Our room was really big and very clean. We got drinking...

Planned to stay 3 nights and stayed 6 the price was so good! For a hostel, it has a very bungalow feel to it.

We we're welcomed by the friendliest staff, with a huge smile, a drink and some information about Koh Tao. The room was really spacy and clean. Cleaning was everyday with fresh towels and bedding. Very well located close to the beach, restaurants and bars. Highly recommended!

Really calm area, and clean wide beds. Attached bath. Room is cleaned daily and they even make your bed ! Owner is helpful with explaining any doubts you have and arranges a drop off at the pier of you book tickets with him. Better than arranging a taxi honestly. All in all good place to stay.

We used Sun Smile's ticket and booking service for a day trip around the island and for fairy tickets. They were very nice, very helpful and professional. Highly recommended! (we have also had bad experiences in koh Tao to compare with)
