Spent 3 nights at Simple Life and for what you pay this is a great hotel. The girls at the desk are great, upgraded our room and helped with booking tours and ferry rides. It's walking distance to fantastic restaurants and the beach. Bathroom could be nicer but again for what you pay its a good hotel for a few... More

This was a really good find. A great hotel in a great location and really good for the price. It was in walking distance of all the nightlife and best beaches but off the main strip so nice and quiet too.

We arrived at the hotel for a 3 night stay. We had already pre booked our stay so there was no problem checking in, the staff spoke English very well and they took a deposit of a 1000baht. We were in one of the basic rooms and it really was basic. I would go as far as to say one... More

Hotel is in a good location with the main pub area a short walking distance. The rooms were clean but could do with a freshen up. There was a constant sewer smell in the bathroom. The wifi was terrible. We had to re-enter the login details every 10 minutes.

This hotel is perfect place to stay in Koh Tao - its right in the centre but is pushed back slightly so not noisy at all but is only a minutes walk to bars and restaurants and about 5 mins to the beach! We had 4 very nice rooms next to each other which were clean and spacious. The only... More

It's in a good location and just set back from Sariee beach where all the beach bars and parties are. The hotel itself very basic, bathroom was vile, rooms very small, £40 per night maybe I was expecting a bit more. At check-in I felt the staff were taking the mick out of us. Would I return? No

My friend and I stayed only 2 nights in Ko Tao, and we agree Simple Life was an excellent choice. Located really close to Sairee beach, you can walk to nice snorkeling spots and also to enjoy the shops and bars around. The room was comfortable, clean and well equipped, nice bathroom, mini bar, desk, a front patio and even... More
