While stumbling around after a 28 hour journey from Pai, I came across this back packers. For 350 THB a night, it's super cheap for its location and on this island. It was a quick, easy and safe walk to the beach, bars, restaurants, and 7/11. The dorm rooms are large with a functioning air con and fan. The bathroom... More

We arrived to the pier in Koh Tao and hotel staff were there waiting to pick us up when we hadn't even contacted them with a time! We were then taken to the hotel and greeted with drinks and told about things to do in Koh Tao, amenities nearby and everything we needed to know. The rooms had everything we... More

I found Sun Smile on a walkabout to find a hostel. I know there is mainly a hotel part, but they have two 6 pax dorm rooms on the ground floor at 350 baht a night (for Air Con that is a STEAL!). Pro's: literally a two minute walk to restaurants, 7-11, cafes, the main Sairee beach and a 5... More

Because the price was great we didn't expect a large room, but this one was large, airy and wonderful. The staff here are super friendly and exceeded our expectations. they provide free sun umbrellas and beach towels. The location was also great.

Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. Room cleaned everyday, little extras like tea/coffee, dishes, water and fridge allowed us to have breakfast or lunch on the balcony if we wished. Good location only 5 mins from the beach and just off the main road, near 7/11 and restaurants.

We had a great stay at Sun Smile, the location was great for Sairee Beach with very friendly host. The motorbike rental guys seem a bit on the intimidating side until you get talking. Rooms are fine with comfy bed, sofa and telly, fridge with bottles water daily and a wet room as bathroom. Would definitely stay again!!
