Koh Tao's original hostel. Located in central Sairee 2 minutes from the beach this is a great place to be based, on site there is a swimming pool and bar/restaurant and you are 2 minutes away from all the busiest bars on the island, but importantly we're located on a quiet soi (street) which means that you won't be kept awake by noise at night. We have 8 bed dormitories with AC and shared bathroom facilities with hot water showers and free WIFI.

Prices are per person per night.

The easiest way to get to the hostel is to take a taxi from the pier and ask to be brought to Koh Tao Backpackers Hostel or Davy Jones Locker (DJL) Diving or the Silver Sands Resort. A taxi should cost 50-100 baht per person unless you are the only one in the taxi in which case expect to pay more around 200 baht

Located Near

We're located near DJL Diving & just 15m from DJL Pool Bar/Restaurant which we use as our social area. We're on the quiet street between Choppers Bar & Grill and Lotus Bar/Resort, New Heaven Bakery is at one end of the street and Su Chilli restaurant is at the other end of the street on the main road as you come into Sairee Village from Mae Haad where the piers are.
