I had a private room which is directly at the beach, if you switch of the fan you can hear the waves by night, which is very relaxing. There a many cosy places to...

Pretty pleased with Goodtime Hostel. I was a bit unlucky my first night, as I shared a dorm with 7 other people, and 4 of them decided to continue partying after the club downstairs closed at 2 am, and played music super loud from their own speakers on the balcony through the night, which made it impossible to sleep until...

Had a private room, was clean, no linen or towels, which can be expected. Electrical socket quite far from bed, a little less convinient. Shower was either boiling or cold drizzle. Staff very laid back and friendly. Young vibe, close to the fishbowl which is popular, you get a discount at the hostel's bar plus 2 other places; Bear in...

I stayed at GoodTimes in November and spent what I can safely say were 5 blissful days there. Waking up every morning to the water out front of the bar? Sure where else would you get it?

The best value place in Koh Tao. It is tidy and has an accommodating staff who strive to serve you best. My favorite part was the ocean side restaurant, what an amazing view. The only issue I had there was the live party downstairs at leo bar. It was quite loud most nights, but they turned the music down shortly...
