats and ferries drop off and pick up tourists and a quick (and beautiful) motor bike ride to anywhere else in the island. I was DJing at the Wind Beach Resort and had no problem getting from Koh Tao Central Hostel to my gigs and anywhere else I wanted to go on this gorgeous island.

You are going to love staying at Koh Tao Central, I know I did!
