Llegué a este hostel porque perdí mi barco de regreso a Koh Panghan y la verdad que la atención fue muy buena, Me gustaron las instalaciones que bien son básicas están bien distribuidas. No te dan desayuno pero te dan descuentos para distintos negocios de ahí donde también puedes desayunar. Recomendable además por que tiene buen precio.

I arrived at this hostel because I lost my boat back to Koh Panghan and truth that attention was very good, I liked the facilities ,that are well basic, well distributed. Do not get breakfast but you get discounts for various businesses where you can enjoy breakfast. Also recommended that a good price.

I can highly recommend this hostel, it is clean, the beds are good and through the separation of the bunk beds, I slept very well without any disturbance of the other people.

The hostel is located next to the pier so you can walk from the ferry to there. Also you need to walk if you want to go out for party. For eating out or shopping or anything else there is a lot around.
I met with people on the little outside area and we had a great time. There is an english bar just across the street, so food and drinks are within walking distance. Also it is not too far from the beach. Except the main beach which is 10 minutes walking distance.

The hostel itself is really nice however the social aspect isn't the best.

The bar next door is essentially the common area but not enough people where using it as such. Many people during my stay were in groups and didnt socialize much. The area outside seats a few people but the hostel could use a larger common area.

Everything else was fine.

Its close enough to saree that you can walk (20 minutes) and you can rent bikes at the hostel. The bar next door closes relatively early so you wont be kept awake. The AC works fine and the bathrooms are always spotless.

If you come here and have trouble meeting people I would recommend doing the Koh Tao Bar crawl.

#central location #new and clean #sociable

In fact i stayed there twice. The location is very central near the piers, but if you're staying a longer period on the island you may move to a place near the famous Sairre Beach as well. I liked it especially because of the small porch to the street side, where you're able to make friends with all the (outgoing) hostel guests. The staff is also very helpful and friendly. I had a really good time there.

This hostel is in an excellent location close to all amenities and the major entry points to Koh Tao. I stayed in one of the larger dorms, and whereas some people had complained of some noise in the night, my earplugs protected me from this and I slept fantastically- even when I got up mega early.for diving. There was an issue with the air con while I was there, but it was quickly remidied and we were constantly updated on the progress. The whole hostel is immaculately clean and modern and was very comfortable. The biggest asset is the staff that are located next door in the travel agent. They are fun, helpful, willing to go the extra mile to help and overall just really good people. You can tell that Rolf (hope I spelled it right) the owner has put a lot of effort and work into the place and has a gebujne interest in people having a good stay. A fantastic choice for a sociable backpacker on a budget.

Stayed: March 2014
